4 Way Test:

Alfredo led the group in the Four Way Test. Today we had 19 members present, as well as our Assistant DG, Parvinder Grewal, our speaker Yahaira Moran and her companion, Meriely Arias, Director of Publicity and Promotions, Venezuelan Canadian Society of BC


Rotary Moment:

Our Rotary Moment was presented by Assistant DG, Parvinder Grewal.   She paid tremendous compliments to our club, for our camaraderie, enthusiasm and the fact that everyone participates personally. This is Parvinder’s last year in her term as Assistant DG. She focused on the new District Governor, Don Evans.
Don is a strategic planner. He suggests that we visit the Rotaract and Interact clubs in our area at least once a quarter. Also very important is that the Website is always kept up to date. We should make sure that we occasionally attend a hands-on visit to local projects. The Squamish club has opened a bank account for donations to help those affected by the BC Fires. And we must work out a system for recording volunteer hours for all members.
