Did you know that District 7010 is hosting a Million Dollar Dinner in support of Our Rotary Foundation?

What??  - A Million Dollar Dinner is a celebration event designed to recognize all Major Donors and Bequest Society Members whose outright gifts or commitments are $10,000 or greater. This can include members of the Paul Harris Society 10 year commitment. These gifts/commitments will be included if they are made between 1 July 2012 and 7 May 2015. Our goal is to show that D7010 is committed to our Rotary Foundation by raising a minimum $1 Million USD in that time period.

When and Where – all of those who make that commitment are invited to a celebration dinner. A world known Rotary Leader has been invited to be the keynote speaker. It will be held on the 7 May 2015 at the Holiday Inn in Barrie.

 

. Visit the D7010 Million Dollar Dinner website for more information.

The next Rotary Leadership Institute program session is on November 2nd, being held in Barrie.

 

This program is a way of taking Rotarians from any level of experience and give them more in depth Rotary knowledge and information.

Training provided in this program helps prepare each Rotarian for the opportunity to assume a leadership role that they can define and determine for themselves. It could be within their own club or at the District level.

Perhaps they want to be a better committee chair or move on to club President. They might want to advance to a District Committee Chair or Assistant Governor or perhaps District Governor.  It could even be just for general knowledge or to be a quiet mentor to other Rotarians.

Please visit the Rotary Leadership Institute page for more information.
