Correspondence: Pres Joyce received message from the International Inner Wheel.
Horizons of Friendship have asked if they can submit a request to us. They have been told yes, submit their request for support.
I am emailing you on behalf of Cross-Canada Cyclist and Keynote Speaker, Curtis Carmichael. Curtis' father-in-law has been an involved Rotarian at the Cobourg, ON club for many years and originally got Curtis connected. R Steve provided Curtis contact information at the Rotary District 7070 Conference in Fall 2019, to follow up with you directly once his book, with Michael "Pinball" Clemons, has been published. Good news! His book is published and Curtis would love to set up a brief phone call with you to discuss how your Rotary Club can get involved and  give back locally.
Smile: blush
Something about: Verdana Pro and Times New Roman enter a bar. We don't serve your kind here.

  • Hello Rotary Supporter…. After being forced to cancel last year, the Rotary Club of Campbellford Golf Committee is very determined to once again; hit the links for a day of fun and fellowship. So, we are now planning our annual Golf tournament this year on Thursday September 2 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 and email transfer your payment to the same email link.

  • District 7070 leadership team,   We have launched a new opportunity for Youth in our District, and with our neighbours in District 7010, and Indigenous communities within the Williams Treaty area. Please share this information in the newsletter as soon as possible, on social media for the District - and if possible, with all presidents and secretaries to share amongst their membership. There is a letter for clubs below, and 2 flyers to share the word as well. Please feel free to contact myself or Bill Empey at the Rotary Club of Toronto with any questions or concerns.   REGARDING: Williams Treaty Youth-to-Youth (Y2Y) Engagement Circle October 8, 9 & 10 To Whom it may concern, am writing to request your support for a Youth-to-Youth (Y2Y) learning experience involving Indigenous and Non- Indigenous youth in grades 9 to 11 . This Y2Y engagement opportunity has been developed by HIP (Honouring Indigenous Peoples) and co-created by a strong list of stakeholders including Indigenous Elders, Teachers, Education Counselors, Knowledge Keepers, Rotarians and other ethical leaders. Building on the success of HIP’s earlier programs, Y2Y engagement circles focus on peace and reconciliation while inspiring youth to work together and take action towards becoming good stewards of the land.   What is HIP's Youth to Youth (Y2Y)  Engagement: Y2Y engagement circles are an innovative way to promote understanding between Non-Indigenous and Indigenous youth. We believe it's a good way to fulfill HIP's mission by having young people in grades 9-11, Canada's future leaders, collaborate and learn from each other. Subject to all restrictions to control COVID19, this Y2Y engagement will bring together a balanced group of rural and urban non-indigenous and indigenous students over the weekend of October 8 to 10 at Camp Kawartha for relationship building activities focused on land-based education. This will provide an opportunity for these youth to build friendships with like-minded youth, learn Indigenous heritage, culture and treaty relationships, and develop hands-on understanding of nature and what it means to be a good steward of the land. Nominations: Selected participants include 25 Indigenous and 25 Non-Indigenous youth currently attending grades 9 to 11. We hope to receive a diverse representation of Non-Indigenous applicants, including settlers from various countries and Non-Turtle Island Indigenous youth. Additionally, we are inclusive and welcome those who identify as Genderqueer, Non-binary and Two-spirit.   We are asking Indigenous Communities and Rotary Clubs, within the Williams Treaty Territory, District 7010 and District 7070, to nominate youth who have demonstrated leadership potential within their communities. Please see attached documents for details. Events have limited capacity and Nominees are encouraged to submit their applications as early as possible by completing the online form which can be found  by visiting:  Sponsorship: This Y2Y engagement circle will cost over $1000 per youth. We are hoping to provide this opportunity for free to selected youth and ask Rotary Clubs, Indigenous Communities and other organizations to help cover expenses by making a $750 donation per youth sponsored. Donations can be made by visiting . If sponsoring a specific nominated youth, be sure to put their name in the message field. Otherwise, we will match your sponsorship up with a youth. HIP plans to host more Y2Y engagement circles across Canada in 2022. Should we receive more funds than needed, it will be held and leveraged for these future Y2Y opportunities. If COVID19 conditions prevent us from hosting an in-person event in October, we will host a virtual event on the scheduled dates and plan an in-person when it is safe to do so.

Rotary Minute:
Water and Sanitarion Rotarian Action Group - Without water and sanitation, life and livelihood are under threat.
- 8000 people die every day from water borne diseases
- Women and children (usually girls) spend hours each day fetching water, often under threat of violence
- Lack of sanitation and privacy lead to early drop out from school among girls
- Every year, 40 billion hours spent collecting and hauling water in Africa alone
- Disputes over water jeopardize peace in every continent
- Drought and starvation threaten lives and livelihood of millions of people
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) is the official resource to Rotary clubs for these types of projects.
Signs of a Stroke - FAST
R Clay introduced his son, Dr. Andrew Samis.
Dr. Samis is an MD and PhD, a practicing surgeon, leader of the critical care unit (ICU) at Belleville General Hospital, coroner at Kingston, Adjunct Assistant Professor at Queens University and former officer in the Canadian military.
Dr. Andrew Samis joined us via Zoom.
He educated us about Strokes, how family and friends can help as part of the team to save and improve lives. Everyone has a role.
There are two types of strokes. About 80% are caused by a blood clot that blocks a vein in the brain. About 20% are bleeders. The lack of oxygen to any part of the brain for too long and the cells deprived of oxygen start to die.
Therefore it is urgent to remedy the situation as soon as possible.
F - Face, is it drooping?
A - Arms, can you raise both?
S - Speech, is it slurred or jumbled?
T - Time, call 911 asap.
Belleville General Hospital is one of 31 Stroke centres in the Province. Not all hospitals are equipped and set up to handle a stroke. Not Trenton, or Picton.
DO NOT drive to the hospital. CALL 911.
DO NOT wait to see if it will pass.
The Paramedics can prepare the patient and the hospital on route so that the patient is met at the correct door of the hospital for urgent assessment and care. Staff at the hospital will be ready and waiting for the patient, rather than at normal emergency room and triage where this symptoms will just start to be recognized and then may have to send you to another hospital,  like Belleville. You have likely lost an hour when time is of the essence.
At a Stroke centre like Belleville, they will immediately scan the brain to determine if it is a clot or bleeder, location etc.  This is done in about 5 minutes and high tech program diagnoses the problem.
If it is a clot, they can start to treat with special clot busting drugs or surgery to remove the clot. They have access to specialist neurosurgeons.
Dr. Samis says it is like a NASCAR pit stop.
There has been big gains in recent years to deal with strokes. But it starts with calling 911. Don't wait.
Recovery can take up to 2 years, but most happens in the initial three to twelve weeks after treatment.
R Chris thanked Dr. Samis and commented on the great care received at Belleville General Hospital.
