ROTARY – People of Action

We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and through that, we're able to get things done in our community. 

It's up to YOU.............Join leaders in our community

is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

FIRST The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

THIRD The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

FOURTH The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of

business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

  5. Promote recognition and respect for all occupations which are useful to society

  6. Offer my vocational talents: to provide opportunities for young people, to work for the relief of the special needs of others, and to improve the quality of life in my community

  7. Honour the trust that Rotary and fellow Rotarians provide and not do anything that will bring disfavour or reflect adversely on Rotary or fellow Rotarians

  8. Not seek from a fellow Rotarian a privilege or advantage not normally accorded others in a business or professional relationship



of things we think, say and do:

  1. Is it the truth

  2. Is it fair to all concerned?

  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Introduced by Kim Boatman, we heard an excellent and challenging presentation by Franco Scanga who took us through a Workshop to lead us to a “ FEARLESS LEADERSHIP MINDSET “ .

Franco is the Manager, Technology Assets Information Technology Services, Ontario Tech University

Franco Scanga volunteered to help at the Registration Hub for the University of Ontario Institute of Technology's (UOIT) Homecoming 2013, where he greeted and registered students, staff and alumni.

As an undergraduate student at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, Franco benefited greatly from the time and effort volunteers put into the various activities and events he participated in. “I look back on those events and realize that each experience has taught me something important,” he said. “I am glad to be able to pay that benefit forward. By volunteering at an event, I hope to contribute in some small way to the enrichment of a student’s experience at UOIT.”

When you start working at UOIT, you become part of a unique community. Volunteering takes that one step further. “It adds another dimension of positive engagement for staff to connect with the campus community,” he said.

The boundaries we set for ourselves can provide a safe and comfortable place. Yet, sometimes there are events in life that present us with an opportunity to re-evaluate those boundaries. The opportunities call us to into the unknown and uncomfortable.

On Saturday, April 30, 2016 the Talk For A Cure event ( kicked off in what would be a truly memorable experience. What began as a "spark" in my mind in 2014, became a reality that encompassed an entire community. Franco’s father was facing cancer for a second time and he wanted to support him by undertaking a "fearless challenge" fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society. So he set 2 clear goals; 1)To raise $16K for the charity, and 2) to break the Guinness World Record for Most Speeches in 24 hours in the process.

Why speeches? The fear of public speaking ranks #1 in the minds of the many. Far above the fear of death and disease, comes the fear of standing (and sharing ideas)in front of a crowd. The idea was to challenge this notion and to "fight the fear of Cancer by facing the fear of public speaking" with a charitable and historic event. This event had definitely challenged my comfortable limits. Public speaking was something he had not engaged in formally since elementary school and he was about to attempt a world record doing just that. Unknown? Check. Uncomfortable? Check.

Delivering 23 different speeches, to 23 different audiences, in 23 different locations in less than 12 hours meant facing a daunting challenge. Thanks to the outstanding organization and diligence of the volunteer teams, we had executed the schedule quite flawlessly. Delivering 2 speeches every 30 minutes across 163 kilometers was a challenge to say the least, but the volunteer teams helped to make it look easy! 

Goal #1: Achieved! My goal of raising $16K for the Canadian Cancer Society was surpassed and we were able to donate $17,800!

Almost 1 year to the day, goal #2 was confirmed. 

Last year , he received the official certificate from Guinness for having set the new World Record for Most Speeches in 24 hours. It was a remarkable experience he will not soon forget, but more importantly than that he is extremely excited about supporting his father, aunt and many others touched by Cancer. Their courage inspired him to undertake this "impossible" challenge. This event demonstrated that people from all walks of life can come together for a great cause. This event truly stretched Franco well beyond his own (perceived) boundaries and taught him a great deal about facing challenges as an underdog- far too many to list in this post.

He continues to challenge everyone who reads this to dig down deep to determine your cause worth fighting for, one that will stretch the boundaries you have set for yourself.

Turning Fear into Force: Practical Tips For Courageous Personal Growth

Franco Scanga's mission is to provide as many people as he can with actionable steps on leading a fearless lifestyle towards their life goals, no matter what they may be. He is also currently writing a book with actionable tips for leading a fearless lifestyle every day of the year.

Here is what Franco said:

We all naturally fear new experiences which is why most supposed Leaders fail. They fail because they lead or operate superficially. We need to FOCUS on our main fears, EXPLORE as a means of taking ownership, ASK for ideas from those around us and RISE to meet our particular challenges. VIA CHANGE AND INNOVATION. Start small but stay committed long term.

Sandy McDowell thanked Franco.
