Ninth Annual MEGA Rotary TV Auction

 
Once again the Rotary Clubs of St Catharines, Niagara Falls, Niagara Falls Sunrise, Welland, Fonthill and Fort Erie are joining together with COGECO TV for ONE giant regional event. The auction will take place on Thursday November 30, and Friday and Saturday, December 1 and 2 - the start of the holiday shopping season. 
 
Donations with a value between $50 and $300 are auctioned off and the donated item receives a ten minute segment of airtime. Items over $300 are featured for longer periods, as major specials. Any business or individual wishing to participate can contact any of the Club Executives for more information.
 
Auction proceeds are used locally for projects such as Boys & Girls Club Niagara Falls, Pathstone Mental Health, V Elementary School Technology Program, Niagara Children's Centre, Pelham Cares Home for Good, Women's Wellness Groups in Niagara, Fort Erie Theatre, Salvation Army Red Kettle Drive, Niagara Nutrition Partners, City of Niagara Falls Park, Community Care of St Catharines and Thorold, and Bethlehem Housing Projects, to name a few in each community.
 
Last year the MEGA Rotary TV Auction was among the most watched programs on COGECO TV, reaching about 100,000 homes from Fort Erie to Grimsby. Photos and descriptions are posted to our web site at http://www.rotarytvauction.ca  for more exposure for your business.
 
This year we’re going to an online bidding format that will open the week before the official dates. Watch for instructions in the Tabloid which comes out November 22. Get your bidding number on sign up and you’ll find it’s easy and fun. Cogeco is still broadcasting on the days of the auction.
Mudfest 2017 

Congratulations to all motivated run Participants, dedicated Volunteers, supportive Sponsors and helping Rotarians for their amazing efforts in making Mudfest 2017 the BEST EVER! Those efforts and support culminated in a $5000 donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters last week! 

Big Brothers/ Big Sisters of South Niagara Executive Director Barb Van der Heyden said the funds will help them to continue matching 'Littles" with volunteer "Bigs', who act as role models helping kids in need realize their full potential. 

Now that the mud, rain and cold are a distant memory, we hope that you will be part of Mudfest 2018 again at Bissell's Hideaway.  The date is set for Saturday, May 5 so mark your calendars!
 
Weather forecast is predicting sun, 15 degrees with a STRONG likelihood of MUD!!
On Tuesday evening the Club gathered to formally honour, express our deep appreciation and induct 4 members of the community as our 2017 Paul Harris Fellows. They are  truly leaders in making a difference in the lives of many locally and internationally!
 
The passion, vision and commitment of the honourees was inspirational to all who heard of their unselfish, substantial accomplishments while serving  people across all ages, genders and communities.
 
Pictured here (L to R) are Karen CHCOSKI (teacher EL Crossley Secondary School & leader of the school's Interact Club); Ann Mantini-Celima (Founder and Executive Director Wellspring Cancer Support); Tim Droppert (Teacher/Librarian AK Wigg Public School and Leader of Canada's first Rotary Earlyact Club);
Fonthill Rotarian Jayne Watson (Entrepreneur whose profits support Pelham Cares, past Club Secretary and Club Board Member).
 
Once again we thank the recipients for their Service Above Self!
 
 
 
 
  
The torrential rains this week made Mudfest 2017 fundraiser held at Bissell's Hideaway muddier than ever! Nearly 300 runners braved the courses (Youth and Adult) course enhancements included inflatable obstacles. The Club with the help of the Shriners of Niagara, community volunteers and the Pelham Fire Department pulled out all the stops making this a great success for a GREAT cause, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of South Niagara. We couldn't have succeeded without the incredible support of the Miklavcic family and the staff of Bissell's Hideaway. Recognize our very own AG Frank Adamson and some of  our fantastic District 7090 Youth Exchange students?  
 
While recently vacationing in Panama, Rotarian Mel Groom came across Ralph Day,President Elect of the Boquete, Panama Rotary Club.  The Club has an active fundraiser where they sell great coffee grown, roasted, packed and donated by another Rotarian at her farm. The proceeds from sales of the coffee go to support the educational scholarships sponsored by their Club.! Mel supported their fundraiser and upon her return told us about the great program.She presented a package of really fresh coffee to our Assistant Governor/Past President Frank Adamson upon her return. Many thanks Mel!
