Yvonne Buys led this project from conception to completion in warp speed, and upon launch on Thursday, almost 50% of the bottles were SOLD!  Thanks to all the production and support team:  Yvonne Buys, Chris Compeau, Michelle Kosoy, Bill Pennell, Dave Robinet, Kinsip and Nymans Farms. 
Rotarians are asked to purchase (for personal use, gifts or resale) to help sell all 500 bottles in aid of the Back the Build Hospital Fund.  Cases of 12 or individual bottles are available from Yvonne by cheque or cash.  Call her at 647-200-5682 to arrange pick-up at her home, or in person at the Rotary meeting on Tuesday at the Legion. 
The Bottle Depot is now re-opened from the pandemic lockdown as of February 16, 2021.   Please bring your bottles and beer cans for recycling for deposit returns or donations.   Your patronage and support of the Rotary Club of Wellington is deeply appreciated.
Wellington Rotary thanks David & Joni Gillingham of Domaine Darius for their generosity and Service-Above-Self for donating their materials, time, and expertise to make and sell the Rotary Red Wine fundraiser. Proceeds of the initiative exceeded $21,000, which will be included in the New PEC hospital building fund.

The current members wished to erect a memorial to honour our members who have passed away while in Rotary service with our Club. It was decided to place it on the Rotary Millennium Trail kiosk site at the foot of West Street where it meets the Millennium Trail.

-The County Experience- 
Wellington Rotary's Online Auction 
for PEC Hospital Fund
Sept 15th to Oct 15th , 2020

CONGRATULATIONS to all the winning bidders in the Auction!
The Club has convened a fundraising dinner and auction for six years to raise money for various community causes; for the last three years for the Picton Hospital Rebuilding Fund. For 2020, it was expected that we would repeat the event until COVID-19 hit and large in-person event were not allowed. A decision was made to do another auction but hold it online, which happened from September 15-October 15. It was very successful, raising $25,000 for the building fund, contributing to the Rotary Club’s commitment to raise $400,000 by 2022.
The Rotary Red Cuvee Wine at Domaine Darius went on sale in August 2020.  It was available if you visited Domaine Darius and asked for it specifically to winemaker David Gillingham or his wife Joni.  It sold for $40 per bottle and there were only 55 cases available.  
Many Thanks to Charles, Kimball, and Liz Lacey for making and selling the Rotary White Wine, and donating the proceeds to the Wellington Rotary Foundation's New Hospital Building Fund.

David Hepburn presents a cheque for $400 to Past President Mike Lattner, chair of Wellington Rotary's bottle returns depot operations, as a donation to the new PEC hospital building fund.  During the COVID-19 physical distancing lockdowns, many residents of the County were unable to bring their bottle returns for re-use/recycle and collect their deposit refund. David and Many Happy Returns collected the bottles from curb-sides and donated them to the Rotary's bottle returns depot.
Our regular Tuesday morning breakfast Rotary Meetings have been suspended for the next little while, in support of efforts for social distancing of participants to fight the COVID-19 virus.   We will investigate ways to keep in touch via digital communications means such as video-conferencing.  In the meantime, here are a couple of humorous pics.  Cheers, and keep well.
Congratulations on another successful Family Day Rotary Free Soup Event on February 17, 2020.  Our Club coordinated over 15 soup providers from across the County providing free soup for everyone participating in the Community Family Day in Wellington.  We must have served over 350 bowls of soup (or at least it felt like it for those of us who were part of the dish washing crew).
The Wellington Pumpkinfest parade was a very well attended community event where the Rotary Club of Wellington entered our annual Pumpkinfest Float and assisted with the weighing in the Pumpkin contest. Below are three Rotarians Bill Mitchell, Michelle Kosoy, and Parker Gallant, dressed as the Scarecrow,  Cowardly Lion, and Tin Man, respectively.
