Speaker - Past District Governor Kathi Dick and Timothy Whitehead
PDG Kathi and Timothy presented us with a very detailed and informative session on the District 7080 Peace Committee. Starting with the Rotary Areas of Focus, they went into the Rotary Values, touching on the Rotary Peace Centers, the University of Waterloo Peace Program and Scholarships, and the Rotarian Action Group for Peace.
Peace Builder Clubs are a Rotarian movement creating energy and momentum for peaceful conflict resolution around the world. Clubs can form a Peace Committee with 2 or more members, integrate Peace into a Club Service Project, submit a prospective candidate for Rotary Peace Fellowship or join the Rotarian Action Group for Peace.
Within the next 5 years, District 7080 hopes to become a Peacebuilder District with every club a Peacebuilder club. Thank you 
PDG Kathi and Timothy for your most educational presentation.
