Our Meeting on November 11 at Solstice has been canceled in lieu of a concert to be held at the Mississauga Living Arts Centre, commencing at 7:00 p.m. The concert details are the following:
This concert will feature a repertoire of music themed around the era of World War One. We welcome The Band of The Royal Regiment of Canada and The Mississauga Symphony Orchestra with guest soloists, speakers and special guests. Attendees will also be invited to take part in the recitation of the celebrated poem “In Flanders Fields” written by WW1 Canadian solider, John McCrae, MD. The band and the symphony will each perform separately and culminate with a performance of “The Maple Leaf Forever”.
(In collaboration with Heritage Mississauga, photos of WW1 veterans from Mississauga will be provided.)
Raise a glass or two – to Rotary wineJoseph Chin
MISSISSAUGA – Never let it be said that the good folks at the Mississauga Lakeshore Rotary Club lack imagination. In fact, they’ve got loads of it.
Thinking outside the box, they recently launched an exclusive branded wine – a first for Rotarians in Canada and perhaps the world (and there are some 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries!).
The story began 18 months ago when it occurred to former president Dick Chataway that if the local LCBO store manager could be convinced to carry a bottle of Rotary-labelled wine, the club might be able to earn a few dollars for its charitable activities.
That they were entirely lacking in knowledge or expertise in the field of wine didn’t appear to faze them.
Early on, the decision was made to work with a domestic winery and not import wine; the past few decades, they knew, have proved that in select pockets of Ontario, the climate and geography lend themselves to growing European grape varieties that makes possible the production of world-class wines.
Still, any successful project requires a bit of luck.
“In our case, we ‘lucked in’ when we met Paul and Michèle Bosc from the pioneering Bosc family who own and operate Château des Charmes in Niagara-on-the-Lake,” says Chris Chorlton, self-described as Chataway’s “No. 2 man” and chair of the club’s charitable foundation. “Although admittedly skeptical initially, they agreed to work with us to provide industry knowledge and to recommend appropriate wines when, and if, we were ready.”
Anil brought in our new Rotary year with a thoughtful presentation of who we are and where we fit in the Rotary International family. Looking forward to an exciting year ahead!
Thank you Jodi and Jack for selecting, coordinating with, and delivering safely home, eight students from 4 high schools which attended a "learn about business", live-in, seminar on the UTM campus; held May 07 - May 10. Other members of the club participated in the delivery of course content. Thank you all.
Derek Peters will lead a team of club members to construct a much-needed, 2-bedroom suite for mothers with 4- 6 children
With Halloween just days away, we got a chance to show off our costumes. President Dick maintained his vacation attire (after just returning from a fantastic European vacation!), Liz and Fred showed off some authentic, custom-made African attire, and Shoreh our treasurer was looking devilishly good!
