Monthly Magazine 

September 2020
Editor Nash Azam
Welcome to another issue of our monthly magazine!  COVID-19 has not stopped us as we are people of actions, we continued engagement with our members by conducting regular Mondays meetings, Board and committees meetings through Zoom online facility.
Lifetime Achievement Award, Rotarian Rick Sulker was awarded the Richmond Hill Rotary Lifetime Achievement Award.  This very special award is bestowed in recognition of many years of active service in the Club evidenced by consistent attendance, support, involvement and participation in Club events and activities along with taking on leadership roles. Further Rick has exemplified our Rotary motto “SERVICE ABOVE SELF” and has been a role model for all of us to aspire to. 
Rick joined in the Richmond Hill Rotary Club in August 1983 (37 years).  Highlight of his activities in Rotary - TV Auction, both on-air and behind the scenes, and almost every other fundraiser.  He was always involved in and supported all events.

Upcoming Community Event
Virtual Terry Fox Run - September 20th 2020 - 40 years of Hope
With Covid-19 situation. It is still a fundraiser for cancer research. Participants will still register on our website under Richmond Hill Run Site, get up on Sunday September 20th, lace up your running shoes and head out the door. But instead of driving to our beautiful permanent Mill Pond location you will walk, run, bike, hike, wheel a route of your choosing in your own neighborhood, safely. Our virtual Run mirrors the same passion for Terry, his mission, and your community as every one of the past 39 Runs. The difference: we will unite in spirit, not in person.
