Farley Mowat 100 Writing Contest Winners
 
The contest on the theme of “Canada’s North” was open to residents of Port Hope and also to those living in Arviat, Nunavut.  Arviat is a village on the west side of Hudson’s Bay.  Farley travelled there and worked with villagers on a film.  We did not receive any entries from Arviat this year due to Covid-19 protocols and severe weather, but we look forward to future collaborations.

Finding Farley – 2009 - 1 hour 2 minutes – by Leanne Allison

In this feature documentary, husband-and-wife team Karsten Heuer and Leanne Allison (Being Caribou), along with their 2-year-old son and dog, retrace the literary footsteps of Canadian writer Farley Mowat.
They canoe east from Calgary towards the Prairies (the geography of Farley's Born Naked and Owls in the Family) and then traverse the same paths that Mowat took more than 60 years earlier in Never Cry Wolf and People of the Deer. Their epic 5,000 km journey—trekking, sailing, portaging and paddling—ends in the Maritimes, at Mowat's Nova Scotia summer home.

Why Rotary………..what intrigued me to start is the Rotary Four-Way Test.  Simple to the point in a world that is continuing to become more complex and bereft of humanity and a soul :
                                                     Is it the Truth
                                                     Is it Fair
                                                     Will it build good will and better friendships
                                                     Will it be beneficial to all concerned
 
As I begin to comprehend the facets of Rotary, what becomes exciting is its depth of service……….and its sincere commitment to friendship within the club.
 
Rotary’s Symbol is the geared wheel, which to me represents disciplined work to be done .  If we look closer one can see the “key” within its hub.   Being a part of  that key to make that great geared wheel rotate and in turn generate community service and friendship is a good thing.  A very Good Thing.
 
With a disciplined and happy heart to do good service in this ever increasingly secular world is again ……Good.  I would like to be a part of that key to drive that gear to help others in their lives to make theirs and in turn mine better and a more satisfying life and a stronger and healthier community.
The Port Hope Rotary Club completed another first for the club with a very successful Rotary Christmas Market. Thanks to all our customers, Queenies, The Railside, Food Inspired and Jennifer's Jazz It Up.
The Port Hope club had a busy weekend. On Saturday the members made sure that Santa made it safely to the parade for all the community to see. On Sunday Santa made a special stop in downtown to serve breakfast to many people and collect toy and $$ for the Salvation Army.
Many Rotary members and the public joined in the Rotary Foundation Walk to see the Avenue of Hero's Banners
