President Eric Snyder
Thank you for visiting the Hanover Rotary website. I am Eric Snyder, Club President for 2022-2023.
I had the opportunity to talk to Rotarian Jim about Rotary and the projects they were working on in Hanover. He invited me to attend a meeting.
During the meting I saw the camaraderie amongst the members. I listened to the work the club had done in the Hanover area and were planning to do and I was hooked.
Why did I join Rotary? Rotary allows me to give back to my community, and have the opportunity to be part of a global community of like minded people who are working towards a common goal.
The Hanover Rotary Club is proud to support many great community programs and initiatives, including WES for Youth and the important services they provide.
“Thank you to the Hanover Rotary Club for their generous donation in helping to ensure that WES for Youth Online is able to provide an accessible service for all! Did you know that accessibility is the biggest advantage of virtual counselling? Accessibility can be thought about in a few different ways. Firstly, in terms of geographic location. Youth from remote and rural communities all across Ontario are able to access WES for Youth Online wherever they live. WES for Youth Online serves communities from Thunder Bay to Toronto, Sarnia to Ottawa, Windsor to James Bay – and everywhere in between. Accessibility also takes on the form of access to service. All that is required for WES for Youth Online service is an internet connection and device through which to communicate. Youth can reach out anytime they feel the need to communicate their thoughts and feelings, can be anywhere they choose when they do so and can discuss anything they wish. Accessibility can also be explained in terms of physical and practical issues. There is no physical space to navigate, there are no barriers in terms of transportation issues and above all, there is no cost associated for youth with WES for Youth Online. Financial restraints are often an insurmountable barrier for youth and their families, when looking to access mental health services.” – WES for Youth
Helping The Community
At the onset of the global pandemic, the Rotary Club of Hanover purchased 40 gallons of hand sanitizer and donated it to the Hanover & District Hospital, The Village Retirement Residence in Hanover, Hanover Care Centre, Durham’s South Bruce Grey Health Centre and Rockwood Terrace long-term care facility in Durham. Thank you to our front-line workers, and thank you to Hanover Rotarians Joan & Randy for driving to Stratford to pick up the sanitizer, and to Rotarians Joan and Erling for making the deliveries.
