This Fall at Boundary Rotary This year’s theme Light Up Rotary
TheBoundary Rotary Club has been engaged in its usual activities this fall. There has been a book sale on the first Saturday of each month. The Christmas Sale is coming up on December 6 (9:00-12:00 at the Rotary Bookstore in Beebe.) There will be candy canes and a free book for every young reader as well as a visit by Santa Claus at 10:30. We have books in French and English on every subject you can imagine. All are very welcome to the bookstore.
With funds raised at the bookstore and at the annual golf tournament, Rotary supports many local initiatives: the Haskell Library, Weir Park, Border Minor Hockey, CAB Redicker, Massawippi Valley Health Center, Camp Massawippi. Also there is a $750 vocational scholarship presented to a Canadian and American student each year. Boundary sends local students to a number of short leadership programs both in Canada and the US and gives prizes at Derby Elementary, Stanstead College and Sunnyside Elementary.
Last Christmas at the Rotary Bookstore
One meeting of the Boundary was held with the clubs from Lyndonville and Newport. Each club explained its fund raisers and projects and everyone learned from the other clubs.
At the last meeting Rotarian Dick Fletcher gave a talk on the Rotary Foundation since this month is Foundation month. As most people know there are Rotary Clubs all over the world all a part of Rotary International. There is also the Rotary Foundation which funds projects in all countries. Every year each Rotarian is asked to donate money to the Foundation; the goal is $100 per Rotarian or $2.00 each week… or whatever a Rotarian can afford. This money is invested for three Rotarian at Hospital Albert Schweitzer
in Haiti, a project supported by the Boundary Club years and then a percentage of it returned to the district which donated it. Then the district can decide how that money is spent. In our district a club can apply for matching grants for a local or international project. Last year the Boundary received a matching grant to help Camp Massawippi
