Club Activities
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. 
 
PROJECT LITERACY
Paul Zuurbier gave us a great presentation on the important role Project Literacy plays in our community. In speaking with others after the meeting, it was obvious that most of us did not appreciate the breadth of the services they provide. Our club has been a long-time supporter of this organization and for that we are very proud!
 
 
NOW CANADA
Liz Talbot, Exec. Dir. at NOW Canada, was also on hand at this week's meeting to bring us up to date on the important work of her organization, and to receive a donation from the club to assist with purchasing gift cards for children's Christmas presents. Donations Committee Chair, Sheldon Paulger, surprised Liz with a second cheque, from President Bill personally, matching the club's donation!
