Gordon Dowsley and Kim Tan of the Oshawa Rotary Club join Ross Mackie, Shawn Mackie and Greg Heasman of Mackie Transportation in loading books destined for the remote aboriginal reserves in Northern Ontario.   A special nod to Mackies for generously transporting the books to the distribution hub in Thunder Bay from which they will go by plane, or road, to replenish and even start libraries. The Rotary Club of Oshawa is pleased to partner with a number of organizations to gather ship and distribute these books.
At our meeting of Monday, March 21st, we enjoyed the honour of recognizing Arthur Lovell as a three time Paul Harris Fellow for his generosity to Rotary.

Two new members joined our club this month. Welcome to Rotary Rick Edmond and Tito Marimpietri!

Aurore introduced our speaker, Heather McMillan from Durham Workforce Authority on Monday. She was a little bit English and a little bit French!



The Oshawa Rotary Club is currently partnering with the Prince Arthur Rotary Club of Thunder Bay on a book project for northern Ontario.  The first four boxes of books were turned over to Krysta Logozzo of the Port Arthur Club on November 24 by Gordon Dowsley of the Oshawa Club who had taken them on a recent trip north.  The proposed arrangement is for Rotarians and friends from the Oshawa area to transport the books to Thunder Bay and the Port Arthur club will distribute them in the north.
Currently the Thunder Bay Rotarians are working on a strategy and selecting the target communities.  The possibilities include isolated aboriginal villages only reachable by plane, communities along the highways and inner city schools with special needs.
Books are gathered from a variety of sources in Durham.  When this trial program so completed, it is estimated that at least 1000 books a year could head to deserving recipients in the north.

Thanks to Rotarian Louise Parkes and her husband Darryl Sherman for arranging this great promotion of our Exchange Program.

We are so proud of our InBound student, Aurore Marchand.
