As a precaution against the spread of the CORVID-19 virus,
the Rotary Club of Ladner's club meetings on Tuesdays will continue on the Zoom meeting system. If conditions improve and a sufficient number of members support it, to allow the safe gathering of our members and guests, the club may start meeting at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn on
Tuesday, August 18, 2020 combined with a Zoom meeting option for those unable to attend in person.

Opportunities open for Rotary and the community of Delta
“Rotary Opens Opportunities.” That’s the theme for Rotary in 2020-21. Yet, for over its 63 years, Rotary Club of Ladner has been continually opening opportunities for its members, for our community and for our world. We are building relationships with other organizations near and far, and with the people in them as they too serve our community, they with us, and we with them.
Peter Roaf, President, Rotary Club of Ladner, 2020-21
That theme was experienced as Rotary Club of Ladner installed its new board of directors for 2020-21 at a virtual ceremony on June 30, 2020, officiated by the 2020-21 District 5040 Governor for 50 for the Rotary clubs in BC, Dave Hamilton.
Longest serving member celebrates anniversary
This year retired dentist, Dr. Arthur Birk, celebrates 50 years as a member of the Rotary Club of Ladner. Congratulations, Arthur, and thank you for your many years of service to our club and community.
Sunny Saturday coffee in Rotary Park
Ladner Rotarians gathered for an impromptu "Coffee in the Park" on Saturday morning to catch up in person, at long last. The gathering, organized by Chris Offer, at Rotary Park next to Delta City Hall, abided by social distancing. Mayor George Harvie dropped in to say hello.

At work for our community and our world - The Rotary Foundation
The Rotary Foundation transforms our gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.
Since it was founded more than 100 years ago, the Foundation has spent more than US$4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.
The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International enables Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
Help up for struggling mothers and families
Mamas for Mamas aims to change the landscape of poverty through innovative approaches to financial barriers faced by mothers, caregivers and women in crisis. The national organization, founded in Kelowna and now operating in Delta, is working with multiple levels of government and non-profit agencies, to change systems that contribute to the vicious cycle of poverty, mental health issues, housing, and food insecurity. At the same time, it supports struggling families with a hand up, providing essential needs of food, affordable housing and education. See the previous story on Mamas for Mamas.
Disease Prevention and Treatment honour for Steve Rutledge
Congratulations to Whitby Sunrise Rotarian Steve Rutledge on receiving the District 7070 Dr. Bob Scott Award in Disease Prevention on June 30, 2020. Steve recently presented an update to Ladner Rotary about Adopt A Village Laos, a program he has led for many years and which has made a significant contribution to disease prevention and treatment.

Rotary Club of Ladner, which includes among us his sister, Dawn Rutledge Brennen, joins Rotary Whitby Sunrise Club in congratulating Steve on this well deserved honour. #rotarywhitbysunrise #rotary7070
Reading on the trail for children: Storywalk
StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children's book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you're directed to the next page in the story. Storywalks are proposed for Delta.
StoryWalks® have been installed in Canada, the United States, Germany, England, Bermuda, Russia, Malaysia, Pakistan and South Korea.
Sweden Today
Rotarian of 27 years and member of Sweden’s Parliament, Ann-Britt Åsebol, spoke to Ladner Rotary members from her home of Falun, in northern Sweden on July 21, 2020. After 25 years as a teacher, Ann-Britt, having appealed to politicians over many years for various changes, was encouraged to run for public office herself. She started her new career as a County councilor of Landstinget Dalarna. In 2010 she was elected one of 349 members of the Swedish Parliament where she has served on the Committee of Constitution, and Committees of Education, of Social Insurance, of Social welfare and of Culture. As a member of the Rotary Club of Falun Kopparvågen, Ann-Britt also served as a Rotary International Director 2012-14, as one of the first women to be elected to the RI Board.
