New Gazebo Project 2017

Sydney Sunrise Rotary & N.S.C.C. Gazebo Project for New Dawn Guest Home - Community Working together!!

 
Members of the Sydney Sunrise Rotary Club of Sydney enjoy the completed gazebo at New Dawn Guest Home, which was built by students in Jim Swayne's carpentry students at Marconi Campus.

For several years, the Sydney Sunrise Rotary Club has supported the New Dawn Guest Home for persons with physical and intellectual disabilities. As the Rotary’s Community Service Committee project-of-choice, the Rotarians continually seek out opportunities to bring joy to the lives of residents.

“The New Dawn Home is located on an the radar base. The building is great, but there’s really nothing outside for the residents,” says Linda Crockett, Sydney Sunrise Rotary Club, project coordinator. “We wanted to give them a place to sit and enjoy the weather and spend some time in the sunshine. NSCC was my first call.”

Jim says the call from Crockett was timely.

“When Linda contacted us to see if we could provide assistance with the build, it couldn’t have come at a better time,” says Jim. “At that point, my students were working on roofing and exterior finish.” As community-based projects must align with the curriculum, the gazebo offered students both a learning and difference-making opportunity.

The final result

 

Local company Gillis Building Supplies also joined in and delivered the finished gazebo to New Dawn Home, saving the Rotary Club on delivery costs. The sturdy, wooden structure was installed at New Dawn Home in early November, and has been a welcome addition.”

“We are very thankful for all who participated in making this project possible,” says Linda MacDougall, administrator, guest home and home living, New Dawn Home. “For our residents—some who are visually impaired—functions outside during warmer weather meant gathering under our front entrance, which is not large enough to accommodate everyone. The gazebo will not only help with that, it will encourage residents to become more independent and spend more time outdoors.”

Linda Crockett says that the project worked out better than she could have planned, and credits the students at NSCC. “The thing that pleased me the most through this whole thing was that the students were as thrilled to work on this project as we were to have them. It worked out beautifully.”

Rotary Donation for Sydney Flood Relief

Rotary Donation to Help with Sydney Flood Relief Total of $52,150.00

 
 
 
 
Donations from local area Rotary clubs along with personal donations from Rotarians resulted in a significant monetary contribution towards the relief of the victims of the Thanksgiving Day flood. At the recent Floodsgiving Benefit Concert at Centre 200, a cheque in the amount of $52,150 was presented to the United Way of Cape Breton flood relief fund. Rotary's commitment to community service was a dominant factor in responding to this local disaster.

Rotary Clubs Provide More Dollars for Hospice Palliative Care through Ribfest 2016

Community and Rotary Clubs Provide More Dollars for Hospice Palliative Care through Ribfest 2016

Sydney, N.S…..As Open Hearth Park returns to soccer play and open green spaces, the Rotary Clubs of CBRM have packed up all the trappings of Ribfest 2016 and are pleased to announce a second significant donation to the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton.  

Thanks to the exceptional efforts by the Rotary Clubs of CBRM’s Sydney Ribfest 2016, the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton will be the recipient of $70,000 donated by generous Cape Bretoners who “Gave a Little at the Gate” combined with the generous support of the four CBRM Rotary Clubs.  Gate proceeds amounted to almost $47,000 and the balance of $23,000 has been contributed by the Rotary Clubs, in addition to planning, staging and running Ribfest. This amount exceeds the total of $55,000 raised in 2015 and once all financial obligations are met for this year, it is the intention of the Clubs to contribute additional monies to the Hospice Residence Project, if available.  

Planning for Ribfest 2016 began 10 months ago and encompassed thousands of volunteer hours to bring the event to reality during those months and throughout the weekend of July 15th, 16th and 17th. “The move to our new location in Open Hearth Park meant many changes from last year.  We had to establish a new site design and expand plans to fill all the space we had our disposal so that those attending would have lots of opportunities to enjoy themselves in addition to savoring the great food prepared by the Ribbers,” notes Sydney Ribfest 2016 Co-Chair Sara Salter-Burke. “ Such a move brings along additional expenses and new lessons to learn. Overall, it seems to have been an extremely positive experience for everyone.”

“We know that the Hospice Palliative Care Society is very grateful to both the community and CBRM Rotary Club members for this significant contribution to the establishment of the new Hospice Residence," adds Co-Chair, Kevin Armstrong.  “Ribfest has become a successful signature local event for everyone, regardless of age, and Rotary is proud to be the driving force behind a three day event that captures the attention and participation of the community at large. We are especially indebted to our many sponsors who share our desire to create new and successful initiatives in the local area and like so many others, look forward to seeing the Society’s Hospice Residence plans come to fruition.”

This year Sydney Ribfest 2016 positioned itself with the theme of “more” – more food, more entertainment, more children’s activities, more parking and now can add “more money raised” for Hospice Palliative Care patients and families.

Sydney Sunrise Rotary Continues Support Of Loaves & Fishes

Sydney Sunrise Rotary on going support of Sydney's largest food bank "Loaves and Fishes".  Our club purchases food supplies and serves the meal six times each year!
 

Hunger has been an issue since time immemorial. In 1981 a group of concerned citizens gathered in Sydney to discuss the problem. The result was the establishment of the Loaves and Fishes Community Kitchen. The non-profit restaurant was intended to be a temporary measure, but unfortunately the demand was so great that it is still in existence today.

Indeed, Marco Amati, Manager of the Inner City Churches Loaves and Fishes Society, recently acknowledged an increase this year in the number of people coming into the kitchen for a meal.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
