Our first meeting of 2020 was a semi-business meeting where we had a debrief of our calendar fundraiser and a general catch-up with each other. Joining us for the evening was Rotarian Bob Milne from the Rotary Club of Crieff, Scotland. Bob is in the area visiting family.
On the good news front, Rotarian Ben and his wife Esther have a new baby sister for son Harrison. May baby Erin bring them much joy!
We are recharged and as a club are looking forward to a happy and productive New Year.
Our speakers this evening were Raymond Lemay and Phil McNeely from the Rotary Club of Orleans Rotary Climate Action Team. They presented climate change information to the club as well as information on how to form a climate action team.
 
 
Following a lively question and answer discussion, President Nancy thanked our guests for their presentation.

This past Saturday was a busy one, with members of the club transitioning from our cash calendar fundraiser to our annual food drive during the Santa Claus Parade. Thanks to our community for their support in helping us support those less fortunate.
The winner of this year's senior award was Andrew Ferguson. Andrew's $500 bursary cheque was presented on behalf of our Rotary Club by President Nancy and Past-President Joanne.
Last Friday, Saturday and Sunday, members of our club ran the front of house for the sold out production of Shake, Rattle and Roll. This musical was a collaboration of various musical groups and individuals in support of Kemptville and District Home Support Senior's Community Services. Pictured below are members of the cast and production crew. Thanks to all who attended and supported this function. The production's three day run raised $15,379 for this community service.
