The Rotary Club of St. John’s Northwest wishes to thank our very loyal Trip of the Month Club members for your steadfast and generous support of our fundraising efforts.  Some of you have been members of our travel club for years and years.  We are most appreciative of your support.

 

We have all found ourselves in uncharted territory since late February, and the current unprecedented world travel challenges are not ideal for introducing our new season of trip options for your consideration.  However, these unique times have also resulted in greater community needs for assistance.  Our Rotary Club must fund raise in order to help.

 

We hope to introduce our next Trip of the Month season of trips as soon as possible.  We will notify you as soon as we can obtain approvals to proceed.  We are trying to come up with some innovative and lower-risk travel choices for your consideration.

 

We will be in touch when we know more. In the meantime, thank you again for your loyal support, and ….. stay SAFE!

 
 
The 2019 Aidan Maloney Young Professionals Award was presented at our November 26th meeting. This year's recipients are Jessica Fisher and Melissa Royle. 
 
Jessica Fisher is Corporate Communications Advisor for Fortis Inc. Jessica coaches the Fieldians Academy U-21 ladies soccer team, a team she has been committed to for 7 years.   She is a Director on the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Newfoundland’s Board of Directors and an active volunteer with both the Health Care Foundation and the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation.  She also regularly leads charitable initiatives both at work and in the community.
 
Melissa Royle is a lawyer with Benson Buffett PLC. Melissa presents regularly on a volunteer basis to many community organizations and to the public on various legal topics. As a host and producer of “Out of the Fog” on Rogers TV, Melissa profiles matters of local importance and promotes community initiatives. She volunteers as Chair of the NL Chapter of Equal Voice, an organization that promotes the election of more women, and as an Aide-de-Camp to the Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador. A passionate advocate for civic engagement, Melissa often volunteers to host, moderate, or present at events for community organizations and to promote political involvement. 
 
Congratulations to Jessica and Melissa!
Part of the proceeds from our Give Together Event held in April 2019 are going to Stella's Circle for their Clean Start Program. Clean Start is a commercial cleaning business that operates as a Social Enterprise. They help people with barriers to employment get back into the workforce. This $15,000 will be used to purchase commercial washer and dryers to expand their services; enabling them to wash the towels and sheets to clean Airbnbs.
A big Thank You to all our Sponsors and guests who attended our Annual Give Together Event as well as those that donated auction items. You made this donation possible.

Small scholarships help Illinois adults build their careers

Small scholarships help adults return to school and trade a job for a career - In a seemingly affluent Chicago suburb, poverty stops many adult students from affording classes to advance their skillsets. Local Rotary clubs are helping pay for school.
