A fun, elegant night was had by all in attendance at the Grand Opening of the Club’s Museum Exhibit, entitled “A Century of Service Above Self: Rotary Club of Windsor (1918)". The exhibit will run until the end of the year at the Chimczuk Museum.
Thanks to curator Megan Meloche and the Centennial History Committee, an incredible depiction of the Club’s milestones throughout the years transforms 1300 sq. feet into a truly unbelievable display, capturing the important international and local community projects our Club has been involved in over the past hundred years. Highlights of the exhibit include:
An Iron Lung on display: In the 1980’s, eradicating polio became the main focus of Rotary International, and the Polio Plus campaign was established. Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) provided generous and continued support to these efforts. No device is more associated with polio than the tank respirator, better known as the iron lung.  
A Heart Walker: An assistive device that allows some children with disabilities to be mobile, Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) had Heart Walkers built and distributed with the help of local mould makers. 
- Hundreds of banners showcased from Rotary members from around the world.
For Kids: Children visitors will be able to design their own Rotary Banner, among other fun activities.
Citizens of Windsor-Essex County will learn how important Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) was to the development of key local initiatives like the John McGivney Children’s Centre, Maryvale Adolescent and Family Services and The Safety Village. The exhibit also touches upon the Club’s efforts during WWII as well as popular local festivals such as Children’s Fest and Art in the Park.
