Rotary green... 

The Trenton Greenbelt Conservation Area is getting a whole lot greener.

On Saturday members of the Lower Trent Conservation and the Rotary Club of Trenton were joined by volunteers through the Highway of Heroes Living Tribute for the ‘Greening the Greenbelt’ Shoreline Habitat Project to plant 370 trees as well as 240 wildflowers along the shoreline of the Trent River.

The funds for the project were provided to Lower Trent Conservation in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Trenton from a provincial grant under the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund.

The amount received for the shoreline habitat enhancement was $17,053.

 

Trenton Rotary takes a lead..

The Trenton Rotary Club takes the lead over Scotiabank during the Bankers Bed Races fundraiser for the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation on Saturday Sept. 30. - Erin Stewart/Metroland

Teams sprinted their beds down Ryan Crescent during the final event in the month-long fundraising campaign by local banks, which raised a grand total of $10,008 for the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation (TMHF).

Wendy Warner, executive director of the TMHF, said it was amazing to see the community come together to support health care at TMH.

“All of the banks, they’ve all gotten on board so the entire community, (with) gifts big or small, have been able to get involved and participate and help us buy beds for our hospital, which people think the government should fund, but the community funds it,” she said.

The bed races, part of Leon’s buy a bed campaign, is an effort to raise the $100,000 needed to purchase eight hospital beds and three stretchers for TMH.

 

18 Holes For Community Giving 

What a day it was!  Friday September 8th 2017 brought together a vibrant group of community supporters disguised as golfers. This Rotary Club of Trenton's annual event proved to be fun and entertaining.  Many thanks to all sponsors for your support and to the golfers who enjoyed the great weather and festivities.  The tournament raised money which will support this community in which we live and work.  A special thanks to the 50/50 winner who donated back his $500 in winnings to two Trenton service clubs. We look forward to seeing you at next years event.
Rotary Club of Trenton was so proud of our Rotarians, Dr. Gord Bunt, Noelle Bunt, Kris Himberg-Larsen , PP Tim Weaver and PP Chris King. Kris was tasked with carrying 47 kg equipment on his shoulder up 4 flights of stairs. On top of the stairs, Gord was pulling up 45 kg equipment; then Kris had to run all the way back on the stairs touching every single step. Tim was beating something in place and then running like crazy around circuit to pass the torch to Noel, who had to pull 100lbs of water hose across the field. And then Chris King has to run backwards with 175 lb mannequin to hit to finish line. The weather was very hot and humid, but our team has done it.
 
On Monday, July 10th, 2017 the Rotary Club of Trenton officially welcomed members of the new 2017-18 Executive/ Board of Directors to their rolls. Club President Jinni Demine took over the reigns from now Past President Chris King. Demine vowed to lead the club to the best of her ability, and shared great enthusiasm for the year to come.

Frankford Youth Centre Gives!

Frank Meiboom see's value in in giving our youth a place to feel wanted, valued and cared for.  As a member of the Rotary Club of Trenton (and incoming president for the Rotary year 2018/2019) Frank is obviously dedicated to helping his community.  Frank is not only an active member of Trenton Rotary, but he's served on the board of directors of the Frankford Youth centre for five years.  His passion for ensuring the young people in the community have a solid foundation to strengthen their resilience and life learning skills was evident as he provided members of our club with an opportunity to see and learn about the achievements and successes of this community organization.    
 
 
 

From Sea and Land to the Community

It was a specular evening!  Fun, fellowship and WOW - Fundraising.  Yes, the Rotary Club or Trenton did it again.  The community came together to enjoy an evening of fantastic food prepared specially by Dewmill Events.  Sweet, hot lobster tails, perfectly cooked prime rib, salads and more.  Eating all you could came only second to giving back to the community through the many opportunities to share.  50/50 draw, roses full of $50 bills, and a silent auction with something for everyone.  The live auction created a fun and frolicking atmosphere and I'm sure who ever won the day with the firefighters is surely pleased! The tables were dressed in Rotary fashion all decorated in yellow and blue.  It was a casual night that formally gives our community something more.  All money raised through this annual event goes through the Rotary Club of Trenton and directly to local community needs.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
