Local Councillor, Kristyn Wong-Tam, addressed Forest Hill members today. Councillor Wong-Tam was re-elected to Ward 27 on October 27, 2014. Today, Councillor Wong-Tam spoke to members about the 2025 World Expo, and the idea of putting in a bid to bring the World Fair to Toronto. Winning the bid would allow for 40 million visitors into the city, increase GDP as well as increase jobs. Leaders and Civil members across Canada have been approached about the idea and are in favour of bringing the Expo to Toronto.
Rotarian, Milo Vassallo, continues to raise money for a village in Peru and asks for our support. Last year, $2000 was raised, of which, $500 was donated from the Club.
We had many guests today, including members from the Toronto Rotary Club, members of a Rotary club in Brazil, and members of the Downtown Toronto Residents Assocation.
