At the Farewell dinner for Youth Exchange Student Lara Haderer of Switzerland and her family, all were officially "Canadianized" with a buffalo plaid jacket, a Molson Canadian beer, maple syrup  and a Tim Horton's coffee.  All that was missing was poutine!  Lt to Rt: Brother Janis, exchange student Lara, Mom Tamara and Dad Christian.  Next stop is Temiscaming then Montreal to pick up an RV and tour the Eastern provinces before heading back to Europe.  Beauties eh!!  By the way, we will certainly miss Lara. She was a wonderful youth ambassador for her sponsoring Rotary Club and country.  
In June, a new attraction was dedicated in Bracebridge.  As part of the Woodchester trails, this viewing platform that looks over Muskoka River and the town, was unveiled.  The Rotary Club of Bracebridge provided a large donation to the Town of Bracebridge to have this platform installed.  Attending the unveiling were (Lt. - Rt.)  Club President Kelly Miles, Club President-Elect and Councillor Don Smith, Councillor Barry Hammond and Mayor Rick Maloney.
Rotarian Keith Montgomery awards William Staley of St. Dominic's Secondary School with the Club's Service Above Self Award.  The club gives $3,000 over to years of post secondary education to the student who shows voluntarism in their community while working on their high school diploma.  The award is given to a student from both BMLSS and St. Dom's.
