Presidents Message
Message from President John Kenny Rotary
International The future of Rotary will not be
shaped at RI headquarters -- it will be shaped in
each and every Rotary club, because it is for
each of us -- as Rotarians -- to do what is
necessary to keep Rotary strong. But at the end
of the day, everything that we accomplish is done
through the strength of our clubs. And so each
club must have autonomy to serve where and how it
can serve best. We must also look beyond our own
home and our own community. We must look beyond
our own needs, and we must be aware that ours is
only one community, of one country, of the many
communities and countries in this world
Presidents Message I share with Past
Presidents of this club the knowledge that to be
your President is both a privilege and a
responsibility. Through our weekly lunches at
the beautiful Mississauga Golf Country Club
facility, and through our many events, we have a
unique opportunity to have an enormous amount of
fun while doing important work for our community
and the world. As you go through your days, I
encourage you to wear your Rotary pin with pride.
Use the pins symbol as an invitation to your
friends, co-workers, customers and family to
participate in Rotarys fun and good works. We
are always looking for good people,
representative of our broader community, to join
us and help make this great club thrive in the
future. David Shuter.
Club Goals
  • Rotary Club of Mississauga. Goals 2009 -10
  • We have some big goals as a club …. our
  • responsibility is to channel the energy those

    following targets
  • as a focus for the 2009 -10 year
  • Increase membership with a net increase of 2,
    through the acquisition of new members and
    through the retention of existing members. Where

    visible minority applicants.
  • Focus on maintaining and enhancing the quality of
    our weekly meetings.
  • Enhance the fellowship opportunities as supported
    by club members.
  • Continue an open dialogue within the club with
    respect to the potential future uses of our
    Clubs Foundations investments.

    activities relevant and effective.

In June 2007, the Board of Directors approved the
RI Strategic Plan 2007-10, which identifies seven
priorities Eradicate polio. Advance the
internal and external recognition and public
image of Rotary.  Increase Rotarys capacity to
provide service to others.  Expand membership
globally in both numbers and quality. Emphasize

Club History
The Rotary Club of Cooksville, later to become
the Rotary Club of Mississauga, was granted its
charter by Rotary International on April 23rd,
1954. The Club held its first regular meetings
in the old Cooksville United Church on Dundas
Street. As the populations of Cooksville and
Toronto Township grew, the Club changed its name
to The Rotary Club of Cooksville-Dixie, with its
meetings held in Applweood Village. Under this
name, the Club sponsored the Rotary Club of
Streetsville in 1961. In July 1960, the clubs
charter president, Archie Turner, was appointed
Governor of (what was then) District 707. Archie
was the first of five District Governors from our
Club. He was followed by Bob Watson (1973)
Duncan Lyall (1988), Bob Harriman (1989) and
Jerry Wijngaard (1999). It was in 1969 that RI
approved another name change and we became known
as The Rotary Club of Mississauga. Our record of
support to local and overseas communities is
impressive and varied. Rotarys special focus on
youth has led to the Clubs involvement in the
Youth Exchange Program, Rotary Youth Leadership
Awards (RYLA), Camp Enterprise and Adventures in
Citizenship. The Club sponsors the TL Kennedy
Interact Club, The Glen Forest Interact The
Mississauga Rotaract Club and the Mississauga
PROBUS Club. Interact This Rotary youth
program was launched by Rotary International in
1962 and the first club was established by the RC
of Melbourne Florida. Our first Interact Club
was chartered in the late 1990s. Interact clubs
provide opportunities for young people of
secondary school age to work together in a world
fellowship of service. The name derives from
international and Action. Rotaract
This youth program was created in 1968 and is
designed to promote responsible citizenship and
leadership in young persons 18-30 years of age.
The first Mississauga club was chartered in 1998.
There are some 7200 Rotaract clubs around the
world with approximately 165,000 ,members. These
Rotaract clubs emphasize the importance of
individual responsibility as the basis of
personal success and community involvement. Each
annually sponsors a project to promote high
ethical standards in business and in their
professional lives.

The Rotary Club of Mississauga Personal Security
Code of Good Practice
Policy Statement It is the responsibility of
every Rotarian to safeguard to the best of their
ability , the welfare of every person with whom
they come into contact during their activities as
a Rotarian. Special attention is to be given to
children, the elderly, disabled and other
vulnerable persons this includes the prevention
of physical, sexual or emotional abuse. Our
legal and moral obligations All Rotarians are
responsible for protecting the safety and
security of everyone we encounter in the
provision of service to our community. We have a
special obligation to those individuals with a
greater vulnerability due to age, physical or
mental limitations. Rotarians are obliged to
avoid doing anything that is likely to result in
harm to others, and to take reasonable
precautions to avoid placing others in a position
where harm could be done including physical and
emotional harm. Rotarians have an obligation to
intervene if they are aware of information, or
are in a position where they could reasonably be
expected to have information, about abuse or
anyone, through that persons involvement in any
Rotary activity or event. Guidelines This
policy shall apply to both projects and ongoing
Club activity. In the case of projects, the
project chairperson shall have overall
responsibility for ensuring that the policy is
observed in the planning and execution thereof.
Plan activities so as to minimize situations
where abuse may occur. Remember that records
checks from local police departments may not be
fully effective. They generally report
convictions for criminal offences and may not
include charges that did not result in a
conviction or may include ancient, unproven or
flippant allegations. Neither do they
necessarily disclose personal behaviours that may
put children and/or others at risk. Ensure that
everyone involved in an event or activity is
aware of the Clubs policy this includes all
Rotarians, Rotarians partners, Roteractors and
Interactors, all volunteers and any paid
staff. Two past presidents of the Club
(Moss/Dinnert) are designated jointly as the
Clubs Personal Security Officers. They will
have overall responsibility for this policy, its
review, updated, and for raising awareness. They
will have the responsibility for dealing with
allegations or disclosure and it is to these
officers that members should report their
concerns or address their questions. Section 8
of the District 7080 Code of Good Practice
contains guidelines on how to deal with the
disclosure or discovery of abuse. The document
also includes the District 7080 Abuse Protocol.
