What a party! 85 Rotarians and friends of Rotary joined together for a Christmas celebration and to raise more than $6,000. for Bethell Foundation, supporting a family and Shop with a Cop.  Everyone was so generous and really got into the spirit of the auction.  Murray was in great form last night and rallied the crowd to give big!
What a great day for a parade!  We gave away 5,000 toothbrushes/paste along the route.  Thanks to Connor Anderson for being the gingerbread mascot on the float, to Matt Jennison for driving the truck, Greg at Diamond Towing for the truck and Dave at Motorhome Travel for float storage and decorating, and of course, the volunteers who came out to distribute the toothbrushes.
We were pleased to host the district governor on her recent club tour.   L-R Ingrid Sproxton, DG Kathi Dick, Timothy Whitehead, Sherrin Palmateer and Don Ogden

The Hershey Centre
Bolton Rotary was recognized as a community partner in the AED-CPR Program that has trained more than 17,000 students in life-saving skills in 60 schools across Peel Region. 
Our club joined others to donate towards the Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines 3 years ago.  Some of the money went right away to lend a hand for the immediate emergency.
We were successful with $140,000 usd Global Grant to refurbish 5 schools that were still in need of rebuilding and refurbishing.
We loaded 2 large 40 foot sea containers with school desks, chairs, books, sports equipment etc. and dried soup, apples etc. A big thank you to all.
They help implement AED-CPR training in high schools.
Our club funding the program at Humberview, Robert f Hall and St Mikes.
Now every year ALL grade 9 students in Caledon will be learning this life saving skill.
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.

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.
