Fun, Funds, Fellowship

Were you there on Friday April 27th 2018?  If you were you would agree that this years Surf and Turf was the best so far!  With the Rotary Club of Trenton's biggest fundraiser  held at the incredible Canadian Airforce Museum, the atmosphere was spectacular.  Sparkling lights, enhanced the glow of the translucent Rotary blue table clothes that were reflected in the spring like yellow flower center pieces.  The aroma of the prime rib cooking greeted you at the entrance but was out done by the taste of the beef alongside the succulent lobster tails and the many accompaniments.  The silent auction gave opportunities for everyone to contribute to the the giving.  Don't miss next years event.....and enjoy the pictures.   

Rotarian Style Serving 

Where do you find Rotarians doing good in the world?  Well, all around the world of course.  But on one cold afternoon in Quinte West, Trenton Rotarians served those in need and held their lunch meeting at the Salvation Army Community Family Church.   Trenton Rotary Club raises money in the community to give it back to the community where it's needed.   But raising money isn't all Rotarians do.  They give from their pocket books, heart and hands.  This was a special day for Rotarians to be visible and helpful directly in the community in which they work, live and play.  A wonderful meal was made, served and cleaned up after.  Rotarians had the honor of sharing a meal with each other along side community members who appreciate the valuable service provided by the Salvation Army Community and Family Services centre.   

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.
