We Are Family - We Are People of Action

District Governor Craig Gillis and Gerry Gillis

 
You know you've got a "good guy" for District Governor when he is willing to arrange his very busy schedule to MC your club's annual fundraiser with very little notice. DG Gillis did a bang up job to boot!  Didn't know he could sing either!

Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial Creates Christmas in September for Extended Care Residents at Cumberland Lodge

 
It's Christmas in September at Cumberland Lodge.  Seen here are Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial Treasurer, John Jones (standing at left) and Committee Chair, Dave Stevens (standing at right) presenting a representative group of Cumberland Lodge residents with a new refrigerator for their recreation room and also MP3 players and head phones for use in in Cumberland Lodge's Music Therapy Program. Seated starting at left is Mona Johnson, President of Residence Council John Rheault, Charlotte Lauret and Norm Silvester.  Having just finished dinner at Cumberland Rotary's monthly "Dining In" Program the residents retired to the recreation room where the presentations were made. Research has proven that music cannot only improve the mood of people with neurological diseases it can also increase cognitive skills and listening to familiar loved music can awaken the person inside.
 

Cumberland Centennial Donates $1,000 Towards 10 person Dragon Boat for Comox Lake

Pictured to the far left is Andrea Keenan of Vancouver Island Paddlers and Linda Oprica, Community Service Chair.  Vancouver Island Paddlers started in Victoria in 2012.  It now has a membership of 250 with the bulk of members in Victoria but Vancouver Island Paddlers North is located right here in Cumberland on Comox Lake with members increasing every year.
Dave Mellin and Greg Sawchuck, Directors of Forbidden Plateau Reclamation Society visited our Club on August 14th with an extremely interesting presentation outlining all the work being done to return the old ski hill site back to nature.  It is amazing how much work has been accomplished to date.  There is still the gargantuan task of removing the towers.  Our hats go off to the Society and their volunteers for making the site safer.
