Royal City Rotary has received several wonderful thank you letters from families who received Christmas hampers last year.  Here is a link to download a copy of these letters.
To all Rotarians,
This email was sent by Ben Whiting, looking for some information. If you can provide some information, please let Sandy Freeman know so that a response can be arranged.
Hello. I am working on a history project on the small corvettes of the Second World War, particularly those named after British Columbia places. Often service clubs in towns and cities tried to support the crews of ships, to make their life on board more bearable as they fought in the frigid waters of the Battle of the Atlantic. One such flower class corvette was "H.M.C.S. New Westminster".  Is it possible that the Royal City Rotary may have helped out with blankets, warm clothes, etc?  Is there an archives, or history for the Royal City Rotary which may have some information on this ship and her officers and crew? As an example in other research, I have come across many references to the service clubs of Chilliwack assisting the men of the corvette "H.M.C.S. Chilliwack" as they adopted their namesake. Any suggestions you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.............. Ben

On behalf of the You Wear it Well Executive Committee, I would like to extend an invitation for you to attend our Preview Event on Sunday, March 4, from 9:30 - 10:00 AM. We like to invite our sponsors to attend a preview of our Boutique Day event, before the students arrive, so that you can see what we do and how your generous support helps to make our event a success. If you are interested and have some time to spare that morning, we'd love to see you there!

With sincere thanks for your support,


You Wear it Well...Just for Grads

Executive Committee

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 student. Victor Xavier (Brazil) is 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 Victor. 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. Please speak to Victor directly or contact him at:

  • Email: xaviervictor393@gmail.com
  • Cell: 778-893-2532

Current total membership - 36

Attending total - 29

Welcome to our guests: Doug Coutts, and Victor Xavier
