June is Rotary Fellowships Month
June is designated Rotary Fellowships Month to recognize the importance of international fellowship and goodwill among Rotarians with similar recreational and vocational interests, promote increased participation in fellowships, and increase understanding of this program. What are the benefits for Rotarians in joining the Rotary Fellowships? Fellowship provides opportunities for Rotarians to make lasting friendships outside their own Club, District or country. There are many Fellowships that would be of interest to our members, and they are detailed on www.rotary.org/fellowships. You may find many extensive activities of the Rotary Fellowships that your profession, business or industry area has already established.

Helping the People of Nepal
We have all witnessed the earthquake devastation in Nepal with the latest account that about 2 million people have been displaced from their homes and all are in desperate need for assistance. The Rotary Club of London Foundation has donated $5,000.00 to Shelter Box to provide family tents, groundcovers, blankets, water filtration kits, cooking utensils, basic tool kits, play packages for children and other items.
 
Shelter Box is a Canadian Registered Charity that has a strong partnership with Rotary as their major donor. If you would like further information about Shelter Box, please view their website at  http://www.shelterboxcanada.org/ .
 
You too can make a difference! If you are so inclined, please forward your donation to the Rotary Club of London Foundation via cheque or credit card to Sandy Ronson at sandyr@bell.net.
 
The Interact Club of London at Work
The Interactors have 3 big fundraisers coming ‎up in the next month.  Your support would be greatly appreciated.
 
Swear to Care Campaign Monday, June 1 and Friday, June 5: 
Their 2nd annual Swear to Care Campaign takes place between Monday, June 1 and Friday, June 5 and consists of a swear jar and display being placed in offices where employees can contribute as they see fit. The money goes to Literacy London which provides customized literacy and numeracy tutoring to adults in London. Last year they raised $750. Interested in participating?  Please contact Andrew at apwmuch13@gmail.com and he will provide you with all the necessary information. Interact will supply the jars and a small informational display will advise which day they plan on delivering the jars. 
 
BBQ Sunday, June 7th in the Rotary Square at the Covent Garden Market: 
They will be holding a BBQ in the Rotary Square on Sunday, June 7 from 11:00 to 2:00. All proceeds will be donated to Start With Water which is a Rotary charity that works to provide sustainable and safe drinking water to places in need around the world.

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.
