Doors/Bar will open at 5:00pm. Plated Dinner is at 6:00pm. 
Our In Person meeting fee is $50/person (with dinner) or $20/person (without dinner) and payment options include: E-Transfer to Sandy in advance (preferred) OR  Cash (on arrival) OR Credit Card (on arrival but least desirable)  Note:  Anyone that still has pre-Covid lunch tickets valued at $25 can use them as payment as well. For those unable to attend in person we will be making the meeting available using our normal Monday meeting Zoom link below. As Covid is still a risk, we recommend the wearing of a mask when not at your table.

--Note from Randy Harden--
The Rotary Club of London is participating in the 2022-23 Rotary Youth Exchange Program. We are in need of a host family for our inbound student from Switzerland Nanda Jurt. We require 3 families (Sept -Dec, Jan -April, April- mid July). I am happy to report that Club member Ian Davies and family will host Nanda Sep.-Dec. and Harry Joosten and family will host Nanda Jan-April. We are actively looking for a host family to host Nanda in April-mid July. Hosting an exchange student is an incredibly rewarding opportunity for all family members. Please contact Randy Harden (YEO) randy.harden@gmail.com if you, or if you know someone who would like to host our inbound student. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about this important Rotary program.

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.
