Welcome to the Kempenfelt Rotary Club
Welcome to the Kempenfelt Rotary homepage! 
If you are reading this, it’s either because you’re bored or you’ve run out of stuff to read online (highly unlikely) or, one of our Rotarians has spoken to you about our service club and you are looking us up.  Hopefully the latter is the reason for this read.   
So here is the usual stuff.  There are 4 Rotary groups in our area but Kempenfelt is known for how much fun we have!  The Kempenfelt Rotary is a group of about 65 people who, yes, know how to have fun, but are dedicated to enhancing our community and making a difference in other people’s lives.  We do this through our six major fundraisers, Taste the World, a food and wine experience is our largest fundraiser and Kids’ Fishing Day is a total give back to the community event.   Every year, over 40 organizations receive funding through our events from large to small organizations including RVH, Georgian College, Hospice, Season’s Centre, Gilda’s, just to name a few.   Our basic principles are based on truth and working for what is fair and beneficial to create good relationships.
If you want to know more about this awesome service club please explore our website and calendar or, contact the Rotarian you met or email me directly.  I would be glad to buy you a coffee and tell you all about what we do and who we are. 
Cheers
Monique Vaillancourt
President 2017-2018
In this picture Michael Smiley from Kempenfelt Rotary is presenting a $1,000 donation to Jamie Hall for the Simcoe Community Services.
Jamie Hall was our guest speaker giving more information about Simcoe Community Services. Founded in1953 and supports people with intellectual disabilities. The alternative at this time was institutionalization. It is all about inclusion in society. They provide services for children and adults with intellectual disabilities and their families.  They have over 550 employees in the Barrie and Orillia area.

Here we grow again with three new members. Last week, Past President George Dangerfield presided over the induction of three new members: Ryan Stitt (sponsored by Gerry Pilon), James Palmer (sponsored by Nick L'Ecuyer) and Tiffany Williams-Palmer (sponsored by Andrew Zyp).
 
Our recent donation of $1,650 to the Dekpor School Development Organization (Ghana) will feed 10 children a healthy breakfast and lunch for a whole school year.
