Once again Murray & Aldo delivered a Truckload of items for the Shoeboxes, to Samaritan’s Purse, Kitchener.
Last year over 340,000 Shoeboxes were filled and delivered worldwide from Kitchener to the needy children Worldwide.
 

 
On Monday October 31, a handful of Palgrave and Bolton Rotarians had the immense pleasure of surprising Teresa Colasanti (Executive Director) and Ailsa Stanners-Moroz (Program Manager) of the Caledon Parent-Child Centre with the fantastic news that our Clubs joined together to co-fund a full year of programming for the Centre's "Let's Get Together" program.
 
This program is one that our Club has been involved with for a few years and have had the pleasure of meeting some of the families who are in the program when they came to speak. For those who may not be familiar with it, this program is a 2x per month evening program for families with children with special needs. Parenting a child who has special needs is at times a long and arduous journey.  There are times when one feels completely overwhelmed and hopeless.  A place where people understand the joys, successes and the heartaches.  Where parents can share information, resources, opinions and feelings. Where people don’t judge.  Where they know that their children will be cared for and cared about.
 
 

 
17 of our club members met to brainstorm, discuss and share ideas to help shape the future of our club...stay tuned for action items to follow
 

 
Parking at Rotaryfest is co-ordinated by the Navy League and their volunteer team - thanks for all their time and work on that weekend!  Proceeds from that event are shared with them. 
 

 
A very successful day for our club.  The 6th Annual Haunted Hill Run was our very best ever. 
 
Thanks to the members and their spouses and friends that ran or walked or volunteered.
The road marshals, chili, music, prizes, set up crew, parking, slideshow and videos, registration, volunteer desk, take down crew were all AWESOME!
My biggest thank you to everyone for all your help.

What a day! We exceeded all expectations and feedback from the golfers was fantastic - especially our entertainment with Todd and Greg from Golf With Attitude - we'll get some photos up on the golf website....boltonrotarygolf.ca.  Special thanks to sponsors, golfers, volunteers and the committee for making the day such a success.
 

 
Coleraine Park Environmental Restoration Project 
 
Toronto Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), Town of Caledon, James Dick Construction, Rotary Clubs of Bolton & Palgrave & Kinsmen Club of Bolton
 
We completed this Project on schedule Friday May 13 and the TRCA Field Team did an excellent job machine planting all the 34 trees behind and adjacent to the Caledon Animal Shelter on Coleraine Drive.  The staff & volunteers of the Caledon Animal Shelter and the community dog walkers, not to mention their dogs, will greatly appreciate the shade from these trees on hot sunny days because there were only a few trees in these off-leash areas.

Aldo and Hectorine were there to celebrate  Rotary Day at the Vatican
 

 
Bob and Sherrin presented images of their
recent trip to India.  This team of Rotarians visited many school sites and did a polio innoculation day.  With only 7 current new cases,
and continued vigilance we can succeed with polio eradication in 2016.  A truly awesome accomplishment spearheaded by Rotary.
 

 

This is the 2nd phase of the work done at Las Carretas School.....the old one where the boy was trying to drink water from the tap....but no water, also where the dogs and pigs were in the mud on the street.  Now they have 2 more classrooms, Toilets & wash station with clean water (there is a water tank on the roof).
 
Good work done by RC Gualan
 
 

 
North Hill and the baseball diamonds here are a couple of pictures of the Baseball pavilions we helped support along with the Town of Caledon, The Bolton Braves and the Kinsmen.
This the the Kinsmen's 50th anniversary this year so we were very happy to partner with them.
