This is our 5th annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. We collected over $3500 worth of non perishable food for local food food banks just in time for Thanksgiving.
Hurricane Fiona Help - Message from Michael Parker - Disaster Relief Chair:
With the destruction unleashed by Hurricane Fiona last week, a number of our Clubs have shown interest in assisting with relief. Michael Parker of the Rotary Club of Cobourg is our Disaster Relief Chair this year, a newly created position in our District. His contact information is on our District website. He has already been in touch with Harvey Bass, the District Governor for the Clubs on the East Coast, and is awaiting his response. Once that is received, he will send out a letter detailing what options for assistance can be pursued. Our Clubs may be able to make an immediate cash donation or follow up with joint projects using District funds or by applying to the Rotary Foundation. There are knowledgeable people within our District who are able to assist with that process. If your Club would like to assist, please let Michael know so he can gauge what our District response will be.

Rotary Minute:
Remember Truth and Reconciliation and 94 Calls to Action. It is a road map home. We have an opportunity to be part of the solution.
Child welfare
1. We call upon the federal, provincial, territorial, and Aboriginal governments to commit to reducing the number of Aboriginal children in care by:
i. Monitoring and assessing neglect investigations.
ii. Providing adequate resources to enable Aboriginal communities and child-welfare organizations to keep Aboriginal families together where it is safe to do so, and to keep children in culturally appropriate environments, regardless of where they reside.
iii. Ensuring that social workers and others who conduct child-welfare investigations are properly educated and trained about the history and impacts of residential schools.
iv. Ensuring that social workers and others who conduct child-welfare investigations are properly educated and trained about the potential for Aboriginal communities and families to provide more appropriate solutions to family healing.
v. Requiring that all child-welfare decision makers consider the impact of the residential school experience on children and their caregivers.
2. We call upon the federal government, in collaboration with the provinces and territories, to prepare and publish annual reports on the number of Aboriginal children (First Nations, Inuit, and Métis) who are in care, compared with non-Aboriginal children, as well as the reasons for apprehension, the total spending on preventive and care services by child-welfare agencies, and the effectiveness of various interventions.
3. We call upon all levels of government to fully implement Jordan’s Principle.
4. We call upon the federal government to enact Aboriginal child-welfare legislation that establishes national standards for Aboriginal child apprehension and custody cases and includes principles that:
i. Affirm the right of Aboriginal governments to establish and maintain their own child-welfare agencies.
ii. Require all child-welfare agencies and courts to take the residential school legacy into account in their decision making.
iii. Establish, as an important priority, a requirement that placements of Aboriginal children into temporary and permanent care be culturally appropriate.
5. We call upon the federal, provincial, territorial, and Aboriginal governments to develop culturally appropriate parenting programs for Aboriginal families.

The Salvation Army
This will be my 4th year as Christmas Kettle Coordinator with The Salvation Army, Cobourg Church.  I have absolutely loved my experience and have been touched by the stories I have heard from different people whose lives have been affected by The Salvation Army.
R Joyce introduced Danny Broome:

Major Dan Broome,  was born in Toronto,   spent his teen years in Belleville.   He has worked with the Salvation Army as an Officer (Ordained
clergy) for 32 years,  in the following communities - Paris Ont, Brampton, Milton,  Maplehurst Correctional centre (Chaplain), Oakville, St. George's
Bermuda, Moose Jaw Sask,  and now in Cobourg.  He lives with his wife of 32 years, Wendy and their 6-year-old dog, Charlie.  He is a member of the
Cobourg Rotary club   In his spare time he lives walk or run and read.

Yuri provided a little more background for himself. He said his family came to Canada when he was 6. They didn't have a lot, but he helped a Jamaican Fish seller by cleaning, gutting and filet fish. But he has never fished. When he took his family south and they bought fresh fish from the market, he could bring them home and prepare which his wife didn't know he could do.
Yuri thanked Rotary and club for help and support last year with the kettle campaign.
Yuri has recently joined the Curtis Rotary Club.
For the 2022 Campaign, they are hoping to have kettles at No Frills and Sobey's again, starting November 24th and running Thursday to Saturday from noon to 6pm.
They have found it makes a big difference to have a person standing with Kettle compared to no one at a kettle. It is a difference of several hundred dollars per shift.
It has taken longer then hoped or expected for the Cobourg church to get established in Brighton.  They are looking to have a location in 2023 established to provide support to residents. Then they hope to move into Campbellford. They do not want to duplicate services, but add to them.
They are committed to keeping funds raised in Brighton in Brighton.
They are launching a new program in 2023 to walk side by side with family until the family can stand on their own.
R Daniel thanked Yuri and Danny.
