It was my pleasure to present Mike Dennis with a Paul Harris +7 pin in recognition of his contributions to the Rotary Foundation on behalf of our Club. A "+7" pin has 2 rubies in it, and signifies a contribution of $8,000 to the Foundation. Thank you for your continued support, Mike! Pres Ross
I was thrilled to present Pat Cotter with the July Rotarian of the Month pin in recognition of the work he does in the Club. Pat has been working behind the scenes on several items of great importance to our organization, and his engagement as a Past President is admirable. Thank you, Pat.
Inbound STEP (Short Term Exchange Program) Student Roope Lindemann of Finland joined us for lunch with his host family Jackson McPheet (Outbound), Mom Kathleen Taylor and Dad Curtis McPheet hosted by Toni Stedeford. What an excellent opportunity to see another country for one month and trade off, and as Toni pointed out, 2 of the 7 students in our District are in Prince George facilitated by our Club. Great work! Roope was introduced by Brad Douglas (sorry no pic) and thanked by Martin Meyer. Pres Ross
Fellow members give your selves a big hand we were able to have 75 guests to lunch today and it almost felt like the good old days.
With over 40 guests out you all did great bringing out colleagues, friends and the general business community to a very informative BOC presentation by Calista Cheung.
the topics discussed were wide ranging from global economic outlook, current and north American economic growth or lack there of and future projections for expansion or shrinkage.
We had the time for some great audience questions and found out that the BOC has no official stance if Donald trump becomes the next president (thank you Brent).
