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.
