The Rotary Four Way Test

Is it the truth?  Is it fair to all concerned?  Will it build goodwill and better friendships?  Will it be beneficial to all concerned

Rotary Reflection

For food in a world where many walk in hunger
For peace in a world where many walk in fear
For friends in a world where many walk alone
And for the opportunity to serve others through Rotary,
May we be truly thankful!

The Loyal Toast 

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Queen of Canada!

Happy/Sad Bucks 

Mayor Bryan Paterson:  Had a wonderful time with his 9 year old son last night down at the Leon’s Centre watching the Raptors.
Greg Mumford:  Now biking with his grandsons; and finally 2 days of summer!
Terri Hodges:    Privileged to participate in Motionball in support of the Special Olympics. Thank you to everyone for your support. I surpassed my own fundraising goal ($575 raised, goal of $500), my gym (Crossfit Queen Street) surpassed our team goal ($12,000 raised, goal of $10,000) and Motionball Kingston surpassed the event goal of $60,000 and raised a total of $72,000 to help send Kingston Special Olympians to the Games.  Awesome job everyone!
Murray Cotton:  5 weeks post heart surgery and happy to be here!  Thank you so much for all your support.

John Richards:  Happy that my bride Ann is here today, and happy that Rick is installing IT system at work.


Marie Miller:  Son travelling the world since January.  Now in Spain but coming home for his sisters grade 8 graduation!


Mara Shaw:  Daughter coming home Saturday!


Jackie Blakney:  Girlfriend has had a successful surgery.  Happy to meet Senior’s Centre members Martin & Trudy Adema

Bill Egnatoff:  Happy to consult with Mayor on garbage collection. First 2 Adventures in History applications are in. Heading to Ecuador for 3 weeks to visit family.


Rick Fiedorec:  Pleasure to have the Mayor here today – so enjoy his energy.  Michelle surprised me with a pre-birthday gift and went to see David Foster in Toronto.  He had some amazing talent performing with him. I’m aging ungraciously!


Ana Sutherland:  Loughborough PS  in the Frontenac News re: the program we funded in our last Grant session.


Bernie Allard:  We can go to our granddaughters graduation in Halifax for 3 days!


Robert:  Happy $5.  One for every generation in Kingston and happy that cousin Jim is here.


Ron Pols:  Dad came for a visit.   He had a drink and watched me work in the garden. Such valuable time we spend with family.


Martin Adema (Senior’s Centre member):  Had a dream that if we all carried reusable cutlery we’d make a huge positive impact on the environment!

President's Announcements

June 19th - Auction Committee, Kingston Dodge, 5 pm, cookies provided

August 1st Camp Merrywood BBQ

In July, Former Exchange Student Dani from Hungary will be back visiting us.  Date to be confirmed.
Dues are increasing from $225 to $250 and are payable now.  Invoices are coming.  Part of this comes from the need to secure services of a book keeper.
2 Board positions still open – Foundation and President Elect.  Past Presidents please consider, and perhaps splitting the job between 2 Past Presidents – one take year 1 and the other take year 2?
Chase the Ace!
No draw this week.
