Ever wonder what makes a Rotarian? What kind of people are they? Where did they come from? How did they get involved with Rotary?
Meet this month's feature Rotarian, Martin Meyer! 
Every year thousands of Rotary Clubs across the world host students from other countries as part of the youth exchange program. We had the pleasure of hosting Gabi Villas Boas from Brazil last year. Gabby has written us an amazing letter we just had to share with you.  
 

Today marks a year I got back from Canada. Its been a year of assimilating all I've seen and lived in this beautiful country. It took a long time for me to put into words what this year meant to me and I still feel like I will never be able to express this year to the fullest, but this is a little bit of my experience (sorry for any English mistakes, its been a while). 

 

When you're 16 (living under two very loving parents wings) there's not much you feel you did it yourself. Getting involved with rotary and my exchange was the first thing I actually did it myself every step of the way. I was not sure what to expect but I knew there was a lot of learning to come and a lot of work to do. I loved Prince George from the moment I got the email I was waiting for so long, but I never imagined how much I would learn from this place.

Over the past 10 years the mountain pine beetle has devastated many northern communities and resulted in local parks having hundreds of trees removed. In conjunction with the Peace initiative and Rotary International President Ian H.S Riseley's mission to have every Rotarian plant a tree, members from all 3 local clubs and the Rotaract club descended on Rainbow Park on June 6th to plant trees. Over 200 seedlings were planted throughout the park under the direction of the City. You can watch the full story online at CKPG

Close to 300 people attended a community breakfast at Spruceland Elementary Traditional School April 19th.  Parents and kids filled the school gym and were invited to eat a morning meal together. Breakfast can be the most important meal of the day as students learn better on a full belly. The meal was hosted by the Rotary Club of Prince George and Sinclar Group. See the full story at CKPG today.

5 Reasons to Join Rotary
1.  Friendship - A basic human need: One of the two reasons Paul Harris began Rotary in 1905. Rotarians believe while it is nice to be important, it is more important to be nice.
2.  Business Development- The second original reason for Rotary's beginning. Everyone needs to network. Rotary develops confidence and skill in public communication, and the opportunity to use it.
3.  Personal Growth- Membership in Rotary continues one's growth and education in human relations and personal development. Serving in Rotary positions is like a college education in Leadership.
4.  Fun-Rotary is fun. The club projects are fun. Social activities are fun. And the service is fun. Every Rotary club and district has parties and activities that provide social fun and camaraderie.
5. Youth Programs-Rotary provides one of the world's largest youth exchange programs; high school and college clubs for future Rotarians, and youth leadership programs.
