In 2011, under the guidance of our Rotarian Michelle Peters, and the support of Rotary Brockville, an EarlyAct club was chartered at Vanier Public School. The students form their own executive with members from each class and conduct monthly meetings. They have been very active and have raised over $30,000 for various causes including the Smiles Program, Shelter Box and most recently for a birthday party for the children in the Chausey Orphanage in Belarus. This spring a student and his mom and Madam Peters journeyed to Belarus to bring the party to the children. The party was shared with the EarlyAct club via skype.
