MORGAN WIENBERG - PRESENTATION ON HAITI
COME AND JOIN US AT THE NICE BISTRO, 117 BROCK STREET NORTH IN WHITBY ON FEBRUARY 9TH, AT 6:30 PM SHARP FOR DINNER AND PRESENTATION. TICKETS ARE $50 PER PERSON. WE ARE LIMITED TO 40 PEOPLE. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE.
 
Morgan is truly an amazing young lady who has taken on a project in a very challenging environment of Haiti. She is making a difference and is an amazing speaker that any of you who heard her in the fall can confirm. Our club is working with her to assemble a Global Grant to assist in her work in conjunction with other clubs including two in Whitehorse and one in Haiti. So, your support this night will be used for that work and I know anyone attending will be “moved”.  This is an excellent time for guests as well as they will be impressed that we are working/collaborating with this great young lady and her team. 
 
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!

Your Rotary Wheels Team raises over $1,200 for Heart and Stroke!

 
Despite miserable weather conditions on May 31st, Rotary Wheels Members, Team Captain John Patte, Leigh Elliott, Andrew Elliott and Fred Wynistorf, biked 50 km up the Don Valley Parkway and back down. Cold temperatures,steady rain and north easterly winds gusting up to 40 km/h made the ride a great deal more challenging particularly going up the DVP. This was the third year the Rotary Wheels participated in this event. More participants are always welcome. The ride was sold out and, despite the bad weather, none of the 14,000 participants were discouraged to head out and get soaked. 
 

 
 
 
 
 

The Rotary Club of Whitby's 2nd annual Gourmet Food Truck Frenzy will be held in the parking lot of the Iroqouis Park Arena on Mother's day weekend.
