Volunteering at GlobalMedic - A group of Rotarians packed and boxed bags of Barley at the Globalmedic facilities in Oakville.   It was a great morning to have fellowship while helping those in need.  Globalmedic provides disaster relief and life-saving humanitarian aid to countries around the world.
 
Mini Classifications - The current president Nancy Sumaruk and the Chair of Youth Services, Joe Huston did mini classification speeches.  It was a wonderful opportunity to learn a bit more about both these amazing Rotarians.
 
 
Vocational Studies - The Rotary club was pleased to welcome Sunil Sharma to our club.  Sunil is the district 7080 Vocational Services Chair and provided a great overview of Vocational Services. 
 
Bonnie Place Christmas Box - The Rotary club is pleased to be working with the property manager at Bonnie Place to provide Christmas Gifts to residents.  The Rotary Club selected 40 families and bought gifts which will be provided prior to Christmas.  Below is a picture of some of the wrapped gifts ready to go. 
 
Sgambati Golf Fundraiser - It was so nice to have our annual Sgambati golf tournament back after 2 years dealing with COVID.  Doug Ridpath and his committee did a fantastic job.  We had 104 golfers and an almost perfect day of weather.   Final numbers are still being calculated but thanks to our many sponsors we should make $40,000 which will go right back into the community.
 
Wellington Square Thanksgiving Goodies - The community service committee were busy packing bags of goodies for families in need during the Thanksgiving holiday.  The bags were delivered to Wellington Square as part of a four club initiative. 
 
Wheelchair Project Global Grant - Visitors from Uganda spent two months in Canada learning how to make the wheelchair that Peter French designed. It was a tremendous success and now Akram and William are back home in Uganda assembling the wheelchairs themselves. This is all thanks to the vision of Peter French and the global grant supplied by Rotary International. Pictures are available in the photo album.
 
 
Connections Among Generations - The Rotary Club of Burlington was pleased to present a cheque of $1000 to Heather Thompson who is the director of Age-Friendly Initiatives, Community Development Halton.  Heather and her organization have been working tirelessly to help foster a culture of caring and kindness towards our senior citizens.
