Looking for something different to do on a Wednesday night? Join our club in a Potluck for Polio.

We are asking for a minimum donation of $25 per person - $5 being used to cover venue costs at the ARC and a dish to share and your own beverage.

The remaining $20 will be a donation in your name to our Polio Plus fund so that you get recognition and a tax receipt. Every dollar raised is matched by the Gates Foundation with $2.

There is a sign-up sheet and tickets (in exchange for your donation) available at the Peak office if you would like to participate.
Rotary Club of Powell River donated $1,200 to Brave Hearts for 10 new heart rate monitors. Brave Hearts is a rehabilitation program designed for people who have had a cardiac event. The program is a partnership between Vancouver Coastal Health, Tla'amin Health Services and the City of Powell River Parks, Recreation and Culture department.
This week, Wednesday, August 28, is our Adopt-a-Highway cleanup. We will meet at Willingdon Beach for vests and equipment and head out for cleanup. There will be a BBQ to follow for those Rotarians that made it out to lend a hand.
 
 
Author and scriptwriter, Rick Antonson, former President & CEO of Tourism Vancouver, was thinking big and long term when his organization launched the successful bid to bring the 2010 Winter Olympic Games to Vancouver and Whistler. Rick will be one of our speakers at the District's 2020 Vision Conference, April 24-26, 2020 in Vancouver. Our focus for the conference is on "vision" and he certainly personifies that.
