The Rotary Club of Bolton recently ran a challenge in the community to donate to
 the Water First Training and Education Drinking Water Internship.  A 15-month paid internship for young Indigenous adults to be trained as Water Operators. We are thrilled with the $8811. that has been donated and will be matched by our club, district and Rotary International.  Individuals, schools, Social Justice classes, golfers, seniors, other clubs…so many came forward with generous donations.  This brought awareness to the plight of safe drinking water in our Indigenous communities and the power of Rotary to take action.  Thank you to everyone for your heartfelt support and involvement.

26 years after the facility was built, the long-awaited $10-million expansion to Rotary Place in Bolton, the home the Caledon Seniors Centre with an anticipated completion by the fall of 2022.  It will include three new multi-purpose rooms, a new commercial kitchen, a new OPP satellite station, storage space and connection to the Caledon Centre for Recreation and Wellness.

Well, another successful year with our mini-tournament format last Thursday, September 30! We reached our golfer limit and thrilled with great sponsors so we can continue to do great work through their generosity. Some of the proceeds will go to Caledon Kids First and Water First projects.  


Rotarians, family and friends were helping with planting on hwy 50 and garden maintenance at the Peace Park on Glasgow Road on Saturday.  We haven't been able to do the work through Covid but happy to have the community cleanup happen!  
   It was important for us to recognize and honor the front-line workers in our community.  Plants went to local EMS, Fire, Police, nursing homes in the spirit of the Rotary motto 'Service Above Self'.  
our donation helping Guides rebuild the eco-system.

The new pollinator garden project at the Albion Bolton Branch of the Caledon Public Library has taken flight. 

Eventually brimming with Black-eyed Susan, Wild Bergamot, Wild Columbine, Wild Strawberry, and more, along with its winged guests the garden will be a spectacular show. But it’s not all about the obvious beauty.

To quote Jode Roberts, Senior Projects Strategist with the David Suzuki Foundation, “Pollinators are a good indicator of the health of an ecosystem, but right now, they’re losing the fight against habitat loss and climate change.”

Planting team

The helping hands to bring the beautiful CPL garden to life have been more plentiful than the colours of a butterfly’s wings.

Town of Caledon staff removed the sod. TRCA delivered over 200 native plants, 30 each of 7 different varieties, and loaned CPL an assortment of planting implements.

Janice Fisher, a Butterflyway Ranger, along with the Second Bolton Girl Guide Unit, got their hands dirty helping CPL staff with the planting. The Guides group also grew seedlings to complement the established plants from seeds donated by CPL’s own Seed Library and TRCA.
A generous donation from the former Bolton and District Horticultural Society allowed CPL to add to the adult and children’s gardening collection in the Library.

Soon a Butterflyway sign will adorn the garden and a rain barrel, currently being painted by the Guides, will be ready for CPL to apply a clear coat and hook up to the building’s downspout, providing water for the garden.

Saturday was so much fun distributing the egg painting kits to those who had pre-ordered! Hey, do you know the Easter Bunny's favourite dance?.....hip hop, of course! Members of the Bolton Community Crew, Crock-a-doodle and Rotary were there to wish everyone a Happy Easter!  Since we weren't able to offer the community walk Along The Bunny Trail, this was a great opportunity to partner with others and help 400 kids have a special craft experience.
 INAUGURAL opening at the Los Limones School in Gualan Guatemala. This school for 200 students was dedicated to Hectorine Villanovich.  Aldo was sad not to be able to attend due to flight restrictions but know the club will do us proud!

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.

The new Murray Stewart Trail through Bolton Camp was much appreciated by Haunted Hill runners and the community at large this fall ! Take a walk through the woods on the new fallen snow this Christmas and enjoy nature at it's best !
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.
