Norfolk Sunrise News

On Saturday August 22nd, 2015 on a beautiful sunny day 19 motorcycle riders headed out from Simcoe on a ride to the Niagara area on the Rotary Club of Norfolk Sunrise's annual Ride for Rotary to raise money towards Rotary's End Polio Now campaign. Through matching grants by the Government of Canada and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we raised enough funds to vaccinate 11,000 children.

We had a great day of fun & fellowship riding through some beautiful countryside and stopped for lunch, a raffle and door prize presentations at Cave Spring Winery's Jordan House, before heading back to Norfolk County later in the day.
 
Thanks to Dave Nicolle and Jim Oliver - Ride Organizers!
 

 
 
Our guest and speaker this week is District Governor Kevin Crosby!
 
Please come in good time to meet and greet, and get one of the good seats.
 
Following the meeting, Kevin will be meeting with the RCNS Board to find out what makes our club tick.
 
 
 
 

 
 
The weather held off perfectly last Monday for the Derby, a community service our club provides as part of the Lynn River Music and Arts Festival.  Keith Flexman's organizing team had done their planning and organizing well, and lots of RCNS members and other volunteers showed up to help out.  The corporate challenge, a first for this year and organized by Wayne Wormald, added some levity. 
 
There were several photo finishes, and Gail Bouw's camera provided the proof as Barb Tanner-Billings risked her life as flag person. 
 
All contestants were winners, but some took home more booty than others. Some photos below tell part of the story.
 
 

 
 
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.
 

 
 
Community Services Committee Chair Nancy Sherwin accepts plaque from The Children's Aide Society of Haldimand Norfolk recognizing the continuing support from Norfolk Sunrise
 

 
 
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.
 

 
 
Thanks to Rotary members’ vision in 1985 of a polio-free world, we’ve made incredible progress and are closer than ever to ending polio. Get involved: http://www.endpolio.org/ — with Bill Gates.  Click on https://www.facebook.com/rotary/videos/10153969110089552/ for an important message from Bill Gates to mark the 30th anniversary of Rotary's Polio Plus Program
