what's our club about?
and why you should make it YOUR club!

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with award winning author and CBC Personality Bob McDonald, host of Quirks & Quarks with his presentation “The Future is Now”. Without motorized boats and gondolas Venice’s waters are again sparkling blue. Deer are roaming cities in Italy, and mountain goats took over a seaside town in Wales. With less boat traffic whales are back in Vancouver’s harbours. Limiting human activities has dramatically affected our environment. Funds raised at this event will "Make Barrie Better" and address world issues through Rotary's international projects. Tuesday September 20th, 2022 Georgian College Theatre. Doors open 7:30 pm. Presentation 8-9pm.
