How to join Rotary
 
If being part of Rotary sounds like it fits with your values, desire to grow and give back, it is easy to get started.
 
The first step is to attend 2 or 3 club meetings or events.  This will give you an opportunity to meet us and learn more about our interaction in the community.  We are a dinner club so there will be a cost for the meal.  You can look at the meeting schedule on the home page under "speakers".  Please check as we are sometimes at a different location.

Our club executive approved a $500 contribution to this US$100,500 project to supply blood fridges & medical equipment in the Brong-Ahafo region of Ghana. (Brong-Ahafo is in south Ghana west of Lake Volta; it surrounds the towns of Sunyani and Techiman.) Bev Hilton & the Oceanside Rotary Club will administer the project.
 
How did this project come to be? 
There is a 10-year history behind this project:
The evolution of the Rotary World Community Service Mid-Island Group since 2007 has brought us to the point of being able to jointly plan, develop and implement a major project of this type.  The leveraged funding and sharing of expertise of MIG will allow us to make larger contributions and more significant impacts on our world communities.

Our club paid half ($1,500) of the purchase price.
The large grill has increased capacity for pancake production at the Community Breakfast.
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.”
