Christmas dinner and gifts at home this year for special needs adults group
About 70 people in the South Delta Family and Peer Support Group for special needs adults were delighted to receive full Christmas dinners from the White Spot in Tsawwassen and gifts, all sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ladner, thanks to organizers and delivery teams on Sunday, December 20, 2020. This home delivery distribution replaced the normal evening of dinner and entertainment for the Group at the Ladner Community Centre because of pandemic restrictions.
Santa and the Prime Minister help Ladner Rotarians celebrate Christmas
Special visitors helped Rotary Club of Ladner celebrate Christmas in a fun way, including Santa Claus, himself, the Prime Minister, plus Rotary District 5040 Governor Dave Hamilton, District Governor Nominee John Berry and Assistant Governor Dean Hseih. Special thank you to Chris Offer for our Christmas production 2020.
Delta Hospital Brightens up for Christmas
Patients in the 58 acute care beds, outpatients, 92 long term care residents, their visitors and the more than 110 hospital and medical staff at Delta Hospital are getting a lift from the Christmas lights now brightening up the main entrance and the Healing Garden at the hospital's central courtyard. A team of 10 Rotary Club of Ladner members, including several from Pure Sunfarms, put up the lights and seasonal figures over the past weekend.
Rotary-sponsored high school Interact Club gathers food
for those in need at Christmas
The 25 families supported by Delta Secondary School students in a festive season food drive, and the South Delta Food Bank, will receive the 1,750 food and toiletry items as well as over $2000 in cash and gift cards for the purchase of food, thanks to the students’ and school staff’s “Twenty Days of Giving" campaign. The 42 student members of the school’s Interact Club, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ladner, played a significant part in the campaign by hosting a community Drive-Thru Donation event in the school parking lot on December 1st.
Christmas Concert by performers from 50 Rotary District 5040 clubs
A wide range of performers, among members in the 50 clubs of our District 5040, put on a virtual Christmas Concert, hosted by District Governor Dave Hamilton and thanks to the organizing by Past District Governor Darcy Long, Santa Charbonneau and team. Despite the technical limitations of Zoom the performances shone through.
AGM review of 2019-20 and 2021-22 new board
Rotary Club of Ladner looked back on the 2019-20 year, with the theme, “Rotary Connects the World,” and looked forward to 2021-22 with the election of its new board of directors at the club's Annual General Meeting on December 1, 2020. In the past Rotary year, club President Bridget Jacob and the Board of Directors encouraged greater connections between club members, our local communities and Rotarians around the world. The year of connections then evolved into the year of the pandemic necessitating a complete reimagining of how Rotarians, People of Action, could in fact “connect”.  As we Rotarians rose to the challenge and, despite the pandemic restrictions, by the end of the Rotary year our club was able to achieve the Gold level international Presidential Citation and special recognition for our Polio contributions. 
Rotary needs to adopt newer technology and do new things in new ways
Treasurer for Rotary Zone 32 (includes most states in the Northeastern USA), Past District 7500 Governor, leader trainer and Major Donor to The Rotary Foundation, Horton Hickerson, spoke to Ladner Rotary from Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. He advises clubs to take new approaches to meeting, such as using Zoom, and blend with in person meetings when safe to do so indoors. Rotary could not only adapt to the pandemic by using newer technology to apply to traditional formats for meeting, it could be developing new ways to do new things in service to the community and the world.
