The mission
The Rotary Foundation helps members advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by improving health, providing quality education, improving the environment, and alleviating poverty.
What impact can one donation have?

President's Message

Maddie Roy

June is Rotary Fellowships month and July is New Leadership month...
 
... which means, this is my last bulletin message to the Passport Club! Next Sunday will be the first in the month of July and the first of the new Rotary year. My term as President is coming to an end (cue customary joke about not being dragged off the golf course in my newfound freedom?) and our wonderful Margaret Shibley and her board of directors are coming into their roles full of vision and enthusiasm!
 
For those of you in and around Canada's capital, the opportunity to meet with incoming President Jennifer Jones and her Rotary entourage is fast approaching. Click here to read about her upcoming trip to District 7040. If there are any baseball players among us, do take notice that there is an opportunity to play!
 
Among the other exciting Rotary things happening in our orbit - our club is welcoming new members whom you will hear from directly very soon and our district is welcoming and sending out Rotary Youth Exchange students!
 
See you on Tuesday,
 
Maddie
 
President Elect
 
I admit, I had no idea what I was agreeing to when Jacinthe asked me if I would be President Nominee in 2020. It has been an extraordinary learning experience and I am grateful for the tolerance, experience, and wisdom you have shared. 
 
I've just been reading the things I wrote for the Bulletin since 1 August 2021. That was when we first spoke about and then began to implement our Social Meetings. Apart from getting to know each other better, we've a better understanding of how set up those informal opportunities for conversation. As experiments go, it was definitely valuable. The 2022/23 Board will be discussing how to take what we've learned and establish systems that meet our needs for fellowship, service, communication, and administration, all in ways that continue to Make Rotary fit your life. It should be an interesting discussion.

Secretary's Thoughts
 
We changeover to a new President and Board on Tuesday. Please attend to help thank them for their service and to greet our incoming members.
 
As always, we open online for fellowship and entry 30 minutes prior to scheduled start. It's  a great opportunity to meet and interact with fellow members.
