Club Visits August 9th to 12th
AG Gary Gurnsey, Pres Lisa Tomich,
DG Penny in Mackenzie
We are back home after being away from home for 11 nights and travelling 2247 km visiting 7 clubs over the past two weeks. Last week we visited clubs in Prince George and Mackenzie British Columbia. Beautiful warm sunny weather and the wonderful hospitality of Rotarians greeted us as we travelled around this beautiful part of District 5040. The three clubs in Prince George hosted a tri city BBQ for my visit at the Rotary gazebo overlooking the city from the campus of UNBC. This was a great opportunity to meet many local Rotarians and their families. Thank you to the three presidents and each Rotarian who helped make our stay memorable.
Mackenzie, one of our smallest clubs and one of the most isolated is looking forward after some difficult years during the recession. President Lisa invited many guests to the club meeting where we inducted a new member. She hopes to get a couple of more members for Rotary in Mackenzie after this meeting.

Thanks to AG Gary for all his assistance during our visit to the “north” and all his support for the clubs in his area around Prince George.
