News Updates
Cecelia Reekie from the Rotary Club of Aldergrove joined us for a moving presentation during our May 24 Club meeting. Her talk encompassed a deeply personal experience as a First Nations member and that of her family.
Cecelia shared the history around Residential Schools that took children away from their parents with the express purpose of "assimilating" them. She painted a vivid picture of her own grandmother having to turn over 10 of her 11 children and her father's time housed there. The emphasis was not to forget this history as it is part of Canada and none of us will after such a moving talk. Thank you Cecelia for sharing with us and bringing a better understanding to all.
Ribfest Langley needs your help to make one of the biggest free events in the lower mainland happen for our community and families. Come join us for the fun and do some good while you are at it.

Welcome to our new member Penny Moon! She was inducted into the Satellite Club's membership during the meeting on May 9 and is pictured above receiving her certificate with Travis Strain and John Meagher. Penny has been involved with the Mission Rotary Club for 10 years and is excited to meet new people and continue her work of "Service Above Self" with us here in Langley. It is great to have you on board Penny and thank you for joining us in our shared efforts to serve the community.
Tanya Hall, a Sunshine Coast Rotarian and friend of the Club, was our guest speaker for the May 10 meeting. Tanya described her trip throughout Central America, during which she organized the painting of a community hall, a prison, a police station, a school and others. At the prison, she taught inmates how to become professional painters. She also was able to get funding to provide a school with some needed computers. President John thanked Tanya and presented her with the coveted Rotary Coffee Mug.

The Four Rotary Clubs of Langley have been active in the News and Social Media as they announced Otter Co-op and Angry Otter Liquor as Title Sponsors for the 2023 Ribfest Langley event. In case you missed them here are some highlights:
Langley Advance Times and Aldergrove Star each ran a half page article about Ribfest Langley and our new Title Sponsors.
There have also been digital ads running to promote sponsorship for the event and follow Otter's generous lead. In the next week or so there will also be quarter page ads in print to inspire more sponsors to join.
Otter Co-op created a fun Social Media video that has been well received and viewed. Facebook
