The Virtual Rotary East Coast "Right in Your Own" Kitchen Party - Saturday, May 30, 2020 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. 
Any minute now the www.rotaryeastcoastkitchenparty.ca website will be open and ready for you and your fun loving bubble to register. (Keep trying. We still had some things to workout at press time, but it should be good to go soon.)
 
You’ll be able to log in to the Zoom webcast so you, other Rotarians, Rotary Friends, and anyone who loves to party in a high energy fun loving way will be able to connect.
 
Newfoundlander Peter Garland will guide us around the kitchen introducing us to our guests and sharing some east Coast stories. Shane Cook and the Woodchippers – Kyle Waymouth, Joe Phillips and Emily Flack will be with us for the evening.  J.P. Cormier, winner of 13 East Coast Music Awards, Tommy Leadbeater, Cape Breton Tenor, and Ron James, East Coast Stand Up Comic and Satirists will be dropping into the virtual kitchen to add to the fun.

You can order food from a sponsoring restaurant, or from your favourite. It’ll all help the local economy.

It’s all free thanks to our sponsors. But you and your friends will have a chance to support Rotary and all the good work Rotary is doing.

Put May 30, 2020 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm on your calendar for the first ever Rotary East Coast “Right in Your Own’ Kitchen Party.

May is Rotary Youth Services Month
                                                                                                                         

Each year, Rotary connects thousands of young people to a global network of friendshipservice, and action. As Rotaractors and Interactors, they make a difference in communities at home and abroad. Through the Rotary Youth Exchange, they explore new cultures.  Through the Adventure in Citizenship Award and the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, RYLA, (Seminar for Tomorrow’s Leaders in our District) participants learn skills that will help them succeed as community leaders. Each year over 500,000 young people participate in Rotary Youth Service programs worldwide.
 
Our Club is very involved in Youth Service. We are the sponsor for the Western University and Fanshawe College Rotaract clubs and co-sponsor of the London Interact Club. This year we sent 2 Youth Exchange students abroad and are hosting a student, Majo. Normally we send a student to the Adventures in Citizenship program in Ottawa and 5 students to our District’s Seminar for Tomorrow’s Leaders (RYLA) but unfortunately both programs have been cancelled this year due to COVID-19.
 
Rotarians Helping Rotarians
The Rotary Satellite Club of London Centennial would like to offer up help to fellow London Rotarians during the COVID-19 crisis.  If you are unable or uncomfortable leaving your home, but you need groceries or other necessities, a Satellite Club member is here to help!  Please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdIVWQQHpkQxzTOpUE1Q7P4-JIYGWNX2GxkyhPKn5I5LVth9w/viewform?fbclid=IwAR06aDc-elULfoVFHPsrC9ZUFc26mO9afyKG1UYiQEbJOkq4s_j9w-nd5ZU   and someone from the Satellite Club will follow up with a phone call to arrange a delivery time and confirm any details regarding your order.

The District Conference Team is working with their speakers, presenters and some volunteer techies on how to deliver the BEST EVER Conference in this new world we are all coming to terms with. This will be through a mix of live interaction, live streaming and the provision of off line information that clubs and club members can view at club meetings or from the comfort of their own home. The event will be a slimmed down version of what we had originally
developed and will be held one week early on Saturday morning June 13th so as not to clash with the Virtual RI Convention. SAVE THE DATE NOW for this our ground breaking very first Virtual District 6330 Conference. They will  publish registration details to this FUN FREE event later this month.
