Thank you our new Gold Sponsors! The Welland Honda/Carstar team, led by Clint Bowman, Lori Zanth and Chris Merritt, are excited to partner with the Rotary Club of Fonthill at the Niagara Mudfest Challenge on May 5th this year. Numerous staff have said they are ready and raring to go at the annual Niagara Mudfest to be held at Bissell’s Hideaway in Fonthill. Mudfest is the most important Rotary event of the year helping to raise funds and awareness for Big Brother Big Sisters of South Niagara. Formerly known as the Pelham Mudfest, the Niagara Mudfest Challenge is less than three weeks away. Keen Mudfesters ages six and over are asked to go to our website at niagaramudfest.com and sign up on Eventbrite today. Don’t miss out.
 
Saturday May 5 is predicted to be a warm and sunny spring day making for a perfect opportunity for you and your kids to run, roll, crawl and jump, over, under and through some challenging obstacles with plenty of mud, all in the name of charity (and fun!!). And if its a bit damp that day it will only make for a more exciting kids course for 6 to 12 year olds and a 6 km adult course meandering through the rolling hills and valleys of Pelham for those 13 to those 90+. (Yes. Fred Farnham plans to be there too!)
 
After all the participants get 'down and dirty’ they are treated to a great bbq lunch with a drink. They will receive a commemorative tee shirt and a souvenir dog tag, all included in the price. Mudfest is family fun for all ages. It's exciting, interesting, different, not too difficult with proceeds supporting a great cause - Big Brothers Big Sisters. 
 
We encourage you to visit our new sponsors Welland Honda and Carstar Welland along with our other premier partners - Pen Financial, Boggio Pharmacies, RBC Dominion Securities and Bissell’s Hideaway. Thanks you and these fine companies we can help important charities in your community. For more information, visit the website (niagaramudfest.com), or go straight to the registration page
 

Niagara Peninsula Homes, a non-profit social enterprise based in Welland, recently received eight laptops computers thanks to a District Matching Grant from the Rotary Club of Fonthill.
Both the Women Trade Centre and the Youth Centre will benefit from their usage, as office administration and related skills and programs will now be more accessible to those in these programs.
In particular, women returning to the workplace are taught how to complete their resume, do an online application for employment, as well as prepare for interviews. Rotarians Mel Groom and Barbara Bartholomew recently assisted new graduates with online applications, while mock interviews were held as well.

To learn more about Niagara Peninsula Homes and their work, visit http://www.nphcr.ca/

Women enrolled in the office administration program at Niagara Peninsula Homes take part in a seminar on creating online applications.

The Rotaract Club of Niagara was pleased and honoured to be a part of 2018’s Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY), which took place February 24 in communities around Niagara. 

CNOY is a nationwide event that raises awareness and funds for individuals and families experiencing hunger, homelessness, and hurt all across Canada. The walk began at 5:15 pm in 121 locations throughout the nation, and consisted of more than 19,000 participants.

Rotary in Fenwick
It was a crisp -7 degrees January 24 th morning in downtown Fenwick when members of the
ROTARY CLUB OF FONTHILL gathered at the village’s most loved flag standard to sing a
lusty rendition of the Canadian National Anthem.
For the past two years during the months of January & February
the club has enjoyed the hospitality of the GRILL ON CANBORO
for their weekly meetings.
A wonderful way to start the day!
 

Time is often a challenge with businesses such as PenFinancial. We recognize that and Rotary Club of Fonthill has responded, since this type of membership has been specifically tailored for busy individuals who find it difficult to commit to regular weekly attendance. Busy corporate members benefit greatly from accessing a Corporate Membership, enabling the team to share attendance, thus maintaining a regular presence at functions, breakfast meetings and volunteer events. 

If you like the idea of participating in a local vibrant charitable organization but don’t think you have enough hours in a day, this is an opportunity for you and your team to share the challenge. We invite you to join us for one of our 7:15 am breakfast meetings,
every Wednesday at Lookout Golf Course.

Rotaract Niagara Induction - January 18th, 2018
We are excited to announce that the Rotaract

gavel, and banner. Rotaract exists under the umbrella
of the Rotary club, and consists of young professionals
and students that wish to make a difference both

growing number.
 
President Paul Snack and Past President Frank Adamson received a special thank you from the George Biggars of the Shriners club of Niagara Falls for inviting them to provide lunch at last years Mudfest.

BURR, Douglas Paul. It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the passing of Doug on Thursday October 5th, 2017 at the age of 72. His love and passion for life began when he met Susan; his wife of 48 years. They enriched their lives with the blessing of Julianne (Tim) Sviergula and Stephanie (Bill) McWilliams. His unconditional love flourished with the birth of his grandchildren Madeleine, Jason, Aaron, Lauren, Ryan, and Ashley. Doug was a very proud owner of Tim Hortons Fonthill. He was an avid golfer, supporter of Pelham Minor Hockey and instrumental in the development of the new Community Centre. He was a proud Rotarian serving as Past President and Charter Member. He was given the distinguished honor of receiving the Paul Harris award. In keeping with Doug’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Family invites friends to St. Alexander Roman Catholic Church, Fonthill on Saturday October 14th where a Funeral Mass will take place at 11 am. Celebration to follow at Pleasantview Funeral Home, 2000 Merrittville Highway (905 -892-1699), Reception Centre at 12 noon. In lieu of all flowers, donations to Wellspring Niagara or Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research would be appreciated.
