--Message from Shekhar Mehta, RI President and the 2021-22 RI Board of Directors--
To ensure that the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion are ingrained in everything we do, the RI Board of Directors, guided by the DEI Task Force, has strengthened our commitment to DEI and is taking action in response to the survey findings. Our DEI Code of Conduct What we say and how we behave matter. Although free expression is important, we must take responsibility for how our words and actions may affect others. The Board has approved a new DEI Code of Conduct to help Rotary members create and maintain an environment that is collaborative, positive, and healthy for everyone. 
 
--Note from past DG David--
Over last the few months we have seen many shocking news updates of the Ukraine invasion. Recently the Rotary E Club of Innovation shared a live update from Oksana Tjupa (Charter President of Rotary Club of Kyiv International).  Please find a recording of the update from Oksana Tjupa on the situation in Ukraine at present and the amazing work being done by Rotarians and Rotaractors in Ukraine

Many “Thanks” to Jim Swan for uploading these videos.  

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.
