In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Yvonne & Cleone :  Poppy anyone?

Guest Speaker - Lois Wagner - Walking without Skin
Lois was a very inspirational speaker and personal coach.  She told us of her unimaginable journey she went through in South Africa and how long it took her to FORGIVE, but once she did it set her 'FREE'
She has written a book - Walking without Skin that is her story but also suggestions on how anyone can get past their situation.  Her new passion is BE BRAVE......
Thank you Lois for sharing your story.

After being loaded at the Rotary World Helps Warehouse in Coquitlam in late September our container has made its way to the Port of Belize. It's again on dry land and is now in the process of being unloaded.  This is exciting.  Thanks to Cisco Woods for sharing the picture.
 
 
 
FedEx picked up 520 kits today for Days for Girls that will be headed for Afghanistan. 

With love to Afghanistan! 520 kits left this morning on a journey half way around the world. A gift of love from the Port Moody Chapter to our global sisterhood. Be safe and know that you are in our circle of care. A great big "Thank You" to all members and those who contribute to the Port Moody Chapter. ❤️
