Rotary International Elects Canadian Rotarian Jennifer Jones
First Woman President in History!
 
Jennifer is the Founder and President of Media Street Productions Inc., a 25-year-old, award-winning media company in Windsor, Ontario. She is a proud member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland.
 
Her talents have strengthened Rotary reach and impact, through many roles including as Trustee of the Rotary Foundation, RI Vice President, and co-chair of the End Polio Now: Make History Today campaign, raising funds alongside Bill and Melinda Gates and their Foundation.
 
Jennifer is a leader in cultivating “experiential fundraising” opportunities such as Rotary’s Polio Golf Day with Jack Nicklaus in Jupiter, Florida, USA, which raised over $5.25 million for polio eradication in one day, and the innovative, virtual COVID-19 #RotaryResponds event that raised money for COVID-19 relief projects and showcased Rotary’s response across the globe.
 
Working alongside political figures, celebrities and global leaders, she uses her voice to raise awareness and hundreds of millions of dollars to eradicate disease, support peace and provide clean water and sanitation in developing areas of the world. Her skill as an expert storyteller inspires hope and promise and motivates people to take action.
 
She has received many honors and recognitions including Rotary’s Service above Self Award and the Citation for Meritorious Service, the YMCA Peace Medallion, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and Wayne State University’s Peacemaker of the Year Award – a first for a Canadian.
 
Jennifer is married to Rotarian Nick Krayacich, a local family physician. They share a love for many activities including travel, cycling, golf and relaxing at their family cottage; and they share a thirst for adventure, which has included cresting the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa.
 
 
 
Meals on Wheels is over the moon at the prospect of being able to harvest fresh home-grown veggies right at their new location, the site of the former Milsean Shoppe on 272nd Street. Members of Aldergrove Rotary Club arranged the work parties that saw Meals on Wheels’ front entrance transformed into an array of garden boxes designed to add delicious fresh produce to the meals their kitchen prepares.
 
Rushing to get planted in time for this summer’s season, Rotary volunteers pitched in to make this happen. First, the site was prepared with the expertise of Jason Froese’s prowess at the controls of his mini-excavator, and Robby Robinson who contributed a load of crushed gravel to level the area.

SASSY (Service Above Self Student Youth) is a Program that recognizes and celebrates the incredible Youth in the Langley community. SASSY seeks to reward Langley students who have excelled in demonstrating outstanding leadership skills in school and/or the community. A joint venture of the four Rotary Clubs in Langley, the SASSY Program has awarded $87,000.00 in bursaries to deserving Langley students since its inception six years ago. This year, 37 exceptional young people applied for the honour of being SASSY recipients.   
 
On Friday May 27th, the club welcomed three of this year's SASSY Award Winners who described their SASSY experience, telling us of their leadership activities in the community and in their schools. Our guest speakers (L-R) were: Cassidy Buchanan, an Aldergrove resident attending the Brookswoods Soccer Academy;  Evan Dyce also an Aldergrove resident, who is attending ACSS, and  Daniel Lee from Walnut Grove
        
It was a pleasure to meet three such accomplished young people with such promising futures.

Again this year, a few keen honorary and club members gathered early on a Sunday morning to install then remove the festive Christmas lights that brighten up Aldergrove's main street every December.
 
A real team effort, our thanks go to the Township of Langley Fire Department for the traffic control, Asplundh’s Tree Service who provide the bucket truck, and Gus for his pick up and trailer. Oh yes - and JD Farms for storing the lights. 
 
Packing up the festivities for another year are 
Bruce, Bill, Doug, Gus, Janet, Charlie and George
