The course was all set at Bissell's Hideaway, there was mud aplenty, the warm weather cooperated, coffee and Timbits had been delivered for the 320 Mudfest registrants!
 
Amazing support was secured from the corporate, community and public sector. Nearly 100 fantastic volunteers stepped forward to help us again making sure Mudfest was safe and FUN!
 
Proceeds will be presented to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of South Niagara and used to support our Club’s Youth programming.
 
Many thanks to everyone for again making Mudfest a HUGE community success! 
On April 23, members of the Rotary Club of Fonthill joined current and former staff, along with students and community members for a special tree planting at E.L. Crossley Secondary School in Fonthill.
Members of the school’s Interact Club and teaching staff spent time honouring the memory of Sharon Keller, a special science teacher who passed away suddenly last fall. A teacher at the school since the beginning of her career in the mid-1980s, Ms. Keller (as she was known to her students) was much more than an amazing educator; she was an environmental leader and tireless promoter of all things science and technology.
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.
 

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.

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
Club of Niagara became an official club this past
Thursday, pins and all. The induction meeting was
held at Rose City Kids in Welland, where club
executives and members received the honorary bell,
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
locally and globally. There are currently over 9,500
Rotaract clubs in 177 countries worldwide, and
Rotaract Niagara is excited to become a part of this
growing number.

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.
