Upcoming Rotary Events:
  • Rotary Club of Campbellford Golf Tournament - at Warkworth Golf Course and it will be the 50th Anniversary  of the event. Unfortunately, as we are still under the restrictions of Covid, we are unable to plan the usual dinner and social gathering following the day in the field. In fact, at this time, we are unable to employ the “Shotgun” start technique and are forced to revert to Tee Times due to the number of persons allowed to gather. (We are so hoping this restriction is lifted before the event so we can cancel Tee Times  and plan on a 10AM Shotgun start on the course).  In the meantime, we can only plan for what is currently allowed under the existing rules with T-offs starting at 9:00am (every 10 minutes to avoid congestion at the registration desk – please arrive 20 minutes prior to your t-off time). We will advise you of your T-off time in advance.  This year, we have reduced the fees this year down to $100 (or $60 for WCG Members) because no dinner is being planned and instead golfers are being provided with a light lunch and of course, one Tall Boy will be provided.    If you would like to play, please consider getting a team of 4 together (or even one or two of you) and register them as per attached form (2nd page). Let’s be sure to get the registrations in asap.  We ask that you email it to mailto:Secretary@CampbellfordRotary.ca and email transfer your payment to the same email link.

Rotary Minute:
From the upcoming August RI Magazine:
Why is it, though, that our senior members no longer inspire young people with their life experiences? Retirement in America has become an excuse for our senior members to become uninvolved, uninspired and unconcerned about the future of our younger leaders. This is not unique to service organizations, but applies to business, churches and governments as well.
At age 63, I realize this is no small issue, but it needs attention. Rotary, if not the country depends on changing this dynamic.
To our young leaders, I say: do not let older members off the hook. Force them to share. Be assertive in asking for their input. You need them. They know that. Long age, they needed their elders too.
