OTTAWA, ON – This afternoon, Dufferin-Caledon MP David Tilson rose in the House of Commons to congratulate the Orangeville Rotary Club on 75 years of dedicated service to the community. Mr. Tilson said the following:
Mr. Speaker, I’m pleased to stand in the House today to recognize the 75th anniversary of the Orangeville Rotary Club, who will be celebrating this remarkable milestone on April 19, 2012.
It’s a tremendous achievement for a Club which has contributed so much to our community. Successful projects and events such as Rotary Park, the Skateboard Park, Ribfest, and the annual Make Orangeville Shine can be attributed to all of the outstanding volunteers belonging to this Club, including: Keith Hunter, Peter Parkinson, John Russell, Steve Cavell, Cory Jones, and Sally Slumskie. We extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for their tireless work to improve life in our community.
On behalf of the residents of Dufferin-Caledon, I sincerely commend this Club on always living up to Rotary’s founding principles of ‘Service above Self’ and wish it another 75 years of exceptional community service.
