Please click on the link below for syllabus and registration
 
 
See you at the Festival
 
February 18 - March 3
Grand Concert Saturday March 4, 2017
 
*******************
 
Ok, we know it is right for you but is it right for someone who thinks they want to join Rotary?
 
Have a look on the District website.  Scroll down the left side of the home page and you will see this button:
 
 
We are asking all clubs to add this section to their own website.  The better informed someone is about Rotary BEFORE they join the better chance it is the right fit for them and they will stay and become engaged Rotarians.
 
Regards,
 
Tom Smith
 
PS:  This email was sent to Presidents, PE's, Membership Chairs, PR Chairs and some of the District leaders..
Greetings All!
Just to give everyone a head's up about the change of meeting place for Feb 22nd, 2017. We will be meeting at Striker's Bowling Alley. When you arrive, please order right away as they have a small kitchen. They highly recommend the Appie Platters - they are $30 and good for 2 or 3 people. (And much easier for their small kitchen to handle.)
Burgers will be available, but will a limited selection of sides. 
Bowling will be $7.50 per hour for the people that are bowling.
Best bowler in the club gets the coveted Wendela Trophy! 
Thanks!
Sean

David Duke travelled to Bali recently where he did a make-up at a Rotary club meeting there. When he returned, he presented the Bali club banner to president Carol Brown at the August 12 weekly meeting. 
Mauro, our Rotary exchange student from Brazil, attended his final weekly meeting before heading home after his time in Powell River. Senior member Kip Brown and International/Youth director Frieda Hamoline wished him well in the future. He received a Powell River tee shirt (his favourite colour grey) and a copy of Off the Beaten Path book full of photos of this area. Other club members wished him well during Happy and Sad Dollars, paying for the privilege, and after the meeting as well. He flies out of Vancouver on Tuesday, August 4, 2015.

Rotarian, Kathy Rothwell, was a good sport ... both throwing pies and getting pies thrown at her to help raise funds for Ineract.

Sara, Claude, and Ron were hard at work to sand the floor. Work is complete and finished photos will arrive soon. Thanks to all that put in countless hours to make this hall look fabulous.

Our six members raised more than $3,000 of the total $15,000 raised in Powell River for the Movember event that lasted the month of November and ended with a shave-off at Carlson Community Club on November 29.
