Rotaract Club

Posted by President Kristie Mieklejohn on Aug 21, 2017
President Tracy Bray introduced the President of the Rotaract Club, Kristie Mieklejohn who attended the lunch meeting with another Rotaract member, Chris Bauer.  Recently the Rotary Club of Belleville, along with Quinte Sunrise and the Trenton Rotary Club each agreed to financially support the Rotaract Club, based on a frugal budget submission.  Our Club has members who work at Loyalist College who have helped the Rotaract Club and supported their initiatives.  Having the support of three Rotary Clubs will add to their growth and experience and hopefully attract them to become future Rotarians when their schooling is finished.  They are a hardworking, ambitious group of young people.  They have recently taken on the initiative of manning the gates at the Quinte Exhibition Labour Day weekend in order to raise funds in the amount of  approximately $4,000 that will assist them in finishing a project they have recently started in the downtown.  We look forward to hearing from President Kristie when she speaks to the club in the near future.
