Welcome to the Kempenfelt Rotary Club

Thank You Barrie Colts!

 

On Sunday January 20th, the Rotary Club of Barrie Kempenfelt, with our partners The Barrie Colts and our generous sponsors, held the 16th Annual Colt For The Day.  It was a fantastic day that raised $6,000 for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Simcoe County and gave a lot of kids (age 6-11) the chance to skate with their hockey heroes!

We are extremely fortunate to have the tremendous support of the entire Barrie Colts organization.  Their unwavering commitment has made a significant impact on the young children who attend and made a difference in our community.

 

 Since its inception, Colt for the Day has allowed more than 1,200 children the opportunity to meet their favorite Barrie Colt player while raising over $100,000 for Big Brother and Big Sisters and other local charities.

Kempenfelt Rotary donated to the Dekpor School Development Organisation which allowed six children to participate in their food programme for the
2018-2019 school year.  Families in Dekpor, Ghana are faced with the impossible decision of having to try to provide enough food for their children or giving them an education. The truth is, without the food programme, the neediest wouldn’t attend school. Some days kids are sent to school with a handful of peanuts, and other days with nothing at all.
When extreme hunger is constantly present, it’s impossible to concentrate on lessons. Dekpor School Development Organisation has been able to put these students on the food programme for the rest of this school year, which means they will receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch every school day. Not only that, but they will also receive any required medical attention and also have their summer school fees covered.
 
You can follow them on Facebook and check out their website.
Every year, the Kempenfelt Rotary Club volunteers to staff a Salvation Army Kettle for a day. This year, we covered Kettle duty on Dec. 8 at the Beer Store on Bayfield Street, just north of the Georgian Mall. Volunteers  spread good cheer, jingled their bells and collected donations from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.   Feele good to support the Salvation Army and help raise funds that go to helping folks in the heart Barrie community during the Holiday Season.
 
New Rotarians in the Rotary Club of Barrie Kempenfelt made a donation, on behalf of the club, to the Youth Holiday Dinner at the Horsepower Grill put on by Simcoe Muskoka Family Connexions.  The dinner provides a holiday meal, gifts, fellowship and festivity for young people in need over the holiday season.  Thanks go to the new Rotarians for choosing this event to support and experiencing the best thing about Rotary -- giving back!
 
The Kempenfelt Rotary Club, the Rotaract Club of Barrie, the Barrie Food Bank and the Barrie Police Club raised $14,000 in donations through the Lunchbox Fundraiser on September 8th.  The Kempenfelt Rotary Club presented a cheque to the Barrie Food Bank at our meeting on November 21st.  Thanks to everyone  who was involved in promoting the drive and collecting the food and donations at the 7 locations throughout Barrie.
 

Lest We Forget

 
The Rotary Club of Barrie-Kempenfelt participated in the  Remembrance Day ceremonies and wreath laying  at the Cenotaph in Barrie on November 11th.   A moment of silence
 was observed at 11 o’clock Sunday morning to honour the courage and sacrifice of those heroes. This year marked the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.  In 1918 on the 11th day of the 11th month at 11 a.m., an agreement was signed between the Allies of WWI and Germany to end hostilities.
