2015: 100 YEARS OF ROTARY LONDON
We are celebrating big and we want you to share it with us!
Start spreading the news to your business colleagues, family and friends about the great deeds being carried out by Rotary International and our Rotary Club.
Tell them about our dictionary literacy project in London elementary schools and internationally in Danli, Honduras; our work to eradicate polio; how we are saving the environment by shipping school desks, chairs, etc., to Haiti to help the Haitians re-equip their hurricane destroyed schools.
Remind them Rotary is a global network of community volunteers. There are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians in over 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Rotary members are business, professional, and community leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
Invite them to join us as we work to address today’s challenges, including illiteracy, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water, and environmental concerns.
Rotary Awareness starts with you & wearing your Rotary pin is a great place to start!
As part of our Celebration of 100 Years of Service Above Self the Club’s Rotary Foundation of Rotary International Annual Programs Fund (APF) and PolioPlus campaigns are taking a slightly different direction this year. For each member who moves from their current Paul Harris Fellow level of contributions to the next level they will have the opportunity of being thanked personally by RI President Gary Huang at our March 21st Gala Dinner.
Each time you make a contribution to The Rotary Foundation (TRF) (not our Club Foundation) your funds are recorded and when the accumulated amount reaches $US1,000 you are recognized by TRF with the Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) recognition pin and certificate, TRF’s way of saying “Thank You”.
In December each member was advised as to where they stand with their accumulated contributions to TRF. If you need an update please contact Jim Belton.
To ensure your PHF recognition item(s) are received on time please give Sandy Ronson your contribution information by January 30th.
Remember, if the ‘PHF’ request amount is out of the question may we suggest you consider making a US$100 [Cdn $ 114.00] contribution which would qualify you as a ‘sustaining member’.
With your contribution you may direct a portion of your gift to the Annual Programs Fund, which will be used for worldwide projects, and/or to the PolioPlus campaign.
One of the greatest honors we could bestow on President Gary Huang for his visit would be the opportunity to “Thank” 100 Paul Harris Fellows. Will you help us to Light Up Rotary?

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.
