I am deeply honored to be the President of the Rotary Club of Victoria, Canada for the 2017-2018 year. When PRIPs Gary Huang and Rick King signed my proposal for membership, I had no idea of the journey I was about to take. This club is amazing.  Everyone supports each other and that is why we are over 100 years old and continue to prosper.

A Rotary Moment: Service above self
Before we began our Christmas lunch Past President Dan Parker asked us to think about the difference Rotary Victoria is making to our community and the world.

As you may know, our Club played a key role in the formation of the Food Rescue Program that launched this past Thursday in Esquimalt. It was a very special day for Rotary, The Mustard Seed Street Church, The Victoria Foundation and Thrifty Food’s with the official opening of the Food Distribution Centre. Our hard work in fund-raising has manifested itself in this wonderful program from which thousands of needy Victorians will benefit.


On Friday 23  June 2017, Patricia (Rotary Club of Victoria) and Rod (RC Kakamega, Kenya) Crossley received the Meritorious Service Award from the Governor General at Rideau Hall in Ottawa for their work over 16 years in Western Kenya. This medal is awarded for service which brings honour to our country.
