  • Water is life. Safe water protects and saves lives. For my family, water is something we consciously protect and conserve, as we live on a property with well water. Recently we even installed a generator to make sure we have access to water if the power goes out. Think about that. It is so easy to take our access to water for granted when so many have little or no access to clean, drinkable water. If you look through the Rotary Showcase, you will see a plethora of projects around hygiene, sanitation, and creating greater accessibility to clean water. These projects have taken place in just about every corner of the globe. #Life Below Water # Search again and you will also find Environmental projects that range from increasing awareness of plastic in our daily lives to beach clean ups to responsible sourcing of marine life. If your club has considered getting involved in a water project, such as reducing marine pollution, sustainable fishing, or conserving costal and marine areas I strongly recommend you join us for a few days surrounded by the powerful ocean and hear from those who have blazed a path. All over the world initiatives are taken to make our planet more sustainable. Healthy oceans and seas are essential to our existence. Oceans cover 70 percent of our planet, and we rely on them for food, energy and water (regardless of if you have a well on your property or not). # Immerse yourself in the Ocean # Cruise to Bermuda, September 1-6, 2022 Celebrating Life Below Water - first Zone event for 2022-23 This event is open to everyone – Rotarians and non-Rotarians – interested in having fun and learning more about Life Below Water.

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.

The Buildings Blocks

The term “Environment” is very broad and open to interpretation. It is often viewed through different lenses, e.g.:

Physical elements: land, water, atmosphere and ecosystems

Environmental issues: energy consumption, green house gas emissions, pollution, habitat loss, packaging, plastics, waste, climate change, land degradation, toxics, water quality, etc.

Sources of environmental pressures: transportation, agriculture, urban systems, manufacturing processes, residential/commercial infrastructure, and individual/aggregate use of resources.

Regardless of how we frame the “environment”, protecting and restoring our natural environment requires individual and collaborative actions among all actors within society. At the core of this effort are the local actions within communities. This is where Rotarians, as people of action, will become the agents for bringing about the needed change.
