We are doing a food drive for our two meetings in November, and Trivia Night November 9 we are asking  to donate cans of hearty soups, chilli, or stew to Food4kids. The items should be “kid friendly” (i.e. no spicy or Thai varieties).  This is part of the backpack program
Rotary Club of St. Catharines, Rotary Club of St. Catharines South and the Rotary Club of St. Catharines Lakeshore raised two flags at City Hall today to bring awareness to World Wide Polio Day.
Newer member Silvia Dimitrova and her fiancé Aninda Sarker entertained us before, during and following our regular meeting. They received a round of applause. Randi Dyck thanked this talented duo by presenting them certificates for polio immunization shots in their name.
Site visit to Food4Kids Niagara. Third from the right is the Executive Director, Amber Hughes. Amber was delighted to host a tour of her facility explaining how families are chosen to received food donations and how food is discretely delivered. Rotarians were on hand to deliver a $5,000 cheque to assist with this worthy program.
It was our great pleasure to have James Symons, founder of Toolbox Project Niagara, as our guest speaker.
James recognized a need in his community and took action. He serves underprivileged men with a personal gift bag at Christmas.
He is asking us to help him provide for these men with sling bags filled with items such as body wash, shaving apparel, socks, gloves, toque, snacks, puzzle books etc. Most of these men in need live in shelters on restricted incomes.
Linda Landry thanked James with a donation to Polio Plus of 10 vaccinations.

School to Home Reading Program
The Rotary Club of St. Catharines Lakeshore “School to Home Reading Program”
 
The old story book ending  “  and they all lived happily after”… began with a child learning to read!
 
PURPOSE:  “The School to Home Reading Program” was initiated in 2011 in memory of Gary Landry, a founding members, to help increase literacy levels; build confidence; encourage family involvement and instill the joy of reading at an early age.
 
PROGRAM:  Our Club maintains this Program by funding the purchase of “leveled” reading books; recruit, train & schedules volunteers from Niagara College & Brock University…. a win-win as mature students mentor young ones, as well as receiving community hours and references.  Community members are always welcome! Students from grades 2 to 5 read to the volunteer who encourages & critiques, then takes a book home to read to their family and the process repeats weekly from October to April.  Each step is designed to elevate the Students’ reading level and confidence.  In June, we honour a girl & boy in each School with either the E.P.Flegg or the Vic Kovacevich Most Improved Reader Award, presenting a Rotary medallion, their name engraved on a Rotary School plaque & a $50.00 gift certificate courtesy of Book Outlet.
