Rotaract Niagara Induction - January 18th, 2018
We are excited to announce that the Rotaract
Club of Niagara became an official club this past
Thursday, pins and all. The induction meeting was
held at Rose City Kids in Welland, where club
executives and members received the honorary bell,
gavel, and banner. Rotaract exists under the umbrella
of the Rotary club, and consists of young professionals
and students that wish to make a difference both
locally and globally. There are currently over 9,500
Rotaract clubs in 177 countries worldwide, and
Rotaract Niagara is excited to become a part of this
growing number.
The Niagara club was chartered on October 26th, 2017,
where the members established Naasson Zarrusho as their president, as well as their vision and mission
statements and club motto, service over self. The club is looking forward to getting
actively involved in the community in order to meet pressing needs that exist both
locally and internationally.
The new club is both excited and grateful for all of the support and
enthusiasm that it received at the induction. Rotarians from sponsoring clubs
(Fonthill, St. Catharine’s, and Niagara Falls Sunrise clubs) participated, as well as
current District Governor Reg Madison, and many others. Rose City Kids (RCK)
hosted the induction, and core founders and leaders of RCK gave a tour of their
facilities, including the newly renovated RCK Youth Centre. Rotaract Niagara hopes
to begin a partnership with Rose City Kids, and has been inspired by the difference
they have made in the community and in the lives of young kids in Welland. The
club is currently working on their very first initiative, which is to fundraise and
participate in the Coldest Night of the Year, happening February 24th, 2018.
Anyone who is interest in getting involved can contact the club through email

* On Thursday January 18th, 2018, Nasson Zarrusho, as well as Vice President Ryan
Huckla, Secretary Tyler Neal, and Treasurer Dale Hall, were inducted by DG Reg
Madison and the president of the Fonthill Rotary Club, Paul Snack.
