This week we have been back home – unpacking, catching up with Rotary emails and chores around the house and packing up to head out again on Saturday for another two weeks on the road to the far northwest corner of District 5040.
I have visited two clubs this week in the south part of District 5040 in the metropolitan area of Vancouver called the Lower Mainland where our home is located.
The Rotary Club of Steveston-Richmond, chartered 10 years ago this Rotary year is an active involved hands on club with many local and international projects. Some of their members leave soon for a dental mission in Zihuatanejo Mexico. Now 31 members strong, they are Rotarians who get it done.
The Rotary Club of Burnaby Metrotown gave Chris and I a warm welcome to their club. Their Membership Accountability focus making membership everyone’s responsibility is adding new members to their club. Their Rotary Coats for Kids program has provided over 5000 Burnaby children and teens with needed winter coats since 2004. Last year they provided over 1300 coats. Way to go Rotarains.
