Great new Rotary Video about "Doing Good in the World" and how we can help. It takes about 1 minute to cover some of the things we are focusing on. Watch this video, and then please share on your page to help promote Rotary.

Our 2014-15 District Governor, Patsy Marshall, will visit our club at the July 9 meeting at Doug and Brenda McNeil's home. Patsy's bio follows below.

A member of the Guelph Trillium Rotary Club, Patsy has a distinguished record of service in Rotary. As a passionate, dedicated Rotarian, Patsy has been involved in a variety of club and district committees, has served on her club's Board of Directors, and was President of her club in 2000/2001. During her year as President, her club chartered the Rotary Club of Guelph South, which has become a vibrant club. Patsy was an Assistant Governor with 7080, in 2010 and 2011, taking on a variety of assignments . She continues to be actively involved as a member of the District Training Committee, especially with PETS I and II , and Club Leadership Training.  She is a member of the District Foundation Committee, the District Conference Planning Committee, and is an engaged, certified instructor with the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI). Patsy speaks at Camp Enterprise, and at the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) program, as an avid supporter of young adults. She has encouraged other clubs to support Youth Services.

Patsy is a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and is a member of the Paul Harris Society. In addition, Patsy has been involved with numerous community boards and committees, as a leader and as a member, throughout her lifetime. In 2012, she received the Woman of Distinction Award for Training and Education, from the YW/YMCA of Guelph. She has also received the J. David Stewart Award from Conestoga College, in 2007, for excellence in teaching and leadership.

Married to Jim, owner of Vac-Man, they live in Guelph and have two grown children; Peter and Heather, a daughter-in-law Natalie and a son-in-law Matt . In addition to family outings and getting together with friends, international travelling and gardening are passions for Jim and Patsy.

As a farm girl, Patsy was educated at Medway High School in Arva, and then attended the University of Guelph (B.A.Sc. 1974 and a M.Sc. in 1976). Her career has been in health care and education, and her vocational classification is Adult Education. She served in senior leadership roles in respiratory medicine for 8 years and was Director of Education for Homewood Health Centre (a psychiatric hospital) for 8 years. Patsy has owned her own training and development company, Train on Track, for over 20 years and focuses on training soft/people skills to develop the human side of business. She continues to offer leadership and management training programs to several Top Fortune 500 companies. In addition, Patsy continues to teach with Conestoga College, Sheridan College, the University of Guelph, Brock University,  and the University of Waterloo. Patsy's distinguished career has provided her with unique leadership opportunities as she has developed colleagues and coached many high performing teams.

Patsy is excited about the new challenge ahead as District Governor for 7080, supported by fellow Rotarians, family and friends. She hopes that during her year, her District will continue to be a resource to clubs, encouraging Rotarians in District 7080 to reflect on what Rotary means to them and their contributions to the world of Rotary as they Light Up Rotary!

On June 21st, 2014, the Burlington boating community will come together to support Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation with a special "Sail Past" of the new #Burlington Pier.  So far we have approximately 30 boats participating, including our own #Rotarian's Bob Wercholoz and Henry Pratt raising funds for Able Sail.

The event kicks off at 11:30am with a $5 BBQ at LaSalle Marina, Boats depart the Marina at 12:30pm, and then will sail past the Burlington Pier around 1pm.  Great opportunity for pictures, and to cheer on the boaters from our new pier. Pledge forms are available to help support.  We encourage all #Rotary members to come out on the day of for the BBQ, and enjoy the event from the Pier.
