This would be an excellent time to assess your club's Vocations.
  • Conduct vocation-related activities and programs.
  • How can your members share information on their vocations?
  • Create a "yellow pages" or a club directory so members can do business with each other.
  • Share your creative ideas for promoting Vocational Service with clubs, district and the Governor.

Celebrating Rotary’s Centenary in Kingston
La version française est ci-dessous
April 1, 1921 is the official date that the Rotary Club of Kingston was registered by Rotary International, which makes 2021 the 100th year of Rotary in Kingston. There are now four Rotary clubs in Kingston: Kingston (1921), Kingston-Frontenac (1965), Cataraqui-Kingston (1985) and Kingston Waterfront (2015) and two Rotaract clubs: Queen’s Rotaract (1985) and Kingston Rotaract (2020). All told, there are almost 200 members of the Rotary family here.
Rotarians from all clubs began planning for this celebration three years ago with a goal to celebrate our past service and offer anniversary contributions to our community. Then Covid-19 happened. Since Rotarians fully understand how to pivot and address community needs, we redirected our energy to assisting people most impacted by the lockdown. Since April, 2020, we have delivered healthy food to vulnerable children and their families and made masks for frontline workers and others who need them.

Ask your Club President or Foundation Chair to share the form they received over the holidays or check here .  You can choose any program or area of focus you desire.  There is also an FAQ information sheet they have which you may ask for to clarify any questions you have.
All Recognition Points will be credited during this Rotary year in March or April, allowing for processing your enrollment.

DEI - Votre Parcours / Your Journey

English version is below
Ce ne sont pas tous les clubs ou même tous les rotariens qui croient qu’un énoncé proactif antiracisme soit une nécessité en ce moment.  Malgré cela, le Rotary International a émit un énoncé [1] affirmant l’engagement du Rotary envers l’antiracisme.  Les clubs peuvent utiliser cet énoncé comme source d’inspiration pour des discussions, ou un modèle pour développer leur propre énoncé reflétant leur communauté locale.  
Plusieurs rotariens pourraient penser qu’ils ne sont pas biaisés, mais nous avons tous des partis pris à l’intérieur de nous. Le Harvard Implicit Bias project [2] (en anglais) offre des tests gratuits en ligne afin de découvrir vos partis pris cachés.   Que faire lorsqu’un test scientifique révèle que vous avez un certain parti pris envers un groupe en particulier ?
