Rotary in our Community
This year's Carl Oake Rotary Swimathon became the Splash Challenge to meet the restrictions imposed by the pandemic.  However, despite the novel new format we were successful in raising almost as much in donations as last year for Easter Seals Ontario.  At our first in-person meeting at the Holiday Inn in over 18 months we presented a cheque for $10,000 to Easter Seals.  Pictured from L to R are Ken Seim, Chair of the Swim committee, Vanessa Oake Hogan, President Wayne Harding, and Coralie Jacobs of Easter Seals Ontario.   
The Rotary Club of Peterborough was pleased to donate a $100,000.00 donation to build a net zero Health Centre at Camp Kawartha as part of our Centennial celebrations. The Rotary Health Centre will be straw bale constructed with net zero utility costs, zero toxins, zero fossil fuel use, zero waste output, and a zero-carbon footprint. The features of this unique building will provide educational opportunities for students, campers, and visitors to learn about carbon-neutral design, carbon sequestration, alternative energy generation, natural building materials, product life cycles, and green-waste management systems. L to R in the photo are Myke Healy, the Camp Kawartha Board Chair, Cathy Romano, Healthcare Manager, our President Wayne Harding, and Jacob Rodenburg, the Executive Director of Camp Kawartha..

Rotarian Rick Storey came up with a novel and fun way of raising funds for the Carl Oake Rotary Splash Challenge.  President Wayne Harding and his son Jackson Harding were joined by former Easter Seals ambassador Mitchell McColl and his brother Eli McColl in paddling canoes in front of the Lift Lock while being sprayed by a Peterborough firefighter on Monday, June 14.  You can view all of the hilarity and get information about donating to the challenge by viewing the event on Youtube.

After two years of work the Rotary Centennial Book is here and ready for sale.  It is the culmination of months of work by our former President Bruce Gravel and his wife Frances (pictured).  The book covers the history of the Rotary Club of Peterborough from its origins on April 01, 1921 until the present day and also includes much of the history of the BEL Rotary Club and the Kawartha Club.  You can purchase a copy of the book for $50. at Grady's Foot Essentials, Brant Office Supply, or by emailing our Treasurer at


Our Centennial Year got tremendous public recognition with the raising of the Rotary flag at Peterborough City Hall and the Proclamation that April 1 is Rotary Day and March 29 to April 4 is Rotary Week.  Pictured at the flag raising are (L-R) President Dan Grady of the Peterborough Kawartha Club, Mayor Diane Therrien, President Wayne Harding of the Peterborough Rotary Club, and Nicole Van Stone of the BEL Club.
