On 23 February 1905, Paul P. Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele, and Hiram E. Shorey gathered in Loehr’s office for what would become known as the first Rotary club meeting.
Harris’s desire for camaraderie among business associates brought together these four men and eventually led to an international organization of service and fellowship.

“What can you make with 1000 cans of tomatoes, 400 cans of corn, 200 cans of tuna and 100 cans of beans?” asks Alyssa Blais, Executive Director of the Agapè Centre and member of the Canstruction® Cornwall planning committee. “You will have to wait until April 16th to find out!”
For the first time in Cornwall, teams of engineers, builders, designers, students and supporters plus more than 8,000 cans of food will converge at the Benson Centre this spring for Canstruction®.
Canstruction® is an international charity competition in which teams compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. At the close of the competition all of the food is donated to the Agapè Centre.
