What a time we had....

In “The County” Prince Edward County that is!! 
 
Over 270 Rotarians and guests arrived in Prince Edward County for a weekend of fun, fellowship and inspiration.  The party got started in the evening of Friday, October 26th with a pre conference “Sweet County Welcome” gathering hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Picton and Wellington, featuring local County wines and delectable County treats. An enjoyable evening was had by all.

On Sunday, September 30, 2018, over 260 Rotarians from District 7070 and their families walked the 2 and 5 km walks at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg and toured the famed gallery, at the 2018 Rotary District 7070 Foundation Walk, hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Alliston, Aurora, Kleinburg, Nobleton & Schomberg, Markham Sunrise, Markham Unionville, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, and Woodbridge, and raised over $100,000 for the Rotary Foundation Annual Programs Fund.........

“There is nothing intangible about Rotary: It is reality itself. To give is to receive; to lose oneself is to find oneself; to be happy is to serve. These are old truths…for the individual…and the mass, whether application be in the exchange of goods, toil, knowledge, or love.” — The Meaning of Rotary, THE ROTARIAN, November 1921 as written by Crawford C. McCullough, Rotary Club of Fort William, Ontario.

We are in a season of celebrations, times for giving and receiving, and opportunities to get together with friends and family. Whatever we may celebrate as individuals, as Rotarians, we join together in a spirit of service. 

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, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we need your help. Rotarians have helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children against polio in 122 countries. For as little as $0.60, a child can be protected against this crippling disease for life. Give Now

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.

We are District 7070 Proud

This video was played in the House of Friendship at the 2018 Rotary International Convention in Toronto. Rotary Clubs were asked to send in photos of their signature projects that made them feel proud to be Rotarians. Thank you to all of the Rotary Clubs in District 7070 who contributed. Thank you to Dale Duke of the Rotary Club of Oshawa for creating the video. Click here
