At the open forum meeting of the Rotary Club of London on Monday evening November 28th the members received the report on the Member Survey and were then presented with three options for meeting structure to start in 2023. The members engaged in active discussion on the various options and were able to indicate their preference.

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.
