Exec, Directors and Committee Chairs
Welcome to our Club! The Rotary Club of Kamloops Daybreak was chartered in April 1986. We are a friendly boisterous group that enjoys hands-on projects, both in our community, and in developing countries. Come join us for breakfast and laughs!
Decorum? Hmmm... How about heckles & hugs? Our meetings are "interactive".

Stories and Club happenings
Eagle is fundraising for his basketball team. Here is an opportunity to see him play and show our club support for this talented and determined student.
He has tournament tickets for sale for the Fulton Cup 2014 Basketball Tournament at SKSS on Dec 17, 18 and 19th.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
Please contact Eagle directly to purchase. His cell is 778-257-3753
If you forget what he looks like, here's a shot of him doing time outside the liquor store and missing out on basketball of some kind!

Our recent AGM brings us new blood for our Board of Directors, so HUGE thanks to Tammy Robertson, Bryce Herman, Tony Gilbert, Sandra Blair, Colin Willis, Alan Milton, and Wade Billey. Kudos to those members who are able to continue on the Board supporting the Club.
Directorship assignments are still to be finalized.
Special thanks and recognition for Roxanna Ferguson who steps in line to be Daybreak President for 2017/2018.
Our Club made a commitment to TRU to provide $1000 bursaries to Students in need, who fit basic criteria we created at the beginning. To fund these bursaries we created an endowment whose "interest" would fund future bursaries.
In an effort to support additional recipients, and to add a Fellowship opportunity for our members, Roxanna has graciously organized Bursary Dinners, where a member hosts and provides dinner for 2-4 members and their spouse/guest and receives a $100 donation to the Bursaries in their name, and each guest couple donates $100/couple to the Bursaries. A bottle of wine is always appreciated to share with the meal.
To put a Daybreak ZING to the whole thing, the Guests don't know where they are going or what they are getting for dinner till the day of the dinner.
This is the team that makes sure the room is set up with all the important stuff to run our meetings. Once the meeting is over, they are the ones that put the stuff away again. Watch out, they are also looking for the most innovative way to fine you also, so be on your guard. These folks also look after guests and do the Happy Bucks.
We use our website to communicate new Events and Announcements to the membership.
You can reduce how many you receive by replying to the Events, or using your Password, you can login and select Attend/Decline. Either way will keep you from getting any more "Invitations" to that Event. The system knows who has responded and only Invites those who we have no response from.
If you need a new password, just ask! (reply)
The Events tool allows us to ensure we have enough volunteers or attendees when we commit to help somewhere, or plan a get together.
