Rotary Moment:

Ron brought us the Rotary moment this week. He told us about The Rotary International float in the annual Tournament of Roses Parade which is undoubtedly the largest public relations project of the Rotary clubs of the United States and Canada. Since 1924 a Rotary float has been entered 18 times including every year since 1981. The famous Pasadena, California, parade is seen by an estimated 125 million people via worldwide television.

Funds for the construction of the Rotary parade entry are voluntarily given by Rotarians and clubs in the U.S. and Canada. The cost of designing, constructing and flower covering a Rose

Today our guest speaker was Const. Jason Deucette from the Vancouver Police Department. 

The Vancouver Police Department celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2011. For over a century-and-a-quarter the VPD has been keeping residents of Vancouver safe with a combination of innovative crime prevention techniques and old-fashioned police work.
The men and women of the VPD believe in a level of service that routinely goes "Beyond the Call." They embrace standards of performance that include Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence (ICARE).
