Shredding for a brighter Christmas
At least 50 of the 600 low income families throughout Delta, registered with Deltassist, will enjoy a happier Christmas thanks to $4,900 in net proceeds from a paper Shred-A-Thon which Ladner Rotary held on November 7, 2020. The funds will be used by Deltassist to purchase food gift cards, replacing the usual Christmas Hampers of food collected through local schools and other organizations because of pandemic restrictions. Raising the cash, rather than the food, has proven to be a large, extraordinary challenge, but a big "THANK YOU" to all the Delta residents who drove up in 135 vehicles to clear their homes and offices of 4.5 tons of paper and contribute to the shredding fundraiser, bringing some Christmas joy to those who have little for themselves.

Delta has benefitted from The Rotary Foundation over the years
Founded over 100 years ago, The Rotary Foundation is recognized by international foundation rating organizations as one of the world’s most trusted and effective foundations. It is the foundation for Rotary International, the world’s original service club. Over time it has spent more than US$4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. It is the powerhouse behind many of Rotary’s contributions to communities here at home, such as the Ladner Rotary Splash Park, and around the world.

Members of the three Rotary clubs in Delta, including the original Rotary Club of Ladner, throughout BC and around the world raise funds for, and donate to, The Rotary Foundation because as little as 60 cents can protect a child from polio, $50 can provide clean water to help fight waterborne illness and $500 can launch an antibullying campaign and create a safe environment for children.

Eight Ladner Rotarians shared stories about their family members who served or were serving their country in the military as a salute to all those who lost their lives, limbs and peace of mind in that service on the occasion of Remembrance Day.

Vancouver's Women in Blue salutes active duty of women in Vancouver Police over 7 decades
Vancouver's Women in Blue is a tribute to the 125 women who have served the Vancouver Police from 1904 to 1975, from their early roles as matrons and, after a long, slow course, eventually as police constables.
 
In 1904 Mata Raymond was the first woman Vancouver Police hired as a matron to supervise women in jail. In 1912, Canada’s first two women started serving as full constables on active duty. In the mid-1930s women continued to double as police constables and matrons. It wasn’t until 1973 that Sharon Smith was the first female constable to be sent out in a patrol car with a male partner.

Emergency services contact through 911 now in most of BC
E-Comm is the first point of contact for 9-1-1 callers in 25 regional districts in British Columbia. It handles over 1.8 million 9-1-1 calls a year. That amounts to 99 percent of B.C.’s 9-1-1 call volume.
 
E-Comm 9-1-1 emerged from the chaos in coordinating first responders during the 1994 Stanley Cup Riots in Vancouver, as a multi-municipality agency which provides emergency communications operations for the province. The company coordinates 9-1-1 service for police, fire, and ambulance service, providing call-taking and dispatch services for multiple agencies in the Lower Mainland area.
