At this Wednesday's meeting, we had 14 members present as well as Joan Posivy from the Rotary club of Vancouver.


Rotary Moment:

James Fox jumped right into his club duties by providing us with a Rotary moment today. He told us about the Guatemala literacy project. The Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) is a partnership between Rotary International clubs and the non-profit organization Cooperative for Education (CoEd). This initiative provides badly-needed textbooks, computer labs, scholarships, literacy and training programs to underprivileged children in Guatemala.
You can find more details on their website:
  • The hoopathon kickoff meeting will be at our club on April 19th.
  • Rotary Club of Vancouver Sunrise President and Foundation Chair would you please encourage your members to sign up for our District's most important annual event in support of The Rotary Foundation, especially as we celebrate its 100th Anniversary. Guests are welcome. Please email Ted for more information.
  • Volunteers needed.  The annual TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes is taking place on June 11th. As one of their signature fundraising events, they rely on over 500 volunteers to help them execute the event. If any members are interested in volunteering they are welcome to review opportunities on the two websites below. They need volunteers in Stanley Park Vancouver as well as Mill Lake in Abbotsford.
    Fraser Valley:
    Any help would be most appreciated.
Meeting -   During our meeting today we had Joan Posivy, from the Vancouver Rotary, tell us about the Global Youth Project. She founded this project in 2014
One of her favourite speaking engagements — for the last 20 years, in fact — has been at the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) camp for young adults. I see an incredible amount of talent and potential in each one of them, and more importantly, I want to be sure they see this in themselves.
