Greeter this week:  Archie Skirving
From the tip of the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario  - Greetings, and welcome to Canada's first (and best) on- line Rotary Club,  the Rotary Club of Canada One.
As I write, the sunlight is sparkling on the water of Lake Huron, the sky is blue, and, it's a glorious summer day.
I've been a Rotarian since 1969, with my vocation as an Anglican priest assigning me to parishes in different Ontario cities, and, therefore several different Rotary Clubs.
And travelling, I've had the privilege of "making up" in several American and Canadian cities, as well as Barbados, and the famous Scottish cites of Edinburgh, and Glasgow  - always a friendly greeting and a warm welcome.
So now, in ways that my pen and ink background find amazing,  I welcome you to this week's meeting - as you join our Club in the warmth and comfort of your own home. I'm so glad you're here. Please - come again - our door is always open for you.
Inspirational Moment
May the poor find wealth,
Those weak with sorrow find joy.
May the forlorn find new hope,
Constant happiness and prosperity.
May the frightened cease to be afraid,
And those bound be free.
May the weak find power,
And may their hearts join in friendship.
Let’s hear from our Guests

“I like the format of your meeting. It is fun to have the singing of Oh Canada and regular items.”

“I think the classification presentation I watched was a great example of what should be done for a classification presentation. It was interesting and informative, Nicole started in Rotary with our club before moving on to e-club due to personal and work demands. She will do you proud, good luck and enjoy Rotary”.

Rotary Minute
September is New Generation Month
Every year, thousands of talented and dedicated young people, ages 12-30, have an incredible experience in a New Generations program.
As Rotaractors and Interactors, they serve in communities at home and abroad. Through Rotary Youth Exchange, they explore new cultures. And as Rotary Youth Leadership Awards participants, they learn skills that will help them succeed as future community leaders.

New Generations is Rotary’s fifth Avenue of Service. CLICK HERE if you like to know more about how you can get involved in New Generation?

Food for Thought
Submitted by Chris Langley
It's obvious that the advice Ashton gives in this movie has not been given to several generations of kids and so this needs to be heard by today's adults too. We need to teach this essential truth, no matter whose frayed nerves it hurts....
