211 Service Presentation
FBarb Proctor introduced Tracey Legault-Davis who is the 211 Outreach Coordinator of Volunteer and Information Centre of HPE which is a free service offering information on all the human and social services in this area. The Centre is
trying to raise awareness and did a mailing in the area which resulted in a 72% increase in calls
for assistance but she believes much more needs to be done. The Centre is connected to 211, a country wide, federally funded information service for social services. Tracey manages the local branch, Volunteer and Information Centre of HPE.

Back the Build

The Rotary Club of Picton has exemplified just what Service Above Self means to their members with an announcement of a$100,000 pledge to the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Back the Build campaign to build a new hospital in the County.

“Picton Rotary’s philanthropic support of the hospital is both longstanding and unwavering,” said Shannon Coull, executive director of the PECMH Foundation. “This pledge follows more than 19 years of generous donations from the membership. They have contributed over $110,000 which has helped fund important projects such as the construction of the dialysis unit in 2002. They have also helped support priority equipment purchases like the digital mammography machine with proceeds from their annual golf tournament. Picton Rotary’s generosity has enabled the hospital to make great strides in improving healthcare for patients. Their commitment to help Back the Build for a new hospital reinforces the club’s legacy of supporting the hospital, and for that we are so grateful.”
