Rotary means two things to me – fellowship and service. If these are important to you, join us for breakfast at Montgomery’s Inn most Thursday mornings at 7:30 a.m. You’ll get a warm welcome.

After a very busy career as a lawyer downtown, I wanted to get to know folks in Etobicoke better and also give back to the community. Walking past Montgomery’s Inn one morning in 2014, I saw the Rotary sign, and was hooked. I got immediately involved with the Community Services Committee, and later became President. It was an eye-opener to see the needs in the west Toronto community and how Rotary has a unique opportunity to address them and make a big impact. Rotary has also played a key role internationally in eliminating polio; we are very close to stamping it out, as we did with smallpox.

When you walk into a Rotary meeting, you will be greeted enthusiastically. Rotary will become like your second family – it is for me.
