Boundary Rotary Notes
Rotary Bookstore in Beebe
Last Saturday Boundary held its monthly book sale and the proceeds will be very helpful in our projects in the community. ow the club just asks for a donation and no longer specifies prices. The students from Stanstead college have been coming to the store once a week to help neaten and to shelve all our newly-donated books. Their help has been much appreciated many thanks to Carmen and Tanya and your great team of students.
PETS… What is that?
President Elect Allan Smith is soon off to the President Elect Training Seminar (PETS). This three-day training session prepares club members to take on the responsibilities of President. Allan has been president before and is a seasoned Rotarian but PETS provides information on the new procedures and programs of Rotary International. Also, it is very motivating to meet so many incoming Presidents. Even the incoming President of Rotary International will be in attendance. He is from Sri Lanka.
Rotary Club of the Boundary is planning for two major events. On April 27 there will be an international membership event at the Haskell. Invitations will be appearing soon. Watch this space for more information and the invitation. Everyone is welcome to attend this event to learn about Rotary and becoming a member.
Rotarians David Oliver and an Draper are preparing for the final workshop to be given in the club’s Guyana project. The Rotary Community Health Project is in its fourth and final year. Previous workshops have prepared teams of trainers from isolated Amerindian communities to offer training in their villages on Preventative health and first aid and food and nutrition. Last year forty young people were trained in illage Leadership. More soon, on those year’s exciting activities.
Participants in the illage Leadership Workshop present their group’s work, Kurukubaru, Guyana 2014.
