 75th anniversary of United Nations/Rotary involvement.  Did you know?  Rotary was instrumental in establishing the United Nations following the Second World War.  From April to June 1945, delegations from 50 nations attended the United Nations Conference on international organization in San Francisco, with the task of writing a charter which was acceptable to all of them. Rotary International was one of 42 organizations asked to serve as consultants.
 
On April 10 a live-stream event will feature notable service projects and offer “behind-the-scenes" talks with leaders from the United Nations and the Rotary world. Full details and free registration here: https://www.75yearsofaction.live/
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.
 We have partnered with Bolton Community Crew and Crock-a-doodle to distribute 400 decorating kids to local children as a fun project through the pandemic.  
Melissa, Sarah, Rita, Andrew and Ross were on hand to present the cheque to Crock-a-Doodle and Bolton Business Crew in support of the Easter Egg decorating project for local children.  
 
 
RI's new area of focus: Supporting the environment.  There's no better way to celebrate than participating in the first ever Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup on April 24, 2021.  So on Saturday 24th our club members will do a spring cleanup, of the parklands along the Humber, in our Peace Park on Glasgow Road.  
 
The Bolton Rotary Peace Park is located on Glasgow Road. We recently replaced a few of the flags that needed a refresh.  Represented here are Caledon, Ontario, Canada, United Nations and Rotary International.  Can't wait for spring to spend more time in this tranquil setting.    
 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!
Many of our Rotarians and family members volunteered at the 'Forgetful Elf' drive-thru at Albion Hills on Dec 11 and 12.  Some of the roles included entrance greeters, scene animators, traffic control, Santa's helpers.  Great fun!  The kids loved the drive through the enchanted forest and a chance to solve the elf's situation in a chat with Santa himself!
Proud to support Caledon Meals on Wheels in their benevolent program for seniors through the Covid crisis. Our $2,000. donation will be matched by Bolton Tim Hortons Restaurants are Matching our Meals in 2020. They will be matching donations dollar for dollar up to $7500 this holiday season from November 24th to December 15th.
We were able to loan one of our long-time sponsors some of our Haunted Hill inflatables this year since we were unable to host the run as usual.  What a spooky entrance!  Happy Halloween everyone!
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.  
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.  
Ed Broeders donating 1000 masks to Dorothy Davis,  Executive Director of Caledon/Dufferin Victim Service. 
 
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.

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.
