We are working hard to make our third puzzle in the four puzzle series another success as sales are coming down to the wire .  
The busy Goderich Harbour at sunset.  Proceeds of the project will go to the Huron Womens Shelter,  Second Stage Housing and Counselling Services.
 Sales are contactless through the email contact@goderichrotary.ca, through contact with  individual Rotarians, messages on FaceBook  at Bluewater Cleaners  and Fiinchers or Chris Walker at Huron Residential Hospice.
We thank our community for the strong support of the first two puzzles and look forward to another successful campaign. 
 
HEADLINES
 We had the honor and pleasure of recognizing members who have contributed to The Rotary Foundation.   The presentation of Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is because of gifts such as this that The Rotary Foundation can carry out an array of programs that achieve beneficial changes in our world.  The presentations were made by Past District Governor David Elliott (centre).  Recipients are (L-R) Michael Strickland, Werner Ritgen, Ann McCauley and Rosanne Field. 
 
Goderich Rotarians are at the Goderich BIA Farmers Market on Saturdays with our 3rd puzzle in our Scenic Goderich Series.  Rotarian Alice Sikma is displaying the puzzle. Rotarian Carolyn Brown was at the market September 18.  Alice will be at the market for thanksgiving Oct 9. 
 
Planting of the Jasper Memorial Gazebo, a gazebo commissioned by Rotarian Tom Jasper in memory of his late wife Mary Ellen, has begun at the Rotary Cove. Shown is Rotarian Lynn Ferguson working on the plantings. Project lead is Colleen McGregor.

Speakers at our first in-person meeting of the new year were our current remaining charter member Mac Campbell and a former charter member Jerry MacPhee who is currently a Kiwanis member of the Sarnia Club.   We were pleased to be inducting 5 of our 7 new members from the previous year.  Mac and Jerry shared with the club the history of the formation of the club in 1962 along with many memories of the accomplishments of the club over the early years in serving our community.  So great to be spending time together.
