Last summer in July, the Rotary Club of Corner Brook Club sold boxes of tulip bulbs to family and friends.  All the money raised selling tulip bulbs by Rotary clubs in District 7620 was donated to the Rotary End Polio Now Fund
On the day before World Polio Day, October 24, 2020 donated tulip bulbs were planted around the site of the new Corner Brook sign on the lawn, West Street. This project helped to eradicate polio throughout the world and will beautify the city in the spring when the tulips bloom. Most people who had bought tulip bulbs from Rotarians, planted their bulbs outdoors in the fall but some planted their bulbs in doors for early blooming.  The photo attached is a beautiful photo of an indoor planting of the tulips bought from Rotary.
 The outdoor bulbs as they bloom will bring pleasure but these blooming tulip now  bring hope and joy.
 
On March 24, Rotary Club of Corner Brook President Dr Chris Healey presented a cheque for $500 to Bernie Park Grade 3 teacher at Sacred Heart Elementary School, Curling. Each year the Rotary Club organises a Read A-Long for an elementary school in the Corner Brook area.  This year the school selected was Sacred Heart Elementary School
The cheque donated by Grenfell Campus was given to the school to buy classroom library books for each of the nine Sacred Heart classrooms. The classroom teachers select and buy books from this donation.
Normally Rotarians and friends of Rotary go to the school to read in each classroom a story or chapter selected by the classroom teacher from one of the purchased books.
In non-covid times special guests such as Leif the Lucky, RNC representative, fireman, Corner Brook mayor Jim Parsons and others are invited to come along to visit the classrooms to talk with the students. The aim is to encourage students to enjoy reading and learning. 
This year it is hoped if Rotarians cannot read in person, then they can meet the students virtually. 
 
Professor John Bodner spoke to Rotary on January 21 2021 about Conspiracy Theories.
He showed the recently published  book "Covid -19 Conspiracy Theories- QAnon, the New World Order and Other Viral Ideas" that he coauthored with Wendy Welch, Ian Brodie, Anna Muldoon, Donald Leech and Ashley Marshall as he began his most interesting and informative talk.
