It's The Food Bank Drive time of year again, and now is a great time to start putting your teams together for the Drive on September 12th.  

We ask that you assemble your team of family members, friends, fellow Rotarians, work colleagues, sports team or any other group, then go to the Food Drive web site to register:  www.gpfooddrive.ca.    You will receive an email confirmation of your registration. 

If you are unsure of who will be on you team or do not wish to enter their names, please indicate how many confirmed team members you have under 'Team Member Names'  If you are unable to assemble a team and still wish to volunteer please register and enter 'Volunteer' under team member names.

Thanks for your participation in this event and for helping Rotary in Making a Difference in our community.

Here we are thanking PP Karen and welcoming President Dave.
 
The Swan City Rotary Club was also lucky enough to win some awards at the District Level - the International Service Award for our Ethiopia project, and the Community Service Award for our leadership of the Food Bank Drive.
We will all miss Simona ~ what a great exchange year.  We took a group shot of the Rotarians at the meeting today and Simona.  Safe Travels!
Yesterday Simona gave her year end report - which was amazing.  She also introduced us to her parents who came to se her graduate this weekend.  Pictures on the left is PP Dan Wong, Simona and her Dad showing off their super hero shirts and Right is President Karen and Simonas Dad doing a banner exchange. 

The 9th Annual Merv Crouse Poker Night was just as it should be, an evening of laughter, fun, fellowship and a toast to Merv. In the end it was Bob Normandeau as the winner, Brian Wilson in 2nd and Dan Pearcy 3rd place. Thank you to Mark Marcotte for organizing, to Lola Wright for the photos and to all who attended.

A member from the Friday Rotary Club took up the exchange students for a short ride in a helicopter - what an adventure.  Simona is pictured here with her Inbound councilor Nadine Lacroix.
Today we had some hat tricks for Deb Cartier and Rachel White.  David Little also received an extra hat for being a 4th Generations Rotarian in GP!  We were also happy to present some people with a Paul Harris Presentation.  R-Ken Loudon, Jeremy Waler, Bob Normandeau, Dawn Marie Crouse, Karen Scribner, Mark Marcotte, and Brent Oillund.  Thank you for giving to the foundation that does so much around the world.
Attached is a video link from Pepesan, PDG in Mazatlan regarding the Edson Rotary Club's drinking water project near Mazatlan.  You may recall that we provided $2,500 in support of the project.
Great project - great video!  Please click the link below...
