A Call to Action: Rotary's Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup

To mark Earth Day in April 2021, Rotary District 7070 issued a challenge to all its clubs to participate in the Rotary Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup during the week of April 17 - 24, 2021. Rotary Toronto West continued the project this year by focusing cleanup efforts in Tom Riley Park.  With the assistance of members of the Etobicoke Collegiate Institute Interact Club, Rotarians worked to remove trash throughout the park.

Courtney Doldron: Rotary Is Refocusing On Core Values: The Rotary International presidential theme for this year is "Rotary Opens Opportunities".  In recognizing that opportunities might not always be open to all, this theme has inspired a renewed emphasis on some core values: integrity, service, leadership, fellowship and diversity, with the intention of creating inclusion and equity in all that we do.
 
Days for Girls is an international charity that promotes better health and education for girls around the world through the provision of multiuse hygiene kits.  Maria Pollieri, Toronto team leader for the Toronto Chapter of Days for Girls, provides an introduction of how this sewing party will help girls stay in school and live a better life.
