We are so pleased to welcome Richelle Greathouse to our Club. Richelle is the International Student Advisor at the University of Prince Edward Island and she has been instrumental in helping launch our Rotaract Club at UPEI.

Fun fact: Richelle is an avid gardener and can frequently be seen carrying bags of vegetables from her garden at the Farm Centre.

At our meeting on Feb. 26th, our Club voted in favour in principle to do the Ribfest fundraiser.
 
Ribfest PEI is being proposed as a three-day community based, family-oriented event that will be organized by the Rotary Club of Charlottetown. The event will be held July 27-29, 2018 at the Confederation Landing Park. The event will include three Ribbers who are internationally renowned for competing for top awards, a fries and lemonade vendor, a group of local businesses that will participate in an on-site Vendor's Village, a children's play zone, a beverage tent, a beer tent and an entertainment stage which will feature entertainment for all ages.
 
Ribfest PEI revenue will allow Rotary to operate and continue its Community and International Projects in support of Youth, Seniors, Health, Education and Peace.
 
Please note that at this point much work on this has been done including a Logo, Sponsorship Package, and website. We will begin calling potential Sponsors over the next couple of weeks. However, many details still need to be decided.
 
We are partnering on this event with the Rotary Club of Hillsborough.
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
At the April 23rd meeting we had Kaaren May Phd Director of Industry research at UPEI's School of Sustainable Design Engineering spoke about the SHAD program.  SHAD's mission is to empower exceptional youth to make the world a better place. Every July, about 900 of Canada’s best and brightest come together to experience SHAD’s unique experiential-learning program - rooted in the STEAM disciplines of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics – while gaining self-confidence, entrepreneurial and workforce skills, internship opportunities, and a network for life. SHAD Fellows are Change Makers for Canada here at home and around the world. There is a chapter of SHAD at UPEI for those willing to get involved.
