Our Cause for the Night
The Saugeen Shores Police
Contingency Fund -
'Offering a Helping Hand'
To establish a small fund that the Saugeen Shores Police Service may use at their discretion, to assist and provide a helping hand to both victims, offenders, and their family members to meet basic humanitarian needs. For example:
to provide a bed for the night, a hot drink and meal, dry clean clothing, basic essentials, and activity kits for children.
This new fund is based on a proposal by Rotarian John Vanbastelaar in consultation with the Police Chief, Kevin Zettel.
Southampton Rotary Club
Southampton is a "Rotary Town", with scores of examples of Rotary funded projects, from playgrounds, splash pads, pavilions, student scholarships, youth exchange programs, support to the Foodbanks, Women’s Shelters, International disaster relief, clean water, and maternal health projects and much more...!
Where there is a need you will find a Rotarian looking at how we may make our community and the world a better place.
Your Entertainment for the Evening
The Pleats, a lively and entertaining quartet featuring homegrown singing talent and multiple instruments, is an area favourite.
The ensemble plays everything from Gospel to Modern style, Bluegrass to Celtic classics and treats the audience to an eclectic set of covers, along with old Scottish and Irish tunes.
The band—made up of Brenda Manderson on vocals, piano, ukulele, and guitar; Nicole Reid on vocals, violin, and guitar; Nick Reid on Great Highland bagpipes; and Laurie Dalton on vocals and bass guitar—was formed about six years ago when the musical chemistry among the group became clear.
With over 50 songs in their diverse collection, Dalton says they decide what to bring to the audience based on an instinctive approach. “We just pick out what makes us happy and what we think will suit the listeners”.
A guest appearance by our very Southampton Rotarian....don't tell his pupils..!
Fiona competed at the North American Irish Dancing Championships held in Vancouver, British Columbia in July, 2019 where she secured her spot as a solo competitor for the world competition that was to occur in April 2020 in Dublin. With the onset of COVID, the worlds competition was cancelled three weeks prior to departure for Dublin.
The World Irish Dancing Championships would have been celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2020, which would have made it a a truly momentous occasion for Fiona.. Worlds were then rescheduled to August 2021, and just recently announced that they are cancelled once again in 2021 and rescheduled to 2022.
Fiona has not decided if she will be competing at the Worlds in 2022 as she will be attending University. Something she deferred by one year due to COVID.
Fiona started her dancing career in September 2012. At 10 years of age, Jagelewski was older than the typical beginners at the Irish dance academy and many girls her age already had a few years' experience, but hours and hours of studio time and fast feet took her down an extraordinary path.
In 2018 Fiona began training at the Doyle Corrigan Academy in Waterloo/London and Baden. During COVID, training was done via Zoom in which she participated from a makeshift stage built by her dad in her basement. Classes have recently commenced in Baden which means three nights a week the trek to Waterloo Region happens.

Shakey Trill is an original, gutsy and raw blues/folk duo from Saugeen Shores, Ontario, Canada. Shakey was a nickname given to guitarist/vocalist Mike MacDonald because of his jittery hands. Trill, by definition is the sound of two notes being played rapidly back and forth. Tyler Pantlin fittingly exemplifies this with his harmonica technique.
In January 2019 the duo participated at the 35th International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee representing the Bruce County Blues Society. The challenge was a week long event with performances up and down the famous Beale Street. They were part of the solo/duo category which included over 80 different acts from around the globe. Shakey Trill made it into the final round, top 8 spots which earned them the privilege to play at the historic Orpheum Theatre in Memphis.
