President Wayne reminded us that we can help Rotary Connect the World at Ribfest this weekend.  He announced we were getting a second quote for services for the proposed district grant for work at LCSS.  Special guests were Lillianne Fuller, Brooke Lindberg, and her parents, Clayton and Cathy.
     Brooke, a recent graduate from Langley Fundamental Middle Secondary School, spoke about her volunteer experiences and her plans for the future.  As a winner of one of our $1500 scholarships, she was most appreciative and thanked us for helping her, and stated, "I plan to continue to volunteer and make a difference in the world around me."
     Lillianne spoke about the Nicomekl Elementary School lunch program and her involvement with that project.  Students behave better and learn more when they are not hungry, and the results of providing food for the students who otherwise would not receive the nutrition needed are obvious and heartwarming.  Lillianne has been able to obtain sufficient sponsorship funding for this year, but may be back to see us next school year.
