Windsor-St. Clair Rotary Inducts Terry Cloutier President 2018/2019
The Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Clair has a new President. Terry Cloutier, who for the past 31 years has served as the Manager of Employment Services for Community Living Windsor, will take the lead for the 2018/2019 Rotary year.
A Rotarian for more than a decade, Terry plans to take a number of initiatives across the finish line. “We will install little free libraries, complete garden beds for a seniors’ residence and undertake a third round of bike lights for immigrant workers,” she says. “A significant new focus will be developing an initiative to assist persons with mental health and drug addictions in our community. There is a great need here!”
This year’s theme for Rotary clubs across the globe is to ‘Be the Inspiration’. “We recently redid our Club’s vision statement which will drive our focus on sustainable programs to improve literacy, focus on youth, provide clean water and enhance green spaces,” she explains. “We hope that through the implementation of these projects, we will inspire others in our community to join us in these service efforts.”
Rotary is the world’s largest service organization with 1.2 million members. The Rotary Club of Windsor St. Clair is comprised of about 35 members from around the Essex region dedicated to improving our local and worldwide communities by undertaking projects to address hunger, health, literacy, promote physical activity, and provide support to the financially disadvantaged in our community. Some of the club’s projects include the Ganatchio Trail, the region’s first boundary-free playground in the Town of Tecumseh, the Rotary Roundabout at Manning Road, Wake Up Windsor/Get a Working Smoke Alarm, and RELAY, which has built and refurbished five schools in Africa.
