What's Going On?
Thank you Santa for coming to our Christmas lunch and giving out presents to all the children. We know your passion for Polio Plus and were happy to make a donation for $1000 to the Rotary International Polio Plus program in honour of your visit. Thanks for putting smiles on the faces of so many children!
 
The 44 residents of Rotary Housing Inc received a little gift this week from our club to help make their Christmas a little brighter. Rotary Housing Inc was built in the late 80s by our club and is still managed by a Board of Directors comprised of our members. It is affordable housing for persons with disabilities, single parents, and seniors.
 
Our club also supported the TI Murphy Centre and the Single Parent Association this holiday season. Both organizations are doing incredible work in our community.
 
The 2022 Aidan Maloney Young Professional Awards were presented at our December 6th meeting. This year's recipients are Kristina Kearney and Leigh Bursey.

Kristina and Leigh are both committed volunteers and leaders who use their talents and passion to make a significant difference in our community. We are fortunate to add them to our growing list of young professionals who have received this award.

Congratulations Kristina and Leigh!  
 
We are excited to announce that we collected over $20,000 in food, toiletries, gift cards and cash on Saturday during our annual Food Drive with Prince of Wales Collegiate High School in support of the Salvation Army Food Bank. THANK YOU to everyone who donated and thank you to Sobeys and Dominion stores for allowing us to collect at their locations. We have been doing this Food Drive for almost 40 years and the demand on the food banks has never been higher, we are happy to have played a small role in helping The Salvation Army service the over 800 families they are currently helping per month.
 
Aidan Maloney changed countless lives and made a positive difference in the community.

As part of our Adopt-A-Village project the eighth shipping container has recently left St. John’s on its way to Tshelanyemba Hospital in Zimbabwe due to arrive in late October.
 
We collected personal protective equipment, computers, medical, school and community supplies to be distributed in the community of Tshelanyemba. Many thanks to everyone who contributed by donating supplies or by giving financially. The supplies that are sent continue to save lives and makes a huge difference in the community.
 
We are excited to welcome our Youth Exchange Student, Luise to St. John's! Luise arrived this week from Zurich, Switzerland and will be staying with us for the school year in St. John's while she attends Grade 11 at a local High School. We are looking forward to getting to know Luise and helping her learn more about Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as Canada.
 
We are excited that after a break due to Covid our club is back participating in the Rotary International Youth Exchange program. Our outbound student, Essie, is off to Italy for a year of study in District 2101. Have a great experience Essie!
 
Essie is pictured here with Rotarian Jane, Jane is our Youth Exchange coordinator for 2022-2023. 
 
We were honoured to host our Rotary International President, Ms. Jennifer Jones, at one of our clubs biggest projects, Northwest Rotary Housing Inc. over the July 1st weekend. The visit to St. John’s marked the start of her Imagine Rotary Canadian Tour. Northwest Rotary Housing Inc. provides housing to low income seniors, single parents, and people with disabilities.
 
Members from our club welcomed other Rotarians and Rotaract members from across our beautiful district to Rotary Manor to plant a new flower bed in the back and do some weeding and clean up of the perennials in front of the building. The residents of Rotary Manor were delighted with the transformation.
