Rotary Club of Sackville and Area
 
 
 
This Saturday, April 24, Rotary Club of Sackville and Area sponsored the Square Roots Project. Sackville Square Roots aims to tackle a growing issue that affects many people across many communities: food waste and food insecurity. Programs were developed to redirect good food from being thrown away.  Fruits and vegetables are purchased in bulk, bundled in reusable bags, and delivered. 
 
Approximately 90 bags were bundled and delivered with all Covid restrictions being applied.  The weather was most co-operative, which helped make the day of 20 Rotarians and Friends a great day.
 
Some comments:  "It was a great morning!" "Great fun. What Rotary is about!!" "It was a lot of fun!  Teamwork can do so much." "Great day. What amazing teamwork!" "Thanks for organizing this event."  "Great fun" "and great to see everyone!"
 
Looking forward to sponsoring again in June!
 
Speaker - Alana Hirtle - Vocational Service Director, Rotary Club of Truro, spoke at our Tuesday morning meeting on the - Portapique Community Build Up +. 
 
In the days following the April tragedy in Portapique and surrounding areas, the Rotary Club of Truro, Nova Scotia struck a committee, “Rotary Cares” to see how they may be able to assist the community in their healing process. The last few months, working with residents of Portapique, the project entitled “Community Build Up +” was announced.  This project, developed from community consultation, is an upgrade to the existing Community Hall in Portapique, which is over 200 years old and an addition of a new structure, which will house dances, weddings, and other community events such as children’s programs, and yoga.  Also outdoors they are taking the existing plot of land and adding a playground, as well as a multipurpose area for sports, flea markets, etc. The project is called “Community Build Up +” and the intention is for the residents to rebuild their community with our support. Join in efforts to rebuild Portapique! Together, let's help the community rise again!

Rotary has 7 areas of focus: peacebuilding and conflict prevention; disease prevention and treatment; water, sanitation and hygiene; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; community economic development;.and supporting the environment.
 
Today, April 22nd is the 51st Earth Day and the theme is "Restore Our Earth" which focuses on natural processes and emerging green technologies that can restore the world's ecosystems.  More than $18 million in Rotary Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating this distinct area of focus to support the environment gives Rotary members more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase that impact.
 
Celebrating Earth Day serves as a conscious reminder of how fragile our planet is and how important it is to protect it. We celebrate Earth Day to continue promoting environmental awareness and to remind us that we can protect the Earth in our everyday lives as well. Let's be part of the change.
