Back-to-school gifts make a difference for Indigenous students chosing to continue their education.

The Healing of the Seven Generations, is a Kitchener agency that distributes backpacks to about 300 indiginous students each year.  As a gesture of encouragement for that journey back to school, the student receives a pair of running shoes and a backpack stuffed with school supplies.

"It has nothing to do with finances," said Donna Dubie, executive director, "It has to do with us honouring that they're going to school." A good education is key to living a fulfilling, rich life. But school is also a toxic subject for many Indigenous people.

Rotary Sunrise is supporting this cause with a $500 donation for the backpack program.

The Fentanyl Crisis in Cambridge

During the past year, Dr Nykamp says the number of drug overdose-related deaths in Cambridge has doubled.

Police, crime prevention and health officials are teaming up to educate the public about the dangers of fentanyl and how to access and administer the live-saving antidote, giving more time for help to arrive.  Unfortunately, that message sometimes comes too late.

Dr Nykamp has already been speaking with city and region officials, and well as staff at different health and social service agencies, about the fentanyl crisis and the impacts it’s having on the community.

“What we need is a grass-roots organization to start dealing with this,” he said. “We can reverse this by working together.”

War Trauma & Experiences of World War I Veterans Treated at the Ontario Military Hospital, Cobourg

In recognition of the thousands of veterans who returned with lasting trauma from the First World War, Dr. Bogaert will be speaking about the experiences of First World War veterans treated for psychiatric illnesses at the Ontario Military Hospital in Cobourg, Ontario. While the term “shell shock” retained social currency long after the war, veterans at this hospital were diagnosed with a diverse array of illnesses, which some were able to attribute to their military service and receive compensation from the Board of Pension Commissioners (BPC). Looking at individual veterans’ interactions with doctors and the BPC, this talk will outline the perception and treatment of psychiatric illnesses during and immediately following the First World War.

Langs Capital Campaign

Rosemary Smith is the co-chair of the Langs Capital Campaign and will present the future needs and plans for Langs Community Centre.

Almost 40 years ago, a group of caring residents saw a need and imagined a community development project that would change their neighbourhood for the better; an organization that would bring multiple programs and services under one roof and continue to transform based on the changing needs of the community. This place is Langs.


In its first year of operation at the new location, over 8000 individuals were served. That participation rate has increased by more than 78% to over 15,000 individuals being served today. In a recent HUB survey, 82% of respondents indicated they felt more connected to the community and 72% accessed a service for the first time.

Currently, 20 community partners call the HUB@1145 home. Fourteen more have expressed interest in joining the team.

An opportunity to expand the HUB@1145 now exists. This expansion will allow Langs and their community partners to do even more for the Cambridge community.


The expansion will provide:

  • Additional community space, offices and group rooms for new programs
  • Space for 5-7 more partners to provide more services to the community
  • Additional parking
  • Langs will be able to provide service to an additional 3,000 people annually and reduce wait times for all particpants
