ROTARY MOMENT

 

Paul Harris said:

 

One’s nativity is not of his own choosing, but whatever it may be, it is entitled to respect: and all nations have honorable place in the worlds family.

 

One’s religion is one’s own possession and he has the right to it.

 

LULU ISLAND MOMENT:

 

RICHMOND:

 

The origin of the name Richmond

 

There are four main theories as to the naming of the municipality “Richmond”.

 

  1. After Richmond, Surrey, England, the hometown of W.D. Ferris, who drafted the original petition to incorporate Richmond as a municipality;
  2. After the town of Richmond, New  South Wales, Australia, where Hugh McRoberts lived before becoming the first settler of European  descent in Richmond;
  3. After the town of Richmond, Yorkshire, England, the home of Mrs. Hugh Boyd, the wife of the first Reeve of Richmond; and
  4. After the Township of Richmond, Lennox and Addington County, Ontario, the birthplace of pioneer John Wesley Sexsmith.
