We are so happy to welcome Lud, our international exchange student from Lima Peru who will be spending this coming year at GDHS in Georgetown.
Members of the Rotary Club of Georgetown gathered to thank outgoing president Ryan McLaughlin for his service and leadership over the past 12 months.  We are happy to welcome our new president, Rick Kritschgau, who will take over the helm July 1, 2019.  The evening also provided the opportunity to reflect on our achievements as a club this year, and to set our sights on new opportunities for fundraising and providing service to the community of Georgetown as well as to those in need  who live elsewhere in the world.
The Rotary Club of Georgetown supported the Jurassic Park Halton Hills event on Friday June 7, giving out free pizza to hundreds of fans who showed up to cheer on our Raptors.  While the Raptors soundly trumped the Golden State Warriors by a score of 105 to 92, our club distributed 1440 slices of pizza.  It was a great family event which contributed to a strong sense of community spirit.
Donations of food and dollars was provided to the Halton Hills Bread Basket.
A special thank you to Georgetown Toyota for providing the space free of charge for the evening.
And kudos to Emma Mann for organizing this event.
The Rotary Club was pleased to contribute to the 2019 Georgetown Hospital Foundation Gala.  The club sponsored a live auction item, a private shopping spree for two at Studio 49 in Georgetown.  The bidding on the item closed at $2,250.
In total, the gala raised over $140,000.  Proceeds from the event will be used to purchase vital surgical and lifesaving equipment, such as 2 new defibrillators and resuscitation carts for the Emergency Department.
Rotary is proud to support Georgetown Hospital.
The Rotary Club of Georgetown cares about youth in our community.  We became aware of a significant funding gap for the Intensive Youth Worker who supports young people presenting with mental health issues at the two Town-operated Youth Drop-In Centers in Georgetown and Acton.   Our club reached out to other service clubs in the area, and formed a collaborative service club group that collectively donated $18,500 to the Town, to avoid interruption or reduction of this vital service, while longer-term regional funding is sought.  Click on this link to read the article as published in the Georgetown Independent.
The Rotary Club planted 20 new trees in Joseph Gibbons Park, On Delrex Boulevard, on Saturday April 27, 2019, in celebration of Earth Week.  The new saplings accompany the 19 trees the club planted one year ago in response to a challenge to all clubs around the world from Rotary International to plant a tree per Rotary member - 1.2 million trees in total.  This year’s planting was only a local club event, but represents a continuation of a new worthwhile tradition here in Georgetown.
The Rotary Club of Georgetown is thankful to the Town of Halton Hills, Department of Recreation and Parks, and Planning and Sustainability, for their support in planning this initiative.

On Thursday November 08, 2018 the Rotary Club of Georgetown celebrated the 64th Annual “Norm Bigg” Senior Citizens Dinner at the Living Hope Alliance Church.  This year, 250 senior citizens were treated to a delicious meal and entertained by the Georgetown Seniors Centre Band.  This is the Rotary Club’s way to acknowledge and give thanks to those who have contributed to the vibrant and caring community that Georgetown is today. This project is the longest, continuous-running dinner in Rotary International’s 35,727 clubs worldwide.

On February 17, 2005 the Rotary Club of Georgetown reached the milestone of providing service work to the town of Georgetown for 50 years.  On June 30, 2005 the Rotary Club of Georgetown was presented with the prestigious Rotary International Significant Achievement Award for outstanding service in the community for holding the annual Senior Citizens Dinner for 50 consecutive years!

On September 15, the Rotary Club of Georgetown, in partnership with other service clubs, hosted the fourth annual Head for the Hills Craft Beer Festival in Georgetown.  There were 42 breweries present, 15 gourmet food trucks, and live entertainment all day.  Mother Nature cooperated, providing a hot humid day, perfect for tasting a few beers.
About 5,300 people attended the event, which was supported by over 165 volunteers.  Proceeds went to Food4Kids, The Georgetown Hospital Foundation, Cancer Assist Services of Halton Hills, and Field of Dreams and to fund other local projects of the four host service clubs.
