Today marked the installation of Tom McLeod as President 2021-2022. Assistant Governor Ryan Bridge read the oath of office reminding Tom of the confidence the club members have in him and his responsibilities to the club as President. Tom, in turn, pledged to do his best. Then Tom installed his Board for 2021-2022.  He reviewed the exceptional work from the previous year—Dine to Donate, the draw for Margaret’s Place, Socks and Skivvies, equipment to Six Nations Polytechnic, the project with the Rotary Club of Nairobi Maderaka.
Rotary International’s President for 2021-2022, Shekhar Mehta has selected “Serve to Change Lives” as the theme for the year. Tom reflected that we in DVSRC are at our best when we engage with our community to serve others. He invoked the R.I. vision statement: “Together we see a World where People unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves.”

Tom stated that this year we will work to expand our footprint in the life of Dundas. Everyone is encouraged to join a committee.  The plan for club meetings in the short term will be to continue with Zoom and supplement with in person where possible. And when possible the meetings will return to Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club. In the longer term, we will explore the possibility of hybrid meetings using technology supported by our District 7090.
