Two very active Rotarians from India joined us for breakfast on February 14th.
Husband and wife Rotary members Sukhi and Harinder Mahal members of the Rotary Club of Indore Meghdoot in District 3040 visited with us and told us of their personal and Rotary history.  They are planning to move to Surrey in the near future.  We donated to the Canadian Eyesight in their name to honour their visit.

Judging by the email we received (sent to President John Edwards) we made a good impression.  
Dear John,
Thank you for inviting us to your club meeting today morning. It was so good to see & meet you all the members of a wonderfully active club. We appreciate the zeal and energy of all members. 
As we are now in the process of settling down in Vancouver permanently, we look forward to meet you all again. We also thank you all for the warm welcome extended to us and invitation for the membership of RC of Surrey. We will take a little while to decide on it. Also thank you for the sumptuous breakfast. 
Look forward to see you soon.
Warm Regards
Sukhi and Harinder
