Rotary Club of Powell River Sunrise
On March 1st Chris and I had the opportunity to speak to the newest Rotary club in District 5040, the Rotary Club of Powell River Sunrise. The club was chartered on December 1, 2010 and will hold their charter night on March 26th. A number of clubs from across District 5040 and from District 5020 (Vancouver Island) are sending representatives to the club's charter night.
RRFC Chris Offer spoke to the club about The Rotary Foundation programs the types of grants available to the club, the importance of international service and how the club members can financially support The Rotary Foundation.
The new club is building their own traditions and Rotary identity. They have received outstanding support from the Rotary Club of Powell River and plan to work closely on future projects and fundraising and hold joint social and friendship events.
