PDG Peter Peters introduced the students who came from 16 Rotary clubs from Richmond, B.C. to Dryden Ontario.  3 of the students are members of Interact clubs.  The profile of each student was impressive. They are all involved in sports, 4H clubs, music with some playing more than one instrument, some with student council, most involved in the family farm operation, and volunteer work.  The future plans and interests of the students include: an education in agriculture, involvement in the operation and management of the family farm, nutritional science, climate change, engineering and robotics, heavy duty mechanics and other careers.  All look forward to the weekend to learn all they can about the opportunities in agriculture.  Thank you to Peter for presenting this information in an entertaining and welcoming way.  One would expect the students to feel very special after this introduction.

Barry Strohan reported that Dave Edwards is home from hospital and doing very well.  They went walking (slowly) together.  This is good news.  All the best to you, Dave.
Thank you to the sponsors of the A in A program and thank you to the home hosts.  The program would not happen without all of you.
 The 50/50: today the fund collected $136 which brings the total to over $1200 leaving very few marbles.  Chris' number was drawn today but unfortunately he drew blue.  Good luck next week!    AND
Happy birthday to the two students having birthdays this weekend.
Sgt. Pat Dell
        Sgt. Pat Dell conducted her order of business: 
  • Those who registered for the off site event last week and did not attend will be invoiced.
  • Those not wearing name tags were fined.
  • Home hosts were fined on behalf of their students wearing hats during the meeting.
  • The Sgt. looks forward to Allen Hillsden's return and fining him for supporting the Blue Bombers rather than the Riders.
  • Happy bucks came from: Barry who was happy with the two fine students staying at his home; Greg who received compliments from students on the A in A program so far; Chris was happy his company's fishing hooks project is going well at Agribition; Dinesh reminded us that the average age of the club today was about 50% lower thanks to our very young guests.

Philosopher's Corner

 " This year I have learned 3 things: you are not always going to get the closure or the explanation you deserve; sometimes you have to accept something for what it is and move on; everything really does happen for a reason."                                 Higher Perspective
