(Initiatives Committee Report)

President's Message 
Fellowship is a key element of the success of Wellington Rotary.  The pandemic has wreaked havoc on this Club mantra for the past 16 months.  But, our combined efforts to follow Public Health guidelines, and roll up our sleeves at the vaccination clinics, are finally paying off!   With Ontario entering Step 3 of the reopening plan on July 16th, we are able to resume our Tuesday morning meetings at the Legion.  
For the time being, the set up will be similar to our previous “COVID” layout, with 2 persons per table, and tables spaced 2 meters apart.  Similar to restaurant protocol, you will have to wear a mask into the facility, but can take it off once you are sitting at your table.  We will target to have the doors open at 6:30 for those that want to do a bit of socializing before the meeting starts.    
At least for the next few weeks, just coffee and muffins will be available, at a cost of $1 each.  I am hopeful that sometime in August, we may be able to enjoy a greater breakfast offering … let’s keep our fingers crossed!
I am looking forward to seeing most of you in person on Tuesday morning.  Zoom will be available to those that are unable to meet in person.
President Trudy Brown

Last Week:  Trudy Brown (President's Address)

The meeting was called to order at 7:07 a.m.. Sargent At Arms Sharon Campbell reported that there were 27 members on zoom, present and accounted for, including 2 guests, Peter Campbell and Christine Dimitris joining for the their third meeting.  Liz Bosma provided a live performance of O'Canada.  On the topic of member's health, it was mentioned that Liz Lacey was now recovering at home, and we all agreed that a get-well card would be sent to her.

Trudy provided her President's Address, where she mentioned that this year's Rotary tag-line is 'Serve to Change Lives'.  Our Club's goals were presented, with getting back to face-to-face meeting and renewing fellowships amongst members being one of the prominent objectives.  Trudy also mentioned targeting one new initiative that serves to change lives.  She introduced all the different committees and chairs of the committees and urged all members to volunteer and participate.  She mentioned once again that a key characteristic of our Club is to 'Participate, not just Donate'.

Colin Fredericks provided an update on planning for the golf tournament.  He was to meet with the new owner of the Wellington on-the-Lake golf course.  Bill Hurst volunteered to help Colin plan the golf event.

Christine Dimitris mentioned that she likes organizing events and Barry Davidson made quick note of that, as he is looking for a co-chair to organize the next annual fundraiser auction/dinner.

Phyo provided a quick update on progress of the Kate's Rest activities.  He indicated that John Weins has volunteered to donate his time and expertise to complete the bathroom/shower construction, and that Liz Bosma, Linda Donville, along with Jen Abrams from John Howard Society met with Ryan Brough to understand how we might support the young man in pursuing additional education.

Bill Mitchell solicited additional volunteers for the Bottle Depot.  Ken Robertson indicated that the vaccine clinic may end after about six weeks, and that volunteers from Wellington-on-the-Lake community have stepped up to fill required time-slots.

The meeting adjourned with the four way test, shortly after 8 a.m.
