A week in the Cariboo

A week in the Cariboo and Prince George while PDG Chris was in South Sudan representing RI on a Polio Surveillance Team. 

Last week I had the opportunity to return to this area for a third visit and a second visit to several Rotary Clubs. At the Rotary Club of Williams Lake  I had the pleasure to induct a new member. The club has many activities on the go and is building club leadership. At the Rotary Club of Quesnel I presented a PHF to Linda Turner for her work on the newly released cookbook – Potluck Cookbook. It looks fabulous. I also presented a Major Donor crystal and pins to DGN Rebecca MacPherson and Ted Cryderman. 

During the weekend I was in Prince George to participate in the regional District Assembly on Saturday and the Future Vision Grant management Seminar on Sunday. But we also found some time to have fun. On the Friday evening Bob and Linda Hlina of the Rotary Club of Prince George hosted a delicious dinner and great evening of  friendship in their home for Rotary club leaders. And on Saturday evening their club held their annual Charter Night Lobster Dinner. Wonderful lobster flown in specially from eastern Canada! 

Before flying home on Tuesday I visited the Rotary Club of Quesnel Sunrise and a presentation on Operation Red Nose by Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Prince George Nechako. 

A wonderful Rotary week in the interior of Rotary District 5040. Thanks to everyone for their great Rotary hospitality.
