12 Chances to Win..!
We're bringing back our famous Winter Draw in a new format for 2020-21
 
We will purchase Gift Certificates from local Restaurants to offer as prizes in a Dinner of the Month Draw.
 
This is our way of giving back to some local businesses in this uncertain time and provides the Club with an alternative fundraising opportunity to bridge our funding gap as many of our traditional events have not been possible or have been cutback due to Covid 19.
 
A Win Win for our community. #RotaryResponds

Rotarian Liz Hawthorne has commissioned a decorative ornament of Chantry Island Lighthouse and the proceeds are going to support the Rotary Club of Southampton’s community and international projects.
 
This the third in a series of ornaments. The first was an ornament of a water droplet to signify Rotary’s commitment to clean water and to support a global grant for a clean water project in Cameroon.
 
The second was a star which contained the outline of a mother and child to signify Rotary’s focus on Maternal Health and the funds raised supported a maternal health project in Cameroon.
 
The Light Houses are available for $5.00 each at a Little of This and That, High St Southampton, or by contacting any Southampton Rotarian
On October 24th - World Polio Day the Rotary Club of Southampton dedicated a new Garden area at Perkins Park and presented a $2,000.00 cheque to Rotary's End Polio Now Campaign.
 
The club planted 75 special red and yellow tulip bulbs and some purple crocus to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations and Rotary’s commitment to the children of the world to eradicate polio. This coincides with the recent declaration that the African region is now officially free of wild polio, leaving just two countries to eradicate the disease.
 
This event was among thousands held by Rotary clubs around the world on October 24th.  Rotary members worldwide took action on World Polio Day to raise awareness, funds, and support to end polio, a vaccine-preventable disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today.

Rotarian June Van Bastelaar presented a $1,000.00 cheque to Phil Dodd, Executive Director of Keystone Child, Youth and Family Services in Owen Sound. Earlier in the year, the club had forwarded a $2000 cheque to the agency in support of their residential programs which are not government funded.
 
Keystone is the lead Children's Mental Health Agency for Grey Bruce. Founded in 1974, it has a dedicated team of professionals who respond to the needs of children and youth ages 0-17 and provide counselling. Phil Dodd has shared the hope that in the near future adequate funds can be raised to move their residential program from a separate building which no longer meets the needs of the youth to their main centre.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on 25 August announced that transmission of the wild poliovirus has officially been stopped in all 47 countries of its African region. This is a historic and vital step toward global eradication of polio, which is Rotary’s top priority.
