Club Stories

Thank you TTRC members and guests for joining us this evening. Tonight, we are celebrating a year of great efforts, perseverance, change and most importantly, you!

We are only able to achieve everything above because we work together and make our individual contributions to the club, which ripples to the district, and to RI to then reach all ends of the earth.

Thank you!

After six years of dedicated service, Toronto Twilight will spend the 2019/2020 Rotary year slowly transitioning from their commitment to the Fort York Food Bank. But transition does not mean abandonment, and Toronto Twilight will continue to attend FYFB over the next few months in order to ensure that the transitioning club receives full support. And our club couldn't be happier with who we are transitioning to.
 
The Rotaract Club of Toronto Danforth brings a youthful energy wherever they go and their enthusiasm was on full display this morning as they led the serving of 116 plates of food for the clientele. Together with Twilight and guests from Travelers Insurance, Maliha, Faizah, and Fariha, chopped, fried, boiled, roasted, and baked, veggies, rice, pasta, hot-dogs, breakfast burritos, and potatoes. We couldn't be more excited to hand over the reigns of this necessary service to a club that displays such a passion for community work.
 
 
Our first meeting of the Rotary Year was fun and engaging. Melissa Robinson and Chris Hawke (featured) talked to us about the upcoming Argos Youth Day which I hope to see you all participate in. On another note, members present voted to use $139 of the funds generated to support RADAR139.
 
Our next meeting we will have a number of AIDS organizations come in to discuss their work and next year’s Pokerwalk. Andrew will be presenting a check to Ower from Latinos Positivos for $502.50 for funds that we raised at the 2019 Pokerwalk.
Members of the Rotary Club of Toronto Twilight and Toronto Beaches came together on Canada Day Weekend to volunteer at the Toronto Ribfest to help raise money for their clubs charitable causes and for Rotary initiatives across District 7070. Spending hours at a time in the sun, they asked the public for donations to Rotary and finished off their last shift with beer and ribs - the only suitable finish to Ribfest.
At our final meeting of the 2017/2018 Rotary year, TTRC had the pleasure of inducting our newest member into the club - Tess Widdifield.
 
Tess is the Rotary and Community Fundraising Manager at ShelterBox Canada, working to promote the Project Partnership and community fundraising campaigns in Canada. She started her journey into the non-profit world at Brescia University College at Western University, earning a degree in international community development. When she isn’t working to promote the mission of ShelterBox she can be found snuggling her three legged cat, doing something creative or cheering for the Raptors.
On April 11th, TTRC had the pleasure of welcoming our newest member into the club - Guillermo Nafarrate.
 
Guillermo Nafarrate graduated from UPF Barcelona school of management with a masters in finance and investments. He holds a professional financial planner designation attained through the Canadian securities institute. A self employed professional, Guillermo is the owner of Titan Capital, a wealth management advisory, investment firm and insurance brokerage.
 
Guillermo plays ice hockey and is a die hard maple leaf fan. He plays the guitar and is a music fanatic. Guillermo loves to travel, his next destination is Egypt to visit the pyramids and experience the culture. An adrenaline junkie, Guillermo skydives, has run with the bulls and piloted aircrafts.
On October 25th, TTRC inducted its newest member Michael Ash with the help of Rotary District 7070 Governor Neil Phillips.
 
 
Michael Ash is a Digital Strategist at Red Lion Canada, a boutique ad firm recently shortlisted for Digital Agency of the Year award, and with clients ranging from auto to medical.
