A wonderful evening at the Burning Kiln Winery as we inducted Jim & Linda Simpson and re-inducted Wayne Wormald as members; and inducted new officers for the year ahead beginning July 1st.
More photos should appear in the photo album.
How many Rotarians and friends does it take to erect 3 sign posts? Only five, apparently, if you have a tractor with auger to dig the holes. The Community Garden will soon have a new sign, and a new name in memory of its founder John Race. The posts are ready now, and the sign will go up in few days. Stay tuned.

Angi Shaer is clearly proud of her homeland Argentina, and she gave us some hints why. Part of it seems to be weather related. "I was freaking out in October" at 1 degree Celsius. And school is out at 12:45 AM daily - what's not to like about that!
Angi was very thankful and complementary about her host families: the Petrie's, Guilmette's and Schneiders - new lifelong parents, brothers and sisters now.
The Algonquin adventure in February made a real impression, though, and stretched Angi to do things she would never have expected possible, and to become someone she would never have anticipated. The Youth Exchange program has that effect on most. Life changing experiences, shaping amazing young people to become even more amazing young people with Rotary ideals and Rotary goals.
Have a wonderful time on the bus trip across the USA, Angi. We'll look forward to hearing about it! Thanks for coming into our lives at Norfolk Sunrise.

In the picture Nancy Sherwin is presenting a cheque from Rotary Club of Norfolk Sunrise for $2000 to Dan Rielly, President of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 79 in Simcoe. This will assist the Legion to purchase new tables for the upstairs Memorial Hall which is currently being refurbished.

Possibly our last opportunity for a group picture with the original Sunrise logo. Time to move on.
1) Motion from Community Concerns Committee (to be presented at June 16 meeting):
That RCNS provide $2000 to Simcoe Legion to go toward purchase of new tables for the upstairs hall.
Background : The Legion is refurbishing the upstairs hall to provide an improved venue for community events. Total cost of new tables is estimated at between $3500 and $6000.
2) Update on Sunrise Trail project : The widening has been completed between 13th and 14th Concessions. As part of the trail improvement a link will be made with the Lions Ball Park at Davis Drive to facilitate access from the trail to the Park facilities. This will complete the $10000 expenditure from the Sunrise Trail Restricted Account.
From the Brazil convention. Reiterated by Sec Gen John Hewko, originally spoken by our founder Paul Harris. Permission to do danged near anything with our clubs.
