Welcome to October! The leaves are changing colours and the gardens showing some signs of decline. What a magnificent country we live in where we are able to experience the changing seasons!
I am sharing some Reflections of my first 100 days as your District Governor. Hard to believe that amount of time has already passed!! One of the most interesting experiences in those 100 days has been the opportunity to enjoy the Official visit to your Club. What a wonderful time George and I are having as we continue our journey through the District and meet our fellow Rotarians. You have been so welcoming!
Firstly - our District is made up of an amazing group of Rotarians committed to the work of improving the lives in our Local and Global Communities. Both George and I have commented on how busy each club is and the difference you are making in your world. Thank you for all you do for Rotary! Secondly - I feel that Rotary is one of the best venues to bring together the differences in people and create a common ground to serve others and to have fun. What an opportunity Rotary provides for us to build friendships and a sense of community together! Thirdly - this extraordinary organization was built on the dedication and commitment of our founders, and we can carry that vision forward as we create the plans for the future of our clubs.  
Here is summary information on Rotary-UN Day, November 7, 2015, including the Canada session on Friday and a Friendship Dinner Cruise on Saturday evening. 

For those in eastern Canada, we already have two buses going, if you do not want to drive or fly on your own - contact Doug Vincent (contact info in above picture) .

Africa reaches important polio milestone

Tuesday marked a year since the continent of Africa has reported a new case of polio caused by the wild poliovirus. This is the longest the continent has ever gone without a case of polio and a critical step on the path toward a polio-free Africa. But continued support is critical before Africa can be certified polio-free.
