The Rotary Club of Agincourt participated in the tree planting event in Markham today. We supplied and cooked burgers for all the people who planted trees.
We fed 1600 burgers to the crowd of 2,800. The largest single day planting
in Ontario, where they planted 6,000 -8,000 seedlings.
In this month’s issue of The Rotarian, “The Vindication of Vaccination” takes a step in that direction. I invite everyone to read it, absorb it, and retain it, and share it with your family members. The opposition to vaccination is based on fear of the unknown. So let’s be knowledgeable.
I was very proud to present ADG Dr. Raffy Chouljian a special recognition: The RI Vocational Service Leadership Award, for starting and developing Brush-a-Mania into a program that provides 30,000 school children with education, encouragement, and supplies for basic oral hygiene. It’s a Rotary program, and it makes a difference. http://brushamania.ca/

Thank you very much for the invitation to the Rotary Club of Agincourt concert. It was a complete success in my mind. Not only the entertainment and the program were spectacular you managed to bring Rotary to the forefront. And you really surprised me with your talent! Wow! My hats off to everyone involved with this project. A job well done.
District Governor Elect Michael Bell
Just a quick note to thank you again for a lovely evening last night. Jo-Ann and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the music selection and performances were outstanding. Santha has a fabulous voice and is such an accomplished, trained professional.
Congratulations again for organizing and hosting this successful fundraising event.
Congrats on a fantastic evening!!! Great reviews for the entertainment! Santha – your voice is beautiful and you are a great entertainer. Ivan – you are a great entertainer too and we all enjoyed your fun stuff!! All the other singers were really good too, so the evening was very easy to enjoy. I heard nothing but good comments from everyone around us. Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the evening!!!
Wen and William Wang
We would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to attend last night’s charity concert you and your team put together for Agincourt Rotary Club. It requires a lot of planning, work, time/effort for this full 2-hour entertainment.
What a great concert that me and William thoroughly enjoyed. I specially enjoyed Santha’s excellent performance. She has got a voice without border. She can sing practically any music with such a natural passion and put the listeners into the right mood whether it is theater music or blues. What surprises us the most is that she is a professional accountant, lecturer, MC…..How can one person have so many talents and raising two children at the same time.
One of the highlights of last night of course is the piece you sang – “What a Wonderful World” originally sang by Louis Armstrong and Country Road by John Denver. What a great job you did. I clapped my hands so hard until they hurt.
Thank you again. You should be proud of what you have achieved for the Rotary and Lighting up the world

Yesterday, I attended my 1st caucus meeting with the Premier designate Kathleen Wynne. We had an engaging, energetic, open discussion with Kathleen. The entire caucus is behind our new leader. I know that our new Premier has begun reaching out to the various partners from different sectors. She has a very competent transitional team (ie. Francis Lankin, David Crombie, Don Drummond, etc) supporting her. I am very excited and keen to work under the leadership of Kathleen Wynne.
Tonight, Councillor Mike Delgrande, Trustee Sam Sotiropoulos and I hosted a meeting with Paul Godfrey. Paul did a clear, informative presentation about the modernization of casinos. He provided numerous examples across Ontario. Paul was accessible and answered all questions asked by the audience. We had a healthy discussion on casinos. I want to thank MIke, Sam, members of the riding association (Ed, Sandy, Ron, Hilla) along with riding executive (Al, Walter, Lai, Maureen, Eden) and my staff (Jo-anne, Kory and Abdullah) for organizing tonight community event. I also want to recognized Sunny Ho (our MC) for tonight’s event. He did a great job! I was very pleased the meeting was attended by only Scarborough Agincourt residents and everyone got away from the presentation knowing more about the casino issues and how Paul Godfrey and the OLG’s plan to modernize this adult entertaining industry.
