Rotary is back at Craigowan Golf Club this week, Wednesday, July 26th at 6:30 pm for a Club Assembly.
Program will include a review of the upcoming Toy Show & Auction as well as group meetings by our main Committees to discuss and plan for the coming Rotary year. Committee Chairs will then be asked to brief the overall membership on what their committee plans to do in the coming months.
As usual, guests are invited to come and learn what Rotary is doing and bring their thoughts or new ideas to help us make a difference in the community.
For the meal count, members are assumed to be coming and will be charged for their meal. If unable to attend, please advise POD Chair John Narcisian at narcisian@yahoo.ca by Sunday evening, so he can advise the venue accordingly. Guests please email John your intentions to help facilitate food arrangements.

Join us at the home of Tavistock Rotarian Ken Sommers, 11 Jack Poole Drive, Woodstock ON for this joint meeting of our two clubs.

The speaker will be a student Tavistock sponsored for the Ottawa Rotary Adventure in Citizenship.  It will be an interesting program to share her experiences and the effect Rotary is having as Friend of Youth.

Meeting starts at 6.00 pm. Everybody is welcome.

This weeks meeting will be hosted by Rotarian Tom Hemworth. We will meet at 6.00 pm at 211 Victoria Street South in Woodstock. The evening will start with a car rally. John Narcisian will hand out a sheet with questions. The rally will bring us back at the house where we will have supper.
 
Thank you Tom for hosting and we look forward to see you all tomorrow ! Please RSVP to tom@springbankcheese.ca
 
Last week Dave Sutherland, owner of the Lignition Corparation from Brantford, was our interesting speaker. He explained how farmers can be a vital key in the proper management of Carbon Dioxide (CO2).  
 
They can do this with a positive affect on the environment by using an effective new ag-carbon product as a fertilizer that boosts crop yields.  Higher yields are good for the farmer and it is also great that they can capture more CO2 in the process.
 
Dave did a great job of explaining exactly how and why it works, guaranteed!  He and his company are well recognized in the agricultural industry through this new technology, including several featured news articles.

It was a great event as we celebrated our Rotary achievements for the past year and shared appreciation with many of the community organizations and individuals who have supported us in serving the needs of our community.

During the program, several (see list below) were acknowledged and presented with Appreciation Certificates.  Rotary could not accomplish what we do for the community without their ongoing support.   It is always a highlight of the year to see what has been accomplished.

In addition to celebrating the past year, we turned over the reigns to our new leadership team (as of July 1st).  Incoming President Grace did a wonderful job of outlining her vision for the club during the coming year.  The evening concluded with a great song "Go Make a Difference" in keeping with our new Rotary motto "Rotary . . Making a Difference."

Thanks again to those recognized: Giant Tiger, Heart-FM, Hendrik Mulder, Woodstock Museum, Springbank Cheese, Pharmasave (Wdstk & Ingsl), Leon's, Scott's noFrills, Tirecraft, Jacob's Auctioneers, Kelsey's, Royal Bank, Total Rentals, Bobcat of Brantford, Woodstock Boy Scouts, Dwight Blok, Rod & Karyn Liddle.
