Rotary Moment:
On Tuesday July 5, Diana and gary attended the City of Vancouver, Awards of Excellence Ceremony at Van Dusen Gardens… where Mayor Gregor Robertson, presented our fellow Rotarian Ron Suzuki, with a CIVIC Merit Award.  Ron was chosen after a unanimous decision by Vancouver City Council to receive the award, which is one of the highest honors bestowed on an individual in Vancouver. The Civic Merit Award was established by the City in 1942 to recognize individuals for outstanding performance in sports, science, arts or culture – or in recognition of a specific service.  Ron received the Civic Merit Award for his tireless work as an advocate for children in Vancouver’s low income communities and for strong leadership in developing a successful basketball program exclusively for girls and young women at Strathcona CC. 
Ron’s work over the years - supports Rotary’s mandate of Service above Self.  Congrats Ron on receiving the City of Vancouver Civic Merit Awards.  You make all Rotarians proud!
