President's  Message

Our friends of Rotary are growing and that is having a direct impact on the functions and stress placed on the members of the club for the bottle depot. I would like to put a challenge out to all of our members. Over the next month and through to the end of October, I would ask that each member find a friend, a neighbor or family member to sign up as a Friend of Rotary. If we can each bring get one person to sign up, it would benefit our club greatly.  Who knows, a few of those friends may even want to join the club when they see what a great membership that we have.
I have personally reached out to a number of my neighbours, and they have signed up.
Following our meeting on the 10th of Sept. we got a nice surprise.  One of the Water Week members dropped by and gave us an envelope with $1650.00 cash as proceeds from the events.
I received an email from Steve Rutledge, from the Whitby Sunrise Club. He asked me to pass along his greatest thanks to our club for the continued support and donation to his Laos Project. Our donation will help him purchase water filters for two projects that he has on the go.



Last Week: Cheryl Anderson - Past President, Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory 

There is a bird observatory on Prince Edward Point because it is an ideal location for a Migration Monitoring Station. Large numbers of migratory birds land and rest in the area because it’s location is the shortest distance across eastern Lake Ontario from landfall on the U.S. side of the shore.

The facility conducts regular population surveys of migratory birds and waterfowl counts. Birds are netted, counted, banded, examined for age, health and size and then released again. With the exception of a trained professional bird bander, all of the work is done by volunteers. In addition to this core activity, the observatory works in 3 other areas.

Annually, it publishes a booklet called Nature Matters which identifies important dates and activities for the upcoming year at the observatory. The booklet contains informative maps and brief information items and high quality photography.

The observatory also has an educational program delivery dimension as well. The facility provides a program called NatureHood, a national curriculum administered and developed by Nature Canada.

Finally, the observatory hosts or sponsors a range of related events and activities. These include such events as guided walking tours, photography workshops, fossil hunts and naturalist painting classes.

The Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory is a registered charity, and needs to generate funding for all of its work.

Rotary Song Lyrics:
R-O-T-A-R-Y, that spells Rotary.
R-O-T-A-R-Y, is one big family
From north to south,
and east to west,
He profits most who serves the best,
R-O-T-A-R-Y, that spells Rotary
