The annual Rotary District 7070 Conference is on October 24 - 26, 2014 at The Westin Prince Hotel in Toronto.  The District Governor, Brian Thompson is a James Bond aficionado and so "Shaken and Stirred" will have all sorts of James Bond activities interwoven in the weekend's highlights.
 
Do you know what happened on September 28, 1972?  (Clue:  It was a memorable sports moment in Canadian history!).  It was the incredible goal by Paul Henderson in the final Canada-Soviet hockey game that won the Summit Series for us!  Paul Henderson is one of the Plenary speakers at the District Conference.  Paul is not just a much remembered hockey player, he is also a humanitarian and a man who is willing to share his life story on Saturday, October 25th.
 
The second Plenary speaker is Gabrielle Scrimshaw, a very accomplished young woman who is an inspiring and engaging speaker.  She has impressed those in the world of finance and has provided valued input to larger corporations and organizations.  Coming from a challenged setting as an aboriginal girl in Northern Saskatchewan, she was selected as one of Toronto's twenty-five up and coming city leaders through Civic Action's DiverseCity Fellowship in 2011.
 
The third Plenary speaker is Brad Howard who has been nominated to serve on the Rotary International Board of Directors for the 2015 - 2017 term.  He hails from California and has enjoyed working in the field of training, International Service and the Rotary Foundation.  He will share his experiences about his international service with humour and grace on Sunday morning.
