Who We Are in Brief
The Rotary Club of Nanaimo North has been in existence since October 15, 1972 and since that time the club has been actively involved in service to the Nanaimo community.
Over the past ten Rotary years,  The Rotary Club of Nanaimo North has donated more than $413,000 in our community and beyond.
During that same period, individual club members have also made personal donations to the Rotary Foundation totaling more than $80,000.
The Club is a strong supporter of youth both locally and internationally providing funding for various annual scholarships, and sponsoring and mentoring local Interact and Rotaract youth service clubs as well as supporting projects like Project Amigo in Mexico, the Etta Projects in Bolivia and several projects in Zimbabwe, Kenya & Ghana.
In addition to financial contributions the club members also donate their time and skills to various community events and projects. The most recent examples of this are bartending at the annual Dragon Boat Festival, delivering a monthly community breakfast program, working with Nanaimo Youth Services on the restoration of Rowe House for their youth housing project and various service projects at John Barsby Secondary and Brechin Elementary schools.

Doug Pearson announced at our June 21st meeting  that the final report detailing completion of the project at St. Hubert’s basic school has been accepted by the District 5020 Foundation Committee.  Foundation Chair, Bill McCarthy wrote: “congratulations! You have made education safer through the provision of the basics; water, electricity, etc. for students at St. Hubert’s. Your partnerships and “boots on the ground” mad this possible. Further, the Mid Island Group enabled this project to be adequately funded.”
Our club partnered with Nanaimo Daybreak Rotary Club to develop a grant proposal for the project. The district community grant in the amount of US$3,255 was matched by contributions from the Mid Island Group, area clubs and the Techiman Rotary Club.  The grant funded construction of a well and installation of electricity for the St. Hubert's basic school in Akrofrom, a community about 70 km NE of Sunyani.
 The school was chosen because the community is expanding very quickly increasing the school population of about 1000.   However, the school lacked basic facilities like water and electricity. We therefore decided to use this grant to provide these basic facilities, to help improve their way of life thereby improving education and literacy.
The contact at the Techiman Club was Prince Tandoh. Prince visited us with the delegation of Ghanaian Rotarians in 2014 as President of the newly chartered club.

 Instead of a meeting, members volunteered at Loaves & Fishes on April 26.  Thanks to President elect Rob for making the arrangements.

  One of the tokens made for the program. 
   Our member Liz Kawahara partnered with Cheryl Prince, owner of a biodynamic farm in Lantzville to create the program.   Liz & Cheryl got the idea from one started in Vancouver. After paying to have the tokens manufactured, they donated the lot to Gabriel's Cafe in Nanaimo.  The public can purchase  tokens at Gabriel's for $5.50 each to gift for a nutritious bowl of soup.  Full details are available at the project website, Nanaimo Community.
Congratulations, Liz.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
