Rotary Makes A Difference: The Grove Hubs, and Food4Kids Guelph
 
There are many impressive examples of how Rotary makes good things possible
 
Our club is on a mission to make our members and friends more aware of shining examples, near and far, to instil Rotary pride and inspiration for what is possible when Rotarians have a Big Idea, and get Rotary behind it. 
 
Join us to hear about two amazing programs in our very own community that would not have gotten off the ground without Rotary. Hear how they got started, where they are now, and what the future holds:
 
  • The Grove Hubs, providing a one-stop-shop for youth mental health in Wellington County and Guelph - by youth, for youth. Rotarian Cyndy Moffat Forsyth will update us on this. 
  • Food4Kids Guelph, providing weekend food bags for children from severely food-insecure homes - because no child in our community should go hungry. Rotarian Terrie Jarvis will update us on this.

WHAT IS YOUR BIG IDEA? HAVE YOU BROUGHT IT TO ROTARY YET?
