Rotary in Guelph Centennial

Name A Star Program - $100

Rotary is celebrating 100 years of Service Above Self in Guelph in 2020. In preparation for this event, Rotarians in collaboration with the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) and a dedicated set of sponsors and volunteers have been developing the 100-acre Rotary Forest near Guelph Lake with the final planting set to coincide with the Centennial year celebrations in April 2020.
To augment and maximize the community value of the Rotary Forest the Rotary Club of Guelph and its Foundation have been instrumental in developing and supporting the creation of an exciting community hub embracing: active living; nature and the environment; family recreation; and associated educational programming through the development of a new Nature Centre at Guelph Lake with Connecting Trails to the City and the Rotary Forest in addition to an Observatory & Planetarium at the Centre  
The Name a Star Program is part of a Rotary fundraising initiative to support the Observatory and Planetarium development and related on-going astronomy educational programming and events at the centre.  
Contributors have the opportunity receive the coordinates of your named star as identified by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. You can dedicate your named star to celebrate a key event in your life or for that of a loved one, a friend or colleague as a gift in recognition of significant event or special achievement.  For example, name a star to celebrate the birthday of child, a grandchild, a grandparent, your spouse: an engagement; a wedding; an anniversary; a graduation or other special occasion. Alternatively, you could dedicate the star to a school class and allow them to enjoy the discovery of their class star at a Star Gazing event at the Nature Centre.
Your “Name a Star Package” costs $100 and includes:
  • Framed Name a Star Certificate with your dedication caption
  • Constellation sheet describing the constellation that contains your star
  • Star Finder to help you navigate the night sky on any day and time to find your star
  • Tips to find your Rotary Star
  • Rotary Centennial brochure
  • Tax receipt of approximately $70 for the donation portion of your contribution
