Rotary Club of North Muskoka members trekked to Toronto for the 2018 Rotary International Convention in June to join roughly 24,000 Rotarians from around the world -- including this Rotary couple (back row) from Nebraska -- in five days of fellowship, learning and inspiration. An evening at the Distillery District, a home-hosting dinner at the Toronto Lawn and Tennis Club, speeches by world leaders and more filled the agenda. Check out some of our convention photos here ...
