Meeting virtually during this pandemic has its limitations and changes the way we go forward doing many things.
Our club is joining the NGGives challenge which is benefitting the House of Lazarus. This initiative by the North Grenville Community Fund is aimed at providing family Christmas hampers for those in need. Please support this initiative.
On the weekends of November 21-22 and 28-29, our club will be parading a float through different areas of our community to spread some Christmas cheer. Food donations will be accepted for anyone who wishes to donate.
Stay safe and take care of each other.
This year's Kemptville Youth Centre's annual golf tournament was held at the Rideau Glen. Participants were blessed with great weather and socially distanced friendship. The event, which is a major fundraiser, surpassed expectations due to the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic. Pictured below are members of the event's prime sponsor, The Rotary Club of Kemptville and members of the Youth Centre.
 
One of Kemptville Youth Centre's major fundraisers is its annual book fair. This is a massive undertaking as thousands of books must be sorted before the fair opens to the public. Pictured below are members of the Kemptville Rotary Club who lent a hand in this endeavour.
 
As we kick off a new Rotary year, our virtual guest this evening was District Governor Hadi Mortada.
In 2003 Hadi was introduced to Rotary by a friend who was a member. He subsequently joined the Rotary Club of West Ottawa. He told us the thing he enjoys about Rotary is the fellowship. You meet interesting people, have a chance to travel and work on unique projects.
He believes that opportunities are there for us and that we need to take advantage of them. His goals for this year are for Rotary to be visible and stay aligned. He believes that we need to keep Rotary accessible and affordable. We also need to change the mindset of “that is what we have always done”. We need to collaborate with other like-minded organizations and have fun!
If you are interested in joining a community minded group, please contact President Nancy.
Due to the current public health  situation, our club will not be physically gathering until further notice. Our meetings will be held virtually for the foreseeable future. Please follow public health directives and stay safe. Thank you to those on the front lines for their efforts in keeping us safe.
