Rotary International President Ray Klinginsmith and Judie visited District 5040 as the keynote speaker for the Annual Foundation Dinner in the Vancouver area. Definitely a highlight of my Governor's year.
The visit started with a quick stop in Steveston to view the Rotary summer banners along the main street of the City. This was the Rotary Club of Steveston's plan to promote Rotary's continuing presence in the Community for the past 15 years. Accompanying President Ray were Club President Peter Mitchell, PDG Bob Blacker, Rtn Bob Jones, PP's Albert Wong and Wilbur Walrond, DG Penny and PDG Chris Offer.
Followed quickly with a visit to the Salvation Army Rotary Hospice House and a tour by Rotarian Major Margaret Evans. President Ray was accompanied by DG Penny Offer, PDG Chris Offer, Richmond Rotary Club President Mahase, and Richmond Rotarians Tony and Chuck.
A very special visit with President Ray and Judie who enjoyed meeting many Rotarians.
