News Updates
The Rotary Club of Langley Central was pleased to sponsor two local students (and facilitate a third being sponsored by the Rotary Club of Langley) to attend Adventures in Citizenship this year in Ottawa. Pictured at top are Amint, Emma, and Danica with Club member Lilian Cazacu as they prepare to leave for their adventure. All expenses were paid for the three of them to attend this amazing program that included a visit to Parliament among many other activities in the company of other students from all over the country.
The Langley Advance Times wrote a nice article on their experience that can be seen at Langley students contemplate meaning of citizenship during Ottawa visit - Langley Advance Times.  To learn more about Adventures in Citizenship, please visit The Rotary Adventure in Citizenship Program | Rotary Club of Ottawa-Ontario (rotaryottawa.com) and contact your local Rotary Club if interested in attending next year.
Our friends at Honey Mustard Media paid a visit to Rotary World Help as they were loading another aid container and created this video to raise awareness of what they do. The Rotary Club of Langley Central is a big supporter of this organization and appreciate the opportunity to share their amazing work.
Our Interact Club of Hopeages Langley, primarily from RE Mountain Secondary School, performed a slam dunk by donating $5,000 to James Kennedy Elementary School to help with repairs for their Grade 4/5 field. This money was raised by the Interact Club partnering with the 4 Rotary Clubs of Langley to host the extremely successful first annual Hoop-a-thon event held earlier in the month to benefit a variety of youth charities and projects. Pictured above is Principal Cathy Gracie and executive officers of the Interact Club including Jenny Wang who is President. Congratulations all on a great partnership to benefit youth in the community. To find out more about the Interact Club of Hopeages Langley visit HOPEAGES - Home (weebly.com)
The Rotary Club of Langley Central was honored to present scholarships to remarkable students at RE Mountain Secondary School on Thursday, May 30. Member Brian Lott represented the Club and thanks to the efforts of member Rodney Blackwell, the Ron Butcher Memorial Scholarship was presented in person by Ron's daughter Ronda Stepto pictured above. We wish these recipients all the success they deserve as they take the next step in their journey to meet their potential and dreams. Our Club gives out 15 scholarships annually to students. Future candidates should talk to their school counselors for information.
The Rotary Club of Langley Central has the pleasure of supporting Langley kids with Diabetes the ability to go to camp this year. The Club donated $2,500 to Diabetes Canada (along with other local Rotary Clubs) to provide this opportunity for 11 local youths to attend D-Camp. Pictured above is our Service Director, Alexandre Fernandes, Aina Tarnow, and Craig Dickau from Insulet Corporation who were nice enough to come and speak to us about their company and many amazing features of the camp. For more information, please visit Home | Insulet and D-Camps - Diabetes Canada.
The Rotary Club of Langley Central was a Sponsor this year of the student entrepreneur I.D.E.A. Summit that was held at Langley Events Centre’s Fieldhouse building on Tuesday, May 7. Young entrepreneurs from across the District wowed their fellow students, parents, staff and community members with their creativity and innovative ideas.  Beginning in the morning, elementary and middle school students set up booths where they marketed and sold their creations – which this year, came with a twist: all products had to include at least one recycled or upcycled item.
Our own Alexandre Fernandes (Service Director for our Club), attended as a community mentor and judge of the presentations. He is pictured above with Alicia Rempel, Executive Director of the Langley School District Foundation that organized the event. May is Youth Service month for Rotary and we were glad to support these outstanding students and their innovations. To learn more please visit Young entrepreneurs ‘inspire’ at I.D.E.A. Summit (sd35.bc.ca)
Our Club was happy to welcome Kate Ludlum and Jude Henders (pictured above with member Stew McIvor) from the Langley Senior Resources Society to our meeting and present them with a cheque for $2,500. This grant will be used to help fund a new van for their facilities that provide tremendous support to Seniors in the Langley area. We would like to recognize the great work they do and the growing demand for their services. We are proud to support them in their important efforts. To learn more about the Langley Senior Resources Society, please visit Langley Senior Resources Society (lsrs.ca).
The Rotary Club of Langley Central has been honoured recently to receive visiting Rotarians (and potential new ones) from India. Pictured above is member Dean Rohrs exchanging Club banners with Vaibhav Waghmare who is now a permanent resident of Langley. Vaibhav's parents are Rotarians in India and he has expressed interest in joining the nearest Rotaract Club or our Satellite Club. Also pictured is Prashant Sheode from the Rotary Club of Poona, India who we thoroughly enjoyed visiting with during our meeting. Rotary is found everywhere around the world and it is always rewarding to connect with those visiting or when travelling abroad.
