4 Way Test:
President Alfredo led the group in the Four-Way Test. We had 17 members present and 2 visiting Rotarians, Davinder Grewal our ADG and Scotty Grubb from the West Vancouver Sunrise Rotary Club.
Rotary Moment:
Scotty Grub recited the "Ode to the Haggis" to commemorate Robbie Burns day. We all got to sample a surprisingly tasty haggis with a shot of Scotch as a lubricant :)
* Davider Grewal, our ADG, told us about Rotary's 105th anniversary and how we are all part of this achievement.
Guess who is coming to dinner will be on April 7th. Please let Natalia know whether you can participate by hosting or attending.
* In February 2018, the eyes of the Rotary World will be on Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Zones 24 and 25 will host the Presidential Conference on Environmental Sustainability and Peace. Our member Diana Theman will be attending. Read more about this conference on the official website: https://environmentandpeace.com/
* We need a volunteer to help with managing and keeping track of the donated items for the Valentines day auction. 
* On February 23rd we will have the Rotaract club visiting our club. Please try to attend.
