Delta Clubs Celebrate Rotary Day

The three Rotary clubs in Delta celebrated Rotary's anniversary with a presentation at Delta City Hall to Mayor Lois Jackson. There are three Rotary clubs in Delta; Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta (D5050). Major Jackson was presented with the plaque and thanked for all the support she and members of council give to Rotary over many years. Mayor Jackson thanked the Rotarians in Delta for all they do for the community. The plaque was made by students from a local high school.

On 23 February 1905, Paul P. Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele, and Hiram E. Shorey gathered in Loehr's office for what would become known as the first Rotary club meeting.
