New member induction: Welcome George Mikhael. Dr. Om Chandra on the Canadian World Education Fund and Ron Arkell - Rajbir (Roger) Mann International Service Award recipient.
The Club welcomed new member George Mikhael. 
Dr. Om Chandra spoke about the important work he and his team do for the Canadian World Education Fund (CWEF). CWEF’s goal is to provide financial assistance to widowed families, for the education of children in need. Since the program's inception in 1996, the number of students helped rose from 8 to 1351. The UN has recognized June 23rd officially as International Widow's Day, an important step in recognizing the magnitude of this issue.
Also on the agenda was the presentation of the 2018 Rajbir (Roger) Mann International Service Award, recognizing Ron Arkell, “who demonstrates energetic and enthusiastic service internationally”. This award honours past Rotary Club of LaSalle Centennial member Roger Mann who was involved with over twenty-three water and sanitation projects in India, Africa, and Mexico.
