Stories and Club happenings

While Mackie waits for the Finnish days to get longer, she continues to blog about her adventures.
I know she would love to hear from anyone from the club!


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!Image

These happily compassionate souls experienced the joy of giving to the Boys and Girls Club at John Tod School in Kamloops.  After a huge turkey dinner was served, Santa (Al Milton) appeared and distributed gifts to all, to the sounds of screams of joy and total fun.

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 Imageadditional 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.

DG Bruce and Donna invite all District 5060 Rotarians to Celebrate the Family of Rotary in Kelowna from June 18-21, 2015 at UBC-O.  There will be good food, great speakers, music and enlightening breakout sessions.  The Inbound Exchange Students, Rotaract and Interact members will play a major role. 
In addition to the speakers, breakout sessions and entertainment, registration includes Home Hosting, Breakfast, Lunch and the Gala Dinner on Saturday and Breakfast on Sunday. Optional tours and the golf tournament will be extra. 
To register, go to and log in using your email address and password.  If you do not remember your password, you can ask the website to send you a new one.  Once you are logged in click on Register and then click on Conference 2015.


Did you know that your Newsletter email is tailored to you, showing at the bottom, your commitments to Events and Committees?

Do you have the Clubrunner App on your phone, that allows you to access the Club members contact lists and call/email with just one touch?



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.

On our Webpage we have a NEW link to email the Club Secretary your Make-up information. Look on the left side under Club Links... report your visits to other clubs, attendance at work projects and events.. and keep both YOUR attendance up, and the Club's attendance record up as well!


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.
