Strathroy Rotary Club Splash Pad Opens!
 
Children and parent’s alike were elated to discover that the Strathroy Rotary Club Splash Pad finally opened for the 2020 season on June 17th and it couldn’t have happened at a better time with the hot, steamy, summer weather coming in on us.  
It’s open daily from now until Labour Day from 8:am till 8:pm. 🤞 
 
The Rotary Club of Strathroy Memorial Trail is just steps away from our downtown area.  It meanders through the municipality allowing those taking advantage of it to enjoy nature at it’s best. 
The trail, on the south and north ends of Strathroy, connects with the Conservation Authority's trail system creating a city-wide public trail system.  The trail begins just east of the corner of Albert St. and Carrie St, and extends all the way through town, continuing through the Conservation Area and up to Second Street.

EAST COAST VIRTUAL KITCHEN PARTY

On Saturday May 30th,  amid all the shutdowns and social distancing, the Strathroy Rotary Club, along with several other clubs across the region,  managed to bring the East Coast to Ontario with exceptional Eastern Canadian food and entertainment.   Each club offered a chance for participants to order their meal from a restaurant in their hometown and then treated everyone to a free virtual show of Celtic music, dance and comedy.  Chef Mark and the Clock Tower Bistro treated the Strathroy crowd to a wonderful meal of Corn and Seafood Chowder or Roasted Red Pepper Soup with a main dish of Panko Crusted Halibut on a bed of rice pilaf with grilled zucchini and carrot fingers.  Dinners were priced at  $30 each with $10 of that going to our local Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Middlesex, the charity of choice for this event hosted by Strathroy Rotary Club.

 
“ Palliative Care is end of life care for a patient and their family and friends. It’s a time of mixed emotions, and a time for patient privacy and dignity. This is why we are overwhelmed with emotion at the Foundation about the opening of a dedicated Palliative Care Suite at Strathroy Hospital. We want to recognize our Hospital President & CEO Todd Stepanuik, and the VP of Clinical Services & CNO Rosemary Frketich for having the vision to move this project forward, but mostly we want to thank the Strathroy Rotary Club and the more than 200 donors, without whom this beautiful, private space would never have happened.”
 
Susan McLean, CEO
Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital Foundation
On behalf of The Salvation Army Community & Family Services Food Bank, I want to thank the Rotary Club of Strathroy for your generous donation of $5,000.00 to assist us in responding to our clientele during the COVID-19 Crisis.

Your donation will enhance our ability to give more nutritional value to the hampers we provide by purchasing perishable items, along with donated canned and packaged goods, allow us to give needed food to families and individuals each month.

Again, The Salvation Army is extremely grateful that you are assisting us in ‘Giving Hope Today’ to the marginalized and needy in Strathroy-Caradoc and surrounding area.

Yours in Rotary,

Roland Shea
Major
