Thanks to those who gave up their Saturday golf game, gardening or just about any other activity on a beautiful morning to tramp up /down the ditches at the Robie Street / Hwy 102 interchange picking up assorted waste which has been launched from the windows and backs of trucks over the last year.
 
Included in the pick-up party were; Ken McLean, Rod Jones, Ed MacDonald, Brian Matthews, Chester MacPhee, Ken MacDonald, Tom Savoury and Mike Topley.
 
Some 34 bags of garbage and a small kitchen stove were collected! All adjourned for a well earned coffee when the work was done.
 
See you next year, same time, same place.

As part of RI President Riseley's tree challenge, each club around the world was tasked with planting one tree per member this year. The Rotary Club of Truro was pleased to have partnered with the local Scouts Canada troop to plant trees at the old Truro dump site.

On Saturday, May 5th, Rotarians, family and friends including Audrie-Jo & Mike McConkey, Barbara Goit, Wayne Gillis, Youwei Chen, Alana Hirtle, Jane Gourley-Davis, Garth and Trinkie Coffin, Lydia Sorflaten and Mark Mason accompanied by students Katie, Marianne and Minseo all met up with the scouts and paired off  to plant approximately 1000 spruce seedlings donated by the the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources.   They will grow into a great forest some day on this reclaimed site.

A big thank you to Audrie-Jo for arranging this activity! 

 
Our travelling Rotarian, Kevin Quinlan, met up with the Ulaanbaatar Peace Avenue Rotary Club in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, which was celebrating its 5th anniversary. 
 
Kevin reports that the Club is the 1st and only club formed totally by former Rotaract members. They stick to the 18-30 year rule so after the age of 30 they can join a club. A group of Rotaractors got together and formed this club.  There are 14 Rotary Clubs, 15 Rotaract Clubs and 3 Interact clubs in the city of  Ulaanbaatar.
 
On the club's vacational tour April 26th several members of the Rotary Club of Truro were given a tour and explanation of the Auto Recycling and Parts business by owner and Rotarian Andrew MacDonald   It was fascinating.  He explained how the cars came to the facility and how ultimately almost every part was turned into something that could be used again.  Great visit.
 
Rotarians staffed a table at the Truro Farmer's Market on Saturday, April 21st. giving out Community Yearbooks and talking about Rotary.  It was a great way to end a highly successful Rotary Week.  Shown in the photo are part of the crew, Judy Nicholson, Jim Goit, Jim Gould and Ryan Beazley.
 
Rotarians took part in tours of Rotary House as part of Rotary Week activities.  The staff and clients of the Colchester Community Workshops were proud to show of their facilities and the work that they do. 
 
The Rotary Club of Truro is proud of its long and ongoing relationship with the Workshops as they make a difference in our community.
