Facebook is one of the three primary Social Media tools that Rotary Clubs find most useful to communicate their messages concerning the good works of Rotary, both internally to other Rotarians as well as to external audiences.  80% of Clubs in District 7820 have their own Facebook pages while 25% have Twitter accounts.
The District Facebook page follows all the District club pages and regularly shares posts that are judged to be potentially of interest across the District. By integrating all of the Club pages, the District provides a one-stop-shop for people following Rotary Facebook communication in our area.
One of the priorities for District during the year is to increase the use of social media by Rotary Clubs and also increase the reach that the media has into the community. 
2015-16 RI President K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran
K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran, a business leader from Colombo, Sri Lanka, takes office on 1 July as the 105th president of – a global network of 1.2 million volunteers dedicated to tackling the world's most pressing humanitarian challenges.

, a member of the Rotary Club of Colombo, says a top priority will be to strengthen clubs by attracting men and women committed to improving communities worldwide through volunteer service.

From supporting local food pantries to providing clean water in remote villages, Rotary clubs join forces to carry out impactful and sustainable projects at home and abroad. And Rotary members often are both first-responders and re-builders when major disasters strike, because Rotary clubs are present in every corner of the world.

The Rotary Club of Happy Valley-Goose Bay was wonderfully surprised to receive a visit from DG Stella Roy at their weekly meeting on June 18th.  The second surprise was that Stella was there to announce that the Club had won the Rotary International Significant Achievement Award for Santa to the Coast that has been ongoing for the past 25 years.
