The Rotary Club of Richmond Hill is very happy to announce a $2,500 donation to the Richmond Hill Food Bank.
 
As our local community continues to cope with the after effects of Covid-19, with so very many workers who have been laid off or let go, the demand on food banks continue to grow.  At the same time, many residents/organizations who have actively supported the Richmond Hill Food Bank, are themselves now struggling.
 
(Ms.) Lee Reynolds, General Manager, Richmond Hill Community Food Bank said, “We are most grateful for the donation made to our food bank. Funds will be used to purchase produce for the many families in the Richmond Hill and the Thornhill community.”
 
The Rotary Club of Richmond Hill would like to sincerely thank all of you, who have supported our Beer Festival, Galas, and other fund raising activities, for allowing us to provide this assistance to the Richmond Hill Food Bank.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Cam Smith.  He was the beloved husband of Yvonne (nee Hughes) of 64 years.  Cam was a member of the Richmond Hill Rotary Club for 55 Years, who exemplified the Rotary motto of “Service above Self”.
 
He was well known in the community for his work with the Boy Scouts, the Arena Board, the Library Board, the United Way and was Chair of the Actifest Festival (Ontario Senior Games) when it was held in Richmond Hill.  Cam was the long-time Manager for Bank of Nova Scotia's Richmond Hill branch at Yonge and Lorne Streets.  After his retirement, he continued working part-time for Magna International.
 
As a Rotarian, Cam was a Past President, a long term treasurer and Board member. He participated fully in most club projects and
along with his wife Yvonne, administered the Rotary scholarship program for local high schools for many years. He was recently
received, the first ever, life achievement award from the Richmond Hill Club for outstanding service to Rotary.
 
During the first Richmond Hill Rotary Club meeting following the death of Cam, the Club held a moment of silence in his memory.
When the silence ended, members of the Club spontaneously paid tribute to Cam.  Some members recalled how Cam always kept his cool, no matter the situation, others remarked on his love of sports, and others on his genuine interest in them and their families. Still others remembered that Cam was always involved in Club Activities, always ready to help and always there when needed Cam will be sadly missed.
Last week, Ron Scott, Director of Pre-Sales Support at Alithya, www.alithya.com, a Management Consulting firm specializing in Digital Transformation, was our guest speaker.  Ron joined us from Atlanta, via Zoom, to give us a great presentation on some of the more advanced capabilities of Zoom meeting software. 
 
Ron showed us many useful capabilities of Zoom.  One capability allows you to show presentation slides effectively.  That really does advance what we are able to achieve in our weekly Rotary meetings.  Another feature, how to have the software automatically touch up the way you appear on-line, is something that is not really something that I need nor took note of.  (Mind you there are some more vain club members who I suspect did take note!)
 
Ron thank you very much for an interesting and educational presentation!
