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.

The Rotary Club of Steveston's 2012 Santa Parade, through the streets of Steveston village, was a tremendous success.

Not only did everyone, both young and old, have a good time, but a great deal of food was donated (by people on the route) to the Richmond Food Bank.

Also, we collected donations of cash on the route, which amounted to $356.00; this will be passed on to the Richmond Food Bank. 

Well done to everyone involved and...Merry Christmas!

 

 
 

The Rotary Club of Steveston continues its challenging schedule with the many projects and activities scheduled for 2012-2013 . Our members have attended the District Assembly, District Conference, Zone Conference, Rotary Leadership Institute training courses and Future Vision presentations.

For various reasons, five long standing (if not charter) members of the club did not renew their membership in 2012-13.  Although their decisions had been flagged to the current President in 2011-12, it was particularly sad to see the following members leave the club:

Barb Bradey

PP Bob Butterworth

PP Sally Houston

PP Bill McNulty

PP Jim Toogood

All of the above have been made Honorary Rotarians of the Rotary Club of Steveston.

In July there was a club questionnaire, completed by 80% of active members. The results of the questionnaire were fed back to the Board and the general membership and formed the basis of the club policies for 2012-13. 

The Rotary Club of Steveston continues to support local church facilities to provide community meals, specifically with  St. Alban’s and Gilmore Park.

The Club also provides bursaries for post secondary education and supports a large Interact Club at McMath Secondary School.

Fundraising  to provide assistance to the many community and international projects requires a great deal of time and effort by our members. The major annual fundraising projects are:

Steveston Seafood and Wine Festival

Jimmy Ng Ball Hockey Tournament

Prime Time

...and the Club is looking into creating a Rotary Club of Steveston Duck Race, to be inaugurated in August 2013.

The Club continues to be very active in the community.  Activities include the shoreline cleanup, donation of Christmas hampers, an annual BBQ and Christmas Lunch for Senior Citizens, the Santa Parade, the provision of dictionaries to local schools and, last but not least, acting like pirates at the annual Canada Day/Salmon Festival.

The Rotary Club of Steveston is also involved in the international arena include funding for polio, school facilities in Trinidad and Tobago and literacy learning facilities with First Nation Communities in BC.

Last but not least, the Rotary Club of Steveston adopted ‘Clubrunner’ as the platform for its new website; this not only brought the Club into line with other Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 5040, if not the BC Lower Mainland, but the move to 'Clubrunner' will aid tremendously in the administration of the Club. The old Rotary Club of Steveston website has been linked to the new one as an archive.
