 The Steveston Rotary Club once again demonstrated "Service Above Self” as they hosted 160 Steveston seniors for a free Christmas turkey dinner at the Steveston Community Centre Sunday.  This is their 8th year cooking and serving the local folks who were most appreciative of the meal and the Carol sing, with gifts presented by  “Santa” Bob Jones escorted by Sgt. Paul Poloz in his Red Serge, both members of Steveston Rotary Club.

 

 
 
Our guests for this morning's meeting were David Kimpton from Home Health Care Services and Cathy Bayley from Richmond Orchestra & Chorus.
 
 
There will be no meeting on Tuesday 11th November due to Remembrance Day Holiday.
 
 
 
This morning we were joined by an immensely funny and entertaining Rotarian, auctioneer and chaplain - Patrick Grant. Originally hailing from Montreal, he regaled us with stories from his youth about lost love in Richmond, to his humble beginnings as a chaplain in a hospital and church. After studying at auctioneer school in Billings, MT, in his words, he used to pray "for", now he preys "on" his flock. He now runs a successful event auction enterprise in Skagit valley and was kind enough to demonstrate his silky auditory skills to auction off a set of tickets to Beatlemania at the Hard Rock Casino, won by highest bidder, Peter Mitchell.
 
 
 

A great presentation by David Kimpton from Health & Home Care Society of BC about the Meals on Wheels program. 

 
 
 

Entertaining meeting and CPR demo from Mark Kowalski of Life Consultants.
