Rotary Moment
Lorri brought us the Rotary Moment this week:
In much of the official literature of Rotary International relating to service to young people, a special slogan will be found -"Every Rotarian an Example to Youth." These words were adopted in 1949 by the Rotary International Board of Directors as an expression of commitment to children and youth in each community in which Rotary clubs exist. Serving young people has long been an important part of the Rotary program.

Youth service projects take many forms around the world. Rotarians sponsor Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, athletic teams, handicapped children's centers, school safety patrols, summer camps, recreation areas, safe driving clinics, county fairs, child care centers and children's hospitals. Many clubs provide vocational counseling, establish youth employment program and promote use of The 4 -Way Test. Increasingly, drug and alcohol abuse prevention projects are being supported by Rotarians.

In every instance, Rotarians have an opportunity to be role model for the young men and women of their community. One learns to serve by observing others. As our youth grow to become adult leaders, it is hoped each will achieve that same desire and spirit to serve future generations of children and youth.

The slogan accepted over 40 years ago is just as vital today. It is a very thoughtful challenge, "Every Rotarian an Example to Youth."
Guest Speaker
Our Speakers today were Jason Lauzon, Principal of King George Secondary, and Jessee Coomes, YFW and Archiavalist of the school.
King George Secondary School is a small school near Stanley Park in downtown Vancouver. Its small size is one of its biggest assets. While the population is diverse, students are accepting of each other and there is a strong sense of community where students feel safe. King George offers an academic program. Students may also choose electives in fine arts, business, technology, home economics, and physical education. Second language courses are offered in French and Spanish.
These are some of the highlights from their presentation:
* KGS currently has 550 students, who speak over 50 different languages!
* The KGS Interact club currently has 27 members, making it the largest leadership club in the school.
