Every Child Matters – Honouring Indigenous People

As we mourn the more than 1,000 children, as we wear orange, as we add an Every Child Matters banner to our Facebook page many of us are asking, how do I learn more? how do I understand? how do I help make a real difference? Rotarians in our area have started down this path. Our District Governor wrote. “This …will be a journey though some darks places on the way to enlightenment and unity.” 
 
Our District has joined HIP – Honouring Indigenous People, a Canada wide group of Rotarians and non-Rotarians, Indigenous and non-Indigenous who’s mission is to catalyze societal change by inspiring Indigenous & Non-Indigenous relationship building, strengthening community well-being and advancing the next generation of leaders. 
 
You don’t need to be a Rotarian or Indigenous to be a part of this. Click here to check out their website, sign up for their newsletter and to follow them on Facebook

Sorry, ALL SOLD OUT..!
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

1940 - War Time Donation to Southampton UK
 

1940 Southampton, Ontario Club made a donation of 200 GB Pounds (the equivalent of 13,000 GB Pounds or around 22,000 Canadian Dollars in today’s funds) to the Rotary Club of Southampton UK club to help support the city right after it had been heavily bombed during WWII.

 

 
2015  A British record dealer based in Austria discovered an old acetate recording of a soundtrack from the UK club thanking the Ontario club for their donation and he contacted the club via Facebook Messenger.  
 
 “Best wishes, from Andrew Milton, I am a record dealer and recently came across some acetate recordings dating from the 1950's, one of which appears to include a recording of a message to your Rotary Club from the Southampton Rotary Club in the UK. I have sent the recording to the Rotary Club in the UK in the hope that you can communicate with them about it. I'd be grateful if you could let me know if it means anything to you.”  Listen to the Recording
 
2019 The two Southampton Clubs reconnected when an Ontario Rotaran visited the UK Club and made a presentation about  Southampton Ontario to the UK Club.
 
The story of the ongoing connection between the two Southampton Clubs was recently featured in the Peace Edition of the UK and Ireland Rotary Magazine. Susan Macdonald said “I was thrilled to be interviewed about this when Colin and I visited with the UK Club and I made a presentation about our Southampton and the history between the two clubs”. Take a look:

1945 - Saugeen Memorial Hospital
 

The Rotary Club of Southampton was the original donor
 
In 1945, as World War II was drawing to a close Southampton Mayor Ellis Millard had a dream to open a hospital as a memorial to the men who gave their lives in this ultimate sacrifice.
 
The project was first supported by the Club who in September 1945 pledged $15,500 towards the purchase of Hillcrest Lodge as the site of the new hospital. The total cost of the project was around $50,000. The Hospital was opened on October 16th, 1947 and boasted 21 adult beds and 7 infant cubicles according to the first Annual Report.

Winterama

For 2021 Winterama is being re-imagined as we respond to COVID-19 into a virtual event Winterama 2.0..! Watch this space as our plans evolve.
 
"Rotary Winterama is a FUN AND FUNDRAISING PROJECT promoted by the Rotary Clubs of Hepworth–Shallow Lake, Port Elgin, Southampton, & Tara held in February each year for the benefit of local schools and Youth Programs in Grey and Bruce Counties.

Proceeds are split between the participating schools, youth groups, and participating Rotary Clubs. Over $525,000 has been distributed back to local schools and the community in the past 18 years.
 
Prior to COVID 19, students, individual participants, and groups collected cash pledges of support for their involvement in ice-skating, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, curling, and other winter activities. This year, we are planning our event as a "Virtual Winter Fun Event" and will take place throughout February 2021.
 

STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT 2021 ROTARY WINTERAMA AND HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE!!!!”

Building an Accessible Playground 

This joint $350,000 project with the Town of Saugeen Shores was completed in Summer 2010
 
Our club with our friends from the Rotary Club of Port Elgin were the naming donors for the playground project by each contributing $25,000. Club members from Southampton were also key members of the Fundraising Committee that raised the full $350,000 over a 5 year period.
 
At the time, this was the first fully accessible playground of its type in Bruce County and provides integrated play opportunities for young and old of all capabilities. A sensory garden is included in the design and this was named the Bruce Power Sensory Gardens after the company's lead donation to the project.
