“Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure” is a story of a young entrepreneur who starts an apple dumpling business guided by the Rotary world-wide moral code which uses four questions to test the voracity of both personal and business relationships. They are…
1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Barrie can take pride in being the national head office of this organization that helps children through periods of grief – whether it be the loss of a loved one, or divorce, or a variety of other life-changing and stressful situations.  Thousands of children are assisted each year by this international organization. 
The Rotary Club of Barrie is pleased to have made a $3,000 donation to assist the Barrie organization in the printing of informational manuals for Rainbows’ volunteers.
