May 18 weather held until the end of the tournament to make for an amazing day!  We were able to donate $10,000 to each of 3 hospitals that will go toward research and equipment in our local community.  Members from Headwaters, William Osler and UHN joined us to volunteer and receive the donation.  260 golfers, 70 sponsors and 40 volunteers help to make the day such a huge success!  Thanks to everyone for their ongoing support.
Proud to induct Chandler Nicol to the family of Rotary

The Hershey Centre
Bolton Rotary was recognized as a community partner in the AED-CPR Program that has trained more than 17,000 students in life-saving skills in 60 schools across Peel Region. 
Our club joined others to donate towards the Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines 3 years ago.  Some of the money went right away to lend a hand for the immediate emergency.
We were successful with $140,000 usd Global Grant to refurbish 5 schools that were still in need of rebuilding and refurbishing.
We loaded 2 large 40 foot sea containers with school desks, chairs, books, sports equipment etc. and dried soup, apples etc. A big thank you to all.
We raised over 11,000 at our Christmas auction and were proud to donate it to Vitanova, a local  foundation ...helping put lives back together.
Excellent day in the parade with a record crowd!  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Once again Murray & Aldo delivered a Truckload of items for the Shoeboxes, to Samaritan’s Purse, Kitchener.
Last year over 340,000 Shoeboxes were filled and delivered worldwide from Kitchener to the needy children Worldwide.
On Monday October 31, a handful of Palgrave and Bolton Rotarians had the immense pleasure of surprising Teresa Colasanti (Executive Director) and Ailsa Stanners-Moroz (Program Manager) of the Caledon Parent-Child Centre with the fantastic news that our Clubs joined together to co-fund a full year of programming for the Centre's "Let's Get Together" program.
 
This program is one that our Club has been involved with for a few years and have had the pleasure of meeting some of the families who are in the program when they came to speak. For those who may not be familiar with it, this program is a 2x per month evening program for families with children with special needs. Parenting a child who has special needs is at times a long and arduous journey.  There are times when one feels completely overwhelmed and hopeless.  A place where people understand the joys, successes and the heartaches.  Where parents can share information, resources, opinions and feelings. Where people don’t judge.  Where they know that their children will be cared for and cared about.
 
17 of our club members met to brainstorm, discuss and share ideas to help shape the future of our club...stay tuned for action items to follow
A very successful day for our club.  The 6th Annual Haunted Hill Run was our very best ever. 
 
Thanks to the members and their spouses and friends that ran or walked or volunteered.
The road marshals, chili, music, prizes, set up crew, parking, slideshow and videos, registration, volunteer desk, take down crew were all AWESOME!
My biggest thank you to everyone for all your help. 
Daiki & Aldo with RI Pres. Elect Ian Riseley (from Australia) & Liam (Exchange student from Australia) at meeting in Brampton.

Our club funding the program at Humberview, Robert f Hall and St Mikes.
Now every year ALL grade 9 students in Caledon will be learning this life saving skill.
Coleraine Park Environmental Restoration Project 
 
Toronto Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), Town of Caledon, James Dick Construction, Rotary Clubs of Bolton & Palgrave & Kinsmen Club of Bolton
 
We completed this Project on schedule Friday May 13 and the TRCA Field Team did an excellent job machine planting all the 34 trees behind and adjacent to the Caledon Animal Shelter on Coleraine Drive.  The staff & volunteers of the Caledon Animal Shelter and the community dog walkers, not to mention their dogs, will greatly appreciate the shade from these trees on hot sunny days because there were only a few trees in these off-leash areas.

Bob and Sherrin presented images of their
recent trip to India.  This team of Rotarians visited many school sites and did a polio innoculation day.  With only 7 current new cases,
and continued vigilance we can succeed with polio eradication in 2016.  A truly awesome accomplishment spearheaded by Rotary.

This is the 2nd phase of the work done at Las Carretas School.....the old one where the boy was trying to drink water from the tap....but no water, also where the dogs and pigs were in the mud on the street.  Now they have 2 more classrooms, Toilets & wash station with clean water (there is a water tank on the roof).
 
Good work done by RC Gualan
 
North Hill and the baseball diamonds here are a couple of pictures of the Baseball pavilions we helped support along with the Town of Caledon, The Bolton Braves and the Kinsmen.
This the the Kinsmen's 50th anniversary this year so we were very happy to partner with them.
 
The picnic tables will be added in the spring and plaque commemorating the site
