Dear club members,
 
As you know, the COVID-19 situation is fluid. Earlier, public health officials have asked Canadians to limit gatherings in an effort to slow down the spread of the disease. Practice Social Distance – person to person contact of any kind should be stopped. Whenever possible, maintain two meters between yourself and others to avoid contamination.
 
As leaders in Etobicoke, we think it's important to lead by example. So, in keeping with the best advice of the experts, out of an abundance of caution and with due concern for some of our members, it was decided to postpone all in-person club events that have been scheduled until the end of April.  This includes our twice a month lunch meetings, committee meetings, the 90th Anniversary Celebration, the Rethink Plastics Event and Hands on Projects.

Rotary Club Hockey Drive has donated over 50 tonnes of new and gently used hockey equipment to remote First Nations. 

Second Annual Food Drive - was completed on Sunday the 6th of October – 141 food bags were collected with a value of approximately $2900 plus three cheques 1)50,2)40,3)$40 , the money will be sent to the Salvation Army Food Bank. The Food collected was distributed to the North and South Salvation Army Locations.
About a 35% return an increase from last year of 23%. DUCA was our sponsor and provided us with 400 bags.
Thank you for all who participated, this year we had Toronto Police Service, CPLC Community Police Liaison Committee, YIPI Youth In Policing Initiative, the Auxiliary Police (Samantha created the video, Thank You).
