Chris and I attended two club Installations this past week. I was delighted to install the 2010-11 Officers and Directors for the Rotary Clubs of West Vancouver Sunrise and Lionsgate North Vancouver. Both clubs had a great year in 2009-01 and are looking forward to another year of membership growth, fellowship and service. PE Jason Bowman for WV Sunrise and PE Jim Godey for Lionsgate have set goals to build Bigger, Better and Bolder Rotary clubs as they work to Build Communities and Bridge Continents. Both events were attended by DG Gordon Dalglish and AG Ken Wilson.
West Vancouver Sunrise was also celebrating their 20th Anniversary. Other guests included PDG Dean and Rhino Rohrs, PDG Chris Offer, incoming club presidents Jim Godey, and David Spears, and former members including two grandchildren of past President Maureen Swartz. The sun shone as we enjoyed the beautiful setting of the West Vancouver Yacht Club and celebrated the past 20 years and future success of 'the little club that can".
There are many more club Installations scheduled over the next few weeks. I look forward to being part of many of them and wish all the incoming presidents and club boards a great start to the new Rotary year.
