Coquitlam, BC - On Friday, June 12th, the Rotary Club of Coquitlam held its annual Installment Dinner. The festivities served as a great opportunity to thank the 2014-15 President Jim Robinson and his board of directors for all of their contributions. It also served as the transition to the 2015-16 team, which will be led by incoming President Paul Droulis. We look forward to a successful 2015-16 year.
