For countless years now many have enjoyed the world famous breakfasts that our club has organized on long weekends. Lion’s Head Beach is the place to be Sunday morning at 9:00 on any holiday weekend. JUNE 30th will be no exception but you will see one change. We have renamed our morning feast as the ROTARY BIG BREAKFAST.
‘Why?’ you might ask. Well, for two reasons. One, our breakfasts are always really BIGGGG, and secondly, some had the impression we only had pancakes. Well that certainly isn’t the case.
We have our:
-World famous Hellyer’s eggs scrambled to perfection and sometimes under the eyes of a trained physician to make sure we get them right
-Legendary sausages that melt in your mouth.
-Homefries better than Grandma used to make (please don’t tell her)
-fruit cups to keep everyone healthy and smiling
-Roasted coffee made by Captain Gerry himself
-Juice to top off your morning and,
-PANCAKES made by that famous chef Jean Blanc (that’s John White) to most of us.
And to top it all of, weather permitting, we give you a MILLION DOLLAR VIEW!
Please come and join us.
HAPPENINGS AT THE CLUB
Graduation is just around the corner and the Rotary Scholarship Committee is hard at work with the process. Many hours go into this and our committee chair, Rob Hiscott has that all down to a science now. BPDS is so cooperative and we express our thanks to Jodi Naves and all the staff for their support and their hard work with graduation. We have five major awards to present:
The Highest Academic Achievement Award of $1,000.
The Service Above Self Award of $1,000.00 to a student who is graduating and has been involved in community and school activities that exemplify Rotary’s motto of ‘Service Above Self’.
The Keith Hopkinson Memorial Scholarship of $1,000.00 given to a student graduating and pursuing a post-secondary studies in a medical or health-related field.
The Mary Cameron Award of $500.00 given to a student who has improved the most over the preceding academic year.
And now we have added the J.C. Buckley Memorial Trust Scholarship which will be presented to one or more students entering the trades. This will be given to a student or students of Bruce Peninsula District School who is a resident of the Northern Bruce Peninsula. The Municipality transferred this account to our scholarship fund and we are now in the process of looking at the procedure to turn this into reality.
We hope to be able to present the Buckley Scholarship this year to a student or students graduating or someone in the community who is worthy.
We shall be posting the names of all the winners in our report in July.
If you are a student interested in being considered for the Service above Self Award or the Keith Hopkinson Memorial Scholarship or even the new J.C. Buckley Scholarship, please let your guidance counsellor Ms Naves know.
TRI-CLUB FISH DINNER FOR THE MRI
We are pleased to support the Lioness Club and the Barrow Bay and District Fish Club with a spectacular FISH DINNER on Saturday, September 7th at the Lion’s Head Arena.
Everyone remembers how great the Fish Dinners were at Barrow Bay, and this project will give you the opportunity to enjoy it once again. Rotary is doing the bar. The Fish Club is providing the fish. The Lioness Club are preparing the dinner… and we all know how great their dinners are.
Tickets will be available soon. Watch for the advertisements. It will be in support of the MRI in Owen Sound which will help us all.
