The Rotary ‘GREAT LAKES WATERSHED CLEANUP’ is on right now.  From Saturday April 24 (to coincide with Earth Day on April 22)  through mid June 2021, over 20,000 Rotarians on both sides of the Canadian and U.S. border will roll up their sleeves to collect refuse along the shoreline, and innumerable waterway tributaries to the Great Lakes basin.  This is great example of ‘ROTARY IN ACTION’ and brings considerable community attention to the importance of ‘ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY’

With the Ontario COVID-19 shutdown to the end of April, we encourage Rotary and Rotaract clubs to find a date between now and mid June that works for your club to participate.

The District 7070 Environmental Action Committee is leading Rotary's Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup Initiative, here in our District 7070, as it gets rolled out right across our District. This is an initiative hatched by our District 7070 Governor Mark Chipman, with his fellow District Governors surrounding the Great Lakes. Mark is very excited about the potential for this event and here's why..... It’s actually huge – with 15 districts involved – 500 Clubs & 20,000 Rotarians.  This is your Call To Action - What is your club doing?   Please Read more....

Your Rotary District 7070 Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution Committee hosted the Tuesday Talk on May 11th — “Two Drops for Peace”: Building Resilient Communities Together with S. R. “MARTIN” RLA Mediator, Architect & Social Entrepreneur, dedicated to sustainability and peacebuilding. He pointed out that the lessons of the past year have demonstrated just how interconnected we all are and that no size community - urban or rural - is immune to violence and Rotarians have demonstrated that we are uniquely prepared for the challenge. To fight disease, we rely on physicians, but to address the deeper divides threatening our communities, we need peacebuilders with the skills to connect with each other and ourselves.

S.R. Martin shared his experience of transitioning from architect to peacebuilder; what he learned from being a Rotary Peace Fellow; and about how Mediators Beyond Borders International, a Rotary Service Partner, is assisting Districts around the world to build Positive Peace and Resiliency in their clubs and communities. The recording is now available on the District 7070 YouTube Chanel: https://youtu.be/uq1kgErEWkY

Rotary Foundation Seminar on Saturday, May 1, 2021 from 8.30 am – 11.00 am  (previously scheduled for April 17, 2021)

Click HERE to see the You Tube recording. This Rotary Foundation Seminar  provided an overview of the Rotary Foundation and gave the participants suggestions and guidelines for writing District and Global Grant project applications.

On Saturday, May 1, 2021, the District Foundation Committee presented an on-line Seminar about the Rotary Foundation and its Grants Program (Global and District Grants).  The Seminar consisted of two sessions, starting at 8.30 am . The Seminar was not an alternative to the District’s Qualification process.  Instead, it can be seen as a compliment to the three training Modules that are found on www.rotary7070.org   However, those attending the Seminar should find it easier to successfully complete the three Quizzes that are required for the Qualification process. The first half of the program provided a general overview of the Rotary Foundation; its mission, funds, ways of supporting the Foundation, the Foundation’s organization and programs.  The second half  covered the Grants program and included case presentations of Global and District Grant projects from the District.

Dear District Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, and Friends of Rotary,

The COVID-19 situation in Canada is evolving on a daily basis and even changing by the hour. The Federal and Provincial Governments, and medical advisors are asking all Canadians to take stronger measures to contain the spread of the virus. At this critical time, we need to practice the necessary hand hygiene practices, social distancing, wear masks, and listen to our public health specialists and governmental officials.
By now you have read Past RI President Mark Maloney and RI President Holger Knaack's email regarding Rotary's Role in Battling Coronavirus, and Past RI President Mark Maloney's email which cancelled the 2020 Convention in Honolulu and re-inveted a Virtual Rotary International Convention in 2019. Here is further communication from Past RI Director Jeffry Cadorette and our new RI Director Valarie Wafer.
We encourage you to call ON AS REGULAR BASIS, your Rotary colleagues who are ill, house-bound for a number of reasons, or Rotarians that you have not seen in a while.  Reach out to your neighbours for the same reasons.  Does someone need groceries, their medication picked up, their dog walked, or to listen to their concerns?
Thank you for keeping us apprised of your Clubs’ response to COVID-19 with respect to meetings and events. Many Rotary and Rotaract Clubs have cancelled their regular meetings and events for the foreseeable future, and have taken to hold virtual club meetings and events. We strongly encourage clubs to continue to suspend all in-person meetings and events until further notice.........  

Rotary clubs around the world are mobilizing in their communities to support the introduction and delivery of COVID-19 vaccinations. Rotary leaders are urging members to connect with their local health agencies to determine how Rotary can support COVID-19 vaccine efforts.

(In the photo)... John Hall, president of the Rotary Club of Trenton, North Carolina, receives his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Jones County immunization day.

Rotary has decades of experience in supporting the distribution of polio vaccines as well as highlighting their power and efficacy, which is a critical reason why polio is on the brink of eradication. It’s this expertise, along with strategic partnerships and innovation, that Rotary members can tap into to protect communities from COVID-19.....

Dear fellow Rotarians and all of the members of the District 7070 Rotary family,

Great news, at the recent meeting of 7070 district Foundation meeting, it was reported that all 55 out of our 55 clubs have submitted Annual Fund goals in MyRotary for a total of $ 183,933.77!  Click here to Donate Now

So far, several clubs have surpassed their Annual Fund goal,  and many of you are still working toward your club's Annual Fund goal. As we near the end of the Rotary year, let’s strive to meet these goals.  For those clubs that have surpassed their goal – thank you!  Perhaps there is an opportunity to donate a bit more!  The world needs the Rotary Foundation more today than it ever has in its history. The Covid-19 pandemic has really put stress on the Rotary Foundation. Over 40 million dollars has been given in grants to clubs around the world to assist in the fight against the pandemic. Rotarians should be proud of the immediate response by our organization to fight this world health crisis.......

To my fellow Rotary and Rotaract family, here in District 7070,

Great news !! At the recent meeting of 7070 District Rotary Foundation committee meeting, it was reported that all 55 out of our 55 clubs have submitted goals in MyRotary for polio eradication for a total of $ 62,000! So far, many clubs have surpassed their goal for polio eradication, but their are still many clubs that are still working on to achieve their goal of at least $1,500 USD as a minimum (as per Rotary International request).  As we near the end of the Rotary year, let’s strive to meet these goals.  For those clubs that have surpassed their goal – thank you!  Perhaps there is an opportunity to donate a bit more!  CLICK HERE TO DONATE

The request by the board of Rotary International and the Foundation board of trustees is that every club to donate $1,500 USD ($1,921CAD) as a minimum. Remember that for every dollar donated the Gates foundation will match 2 to one so $1,500 dollars becomes $4,500 dollars........

Exceptional times called for exceptional actions. COVID-19 forced us to move our regular RLI programming to a virtual format this year. We were excited to be able to bring you the high quality program directly to the comfort of your home. The benefit was that we did not have to worry about traffic or snow!

You came through for us and filled our virtual RLI zoom sessions. Thank you.

Rotary provides an opportunity for all of us to provide service to our community and around the world. The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) has a mission to strengthen Rotary clubs through quality leadership education. As Rotarians, you are already a leader in your community and in your profession. The purpose of RLI is to give you the skills and competencies to be an effective leader in Rotary.

Rotarians new to Rotary and even those with many years of service will benefit from learning how we can create strong clubs with vibrant members who are engaged and committed to Service Above Self.  Now more than ever, the world needs Rotarians to create a more peaceful and equitable world for all.

Congratulations to the Youth Service Committee and Chair Patti Wright for an outstanding presentation on March 9, 2021  for Tuesday Talks on Youth Services. We found out how our clubs can become more involved in so many service to our Youth, here in District 7070, in southern Ontario: Earlyact, Interact, Rotaract, RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards), International Youth Exchange and a brand new venture for District 7070, called ROTEX.

We heard from them and saw first-handed. The Youth Exchange team is looking for volunteers, students for the exchange, and of course, volunteer host families. We found out how our clubs can participate. The RYLA program helps our young adults here in southern Ontario, with so many Leadership Development skills and challenges. The RYLA team is looking for your volunteers to help put together an outstanding RYLA week in 2022. Their planning starts now. They are looking for you. If your club already sponsors a Rotaract or Interact Club, we hope you enjoyed hearing their talk about what they are doing to make a difference in our world. We hope you tuned in live, but just in case, HERE IS  a link to the You Tube recording. This is a "not to miss" Tuesday Talks featuring our own members right here in our District 7070.

Our Tuesday February 9, 2021 Tuesday Talks - Understanding Your Conflict Management Style - RECORDING IS NOW AVAILABLE 

Watch and listen to Gayle Oudeh as she explains how we approach and deal with conflict can make the difference between resolving a conflict quickly or causing it to escalate dramatically. Yet we don’t always think about how we should respond to a conflict – we just react! This session focused on the five different approaches people take to conflict using the metaphor of birds. Are you a woodpecker, owl, hummingbird, parakeet or ostrich? There’s a time and place for each style. Find out how you can resolve conflicts more effectively by adjusting and adapting your conflict management style!

Each new Rotary year, every club in District 7070 is asked to contribute a minimum of $139 to support an HIV/AIDS-related project chosen by the members of RADAR – Rotary Action for the Development of AIDS Responses – our District 7070 AIDS committee. 

Has your Club donated $139 or more, this Rotary year? Here's why, and here's how.........

What's Larry's Email Address?

 It was a rainy day when I got the call. 

 He needed to know, right away,

 "What's his email" he did say. 

  Holding my cell I wanted to yell, please, please, give me the spell,

 The magic we found, by bringing it down

 Gave way to new sight: email addresses, events, phone numbers....ah.....the light!

With rushing to cheer, the awakening is here! 

Downloading the Clubrunner app, all with a fingertip,  it was a snap,

Your club members detail will be very clear, your district executives have no fear.

You'll find what you wish,  there'll be no need to fish.  It's smart on your cell, just do it....time will tell. Read more.....
