Linda trying to hide from the photographer, but a quick move from Terry solved that problem. Too much fun at the breakfast with Santa event. Finally I add a photo of the three wise men... your choice.
District Governor Lindagene worked hard when she came to our club on her official visit. First, the computer system failed to function so her presentation was verbal only. Then came presentations to Mike Brown and Travis Strain for work well done in supporting the club the way they do. To be followed by the induction of a new member, and a board of directors meeting at the close of the meeting. Who said the job DG was easy, if you think so put your name in for DG21/22. Thank you Lindagene for all that you do. 
A new member you say... yes, Ashley Harrison was sponsored by John Campbell.
Welcome to the family Ashley. 
The Foundation Dinner is being held at Newlands this year. This is our home ground and a great opportunity to see what's going on. It's also an opportunity to meet old friends from other clubs. You can register from the district site at http://www.district5050.org 
What a fabulous night. The food was outstanding and the company even better, coupled with a host like Terry and Judy Smith it had to be a recipe for success. Thank you everyone for all the preparations you undertook. A big surprise was Claudia's husband Mathew who prepared a plate out of a Paris magazine, only wish I had taken a photograph. In all the food choices were so well blended that if you were to try and prepare a full menu with dishes that compliment each other, this would have been hard to beat.
To the guests that made the evening special. Thank You.
For years, nurses and midwives at the Mwituria Dispensary would dread women going into labour at night. The clinic initially had a solar power system to meet their electrical needs. However, over the years, wear and tear and lack of proper maintenance led to collapse of the power system. This plunged the clinic into darkness, which meant torchlight deliveries were the norm. Any complications were made ten times more difficult to treat under low light conditions.
Meet our newest member Karla Barton. We were fortunate to have Rotary International VP Dean Rohrs available to do the induction ceremony. I have the feeling that Karla will be a huge asset to the club, already she is eager to join a committee. Welcome aboard Karla, it may take a while to adjust but when you do you will find we are one big family. 
 
Vivian Smith and Craig Goulet paid a visit to the club to talk about the new expansion to the emergency department of LMH. The expansion will increase the number of treatment spaces in the emergency department to 49 from 31, and will also have a separate pediatric waiting area for children. There will be separate entries for walk-in patients and ambulance arrivals to increase privacy, and the number of trauma bays will increase from one to two. To minimize the risk of infection, additional hand washing stations, utility rooms, a decontamination area, and an isolation room will be added. Mental health and substance use patients will also benefit from a secure, separate treatment area so their needs can be addressed privately and in a way that best supports the care they require.
Jeff Morfitt gave us the rundown about a new project that's available namely a Ribfest. Jeff pointed out the opportunity would be available to Langley only if we jumped on board now. If Surrey were to take the event then we would be left in the dark owing to the distance between boundaries set by the organization. Happy to report that all four clubs are on board and we have a go. Now we have to make this a major event for Langley. On a side note I noticed the clubs who took the bull by the horns and held their first Ribfest returned for a second kick at the cat. (northeast terminology) some clubs doing third and forth events. Looking forward to next year already.
