As the President of the newly chartered Rotary Club of Innisfil (come on to a meeting, your invited! Wednesdays at 7:30am at the YMCA Rec Complex in Innisfil! www.NotYourGrandfathersRotary.com ), I was appointed from our members to come to Peterborough to represent our club at this annual event.
Starting September 23 to 26 select members from the 44 District clubs with aproximately 1750 members came to be part and listen to special guest speakers including Dr. Tom Jackson, Dr. Chris Furgal and Zoe Caron speak. In addition, wonderful fellowship, food, information and project sharing of both local and international social and community projects took place.
We are truly fortunate in Canada, yet for example, we face our own pressing climate and social challanges including in the north and the Inuit peoples' traditions being lost in escalated time and the ripple effect of modern industrializations negative effect on the Arctic and its inhabitants.
To quote a line from the wise Dr. Tom Jackson (actor, speaker, musician) as a bit of solice 'we don't have to change the whole world, just our own.'
