Prez Ross had the pleasure of inducting William Osei. William has been a member for a few years with the Nechako Club but with his new semi retirement the Tuesday noon time works better for him. Welcome to our club William.
 

 
 

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.

 

 
 
At our weekly meeting we had the pleasure of having our DG Lynn pay us a visit and share with us her vision for 2016/17
 

 
 

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

 

 
 
The 74th Rotary Club of Prince George Ball was a great one. Lots of laughs, great food and dancing. What a great way to say goodbye and thanks to outgoing President John Kason, Inaugurate the 75th President Ross Birchall and induct the new board for 2016/17 year. A highlight of the night was a quick couple of Salsa dancing lessons and a whole bunch of fun loving Rotarian, spouses and guests showing their prowess or lack there of.

Toni and George Stedeford had a household of about 30 Rotarians and guests today to have a farewell BBQ for our lovely, talented Belgium exchange student Florence. Great food, laughs, tears and celebration for a successful year of her in Canada. We're going to miss you Flo, hope you come back for a visit. Thank you Toni and Georgee for being such wonderful hosts.
 

 
 

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).

At today's weekly meeting President John Kason decided to have the hat passed around for donations to the Red Cross for the tragedy in Ft. McMurray. In no time the club raised $347. Well done club, that's what the spirit of Rotary is all about. God bless the victims of this disaster!
