100th Anniversary of Rotary International in Canada

Rotary Club of Willowdale proudly announces that Canada Post will celebrate the centennial of Rotary’s service in Canada with a commemorative stamp: issue date is June 18, 2010.

The Canada Post magazine issue of April to June 2010, Volume XIX No.2, has a feature article titled Rotary International in Canada, 100th Anniversary. Two million commemorative stamps, souvenir sheets, postcards, and 19,000 Official First Day Covers with special cancellation marks will be printed and issued to the public. “The stamp will be cancelled in Montreal, where celebrations for the 100th anniversary of Rotary International will be taking place in June.”  Thanks to Rotarian Jorge Montalvo for going above and beyond to make the 100th anniversary of Rotary International a philately celebration.

Happy 100th Anniversary of Rotary International in Canada!
