Dear 2022-23 club officers,As you begin your term as a club officer, we are happy to be able to support you with updated courses in the Learning Center.
If you’ve already completed your role-based courses in preparation for your term, please take some time to review them, as courses have been updated.

A New York attorney representing .a wealthy are collector called to speak to his client. "Saul, I have some good news and I have some bad news."
The art collector replied, "You know, I've had an awful day, so let's hear the good news first."
The lawyer said, "Well, I met with your wife today, and she informed me that she invested $500 in two very nice pictures. She thinks they will bring somewhere between $15 and $20 million, and I think she could be right."
Saul replied enthusiastically, "Holy cow! Well done! My wife is a brilliant business women, isn't she? You've just made my day. Now, I know I can handle the bad news. What is it?"

Rotary Minute:
R Clay shared some recent decisions by Rotary International:
Updates from the Council on Legislation In April, representatives to the 2022 Council on Legislation voted overwhelmingly to add “equity and inclusion” to the Rotary International bylaws, affirming our organization’s continuing effort to be inclusive of all cultures, experiences, and identities and to reflect the communities we serve.

The council meets every three years to review and vote on changes to RI’s constitutional documents. At this year’s council, representatives also approved a dues increase and a club administration pilot that will allow Rotary to experiment with different governance structures. A Report of Action has been sent to clubs, which have until 1 August to submit statements of opposition to adopted measures. Revised governance documents are available online, and you can also review voting results and find more information about the council process.
Imagine Rotary Tour in Toronto July 5
Some videos and pictures were shared with club of the new RI President Jennifer Jones Imagine Rotary cross Canada tour in Toronto on July 5. Jennifer is the first women president of RI and a Canadian.
President Emily shared a bit about the new 2022 / 23 RI theme, 'Imagine Rotary' and distributed the new theme pin to members.

This email is being sent at the request of District 7070 Governor Iosif Ciosa.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Rotary Food Packing event on July 5 in partnership with Kids Against Hunger (Canada) as part of the Imagine Rotary Canada Tour.  We appreciated your smiles (we saw them under the masks!) and enthusiasm as you stood for hours filling bags and then boxes with nutritious meals. Extra thanks to everyone who brought out friends, family, and potential members to join in our afternoon of service.

We know how disappointing it was that Rotary International President Jennifer Jones was not able to be with us as planned.

She was also very disappointed not to be able to serve with us and has created this special video message. Please share it with anyone you know who attended, but who did not register. We'd like President Jennifer's message to reach everyone who did not get the opportunity to meet her.

Thank you again for your enthusiastic participation in the Rotary Food Packing event on July 5th. Do check out the tour photo album and join us in thanking everyone who documented this incredible day of Rotary service and fellowship.
