DG October Message

Together with other members of our District Leadership team, I attended the Zones 28 & 32 “Learning to Lead” Symposium, held in Toronto during the last weekend of September.  At this event, I met a number of Rotarian leaders from around our Zones, which encompass Canada and much of the North-Eastern United States, who have some form of disability.  This did not impair their ability to be leaders or active Rotarians. 
This month’s District Governor’s message has been written by Dave Humphries, our District 7040 Public Image, Communications and Outreach Chair and someone living with a disability.

Indigenous Film - 

a talk by Dr Rebecca Pelky / une conférence de la Dre Rebecca Pelky

Again this year we observe Canada's National Day for Truth and Reconciliation September 30th which honours the lost children and survivors of residential schools, their families and communities; and US Indigenous Peoples Day October 10th which celebrates and honors Indigenous Americans and commemorates their histories and cultures.
Cette année encore, nous célébrons la Journée nationale de la vérité et de la réconciliation du Canada, le 30 septembre, qui rend hommage aux enfants perdus et aux survivants des pensionnats, à leurs familles et à leurs communautés ; et la Journée des peuples autochtones des États-Unis, le 10 octobre, qui célèbre et honore les Américains autochtones et commémore leurs histoires et leurs cultures.

What inspired me to become and stay a Rotarian

PDG Fay Campbell, Rotary Club of Orleans, was recently interviewed on Rogers from Ottawa about why she became a Rotarian, and why she stayed in Rotary. You'll see pictures of her travels towards the end of the interview which you can see at
