About the Toronto-Leaside Rotary Club

The Leaside Rotary Club meets on Mondays at 12 Noon for lunch at 12:30.  Each meeting is part fellowship, with Rotary traditions such as Happy Bucks.  Another regular feature is a speaker who will address the Club.

Speakers present entertaining or informational talks of about 30 minutes.  The topics are as varied as they are interesting.

If you would like to speak to our Club, or know someone that we should contact about speaking, please get in touch and tell us:

  • Who the speaker might be
  • Why he/she might be of interest to our group
  • How we might contact him/her/you
