Indigenous Relations & Awareness


Over the last several years the Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary Club has supported the National Rotary movement establishing “Honoring Indigenous Peoples” as a national charity. The board now feels it is time to establish a new Indigenous Director’s position to provide the necessary leadership. Clay Melnike, who recently joined our club, is our new Indigenous Director and has significant experience working in sport development and the leadership field, and particularly with the Indigenous Peoples over the past seven years. Clay is in the process of soliciting input and setting up the new committee to assist him in determining how we can have a positive impact on this important topic for our community and for Canada.


The portfolio has 4 pillars:

  • Research and Data Collection
  • Awareness
  • Education
  • Relationship Building

More information to come.
