Long-time Rotarian Jack Talstra was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow during the Rotary Club of Terrace’s Annual Installation of Officers at the Skeena Golf & Country Club on June 22. Talstra, a member of the club for 32 years, received the recognition in tribute for his 29 years of civil service and for his demonstration of shared purpose with the objectives of the Rotary Foundation (Service Above Self).
Outgoing President Kristine Kofoed heralded the club’s successes. “Over the past year, the Rotary Club of Terrace donated over $92,000 to projects in Terrace, the region and the world. Our club helped feed breakfast to low-income elementary students in Kitwanga; we helped purchase a diagnostic ultrasound unit for Mills Memorial Hospital so people in the community wouldn’t have to leave their loved ones to go get tests done, and we paid for the salary of a full-time nurse and donated funds for medicine to Alianza, an organization created to provide accessible healthcare in one of the poorest regions of Guatemala where no health care exists. Our Valentine’s Day Rotary Foundation event helped raise over $23,000 for the Rotary Foundation and that money will be used to promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, save mothers and children, support education and grow local economies all over the world.
