The Rotaract Club  produced a Rotary themed calendar in support of our club and the Starfish Pack Program, which provides students with food for the weekends. For $25, you can enjoy a calendar, printed on 100% recycled paper, that features key Rotary dates along with holidays and observances (American and Canadian). We've included specific dates to Rotary Districts 5040, 5050, 5060 along with Rotary International events. 

Photos represent Rotary's areas of focus and are taken by current or former Rotary members and Rotary alumni. This 13-month calendar also features fun facts about the Starfish pack program.

You can purchase the calendar online and expect delivery once ordered. You can even choose to have it shipped to you if you're in Canada or the USA.
You can order here: https://rotaractfv.square.site/. On the site, you can see pictures of what the calendar looks like.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
Thank you very much for your time and continued support of Rotaract.

Thank you Claire for putting this out into the Community.
To all you young and young at heart crafters in Port Moody. The Rotary Club of Port Moody is gathering paper snowflakes for the staff at Eagle Ridge Manor to put up in residents’ windows and common areas in preparation for the holiday season. The Rotary Club usually goes inside and decorates several Christmas trees, hangs ornaments and generally puts a festive face on the place. Of course with COVID-19 restrictions, we have changed our approach to ensure the safety of the Residents. We are hoping that we will be able to get the outdoor lighting done and outside window decorating once this spike in cases is under control. In the meantime though, what we can do with the great help of our Port Moody residents is make 150 paper snowflakes for the 80 resident windows and common area windows. Please drop your snowflakes off with Coreen at #204 121 Shoreline Circle on November 22 – do call first at 778-839-2674.
Please have your ❄️ over by Friday!
Thank you!!!!
