Tonya Pearce | Club President 2021-2022
 
Welcome to the Barrie Kempenfelt Rotary Club's website. Our Club is committed to making a positive impact, generating community goodwill, and sharing friendship and fellowship using Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self.”
 
Our Club meets every Wednesday at 7am for a fun and interactive breakfast meeting.  Our weekly meetings provide an opportunity for our members to get updates about our upcoming events and fundraisers, listen to an educational speaker, and get to know one another on a more personal basis.  At this time we continue to meet virtually but look forward to gathering together in person at our earliest opportunity. 
 
The theme for this Rotary Year is SERVE TO CHANGE LIVES and it urges members to become more involved in service projects.  The theme’s underlying idea is “caring for and serving others is the best way to live because it changes not only other people’s lives, but also our own.”  I can’t imagine a more relevant message during these challenging times as we can all use the opportunity to re-engage and continue to make a difference in our community.  I invite you to come visit our Club and see how you too can make an impact in our community.
 
I am honoured to be the president of a Club built and supported by a group of strong leaders and community minded individuals.
