  • William spoke about the Pattullo Bridge gas line replacement.

  • The new gas line won't be on the new bridge due to seismic reasons.

  • Fortis will be doing a horizontal directional drill underneath the Fraser.

  • One option to relieve the pressure is called the transmission pressure option which will have a two car garage sized pressure regulating station at the foot of the bridge on the New Westminster side.

  • The station will be dressed to look like a part of the community and not an industrial eyesore.

  • The other option would be called a distribution pressure option which will affect traffic for three months, closing down one lane on both sides of McBride.

  • Currenly they haven't decided on which option to choose, so they are asking the community's opinion.

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. 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. Greeters will:

  • ensure that the sandwich board at the entrance.

  • ensure that flags and banners are in place.

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

  • greet and sit with the speaker to gather information useful in providing a respectful and meaningful introduction of the speaker and the program.

  • thank the speaker and present 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.)

  • assist in taking down the flags, banners and place the sandwich board back in Kathy's office.
