Noel C.M. Eustace
Noel grew up and went to school in Moncton. This is also where he and Karen first met and have been together ever since. Also while in high school, he attended his first Rotary meeting with his father, a Charter member of the Rotary Club of Dieppe. He attended Acadia University studying business, specifically marketing and management. Having grown up in an entrepreneurial family, his father has always been and still is a mentor and role model to him. Lessons of doing things right, never give up, focus and determination, be fair and honest, do the right things for the right reasons, be humble and help others are all keys to who he has become today.
With this upbringing in mind and after establishing a successful corporate career, Noel left the corporate life to help his father build a newly acquired business. Not long after this, Noel was approached and asked if he would be interested in joining the Rotary Club. Without asking any questions, he said yes and joined the Rotary Club of Moncton West and Riverview. He was only 25! That’s when there was about 20 members in the club too. He is now a member of the Rotary Club of Fredericton North.
They successfully built that business to become one of the largest independent distributors in the power equipment industry in Eastern Canada with facilities in Guelph Ontario and Moncton and close to 20 employees. With three young children at home, a growing business and Karen’s support Noel decided to go back to school. He earned his post grad, an MBA in International Marketing and Multicultural Communications, from the Universitie De Moncton. Normally a 3 year program, he completed in 2 1/2 years. He also completed his project management certification, and is a high performance hockey coach, even coaching as high as Hockey Canada. He is even thinking of a Phd now.
After 20 years, he spent some time with an international engineering firm, then became an entrepreneur once again. With over 30 years as a marketing professional he is now in the branding business, owners of Instant Imprints Atlantic, a franchise in branding solutions. They have locations in Fredericton and soon to open one in Charlottetown. With one of the top 3 locations in North America, Noel has been tasked by the CEO to travel North America to help coach other franchisees how to do what they do in Fredericton.
Needless to say, Noel is still gainfully employed. A change from many who take the Governor’s role. As a second-generation Rotarian, now close to 30 years in Rotary, Noel has been involved in many roles and positions within his club, the district and even RI. His passion is with youth exchange and Rotaract. During his year as President, he Chartered the first Rotaract Club in our District. He and Karen have hosted over a dozen exchange students and two of their 3 children have been exchange students. Now empty nesters, Noel and Karen together have dedicated much of their time and efforts into Rotary.

Do you know about Rotary Tulips?

see picture below
A group of Rotarians in Holland have developed the beautiful tulip in yellow and red to celebrate our END POLIO NOW efforts.
Vesseys is selling them and 20% of the sales will go to polio. They say that each box sold will raise enough money to protect 8 children.

The cost per box is $21.95 but if you buy above four boxes it is only $17.95 or $20.00 including tax. ( 25 bulbs per box) So the Sackville club is going to place the order for all our members to get the reduced price. We have gone to the town and asked if they would dedicate one of their flower Bed to a “END POLIO NOW tulip garden.” We have suggested they plant 75 tulips ,plus a few more, so that in 2020 we can celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations in this manner.



I share this with you because other clubs may be inspired to do something similar. We will plant the tulips this Oct 24, 2019 - Polio day and United Nations Day. It is a very simple and easy thing to do! Can you get this out to others. Maybe your communities could do this?


Please help by getting the word out to other clubs. The tulips must be ordered this month.

Greetings all,

Please send this to every Rotarian in District 7810. (It would be good to post this on our district site as well. ) It is important that every Rotarians knows this latest information. We have more reported cases in 2019 than in 2018. They go on to tell of the things we need to be thankful for such as the last four years we have been under 100 cases per year Nigeria has reached three years.
