Since 1951 when Charlie joined Rotary (President in 1957/58) a tree planting program he started has invested nearly $120,000 and planted over 7000 trees have been planted by Rotarians. Our club continues the legacy with the Charlie Wilson Environmental Award which honours those in the community who make an outstanding contribution to the environment. This year the Charlie Wilson Environmental Award was presented to President Bob Schickedanz of the Simcoe County Homebuilders Association who have donated a substantial amount (over $70,000) from their ice fishing event, through the Rotary Environmental committee, to many worthy environmental projects like planting oak saplings around the military park and building and renovating of structures at Fort Willow and NVCA property.

It's a green party at Hooligan's for our
St. Patrick's Day lunch!
Our Feb.08 lunch was a very special event at the Barrie Country Club to recognize and thank all the sponsors who make so much of what we do for our community possible. Our special guest and speaker was Kelly Wolfenden who recounted our club helping her at a time when she was battling cancer, dealing with chemo and surgery while trying to care for her son who was stricken with 200 seizures a day. She offered her tearful thanks and passed on that everyone's doing much better!
