The last two weeks have been busy ones for the club. After weeks of preparation, the Canada Day parade went ahead on July 1st without rain this year.
As is befitting, a float with the flags of all the provinces and territories presented the country from sea, to sea, to sea.
Below Rotarian Norma marches with the float displaying all of the entrants to the Rotary Duck & Decoy race. This was a good opportunity to once again showcase the efforts of our local businesses and community partners.
And nothing says summer like sun and a BBQ. Club members provide nourishment to the festivity goers.
The following Tuesday we had our club changeover of officers at Blue Gypsy Winery. Proprietor Louis Gaal gave members an overview of his products and a tasting.
Finally President-elect Jo-Anne took the oath of office to conclude our meeting.
Our meeting on the 11th was at the Swords & Ploughshares' Museum. Major Mike Calnan explained the collection and showed us what was inside. Unfortunately the outside portion of the programme was cancelled due to the typhoon.
Next week's meeting - Camp Merrywood @ 1700 hours
