Welcome to Rotary District 7010

District 7010, located in Central and Northern-Eastern Ontario and North-Western Quebec, is one of 530 districts of Rotary International - the world’s oldest service organization.
Our ‘Family of Rotary’ is over 1,450 members strong who belong to one of 40 Rotary clubs, 7 Rotaract clubs and 9 Interact clubs – all serving their local communities as well as Rotary’s global projects and initiatives.
Our membership represents a wide cross-section of the communities we call home – young and not so young, male and female and a great range of vocations and interests.
Take time to explore District 7010 - "Rotary in motion". 
Given the challenges over the past year, in 2021 the Bridgenorth-Ennismore-Lakefield club (BEL) have come up with a Plan B and will be holding the "Pandemic Plunge" over the first seven days of February. 

The tradition of the BEL Rotary Polar Plunge will continue, but with a twist.  With respect to the county health regulations and with the concern for the health and safely of all, they will not be gathering by the shores of Chemong Lake.  Plungers will “plunge, frolic or splash” in a kiddie pool in their own yard, make a snow angel or pour a bucket of ice water over their body in an attempt to emulate the polar plunge.  Plungers will then take a video and send it to BEL Rotary to be included on their social media platforms.

 

As our clubs and members continue to deal with the many challenges associated with the ongoing pandemic, it is inspiring to read stories, such as one published by the BayToday in North Bay.
 
To quote President Kevin Smith, Rotary Club of North Bay-Nipissing, "I continue to be in awe of how much our members have accomplished and that is despite COVID. Congratulations Colin [Vickers] and thank you for all that you do with the Rotary Club of Nipissing. Is is certainly appreciated." President Kevin shared this story with the club members and DG Lynne Chant and in turn now with all our members. 

 

January is Vocational Service Month on the Rotary calendar. Vocational Service is at the heart of Rotary, which was founded on the classification system of membership. Business and professional life are the bedrock of Rotary, and Vocational Service is a major force in promoting honour, integrity, and trustworthiness in business.  Read more here.
