Thank you for your interest in the Rotary Club of Festival City.
The Rotary Club of Festival City Stratford is proud to announce that Jean Aitcheson who has been a member of the club for 15 years was recently appointed to the Order of Canada. Jean is being recognized for her work with the medical mission depot in Stratford which she founded 30 years ago. The depot collects used medical supplies which, with the help of her volunteers, are shipped to countries in need. Countries include Beirut Lebanon after the explosion, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Nicaragua, and most recently Ukraine among others. In addition Jean has lead teams of volunteers and health care providers to many countries where clinics were set up to provide medical care where little or none is available. The Rotary Club has assisted with at least 6 of Jean's mission trips. Jean will be invested with the Order at Rideau Hall later in 2023.
Pictures include Jean showing what her medal will look like and with Dianne Yundt who described Jean's work at a recent Rotary meeting.
The Festival City Rotary Curling team of Kirk Riehl (2nd from left), Bill Helmuth (blue jacket), Julian Piwowarski (red Jacket) and Tina Grasby (far right) curled with Rotary curlers from Scotland. The Scottish team is touring Southwestern Ontario playing other Rotary teams. In Stratford the Scottish curlers in the picture were hosted by the Stratford Rotary Club.  
The Rotary Club of Festival City Stratford has twinned with the Hout Bay Rotary Club in Cape Town South Africa. Carolyn Herrick, president of the Hout Bay Rotary Club, and Bob Burchett president of the Rotary Club of Festival City exchanged club banners and received certificates certifying the twining of the clubs.
