PDG Kathi Dick, District Chair, District 7080 Peace Committee, arranged a visit to Conrad Grebel University College – home of Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) at the University of Waterloo. This program is the first of its kind in Canada and has been in operation for over 40 years.
Around 25 rotarians enjoyed a tour of the College and a complimentary lunch. Fred Martin, director of advancement of Conrad Grebel University College was our host. PACS department chair, Reina Neufeldt and some (MPACS) Master of Peace and Conflict Studies students were also the part,
This wasa great opportunity to visit this amazing institution, that is right here in our District, and to learn about the peace and conflict studies courses available.

Everyone was looking forward to coming together this year, to spend time with family, friends, and fellow rotarians, having to suspend this popular event during the pandemic. So it was decided to have a club social dinner on first of April. Club service chair Norm Latimer and our newest member Usha Sharma took the lead to arrange the event. Inviting guests and planning about menu, decorations, fun games, draws and prizes and above all keeping children entertained, kept every one active and busy besides the team leaders for quite some time.
Amongst the guests were the families and friend. Assistant DG Fionna Ferguson and Husband Rtn Graham were there to enjoy the evening.
We paid tributes to mother of Mama Latigo, who passed away in December Mama told us that her family is proud of the good life she lived and the good path she left for them.
We took this opportunity to felicitate a bright young student Harsh Patel, who helped to build our club website. In addition, we invited an ex Rotarian Renu Sodhi to become honorary member of RCBS.
It turned out to be a great dinner party: everyone enjoyed the food, fun and frolic.
An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.
Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger. We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future.
Rotary provides education, immunizations, birth kits, and mobile health clinics. Women are taught how to prevent mother-to-infant HIV transmission, how to breast-feed, and how to protect themselves and their children from disease.
Sunil and Usha had an opportunity to meet with Rotary International Immediate Past President Shekhar Mehta on February 13, 2023 during there visit to Calcutta, who also happened to be the keynote guest speaker in the District 7080’s Vocational Service Speaker Series Webinars.
This meeting provided a chance to discuss the role of vocational services in the Rotary world. There was a discourse on global collaboration and building vocational ties between Rotary clubs, districts, and various organizations at a global level.
The meeting can be looked at as an opportunity to create a relationship between Rotarians of Canada and India especially to share expertise through our networks or to participate in vocation-related Rotary friendship exchange programs.
