Hi folks
The Rotary International conventions  in Toronto is  creating a lot of interest . Already there are 10,000 Rotarians from around the world registered. For Rotarians in Districts 7820, 7810 and 7790 here is a worry free comfortable way of attending the convention.  Attached is package that has been prepared for me by Target tours of Prince Edward Island a very professional and experienced company in the tour business. I asked them to put together a package that will provide bus transportation to Toronto and return, hotel accommodation at the Chelsea hotel,( one of the excellent RI host hotels close to the convention site) , transport daily to and from the convention sites from the hotel and a city tour of Toronto.  The attached document gives the  specific details and costs depending on the number sharing a room. Participants can be picked up here on PEI in Nova Scotia and  New Brunswick and arrangements can also be made for anyone in Quebec  or other parts of D 7790 to join in as well ( those costs are not listed) .  the package  will need at least 30 participants to make this a go and the deadline for booking is September 30 after that rotary will release the block of rooms. 
Please have this broad cast to every Rotarian in your district, put it on your district website and on your face book page.   this is a great opportunity to experience the convention, enjoy the fellowship of other Rotarians and do so in a cost effective way, worry free manner. Please contact Target Tours  if you have questions or direct them to me and I’m be happy to get an answer for you. 
Come and Join Linda and I and experience rotary at it’s best.
