We received a letter recognizing our support of this very worthwhile program.   Rotary has partnered with ShelterBox Canada to provide relief in emergency shelter and tools to many families who have lost everything in a natural disaster.  
We are pleased and proud to honor one of our part members by donating to a school project in Guatemala where they are naming it in Hectorine Villanovich's memory.  The Rotary Club of Burlington Lakeshore is spearheading the project to provide water, toilets, wash stations, drinking fountains, larger kitchen and meals so 700 children can get an education.
It was so nice to see a good crowd at Sammut's home last evening!  We were able to stay outside to keep the gathering safe.  The weather co-operated BIG TIME as a huge black cloud passed right over us but no rain.  A beautiful evening for a summer celebration.  
Proud to receive this recognition from Kyle Seeback, MP Dufferin-Caledon for the food vouchers from Garden Foods toward groceries for local residents during these difficult times.

Bolton Rotary and Garden Foods has provided
$12,500 in grocery cards to be distributed to families very quickly, they will supplement non-perishable hampers that we continue to make available to low income families. The Exchange has well over 300 families that rely on our food support to maintain a healthy diet. Your kindness ensures fresh produce, eggs, milk, poultry and lots of other nutritious food is provided to many Caledon residents during these incredibly challenging days.


Firoz Khan, President of Banas Stones in Bolton, donated 10,000 face masks to the Rotary Club of Bolton to distribute. On Friday, April 17, Ed Broeders, Ross Gray and Doug Prince, of the Rotary Club distributed those masks, and they were graciously and happily received.We started at the Vera Davis Centre, they received 2,000; next on to CCS where we dropped off a further 2,000;  2,000 more went to the King Home; and then cross country over to Bethel Hospice where we gave 1,000.  Another of our members, Dave Sammut, is delivering 500 up to Matthews House in Alliston.  We have also heard from local banks, food stores and pharmacies that they could all use whatever we can distribute.We are thankful to Firoz at Banas Stones for his donation and are happy to be supporting our front line workers during these unprecedented times
So much fun to watch these girls in action on Saturday when we presented them with a cheque for $6,000. to support this great organization.

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.
