President's Message

Thank you everyone for your support of last weekend’s Foundation Walk. The weather cooperated with our walk down the Millennium Trail followed by lovely refreshments in Margo’s back yard. It was nice that so many members and their partners were able to join the walk, and it was wonderful to have our AG Brenda Hellyer join us. Also, many thanks for the generous support for the Foundation, we raised $610 in pledges which may be a new Club record.

Below are photos of more of our Friends of Rotary who are very active volunteers at our Bottle Depot.

On Thursday, I dropped by to see Reg Gemmell and present him with a birthday card signed by the Club, at which Reg expressed his appreciation to his fellow members. At 90 years of age, Reg still looks as bright and dapper as ever!  



On a side note, I spoke again with the Legion’s president on Oct 14th and confirmed with him that groups of up to 25 people are still able to meet at the Legion.

In closing, I would like to congratulate QHC Board Chair David MacKinnon for his wonderful and very informative ZOOM talk last Wednesday (Oct 21) covering the QHC’s vision for the future of health care delivery across our region. Well done David!

President Howard

Last Week:
Denise Wenzel
(Quilts of Valor)

President Howard opened the meeting with a “full house” at the Legion including Denise & Warren Wenzel and Dot Mitchell and eight members joining by Zoom.
Dawn Introduced Denise who heads Trenton Friends of Quilts for Valour which are part of the project for injured members of the Canadian Forces and others, including veterans, to received hand-made quilts. To-date over fifteen thousand five hundred quilts have been given out. All the work is entirely voluntary and the cost of materials is around $250 per quilt which many people have contributed to. Denise also shared anecdotes about recipients who have been given them. She was thanked by John I.
Bill’s need for bottle depot volunteers for Wednesday was filled.
Barry up-dated the Club on the results of the on-line auction, especially which types of items were most popular and that the goal of $25,000 was reached. Mike continued with a report on aspects of the auction plus the fact that all the Rotary red wine has now been sold with a profit of almost $25,000. Ken thanked the special efforts of Barry, Mike and Michelle.
The Club in-house Foundation Walk on Sunday was a big success.
A cheque has been donated to the Canadian Wildlife Federation in memory of a deceased supporter. AG Brenda Hillier has attended both a meeting and the returns depot recently. The pumpkin weigh-in went off well with drive-through viewing.
Debbie McDonald Moynes contacted President Howard to request drivers for Meals on Wheels delivery in the Wellington area.
David McKinnon is presenting at a Zoom meeting at 3.30 on Wed 21 about the Quinte Health Board and the current situation.
Lana asked if members are wishing to donate $30 per child for the Christmas Angel campaign.
The meeting closed at 8.13 a.m. with the four way test.

Domaine Darius Wellington Rotary Red Cuvee
Wellington Rotary and Domain Darius winery present 
David Gillingham's limited edition Rotary Cuvee 2018.
The idea of a Rotary wine to raise fund for the new hospital building fund was hatched by Past President Brian McGown and winemaker David Gillingham.  
The result is David's unique and exquisite blend of Marquette & Petite Pearl.  The Marquette was sourced from Brian & Lyn McGowan's Hollyhill vineyards.  Rotarians hand-picked the Petite Pearl grapes from a vineyard in Waupoos.  100% of sales go to PEC Hospital Foundation.

Rotary Song Lyrics:
R-O-T-A-R-Y, that spells Rotary.
R-O-T-A-R-Y, is known on land and sea.
From north to south, and east to west,
They profit most who serve the best,
R-O-T-A-R-Y, that spells Rotary.
