Yesterday was our annual turnover event.  This is where our outgoing President passes on the responsibility to our new President.
Our outgoing President, Noeline Paul, did a simply stellar job during a very challenging year.  In spite of Covid, our club held regular Zoom meetings (with interesting speakers), held our first ever Richmond Hill Rotary Bottle and Food Drive, launched the Womens’ Initiative, including the first ever Richmond Hill Women of Inspiration & Leadership Award, distributed funds to numerous charities in need, planted trees in the Oak Ridges Moraine, held a virtual Wine Tasting fundraiser, and gained several new members.  Noeline was recognized with the prestigious Paul Harris Award for her hard work.  Thank you Noeline!
Our new president is Raj Sriskandarajah.  He laid out a plan for some fundraising that would work either if the world re-opens, or even the unlikely scenario that it is delayed.
Also honoured with a Paul Harris Awarded were Jason Cherniak and Peter Szoke. 
The “Exceptional Service and Dedication” Award was presented to three deserving Rotarians, Paul Vyrostko, Glen Waugh and David Tate.  Congratulations to all!
We look forward to the year ahead!
