Rotary Victoria displayed seventeen years work
in Africa at the conference.
We covered clean water, literacy, sanitation and more...
Rotarians Rod and Patricia Crossley will be in Kenya during February to hand over eleven clean water sites (nine funded by RC Victoria and DCG) and to interview for job training. Rotarian Mark Ziegler from Sooke will be joining us for part of the time. .
L'Amicale Francophone du Rotary Victoria a rencontré le Consul général de France, M. Philippe Sutter, pour une conversation riche et intéressante. Nous espérons pouvoir aider à présenter le Rotary à la communauté des francophones de Victoria et au réseau d’enseignement en français.
Rotary Victoria's French Fellowship group met with the Consul General of France, M Philippe Sutter for a wide-ranging and interesting talk. We are hopeful that we will help present Rotary to the community of francophones in
Victoria and to the french language education network

With permission from our District Public Image Chair we are launching the District 5020 Member Facebook Group. A Facebook "Group" invites members to join. Once accepted into the closed group - they are encouraged  to contribute, post and comment on District wide Rotary topics, so this is for "internal" communications among District 5020 Rotarians and friends such as youth exchange students,  Interact, Rotaract, alumni, etc etc. 



Rotary volunteers are helping to distribute food from the Food Rescue Project to families at Craigflower Elementary School.  This is an ongoing project so we will be looking for a couple of volunteers each month. 

Please check the schedule below to see where out Club needs volunteers and contact President Kim if you would like to help.
