Incredible Young People

At our August 27th meeting, Erica Kelm, our short term RYE student spoke to us about her experiences participating in the Adventures In Citizenship program (trip to Ottawa) and her short term exchange in Spain. Sara Baun Andersen, our recently arrived Danish RYE student also spoke, updating us about her first few weeks in Canada. They were joined by Erica's Spanish short term exchange counterpart, Fiona.

Erica has just completed grade 12 at Stelly's High School in Central Saanich. She is taking the next year to work and travel and then hopes to attend University to study Marketing. Erica really enjoyed her Rotary experience with Adventures in Citizenship in Ottawa and her short term Rotary Exchange to Spain. Erica expressed that she was grateful for the friendships she formed through Rotary and that she has a much larger view of the world. We wish Erica all the best in her future endeavors.

SBS Rotary Welcomes New President

 
Assistant District Governor Dan Mercer congratulates Mike Jellinek at his installation as President of the Rotary Club of Sidney by Sea  at the Capital City Yacht Club on June 27th.
 

 
The week of February 23rd marked 110 years since Paul P. Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele, and Hiram E. Shorey gathered in Loehr’s office in Room 711 of the Unity Building in downtown Chicago for what would become known as the first Rotary club meeting. It also is 30 years since Rotary launched its campaign to rid the world of polio. Rotary clubs around the world celebrated the milestones in a variety of ways. You can view some of them by following this link.
 
As part of those celebrations locally, the END POLIO NOW and Rotary logos were projected onto the Empress Hotel. 
 
 

 
 
At the Rotary Club of Sidney by the Sea's recent Christmas party held on December 5th, Dorothy Winlaw was surprised by her good friends Ann Doran and John Bardsley with a Paul Harris Fellowship. Dorothy, wife of long-time member Murray Winlaw, has always worked tirelessly alongside Murray on a myriad of club projects and events, and in her own right has contributed her time, talents and expertise to so many club activities. It is truly a well-deserved honour for Dorothy, and doubly so to have received the honour from her friends. 

 

 
 
The Rotary Club of Sidney by the Sea presented Heather Burkett with a Paul Harris Fellowship on December 5th.  The Paul Harris Fellow award is the highest honour a club can bestow on a person, either inside or outside the club. The award therefore acknowledges "service above self" which that individual has offered to their community, their nation or indeed to the world. Ms. Burkett received this recognition because the Sidney by the Sea Rotary Club felt that her life and work exemplifies the humanitarian and educational objectives of the Rotary Foundation, and a commitment to helping persons in need locally and around the world. 
 
Through her recent work as District Principal in Saanich School District and her friendship with Dr. Mitra Hashemi, Heather became aware of a number of children needing dental care in our community. Together they founded ORCCA (Oral Care for Children and Adolescents), a non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide children and adolescents under 19 years of age from low-income families access to oral care in a not for profit setting. It is based on the beliefs that all children and adolescents have the right to healthy oral care and that effective oral care positively transforms the health and lives of children and adolescents. The clinic is due to open early in 2015. This organization was the major recipient of our club’s fundraising efforts for community projects in 2014.  
Heather Burkett is a former teacher, university lecturer, school administrator and district administrator. She has presented and worked locally, nationally and internationally.  She has sat on several non profit boards and while in Manitoba was nominated as Woman of the Year for her work in restructuring an inner city school serving largely new refugees and First Nations students. Heather also has a long-term interest in the development of schooling in Nigeria. This has entailed the building of a school and more recent work with the Ovoko Widows Project in which 76 widows who cannot afford to send their children to school have received support through helping them to develop self-run businesses. As a result of some of her work she was selected as Person of the Year by the Dinamba Intercultural Association and initiated into the African Igbo Tribe.
 
After receiving her award from President Bob Leitch, Heather responded in a heartfelt speech to the membership, detailing her long-term relationship with and gratitude to Rotarians, dating back to literacy projects for which she approached Rotary for assistance while living and working in Manitoba. She also expressed her hope that ORCCA’s relationship with the Rotary Club of Sidney by the Sea would continue into the future.
 
 

 
 
 
Our annual Poinsettia fundraiser is done! Under President Bob Leitch's able command (and aided by an impressive array of Rotarian elves), the plants were counted, sorted and dispatched out to their destinations with nary a hiccup. Well done, everyone!

Practicing peace
Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence."
