Merry Christmas 2015

Good news Friends. Your Rotary clubs have permission to keep the Rotary Lake skating rink open over Christmas. We will have skating on the lake starting December 26 - Jan 3rd but we are looking for volunteers to step up as supervisors. Rotarians are signing up to look after the gates, supervise the skating, and throw some logs on the fire but we need your help. The rink will be open from 2:00 - 8:00 pm but we are breaking up into shifts from 2:00 - 5:00 and 5:00 - 8:00 pm. If you can help with one or more of these shifts please contact Alex Reschny at 250 719 4760.

Body, Mind & Soul

Posted by Elizabeth Leonhardt on Jun 19, 2010

"Love is misunderstood to be an emotion;
actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of
being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others."
— Dr. David Hawkins: Psychiatrist, physician, spiritual teacher, lecturer
