Newly inducted member David Marler provided a unique "classification " talk today (having been instructed by Past-President Art Warwick, to just "talk about himself.") The formula worked well.

Pictured left to right:  Past-President and David's Mentor Art Warwick, Jeanne Marler, David Marler and President Warren Philp
 
David has a stellar personal and family history going back to his birthplace in Montreal, before and beyond. He is an accomplished lawyer with many high profile cases in transportation, maritime and constitutional law. He has close connections to the RCAF and flying. He has also seen fit to live beyond his chosen profession and has been an adventurer, writer, fund raiser and community advocate. He has arrived now and settled in Thunder Bay close to his daughter. Rotary is a new avenue of interest and service. His wife Jeanne is equally accomplished (art, athletics and much more).

His presentation was very entertaining indeed.  David is pictured with his wife Jeanne, Past-President Art Warwick (mentor and thanker), and President Warren Philp (who introduced David and encouraged Rotary to him in the first place). 
 
Thanks David, and we wish you continued success with your book: One Cabin, One Cat, Three Years:  One Couple’s Time in the Wilderness!
