Program for July 11th
The program for July 11th is a visit from the District Governor and the installation of our 2018-19 Officers.
 
It is also Aldair's last meeting.  Let's give him a good send off! 
 
District Governor Craig Gillis was raised in Williams Lake. He pursued a B.A. (history) at the UVIC where he met his wife Gerry. They ventured to Prince Rupert as high school teachers before moving in 1976 to Campbell River, to teach, retiring in 2008. After serving as a counselor, vice-principal and principal in elementary, middle, and high schools, Craig spent eight years as Director of Instruction (K-12) and Assistant Superintendent for SD 72. Craig and Gerry have their Master of Education degrees. Gerry, a high school counselor, chartered and then sponsored the Interact Club of Timberline Secondary. Since retirement Craig has worked as a SD 72 consultant, coordinating mentorship for principals and vice-principals and facilitating the Aboriginal Education Improvement Agreement dialogue. He works with VIU and the UVIC in Field Services, supervising student teachers. Recently, he trained all workers in Campbell River for Elections Canada. He serves as a B.C. Marriage Commissioner.
 
A Rotarian with Campbell River Daybreak since 2001, Craig has always had service in his blood. He has served as director/grants chair for the C.R. Community Foundation for seven years. Prior to his year as President in 2010-2011, he was named ‘Rotarian of the Year’. He has served on multiple club committees citing youth activities as a focus---Literacy, Student of the Month, Scholarship, RYE. An advocate of the club’s wheelchair project, he participated in the distribution of 280 wheelchairs to Colombia. He is a multiple Paul Harris fellow and soon a Paul Harris Society member. A perennial presenter at DLTA, he has served as District Trainer, Asia Country Officer and Youth Exchange Chair, and has cofacilitated over twenty Rotary Club Vision sessions.
 
The Gillises are very proud of their daughter, a clinical psychologist, and their son, a documentary film maker. Their first grandchild recently arrived!

President's Message
Marc Jackson

Thanks to everyone for helping me this year,  It wasn't nearly as hectic as I assumed it would be.  Your helping hands made the effort fun and I will remember those moments. Aldair's first snowfall,  Ann giving Jessica a Paul harris fellowship,  Austin getting to his fourth Paul Harris,  my daughter getting to sing,  Sam's tireless assistance.  and giving badges to our new members.
 
Marc especially for taking on the torch and keeping the fine tradition of this club going.  Patrick Downy told me the club and the projects it undertakes need to make a visible difference.  He was a fantastic example of dedication and commitment.  I hope  I'm strong enough to do the same.
 
 As I get older I realize it is easy to focus of everything that could have been done better or communicated better.  At the start of my term however I relayed this quote.  
 
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. 
Theodore Roosevelt
 
  I'm happy to have lived up to that quote every week as chaotic as it felt at times it all worked thanks to the entire club chipping in to fill the gaps.  Chuck, Jason, Jody, Sam, Marc, Ann, Austin, Ken, Ralph, Jessica, Stephanie, Brian.  everyone flexible enough to do what they could in the moment made for a really fulfilling year it was amazing.
 
Charge on.
 
 
Sincerely
 
Gregory Birch DDS
