Club Stories
On August 16th, 2017 TTRC inducted Neil Walford into the club.
 
Neil was born in Montreal to a French-Canadian mother and an English-Canadian father.  He moved to the Toronto area as a baby and has lived here ever since. After high school, Neil attended McMaster University and studied liberal arts, eventually earning an honours degree in Comparative Literature and Philosophy.  While at McMaster, he was active in the University Quiz Bowl circuit, winning a Canadian undergraduate championship and going on to place 8th in the North American Inter-Collegiate championship.

Please join us April 29. 2017 for the Rotary Poker Walk for HIV/AIDS

75% of the funds raised by your team go to a registered charity of your choice.  This year the residual funds raised will support the People With AIDS Foundation - Toronto.

We have raised over $350,000 in our previous seven walks and want to continue these great results.  Check with your team leader from last year or volunteer to lead this year.  Click on the banner above to get started! We look forward to seeing you there.


ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis.  They are the leader in humanitarian shelter provisions and their tents are customized for all types of climate, terrain and diverse family sizes and dynamics.  

ShelterBox's aim is to provide what the people need, not what they think they require.  To achieve this, they work with local Rotary clubs and local aid organizations to determine the needed items for the people, in the climate and terrain that they would find the most benefit from.

As the ShelterBox team works to find the most needed items, light is one of them and the newest addition to their boxes is the LuminAid light.  These lights are weightless and solar powered where one charge can last up to 16 hours in a low setting and 8 hours in it's highest setting.  

Thank you Stephanie for spreading the word and we'll be sure to do the same.  
Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.
