Be The Inspiration in our New Rotary Year!

What an incredible time it is to be a Rotarian in Rotary District 7070. We have just hosted the world in Toronto for the very inspiring 2018 Rotary International Convention, and what a party that was! Huge thanks to everyone who attended and volunteered, with special thanks to the members of the Host Organizing Committee led by Rotarian rock stars Michele Guy of the Rotary Club of Toronto and PDG Michael Cooksey of the Rotary Club of Scarborough.  And there's more excitement around the corner as we launch our new Rotary year...

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.....

Rotary International President Ian Riseley has asked us to plant a tree for every Rotarian in our district, between July 1st and April 22nd, 2018 – Earth Day.  I am pleased to say we have partnered with Highway of Heroes Tribute to help make this happen.  Through available District Designated Funds, we’ve funded the planting of a tree for every Club along the Highway for Heroes (between Trenton and Toronto).  Additionally, we have a Family Planting Day planned for Earth Day (Sunday, April 22nd), at a location to be finalised.  That’s 2,200 trees already committed.  Mark Cullen was a featured speaker at the DC, and we have a 2:1 on trees – just for Rotarians.  But you know, that goal of just 2,200 trees is not particularly ambitious for our district.  Several Clubs already have environmental initiatives every year.  Working with Clubs and liaising with Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group, I’d like to suggest we plant a tree for every single attendee to our International Convention.  I think 30,000+ trees sounds much more impressive.  And we have a designated Mr. Tree in the district on Kevin Power, to help aggregate all our projects.
Individual Rotarians and Rotary Clubs that have completed tree plantings can enter their information through the link above to add the trees to our district tally.

Thank you to Dale Duke of the Rotary Club of Oshawa for creating the video. Click here
