President Wayne called the meeting to order, and after O Canada, encouraged members to bring in new members so we can increase our impact on the community, just as DG Brad had suggested.
    Announcements took up a fair bit of the meeting time, with topics including club website, arboretum, Groups of Five, Know Your Neighbours, work groups, social committee, World Polio Day, Foundation Dinner, Taste of Fort Langley, and RLI.
     Our guest speaker was Laura Sandgren, President of CDART (Canadian Disaster Animal Response Team) SWBC.  She and CDART founder Cheryl Rogers spoke about their agency and informed us about how to prepare a disaster kit for our pets and the needs the pets face in case of disasters.  Ours was Laura's first presentation and her enthusiasm showed.  The lengthy Q&A which followed the session showed that a high degree of interest was sparked within the club.  Pets often become parts of families.
     We sang Happy Birthday to Rudy Storteboom, who admitted he might be having a birthday but divulged no numbers. For more photos visit October 3, 2019.
