Meeting Structure Format

1.     Kevin Holloway outlined the essence of the Board approved new “Meeting Structure Format”. This will be subject to possible modification.

The goal is to incorporate quality time into each meeting for fellowship discussion amongst individuals.

A questionnaire was circulated asking for feedback.   

 Click here for the questionaire.

In essence there would be about 10-15 minutes of free time for chat between the 12 noon gong and commencement of business at 12:15 sharp. Stay tuned, and kindly respond to Kevin’s questionnaire.

Rotary Carol Sing

Fines and Happy dollars:

Most significant was a return of (from near death experience) Joe McEachern; all smiles after receiving his 2 new stents for coronary artery blockage. Great to see you back, Joe.

The David Thompson Columbia Brigade is an exciting re-enactment of famed explorer and cartographer David Thompson’s trip down the Columbia River to the Pacific ocean, final leg of the fur trade highway, in 1811. Intrepid voyageurs Isaac Mucklow, Robbie Bates and Colin Seed were on hand with a fine powerpoint presentation. They stressed the goals being to raise awareness of this feat and to make Canadian (and American) history come back to life. The ride will commence at Invermere in SE British Columbia and finish at Astoria, Oregon. The 2008 Brigade ventured to an earlier geographical limit and was very well received. Our presenters will make up a canoe of 11, and will travel with 6 others. Education is key. The presentation was well received with many questions, all answered well. Birthday boy John Stewart was eloquent in his plea for making this a successful awareness initiative on an international level.

 The crew were thanked by Dave Legge.
