DisCon 2022 Save the Date (2).png
 
          Co-Chairs Peter Assaff and Ashley Butt have been hard at work planning an awesome weekend of fun and inspiration, and they can't wait to see you there! 
 
Details: 13-14 May 2022
Where: Online, but Together! 
 
Yes, that's right! This year we are trying something different with our virtual conference: watch parties! 
The conference will be hosted virtually, but we want you to plan watch parties for areas (if multiple clubs) or within your own club. These can take place in a conference room or restaurant where you normally hold your meetings, or if a smaller group, in someone's home! 
Even if you are travelling or working away during the conference, you can attend that way as well!
 
District Conferences are one of the most important way for our membership to learn and get inspired, and we want the opportunity for the most Rotarians to be able to attend. 
 
Recommended tech for the best possible viewing and interacting experience: 

In a Big Room:  In a Smaller Room:

 

Projector + Screen TV with streaming capabilities

Speakers Internet

Microphone Webcam

Webcam Microphone

Internet

 
For your watch parties, you will need a tech setup, and are welcome to have a sponsor for food and tech, if in a big group, or can have a potluck at someone's home if that works best for you! 
 
We have a DYNAMITE program coming for you!
 
Friday night is Social Sociable! Moncton native and former Rotarian Marshall Button will be hosting the evening in character as "Lucien," with trivia about the Atlantic Region, and lots of ways for your watch party to get involved! 
 
Saturday is the meat of the weekend, a keynote speech from Jameelah (Jam) Gamble on owning your voice and using it to stand up for what you believe in as Rotarians. Then, we bring it back to our new district and learn what WE are passionate about! Let's celebrate our shared successes, and get some awesome new ideas.
 
This last part is where you come in! We want to know what innovative projects our district is doing around the 7 areas of focus. If you want to submit a project from your club, please fill in the form below and tell us everything! The committee will choose one project for each area from around the district to give a short presentation at the conference, so that we can be inspired right here at home! 
 
 
Entries are due on 31 March 2022. 
 
More program details will be coming in the next few weeks, along with watch party registration. Please discuss with your club or clubs in your area how you are going to organize it (we recommend a watch party chair), because time is coming up faster than it seems. 
 
We will also note that the conference is still accepting sponsors, so if you have a company or work for a company who you think would be interested in being a part of this historic conference and having their support seen all over the Atlantic Region, please have them reach out to Ashley and Peter at: 
rotary.ashley7820@gmail.com (yes, she is fully aware this email will be irrelevant soon....)
or 
peterassaff@gmail.com

We hope to see a record number of Rotarians at this first conference, so we hope you are as excited as we are! Stay tuned for more details, and send in your project entries!

Limited time only: Save on the 2022 Rotary International Convention

In response to questions and concerns raised by members worldwide, we are pleased to announce that the Rotary International Board of Directors has confirmed that the 2022 Rotary International Convention will be an in-person event 4-8 June in Houston, Texas, USA. We are excited to offer a special registration rate of US$495 through 28 February. 
 
In addition, the Board has determined that all participants, including Rotary International preconvention participants, must either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) OR provide a negative result from a COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before their arrival at the convention. Check convention.rotary.org for updates as we continue to determine what safety protocols are necessary, based on the current CDC recommendations for safe gatherings.   
Don’t delay, because this special registration offer expires 28 February. You’ll have the opportunity to cancel for a full refund, minus a $50 per person administration fee, until 30 April.

To recognize the contributions to the “End Polio Campaign” by Rotarian Pam Harrison, who recently passed away, the Foundation Committees of Districts 7810 and 7820, under the guidance of Zone Polio Coordinator PDG Stella Roy, established the D7815 Polio Plus Society in memory of Pam Harrison. Those who commit to contributing $100 US per year until Polio is eradicated will become charter members of the newly formed “District 7815 Polio Plus Society”. You may contribute by going to the 7820 Website. https://rotary7820.com/    Click on the Polio Plus Society button on the right side of the web page.

We wish to make a Toast to Paul Harris and his colleagues and the organization they founded, Rotary International.
 
Rotary International brings together more than 35000 Rotary Clubs that create a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
 
We can point to examples such as Polio Plus where Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $10 billion to the effort.
 
To conclude this toast, I offer a quote from Paul Harris shortly after RI’s founding: Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves. Words that have proven to be so prophetic today!
 
Please join me in a toast to Rotary International:
TO ROTARY INTERNATIONAL!

The Fredericton North Rotary Club is one of four Rotary clubs in Fredericton, the provincial capital of New Brunswick, Canada. It was chartered in October 1977 and currently has a membership of some 50 professional men and women from a variety of occupations.

An active and important participant in the strong community life of the city, the club is involved in many public service activities both local and international. For example, the club supports youth literacy, combats hunger, helps disadvantaged youth and the elderly, and eradicates polio.

Although we are serious in our endeavours, we are also determined to have fun at the same time. If you are interested in learning more about us and joining the more than 1.2 million Rotarians around the world who are committed to the Rotary motto "Service Above Self", then check out this website and contact our executive secretary, Terry MacDonald at fnrc6339@gmail.com or phone 506-206-7810.

The club meets Thursdays at 12 noon at the Fredericton Inn, 1315 Regent St., Fredericton. Tel: 506-455-1430.
