August is Rotary MEMBERSHIP and EXTENSIONS MONTH
To be an effective, relevant, and vibrant group within a community, a Rotary club needs to continually admit new members and retain current ones. A club's ability to serve the community is directly related to the strength and size of its membership base. A club that stays active encourages Rotarians to remain connected to the organization.
“Each Rotarian: Reach One, Keep One”
"Each Rotarian: Reach One, Keep One," the membership slogan approved by the RI Board of Directors, is a reminder that every Rotarian is responsible for inviting new members and keeping clubs active and vibrant. It also stresses that retention is an essential component of a strong club and membership base.
Finding members
New members bring important benefits to the club, including an increased capacity to serve the community, future leadership, diversity, and fresh ideas, interests, and energy.
Keeping members
Retaining qualified members is as critical to Rotary’s long-term health and success as inducting new ones. Current members who are dedicated, active, and motivated support the effective functioning of the club and are likely to attract new Rotarians.
Our Responsibility
While our Club has an active Membership Committee, all Members of our Club are responsible for “Finding” and Keeping” members – Yes….that means you!

1951 Rotary Wine
It’s Summertime, and the livin’ is easy – a time to relax with friends and family, and a great opportunity to discuss what Rotary does with a friend over a glass of 1951 Rotary wine. VQA wines from Chateau des Charmes with a private Rotary label 1951 are still available from remaining inventory in about 40 LCBO stores across Ontario, and by direct sale from the winery: · 2012 Unoaked Chardonnay · 2011 Cabernet Merlot. Find out the LCBO stores with 1951 inventory or to order direct from the winery by going to www.1951rotarywine.com. When existing LCBO inventories sell out, 1951 will continue to be available direct from Chateau des Charmes. Enjoy fine wines and help others. $1 from the sale of each bottle goes to the Mississauga Lakeshore Rotary Club Foundation. Thanks for your continued support of 1951. 1951 was a very good year!
 

 
 

To celebrate 100 years of service to the London community, Rotary clubs in London are donating $100,000 to install a 14-foot illuminated clock in the tower at Covent Garden Market.  

Highly visible to patrons of Budweiser Gardens and the Market, the clock will enhance the area known as Rotary Square that is home to the Rotary Skating Rink and numerous community events.

Construction will begin in late fall with the official grand opening in March 2015. The same clock builder installed the clock in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa – The Verdin Company.  

The clock will be a spectacular enhancement to the existing Market structure and beautify the area while raising the profile of Rotary Square.
