Club Activities
If you missed this week's program, you missed another great one! We were privileged to have Mike Jacobs, Chairman of the Board of  Emil Anderson Construction, enlighten us on the history of the company, explain some of their amazing projects and innovative construction methods, and share a stunning video and story of the Kicking Horse Pass project, in which they are a major player. Mike, second from left, is shown with Rotarians (l-r) Gord Savage, Bruce Wilson (Program Chair) and Dave Cullen.
Donations Committee Chairman, Sheldon Paulger, presents a cheque to Jeff Neufeld, Executive Director of Hands in Service, in support of their "Living Salads" project.
Three new Rotarians were inducted to the Club at the Nov. 29 meeting! Pictured here, holding their membership certificates are (L to R), Tosca Marangoni; Mark Wagner; and Marg Berner. WELCOME!!
 
 Also at the Nov. 29 meeting, Richelle from the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club and Adria from the YMCA were in attendance to share with us the great work they are doing, and to receive our cheque for $2500 which will be matched by the Stober Foundation.
