Brian Thompson District Governor 7070                                                                                           

This year, we're building on the good work we’ve already accomplished with our theme: "Light Up Rotary!"  ... and we're doing it with energy, passion, and fun! And, with the support of our Rotary Foundation, we are making a difference in our world. Take just 1 minute and 27 seconds to watch the video below and see what I mean.
In my official club visits  (which by now total almost all of the 54 clubs we have throughout the district), I have learned more about how lives are being changed by Rotary service. I have truly enjoyed the privilege of meeting close to two thousand of my fellow members in their own digs across this district and hearing some of their stories, one at a time. I have met some very fine people.
We have an inspiring team, and we're getting stronger, thanks to the collective hard work and enthusiasm of Rotarians ... and sometimes their friends and families too!
As we continue our year together, we remember President Gary's lesson from Confucius, whom he calls the world’s first Rotarian: “It is better to light a single candle than to sit and curse the darkness." We can each let our own light shine in Rotary, and many of you are! As we Light Up Rotary together, we'll light up the world.
Not a Rotarian? Want to learn more? Check out our website to find the club nearest you. We'd love to have you join us for a meeting! Maybe you'll want to join our Rotary family. It's a great way to let your light shine.
Yours in Rotary,  Brian

New match arrangement could raise US$525 million for global eradication effort

LISBON, Portugal (25 June 2013) Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation today announced an extension of their existing fundraising partnership that could generate up to US$525 million in new money for polio eradication as the global effort to end this crippling disease enters its critical endgame phase.

Under the new agreement, announced before an audience of more than 20,000 Rotary members from 160 countries gathered in Lisbon for the humanitarian group’s annual convention, the Gates Foundation will match 2 for 1 every new dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication up to $35 million per year through 2018.

Hello District 7070 Rotarians,

A new addition to our our website will be the ability to register for events online and if a payment is necessary, you'll be able do it via a secure payment processing option with a credit card (Visa or Mastercard only at this time)!


This article appeared in the Globe and Mail September 28, 2012 concerning the eradication of polio by 2018 if all goes well. Bill Gates' efforts were the main feature of the fund raising part of the article but it included reference to Rotary International, Wilf Wilkinson and even the Gov't of Canada matching funds raised for this program in Canada.
