Welcome to the Rotary Club of District 6330 Passport

"We make Rotary fit your life"
Our Club
December is Disease Prevention and Treatment Month in Rotary. The pandemic unfortunately has schooled most people on the toll that disease takes on our communities.But fighting disease is something that Rotarians around the world have been doing for decades. In fact, it is one of Rotary’s seven areas of focus.
As Rotarians, we believe that good health and well-being is a human right – even though 400 million people across the globe do not have access to essential health services. The work we do in establishing clinics, eye hospitals, and blood banks, as well as in building infrastructure for medical facilities in underserved communities, all returns to a central belief that access, prevention, and education are the keys to stopping deadly outbreaks that harm the most vulnerable.
The results of our 1st Annual Strategic Planning meeting are in! Many thanks go to those that participated in the committee, their input and ideas were very much appreciated! A new vision statement, mission statement and club goals were created and accepted by our membership. With these plans in place, we are looking forward to growing and strengthening our club for many years to come!

Looking for a new way to get your nose stuck into a book?

The 6330 Rotary Passport club, to celebrate Rotary's month of basic education and literacy, is hosting a virtual book club for the month of September! In collaboration with Shelterbox Canada, readers will have a month to complete Shelterbox's recommended book of the month, which focuses on countries where Shelterbox does its valuable work. All readers, whether reading their first book of the year or have lost count, are invited!

This month we'll be following the story of Syrian refugee Abu Bakr Al Rabeeah and his family in the novel "Homes". Coauthored by Winnie Yeung and Abu Bakr, the story intimately describes the Syrian conflict and the journey Abu Bakr's family undertakes to find safety and a new home in Canada. Nominated as a 2019 Canada Reads finalist, this book is great for readers at all speeds to learn more about the crisis which has unfolded in Syria and the trials and tribulations of the refugee experience.

Over the next month, we'll be posting more about certain themes from the book and the work Shelterbox does worldwide. We will be announcing a date for a virtual event, in late September, where readers are invited to join for group discussion, including hearing remarks from the book's author(s). There is no cost to join the club but donations are welcomed for Passport club's year-long campaign to aid Shelterbox in the amazing work they do. Homes can be found in some libraries/bookstores and can be purchased online through:
On June 27th, we had our Change Over Meeting. Held virtually this year, it was a well attended and fun afternoon. We celebrated our successes over the past year and looked forward an exciting year ahead.

Our club member Pam at a meeting with Rotary Club Zagreb, Croatia. Rotary Club Zagreb is the club that hosted Pam on her Rotary Youth Exchange 18 years ago when she went to Croatia for the first time.  6330 Passport had a friendship exchange with Croatia and know many of these Rotarians personally. 
6330 Passport members reached out on social media during a recent projects trip to El Salvador to secure stoves for a village in El Salvador.  We were in the village as a Rotary project to help present stoves to much of the village but found that there were additional families in need.  The stoves are made locally and cost approximately $70.00 US.  The stoves use less wood than open fire burning and are safer for the family.  We delivered 40 stoves that day and raised funds for 53 more with the help of the local mayor, the Rotary Club of Noroeste and Clubs in District 6990 (Florida), 7040 (Ontario/NY) and friends and family of 6330 Passport. Thank you to all the contributors.  
Rotarians, Rotaractors and Interactors from 'in and around' the Sarnia area walked a 5K track on Sunday October 20th to raise awareness and funds for Rotary's Polio Plus campaign.
Passport members Sue and Rick Storie in London, Ontario deliver school supplies to the Mission Services "Fill a Bus" Campaign in London. The supplies will be used by Rotholme Women's and Family Shelter.
Thank you to Club Member Adriennne and to Crock A Doodle (inside the Sarnia Real Canadian Superstore) for putting on our Paint Party Fundraiser!!!
