Our Rotary Club sponsored another Square Roots food program. Up and at it early Saturday morning packaging approximately 100 food bundles (each10 lbs. of fresh fruits and vegetables) and delivering same within our local communities. Great weather, great friends and a great time had by all.
 
It's End Polio Now Tulip Sale again!  We are selling Tulips for Polio, thanks to the tremendous support of Vesey seeds.
 
For $25 (including tax and shipping) you will get 25 Rotary Tulip bulbs to plant for a beautiful spring display in 2022 and beyond. Bulbs will be shipped to me, in September and I will distribute them to people who have ordered them. We are asking if at all possible that they are planted on World Polio Day, Oct. 24.
 
It is anticipated that $13 from each box will go to End Polio Now and with matched funding by the Gates Foundation, each box of bulbs could fully vaccinate approximately 60 children. To learn more about End Polio now click https://www.endpolio.org/ 
Please encourage friends, neighbours, family, etc. to buy them too (but see the note about where they can be delivered). 
 
Here’s how to place an order.
Email and tell us (rotarysackville38@gmail.com) how many boxes you would like, and the address you would like them delivered to (preferably within HRM, but certainly in Nova Scotia)
Send an e-transfer of $25 per box  to rotarysackville38@gmail.com 
 
Please make sure that your order and payment comes in before July 31, 2021.
 
Thank you for supporting the push to end Polio forever.

Rotary Club of Sackville and Area extends our deepest sympathies to the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation on the discovery of the mass grave on the site of a former residential school in Kamloops British Columbia. We encourage our members and supporters to educated themselves on the history of Residential Schools in Canada by visiting the following sites and taking some time of mourning to Honour these 215 children, and all Indigenous children who never made it home.
 
This discovery is quite painful for many who have been touched by this great injustice and the intergenerational trauma that has resulted from it. See the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) document for the 94 Calls-to-Action to understand how you can help support reconciliation and healing.
 
 
Our Club is hosting a special guest speaker, Claudia Covalciuc, at our June 1st morning meeting. She will speak on her amazing life journey of perseverance and determination. Great motivation in such troubling times.
