London Rotary Club
We meet In Person
Mondays at 11:59 AM
RBC Place London
300 York Street
London, ON N6B 1P8
Vocational Service is one of Rotary’s Five Avenues of Service.
Vocational Service calls every Rotarian to: 
•         aspire to high ethical standards in their  occupation;
 •         recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations, and; 
•         contribute their vocational talents to the problems and needs of society.
When professionals join a Rotary club, they do so as a representative of their classification – their particular business or profession.
Rotarians have the dual responsibility of representing their vocation within the club and exemplifying the ideals of Rotary within the workplace.
During January, Rotarians are encouraged to focus on this important avenue of Rotary service.
Here are the details:
Time:  The Zoom meeting will “open” at 11:30 am for those that want to socialize before the meeting which starts at 12:00 pm.

The Interact Club of London is selling Cookie Mix in a jar, the cost is $12 for the cookie jar and $10 for hot chocolate. The money will go to a local charity that supports women and children. All the money raised will be much appreciated!  Please contact Jennifer Roy to arrange your purchase of these treasures!
From John E---Greetings all – Couple of pictures to show improvements on the soccer stadium have continued well after we began mixing cement for the top rails and balustrades. I really like the newly added coloring and bus shelter type team benches! It is good to see an example of the food dryer that Bruce and Bob constructed and how it is being replicated. I am very pleased that our January 2018 trip has generated such support for the young people of the school which contains all of the computers we provided.

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.
