President's Message

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Rotary Club of Barrie website.

 

The Rotary Club of Barrie would like the residents of Barrie to know that during these very difficult times of Covid 19, we are still hard at work supporting our community.  While it is not business as usual for us, we continue to meet to discuss ways to provide support and assistance where it is needed.  While we have had to cancel or postpone some of our fundraising events, we are proud to say that we have been able to meet all of our charitable commitments this year and that we continue to review requests for assistance as they come in. Some of our recent contributions include the Barrie Food Bank, Youth Haven and Royal Victoria Regional Health Center.  Like many other businesses and organizations, we are looking at different ways to accomplish our goals.  For example, instead of meeting each week in person, we are hosting video meetings.  Our Committee meetings are being held via zoom.  Our Fun Run is going to be virtual this year and the details of how the event will take place will be revealed shortly, so stay tuned to our web site to see how you can get involved.  So while it may not be business as usual, we want you to know that we are still here for you and for our community.  This virus has impacted all aspects of our lives, but it has also brought us together.  Every day we hear of acts of kindness by our community for our community and these acts of kindness keep us inspired and hopeful.  Together there is nothing that we can't achieve.  The Rotary Club of Barrie wishes you all good health and encourages you to continue to follow the recommended guidelines from Canada's Chief Public Health Officer.  Our situation will improve over time, but in the meantime, stay healthy, stay safe.

 

Sincerely,

Craig Graham
