On June  26, one leg of the Canada Games Torch Relay took place in Niagara Falls. There were about 150 participants in the relay, some of whom were runners, some supporters and 28 Rotarians and partners from both the Niagara Falls and the Niagara Falls Sunrise clubs.
The relay takes place over six weekends in Niagara in each of the 12 communities that make up the region. The day before, it had taken place in Thorold where our very own district governor Anne Bermingham and incoming DG Lisa Bishop carried the torch in the actual relay!

Rotary has been very visible in the 12 communities where the relays are taking place. Various clubs will also be participating during the Games as volunteers.

It was mentioned several times during the presentations before and after the relay how important Rotary has been in making the Games a success. 

It’s good to give back to the community, it’s fun for us to be involved as Rotarians and it gives Rotary a very visible presence over a long period time. Everyone wins during these games.
