Oakville, Ont. May 29, 2012 – The three Oakville Rotary Clubs co-presented this year’s Oakville Education Awards at the annual awards dinner held Monday, May 28th, 2012 at Otello’s Banquet Hall.  Forty graduating high school students received scholarships and bursaries in support of their post-secondary education from the three local service clubs.    Rotary’s Annual Education Awards are dedicated to assisting local high school students in their endeavours to attain post-secondary education.  A total of 40 bursaries and scholarships were distributed to Oakville’s graduating students from both the Halton Public and Catholic District School Boards.

Wayne Snyder, President of the Rotary Club of Oakville (RCO), host club of this year’s event, was pleased to announce that the 2012 awards was a record setting year.

“Forty awards is a record for the three clubs.  In order to attain such heights, all three clubs have had success at fundraising through special events. A few fundraisers that help support our youth initiatives include the Annual RCO Golf Event & Million Dollar Hole-In-One Competition, the Oakville Charity Dragon Boat Festival by the Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar and the Oakville Awards for Business Excellence, an initiative of the Rotary Club of Oakville West.  Giving back to the community and particularly the deserving and talented youth here tonight would not be possible without our many sponsors and public support of Rotary special events,” said Snyder. 

“On behalf of all three clubs, we are delighted to assist Oakville students in attaining their educational pursuits and becoming the future leaders of our community,” he added. 

Upcoming Events
Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
