Hello dear Monica and Rotary!
First of all, I'm sorry to hear about Mabel. I met her a few times, and will remember her as such a kind person, with a good heart.

I'm thinking of all of you every day, and sending my best thoughts to Alana and Palmer. I hope he will get well soon.

I've been meaning to write to you for a while, and have been trying to reach Hansi and Tom as well through email, but I'm not sure they recieved it :)
Anyway, thought it was time for me to give all of you wonderful people an update of what is going on in my life.

I got accepted into a music institute in Berlin, called BIMM institute (British and Irish Modern Music Institute), and I'm moving this summer, to stay there for at least three years.
I'm so excited about it and about getting to focus more on music and singing! I have a sister in Berlin, whose family I don't get to see that often, so that's another plus by moving down there!

In the meantime, I'm finishing school next week, with my last final. Then we have a tradition in Denmark, where the new graduates, get a smart hat, kinda thing, and we get to flaunt it around town, and show everyone that we're new graduates! Can't wait to wear mine!

My mom got diagnosed with cancer in the end of november, last year. It was a bit of a surprise, and hit me quite hard. Luckily they found it in time, and very early on it the stages, so she is now almost cancer free, just waiting a few more months before it's certain. But things are looking up :)

I strictly told myself not to fall in love, nor to engage in any kind of relationship with anyone for the next 5 years, to be able to focus completely on music... but as everybody knows: you can't plan you future completely, and fate wanted me to meet the man of my dreams in march. So I am no longer single, and hope to never be single again. He's the kindest soul I've ever met, and I'm hoping to bring him to Vancouver in a couple of years, or maybe next summer!

So quite a lot has happened, I am the happiest I've been for quite some time, (not that I wasn't happy before, I certainly was) :)
I hope that all of you are doing great! Know that I miss you guys so much, and love you! I am still both grateful and so incredibly happy that I got to spend my year with you guys, and that for all that you've done for me!
Hope to hear from you soon!

All my love
your danish Julie

Greeter Duties

Greeters are the first point of contact for guests, potential new members, and our members. Making all who attend our meeting feel welcome is the responsibility of all of us as we all take turns being greeters.

1.       All greeters should arrive no later than 6:40 am and be prepared to assist in setting up and preparing for the meeting. If a greeter cannot be present for their day of duties, please contact another member to fill in for you.

2.       Greeter # 1 will ensure that the sandwich board at the entrance

3.       Greeter # 2 will ensure that flags and banners are in place.

4.       Greeters should welcome all members and guests and make them comfortable with the proceedings and surroundings, i.e., seating, coffee, schedule of meeting etc.

5.       Greeter # 1 greets and sits with the speaker to gather information useful in providing a respectful and meaningful introduction of the speaker and the program.

6.       Greeter # 2 thanks the speaker and presents the certificate of appreciation for their presentation. NOTE: The certificate is NOT a contribution of $20.00 in the speakers’ name. We donate $20.00 to the Rotary Foundation in recognition of their presentation at the meeting.

7.       Greeter # 3 assists in taking down the flags, banners and places the sandwich board back in Kathy's office.

·         Greeters may change duties amongst themselves if desired.







The Good Host program is how YOU can get involved - you are invited to help out by meeting, greeting and sharing cultural experiences with our Youth Exchange students. Juan Herrera (Mexico) and Lavinia Cappriccioli (Italy) are here and deserve to see and experience Canada to the fullest. 

Any one of us can be Good Hosts by simply sharing some time with Juan and Lavinia. A phone call, lunch, dinner with family, sporting event, cultural outing, almost anything goes. However - all who host our youth exchange student unsupervised - even for a day event - must have submitted the YE police check paperwork to Paige Freeman prior to hosting.

Please remember to include our youth exchange students in any activities you and your family participate in. Juan and Lavinia can be contacted as follows:
