After 6 years of hosting their morning meetings at the Innisfil Recreation Complex (IRC) / YMCA the Rotary Club of Innisfil is moving to the Innisfil Library Lakeshore Branch at 967 Innisfil Beach Road in Alcona on Wednesday September 23rd. We have seen a lot of growth during our time at the IRC/YMCA and the opportunity to meet at the Library became available. The meetings will continue to start at 7:30am and go to 8:30am and we are looking forward to meeting at the Library!
In 2010 the Club was chartered and held their Gala at the IRC/YMCA. Not only did they celebrate their inaugural charter but also 100 years of Rotary in Canada. Interestingly enough, when the first Canadian Rotary Club was chartered in 1910 it was in Winnipeg and they too held their meetings at the local YMCA. We have enjoyed a wonderful six years with the location and the staff of the YMCA who set up our meeting room and supplied us with coffee every Wednesday morning.
We continue to have a strong relationship with the YMCA in Innisfil as we will continue to hold our annual Lights and Wishes event where we bring children and their families to the YMCA to meet with Santa, do arts and crafts, ride the Rotary Train and fundraise for the Strong Kids campaign. The Club also has their Rotary Garden, hosts the annual Family Fun Day, and will be building the Rotary Trail that is accessible from the IRC/YMCA location so you can see we will still have a strong relationship and presence with the community through the IRC and YMCA.
Everyone is welcome to join us at any of our meetings on Wednesday mornings at our new location at the Innisfil Library's Lakeshore Branch. We have great speakers and you can hear about all the great events and community services happening in Innisfil and globally. Come and check us out!
