A big shout-out to our everyone who came out and supported our fundraiser on Saturday night.  We sold-out and packed the Dugout Grill with 130 of our friends and fellow Rotarians.

We had a great evening of fellowship, food, and fun. All funds raised from the evening will be re-invested back into our local community, assisting those who need need it most.  A highlight of the evening was our presentation to Fletch and Quinte Sailability - our donation will help bring their fundraising goals into reality.  We also got to wish our PR Director Toni a happy birthday.

Thanks to our volunteers and our sponsors who made the evening such a success!

QSR's Annual Fish & Chips Supper is back! 2019-03-04 05:00:00Z 0

On Saturday, Feb 2, QSR once again hosted our annual ‘Curl for Kids’ bonspeil at the Quinte Curling Club.

A total of 10 teams raised a whopping $5200 which will be directed to local youth initiatives, including Camp Trillium. We were excited to welcome back Charlie Benson from the camp, who stopped by to accept a cheque for $10,000 - the amount our club raised during the recent Operation Red Nose season. In return, President Brigitte was honoured to receive a plaque from Charlie, thanking our club for all of our help over the years.

In addition to the Quinte Curling Club, QSR would like to thank the PR students from Loyalist College for their hard work leading up to - and during - our event. In addition, we’d like to thank our sponsors Maple Dale Cheese Inc and Sprague Foods for their generous (and absolutely delicious) donations to help feed our curlers.

Finally, a big shout-out to our team of QSR volunteers (and family) who helped ensure our event was a success.

QSR's Art & Wine Festival 2018-11-12 05:00:00Z 0
On February 3, QSR hosted our annual bonspiel fundraiser, with a new twist for 2018:  Curl for Kids.  
With nine teams, we spent the morning out on the ice, learning about hog lines, hacks, and how to 'hurry hard'.  In total, over $4400 was raised, all of which will be re-invested into programs and organizations dedicated to helping children and youth in our local area.  After a morning on the ice and a tasty lunch, we welcomed Charlie Benson from Camp Trillium; his visit was two-fold:
  1. President Alison presented him with a cheque for over $7300, representing funds our club raised during Operation Red Nose in 2017, and in turn,
  2. Charlie presented a plaque signifying $100,000 raised and donated by Quinte Sunrise to Camp Trillium.  As a small club, this is a huge achievement and we are extremely proud
We are only able to do what we do with the generous support of our club members and community supporters, including those who participated in our bonspiel:
  • Quinte Curling Club
  • Quinte Health Care, Children's Treatment Centre
  • Quinte First Credit Union
  • C&C Delivery
  • Klemencic Homes
  • Belleville Dragon Boat Club
  • Team Terpstra
  • Team Mathany

QSR held our 12th annual Curl for Camp Trillium bonspiel on Saturday, Feb 4, and it was deemed a massive success by everyone involved!
With 14 teams on the ice through the morning and afternoon, our curlers and generous sponsors raised well over $6600!  These funds will be combined with our efforts through the recent Operation Red Nose campaign, and will be dedicated to a new, 1/2-basketball court at Camp Trillium.
According to Event Coordinator and Past President Nancy Lewis:
"we are grateful to our curlers and sponsors for their fundraising efforts, and for our volunteers who worked hard leading up to - and through - the day.  Our entire club participates on several levels to ensure this bonspiel is a success and we are incredibly proud of our efforts.  This event is a great way for us to help others and share in some fun Rotary fellowship."
Team Mathany, led by Past President Janet, took home the trophy for Highest Fundraising Team, and all curlers went home after a delicious lunch prepared by our own Ann Lawrence.
Thanks to everyone who participated and helped...we look forward to seeing you next year!

On the weekend of September 10, a massive storm hit Prince Edward County leaving a lot of damage in its' wake; unfortunately, Camp Trillium wasn't spared.  With campers still arriving, a massive clean-up and repair was needed to get the camp back up and running.  Damaged roofs, broken windows, fallen trees, and many branches littered the area, so they put out an APB to various service clubs in the area who would be able to help clean up.
As such, several QSR members went out to the camp on September 15 to assist.  With most of the debris gone and the buildings (almost) repaired, it was a matter of clearing branches (and driving Gators!).  It felt great to help out one of our partner organizations...with the added bonus of fellowship in the glorious sunshine!
To see a few photos from the morning, check out our album on Facebook.  Thanks to the club members (Alison, Catherine, Janet, Paul, and Stewart) who participated!

February 26: This morning, QSR heard a fascinating presentation from Luke MacDonald, who Skyped in from Halifax, NS, to talk about Sparks Fly (http://www.runforlife.ca/runsmart/).
This program works in conjunction with local school boards to put small spinning bikes in classrooms, encouraging kids to self-regulate themselves through physical activity. The program has proved incredibly successful, with over 500 bikes in classrooms across the country in less than a year.
Teachers and Administrators are finding the bikes help keep kids calm, which impacts the entire classroom. An added bonus is that kids who use the bikes are more attentive and ready to learn. As the vast majority of our members have school-aged kids, this initiative hit home in a powerful way.
Thanks Luke for taking the time to chat with us today!

One of our members, Paul Poirier, talked to the club about what it takes to build homes in Vista Hermosa, Mexico.  Through the Arthur Fredericks Community Builders (www.afcb.ca) here in Belleville, Paul and his team fundraise to build earthquake-proof homes for deserving families in Casa Maya Hermosa and Chimula.  Taking approximately six to eight weeks to construct a concrete house + patio, they spend several months down south helping these families get ahead.  The current plan is to build an additional eight to ten homes this coming winter, all while providing food and other basic necessities to the street children of San Cristobel de Las Casas.
