22-Apr-24 Earth Day

On Earth Day, April 22, Rotarians Brian Dingle, Chris Darrah, and Jane Neil were at Lincoln Elementary School to help deliver the Gaia Project Sustainability Kits. The Gaia Project team trains a teacher, provides 25 books for their class, and expects the teacher will train other teachers/classes in the school. Lincoln Elementary has 150 students and 9 classes. A District Grant helped fund this project. We are proud to sponsor this initiative.

Business Meeting - 21-Mar-24

At our business meeting this week we recognized Norman Neil as a Paul Harris Fellow for his contribution to the Foundation. He was joined by other Paul Harris Fellows from our club.
At the 1917 Rotary International convention, outgoing Rotary president Arch Klumph proposed setting up an endowment “for the purpose of doing good in the world.” That one idea, and an initial contribution of $26.50, set in motion a powerful force that has transformed millions of lives around the globe.
The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of US$1,000 to The Rotary Foundation. Rotary established the recognition to encourage and show appreciation for substantial contributions to the Foundation.

Welcome to Our Newest Members!

President Ian Ferguson welcomes new members Stephanie St. John Cleghorn, Chris Darrah and Peter Rogers.
Welcome to Our Newest Members! 2024-01-08 04:00:00Z 0


Oromocto Rotary Club has taken on a project with the Rotary e-Club of Ukraine to rebuild a school that was bombed in the Ukraine. As we support Oromocto Rotary Club in that endeavour, it will be helpful to learn more about Rotary efforts in the Ukraine.
On December 16, the e-club is holding a Ukrainian Christmas Project Fair. Our Rotary International Leadership Team will join the Ukraine Rotary District 2232 Coordination Committee as they introduce us to the Rotary team and the priorities they have established for supporting and rebuilding Ukraine. There will be a plenary session followed by three breakout sessions: Equipment & Supplies: Help for People; and Recovery, Rehabilitation. Find a Partner for Your Project is a separate session that follows.
This will be an early morning session for us starting at 5:45 am in the morning and ending at 9:00 am AT (will confirm times closer to the event). It would be helpful to have at least 2 of us in each breakout session.
If you are interested in attending, please follow their link to register; fill out their profile form and share your picture and information with the team. Please contact me to let me know so we can coordinate which breakout room each of us will be in. Let me know if you would be interested in getting together with some Rotarians and Toastmasters on Zoom to discuss other ways we may support Oromocto Rotary in their project in the Ukraine.

First District Conference of District 7815

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


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....)

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!

A Toast to Paul Harris

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:

End Polio Now Tulip Campaign

Our Rotary District 7810 is again offering boxes of 25 tulip bulbs for sale to raise funds to support Rotary International in its goal to End Polio Now. Boxes of tulip bulbs are available to purchase for $25 each. Of this, $14 goes to fund the End Polio Now campaign.
Members may place orders immediately by emailing Terry MacDonald at: tmacd200@gmail.com. We are setting the deadline for orders from our club for Friday, July 17. The district will accept orders up to July 31, but they are limited in that they only have 1500 boxes for the entire district, so we want to get our order in early to ensure delivery.
Rotarians may order boxes to sell if they wish. The district has promotional material to help you with this. Or you may wish to purchase boxes for your personal use or donation. The district goal is to sell 1,500 boxes of End Polio Now Tulip bulbs, resulting in a profit of $21,000 ($14 per box).
All orders must be paid in full by July 31. Payment is to be made to our club. The club will place one order with the district on July 17 and pay for this order by July 31. The tulip bulbs will be delivered to the club in late September.
Should you have any questions please email me at: brianallandingle@gmail.com, or call me at: 506-471-1575. We will be reminding all members of this at our weekly meetings from now to July 16.
Thank you very much for supporting Rotary International in its efforts to End Polio Now.

Canadian Rotarian's in Zones 28 and 32

Rotary Zones 28/32
Hello Canadian Rotarians in Zones 28 and 32,

I'm excited to share with you today an exceptional opportunity for your Rotaractors and young Rotarians. Please help us share and promote this program so all eligible Rotaractors and Rotarians can become aware, sign up and take advantage of the bursaries and volunteer opportunities.

The Rotary family has continued to innovate and create new solutions for our communities' most pressing challenges as we navigate difficult and unusual times. The global COVID-19 pandemic has created economic and social hurdles for all sectors of society. Post-secondary students and recent graduates are particularly vulnerable. The pandemic affects their studies, ability to graduate, finances and career opportunities. It affects youth in Rotary and their ability to donate their time and support our organization in carrying out our initiatives in the community.

In response, our zone, along with Rotaract Canada Multidistrict Information Organization, are partnering with the Canadian Federal Government in a program called Canada Student Service Grant (CSSG). Rotaract Canada is part of a select group of Canadian non-profits to participate in the initiative. Rotaractors and Rotarians currently in post-secondary, recently graduated or returning to school in the fall will be eligible for a grant of up to $5,000 towards education by volunteering in new and existing Rotary and Rotaract initiatives happening throughout the summer.

Participating Rotaractors and Rotarians can take advantage of the many volunteer opportunities with Rotaract Canada, including the 28 committee positions available, or existing local projects and activities in their own clubs. There is also an exciting opportunity for Rotarians and Rotaractors to connect, build stronger relationships by interviewing and writing stories on behalf of seniors, celebrate their lives and achievements and share their wisdom and knowledge through the creation of an intergenerational capsule of community stories.

This one-of-a-kind partnership between government, Rotary, and Rotaract is being led by a team of innovators including Rotaract Canada leadership and Dean Rohrs, past Rotary International vice president. Having just recently chartered as the newest MDIO in our region, Rotaract Canada is already showing the value of national-level Rotaract organization and setting new precedents for innovative partnerships for the benefit of Rotaractors and the communities they serve.

You can learn more at rotaractcanada.org/cssg. You can also download additional information and resources at these links:

We count on you to share this opportunity with your district and help those students access those grants so support their education.

The 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention

Membership Minute
June 2020
Ideas for strengthening membership
The 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention 
Rotary’s first online convention will be a great way to connect with members around the world. Now More Than Ever, Rotary Connects the World: The 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention is happening 20-26 June. You’ll find breakout sessions on new ways to engage members and be inspired by internationally known speakers during the general sessions. 

Several breakout sessions focus on engaging and attracting members. Plan to attend one or all of these: 

•    Using Virtual Tools to Engage Members, on 22 June
•    Grow Rotary Through New Club Types, on 23 June
•    Digital Trends of 2021: Using Tech to Engage Millennials, on 25 June
•    Engage Young Families With Service and Alternative Meetings, on 26 June

See the full list of breakout sessions and look again often for updates. We hope to see you online! 
How to stay connected when you can’t meet in person  
Whether it’s a club meeting, awards ceremony, or new member induction, you can still connect with and recognize your members even when meeting in person isn’t possible. 

Watch our recent webinar, Connect With the (Online) Rotary World, and learn how to set up online meetings, use social media to engage with members, and maintain fun traditions virtually. We asked for questions before the session and compiled a list of the ones asked most often, along with resources. You can download the FAQ from the Learning Center. (Signing in to My Rotary is required.) Or search for the webinar title. 

If you’re planning a virtual induction ceremony, have the new member induction video from RI President Mark Daniel Maloney ready to show. Look at the Meeting Online topic in the Learning Center for more ideas on how to connect virtually. 
A reminder about adding new members 
As club leaders prepare to complete their terms, remember that members added on or before 30 June will count as starting during the current Rotary year, 2019-20. Members added with 1 July effective dates will count toward the new Rotary year, 2020-21. Write to us at membershipdevelopment@rotary.org if you have questions. 
Share your story on Rotary Showcase
Rotary clubs around the world are responding to the coronavirus pandemic to help keep their communities safe and healthy. We know this because more than 1,000 service projects related to COVID-19 have been added to Rotary Showcase. Be inspired, connect with others, and add your own project.
Strengthening Rotary clubs during difficult times 
Jenny Stotts, membership chair of District 6690, suggests using resilience to strengthen Rotary clubs while we are coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. From helping members maintain realistic and positive perspectives to planning service projects that help people feel a sense of purpose, read how Stotts fosters resilience among members to create stronger clubs.
How to host a virtual changeover ceremony
Changeover ceremonies are important events for clubs. It’s a chance to acknowledge the great work your club accomplished during the past Rotary year, welcome new leaders, and generate excitement for the coming year. Learn how you can host this important event online. Don’t miss out on having one!

Community rallies

....to support families of Nashwaaksis Memorial
The global pandemic might have closed New Brunswick schools, but the community around Fredericton's Nashwaaksis Elementary has stepped up to make sure the students who counted on meals provided at the school don't go hungry.
Before schools were closed March 13th, students in need were able to grab a bowl of cereal, some fresh fruit or a slice of toastwhen they got to class. And, once a week, the Fredericton North Rotary Club offered a hot breakfast. The Fredericton Community Kitchen provided lunch to those who needed it.
When the school closed, principal Alex Yaychuk took a poll of families to see if they were still looking for help.
"They said they'd like some help. So since the first week schools have been closed, we've been delivering food to those families,' he said.
Every Friday, Yaychuk and his vice-principal and MLA Stephen Horseman collect bags of groceries from the Fredericton Community Kitchen and they make the deliveries to 19 homes in the community.
Once other community partners heard about the efforts, they began making donations as well, he said.
"It's really snowballed into a beautiful community outreach effort for families."
Hundreds of dollars have been donated, he said. The Fredericton North Rotary Club has also been pitching in, running a weekly food drive from a member's garage. Instant Imprints, a business on Brookside Drive, donated $500 for grocery gift cards, and similar donation came in from the Atlantic Superstore on the city's north side, he said.
 Some employees from the City of Fredericton 911 dispatch centre collected money and then filled gift bags with pens, pencils, crayons, books, and craft supplies. And members of the Douglas Baptist Church have donated food and school supplies, said Yakchuk.
"Every week, these families, who most days struggle to put food on the table for their children, are now being supplied with all kinds of healthy foods, snacks, fruits, and bread. There's canned goods, and boxed goods. We've had egg donations, cheese donations. Just about everything you'd put on your grocery list," he said. 
"It's been one of the few bright spots over the course of the last few months."

Fredericton North Rotary Club Meetings

The COVID-19 coronavirus is affecting every aspect of our lives in real time, and this puts Rotarians in an unfamiliar place. As People of Action, we are most comfortable when we are fully engaged – moving freely, meeting openly, and offering helping hands, but this is no longer the norm.  
Everyone, stay IN and stay SAFE!
