We'd love to thank all those that participated and contributed to the success and memories of the 11 Cst Jimmy Ng Memorial Hockey Tournaments. The tournament has instilled the great memories of Cst Jimmy Ng and the consequences of street racing. Over the 11 years approximately $60,000 was raised for the RCMP D.A.R.E. program.
We pass on our supports and thanks to the Ng Family along with our founding partners in the event,

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:
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
...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.
The Rotary Club of Steveston is hosting a free CHRISTMAS DINNER FOR SENIORS 65+ on Sunday December 16th from 1pm at the Steveston Community Centre. Transportation is available. You MUST register in advance as seating is limited. Call Peter at (604) 277-8882
