From Belgium and Back again
The 18 year old spent a year immersed in Canadian culture as part of the Rotary Club of Whitby Sunrise’s youth exchange program. She now speaks English fluently, has formed lifelong friendships, and learned life lessons she never expected when she stepped off the plane last August.
“It’s the best experience you could have in life to learn about yourself and learn about other people,” she said, reflecting on the past year during her last few days in Canada.
Grandview Kids One Step Closer to New Headquarters
We Paint Too!
Concerned residents rallied to save the Rowe House when Judith Barker and the late Town of Whitby councillor Shirley Scott created the Whitby Heritage Community Association. Working with the developer they managed to acquire a piece of land from the Town of Whitby to move the historic home. The developer poured a new foundation and moved the house to its current location at 301 Front St. W.
As a tribute the Ms. Scott, at the suggestion of Councillors Derrick Gleed and Elizabeth Roy, (both great members of the club) the Rotary Club of Whitby Sunrise agreed to prepare, scrape and paint the house as a community service project on May 6.
