Meetings of the District Council

November, 2022 —
This palpable excitement that greets every Fall was even more noticeable with the return of in person events for RTOERO District 27. The pictures in this edition of our newsletter, as well as those posted to our District 27 website capture this energy.

See the warm smiles of those who came out to reconnect at the New Members’ Reception in September and the 80+ Reception in October. In the spirit of “reopening”, plans are in place for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in November, as well as December’s Christmas Celebration to be conducted in-person. Interested participants may have already seen the news blasts that were sent out. There really is the sense of “First Day” jitters as we return to “getting together” to work and play.

What a District 27 team! While my personal circumstances prevented me from being present, our executive did an outstanding job! Special thanks is extended to Danielle Guertin, Dawn Paxton, Roger Régimbal, Lorraine Smith-Champagne, Monique Vandenbosch and Bob McGahey who fabulously organized and hosted our events. In addition, we greatly appreciate the work of Roger Lalonde and the Communications team who are tasked with engaging District 27 members by ensuring that sessions are well-publicized and capturing these lifelong photo memories in our online and traditional communications.

As the AGM approaches, we look forward to add new members to the District 27 executive and council. Should you have an interest in joining these 2 fun-loving and dynamic groups, please do not hesitate to contact us. District council meetings are convened 4 or 5 times a year and all members of District 27 are welcome to attend. While the new term for the officers begins in January 2023, interested members can reach out to us at any point. We are always grateful for volunteers throughout the year.

Continue to keep an eye out for online blasts from RTOERO featuring digital events and workshop announcements, which will continue to be personally delivered to you by email. If you have missed a session – don’t worry. Most have been recorded and can be found on the RTOERO website. There is also the anticipation that all websites for the 51 Districts will migrate to a standardized template. While we expect that the move forward will enhance efficiencies and experience some hiccups, a primary goal in making the change is in meeting high standards of security for our communication teams in producing the webpages and our member users.

As we head into the winter, your enthusiasm and energy will help us plan successful events and activities in the next several months. Let us know if you have some fresh ideas for us to try out. I look forward to hear from YOU!
