Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.

Dr David Mathies spoke to us about The Muskoka & area Health System Transformation this week
The group has been formed to investigate the integration of all Health Care in Muskoka. With the current budget in our area
of $225 million they are looking to save 5% which could be used to offset future deficits. They advocate a 2 hospital
system in Muskoka  and feel that this could be accomplished thru the cost savings that can be achieved.
Dr Mathies has asked that we keep ourselves informed via their website at

Keith and Marta discussed how they utilised our $2500 donation from last year at our August 31 meeting
The project that they completed in 2008 bringing water from reservoirs at the top of the mountain was completely 
wiped out by a land slide during the rainy season and required complete replacement. 120 PVC pipes were purchased and with 
the help of the villagers the system was replaced. They also built 3 latrines in the squatters village.  Another $2500 was donated
for their work to continue this winter.
