President Krysta Logozzo Daniele welcomed 34 Rotarians and our guest speaker, acknowledged our presence on Fort William First Nation and chaired our new family member inductions (below).

Co-hosts were Kevin Holloway and Mary-Anne Mackett

Kevin H played O Canada from the Bell Centre, Montreal (adoring fans present in real time)

 The club welcomed new Family Membership Rotarians: Donna and Bill Ostrom, and Janine Chiasson/Patrick Morash (pictured). Warren Philp recruited these amazing folks, and introduced them all,( til out of breath), summarizing their numerous interests and commitment to community and service. Brenda Winters read the "charge" and they were ceremoniously pinned by President Krysta. The club saluted all four in this new era of membership. They will certainly enjoy Rotary.


Rotary Peace Fellow Freddie Huppé Campbell, a proud Métis from Kimberley B.C. became connected to Rotary in Bismarck, N.D., and went on to obtain a Global Grant Scholarship, spending a year in Durham U.K.
With a strong educational background in conflict resolution and peace initiatives as well as environmental action, with special focus on Indigenous-non Indigenous relations, she is carving out a special career in this field.
 One close by notable "Indigenous Clean Energy" example involves a solar energy project at Gull Bay First Nation. Currently based in Ottawa, she heads up the Global Hub program there.

Her energetic and very articulate presentation was very well received by the members and a lively Q and A followed. Her work provides hope for her people looking "7 generations" into the future... as well as connecting Indigenous peoples and their vast knowledge of the environment and Rotarians.

Freddie was introduced and thanked by Rod Morrison. For him, and all of us, this was a "terrific learning experience, and she is a great role model." Freddie is happy to connect anyone at all to her work and has a podcast in the offing.
