Rotary Hits High Water Mark With
2023 Waterfalls Tour

Like the spring seasons where the runoff can trickle like barely open tap or rip like a raging torrent, one never really knows what the end results of the Rotary Club of Picton’s annual waterfalls tour will be.

A popular Easter weekend distraction made possible by club organizers and land owners at Jackson’s Falls and Cape Vesey, poor weather can always hamper the event. Early and late Easters can also impact the tour-the “It’s too early” or the “You should have seen it last weekend” type scenarios playing themselves out.

But everything came together in 2023 and the tour was a record breaking success for the local service club. In total, $19,675 was raised this weekend for a number of initiatives supported by the local Rotary club while over 5,000 entires were logged by the club at both locations. 

Update on Buzova Ukraine School Project

On March 28th, the Club was honour to welcome Mykola Stebljanko as guest speaker. Mykola is the Past Governor of Rotary District 2232 (Ukraine) and attended via Zoom from his home in Odessa.

Last September, Mykola led a global Zoom meeting covering current Rotary projects to rebuild Ukraine. Of particular interest to our Club was the plight of the elementary school in the village of Bozova. Located about 26 KM West of Kyiv in the Bucha Region, the village was at one time the frontline of the Russian invasion from the North. The school became a shelter for the villagers and was subjected to direct attacks from tanks and artillery. Though nearly destroyed, Ukrainians have banded together to rebuild the school as a major step to creating an environment for families to return to the area.
