RTO/ERO HISTORY

We would like to establish a written chronological

history of District 3 Algoma: each Past President would

write a summary or highlights of their term as the

leader of our group. It will be enjoyable to read the

background and narration of our organization from the

earliest times to the present.

If you could send a 150-175 word reflection of your

year(s) at the helm to Rich Prophet at

richpro@shaw.ca, it would be greatly appreciated.

We hope to publish these incrementally in the near

future.

First Article, by Past President John Fleming!
“Thank You” to the many District    3 members who volunteered    their time at the Davey Home    Tuck Shop!
Vision Screening   --  Submitted by Bernice Whalen We are proud to announce that we are entering our ninth year in Vision Screening. This was a Service to Others Project initiated by Marilyn Patterson meshing a beautiful partnership with RTO-ERO and the Lions Club. What a significant difference in the lives of so many students we have made as early identification of vision problems makes the world of difference for children in reading and ultimately in school success. Last year 128 students were referred for further testing. Thanks to the volunteers from RTO-ERO we have made the academic world a more promising place for children in our community! Carolyn Evoy has agreed to remain on as co-ordinator of scheduling in team capacity with Merrilyn Webb and Penny Tyrrel.  As the old saying goes----“Many hands make for light work!” If you have even two hours during the year you can donate some morning to this worthy endeavour, please contact Carolyn Evoy at 705-759-1145 or e-mail her at carolyn.evoy@gmail.com . Schools and times can be tailored to meet individual needs. We proudly recognize last year’s volunteers: Joyce Duncan, Carolyn Evoy, Linda Prodan, Gerry Yeo, Carol McFarlane, Mary Coulais, Mary Johns, Don Cameron, Susan Allen, Ann Blake, Wendy Piper, Jan Baraniuk, Penny Tyrrel, David, Tyrrel, Frank Donnelly, Carmelina Spry, Carmen Charsley, Rita Wagner and Merrilyn Webb.
