HEADLINES
 
Emma Bartz and Jordan Nairn attended the Rotary Club of Goderich meeting today to make a presentation to the club, canvassing for support in starting a Rotaract Club in Goderich. Rotaract is a club for individuals ages 18-30, with an interest in community service and professional development. The Rotary Club of Goderich is proud to support the development of a Rotaract Club in our Goderich community.

We will be presenting the mission of Rotaract, the vision for starting a club in Goderich, and to provide examples of the activities and contributions this club can make in Goderich. It will be a Q & A format, so bring all your questions.

Rotarians Mike Henry and Werner Ritgen (club president) delivered  donations to the local  Food Bank/Christmas Hamper Programs from the Rotary Club of Goderich.  We know families feel added pressure at this time of year to provide a special Christmas.  By providing funding we're hoping to lighten the load helping them to enjoy the holiday season.
Our newest exchange student Doubleu Patranit Chanjaraspong is settling right in to life in Canada. Doubleu arrived here in September from Bangkok Thailand  He is taking drum lessons from Stefanie McFarlane and marched with the Celtic Blue Highlanders in the Christmas parade.

The Weather Man was a little confused for the Goderich Santa Claus Parade on Saturday night and brought rain instead of snow but that did not dampen the Christmas cheer in the air. The parade route was lined with happy children and their parents all bundled against the weather.  Rotarians  together with Frosty the Snowman waded into the festivities.
 
Jenn Evans and Anne Marie Thomson of the Goderich Huron YMCA were presented with a cheque for $2959.52 by Rotarian Gary Gravett. Rotary and the YMCA partnered for the Swing for Kids Charity Golf Tournament last August 18, 2017.

Guest speaker at our Tuesday meeting was Mike Dixon of the Bayfield Optimist Club. Mike was introduced by the Optimist Club president Glen Steinson.   Mr Dixon outlined a new tutoring program for local students established by the Optimist Club to meet a need in the community. The hope is to expand the service into other communities in the area.
