Stephen Mocon – Rotary Australia
Stephen Mocon was given an awesome opportunity, through Rotaract, to visit Australia last year. He went on a round trip around the world and met different Rotaract clubs and also Rotary Clubs. Their Rotaract Club is like a boot camp that is run by Rotary and quite different from ours here. He went to Newcastle and talked with the Rotaract club there. He also talked with the Rotary Club who explained that their fundraising is through BBQ’s. He went to the Zoo, the Rain Forest and Byron’s Bay.
Stephen spent different times with different Rotaractors who talked about the way they raise funds, mostly through parties and again, BBQ’s. They usually make $5,000 to $10,000 from a BBQ. Stephen, with others, participated in the Rotaract amazing race which was a lot of fun.
What did Stephen get out of it? He learned that Rotaract flourishes when it’s created, you get to mingle with Rotaract clubs, especially in the amazing race. No two Rotary Clubs are the same, both members and clubs are diverse.
Rotary needs to be more involved in Rotaract; the members need guidance, they need to know how to get things done.

New Vision for Brampton
Rod Rice is the chairman of Regenerations; they serve breakfast to the homeless. He is also a representative of the New Brampton Committee Task Force. Their mission is to present a new vision of Brampton to the entire world. The time has come and long overdue that Brampton is entitled to the infrastructure services. We have almost 600.000 people in population but we have no infrastructure. Money must be spent to provide the infrastructure that the University is going to need. We have to do whatever possible to make Brampton a dynamic City and as citizens, we have to get the message out that we will be the City of the future; we want to be proud to call Brampton home. We need to be connected in every way and convey the message to the persons in power that the time has come to make Brampton a great city. Let’s make this happen!
Central Peel Secondary School - United Nations
The Interact Club at Central Peel has 35-40 members in the second year of the club. This year they expanded their horizons and went to an International Conference in Montreal. SSUNS (Secondary Schools’ United Nations Symposium) was a three-day conference, which was run professionally by students from McGill University. They learned from this conference that you don’t have everything spoon-fed, there will be set backs. This was a very good experience and very competitive.
Central Peel qualified as a small delegation and came out with two awards. They won the award in climate change and the Nellie McClung award. There were larger delegations from the States and it is amazing that Central Peel came out with two awards.
Plans for the future include the Appleby Conference and SSUNS Conference again next year. They will also work on marketing the club towards younger members to have a diverse amount of students among the grades. A special thank you to the Rotary Club of Brampton for their sponsorship to go to Montreal.
These Interact Students can be seen as future diplomats and ambassadors who will make a big difference in the World, as they get older.
