A weekend in the Bulkley Valley. After visiting the northwest clubs last week we are looking forward to visits this next week in Smithers and Burns Lake on Highway 16 between Prince Rupert and Prince George. We booked into a B&B in a log lodge outside of Smithers for the weekend. We are surrounded by mountains in this beautiful valley. We visited the 91st annual fall fair and talked to Rotarians flipping burgers and boiling corn to raise funds for their local and international projects. A very busy few days for the Smithers Rotarians. A few days for us to get some rest, catch up on emails, do a newsletter and enjoy this beautiful part of District 5040 before visiting two more clubs next week and then heading back home to Vancouver. We will drive about 3400 km on this two week trip visiting clubs before we get back home.
