We had a fabulous time planting trees Wednesday morning in Rainbow Park alongside Rotarians from the PG Nechako Club, PG Rotary Club Downtown and Rotaract Club - Prince George. Around 200 pine seedlings that Industrial Forestry Service donated to us, replaced trees that were removed in the park due to the mountain pine beetle
outbreak. Thanks to the City of Prince George's Parks and Recreation department for its unwavering support for this project since planning began in December.
 
We appreciate the collaboration between the City and IFS as we strive to make a difference in our community with environmental sustainability initiatives like this one.

Please help us welcome Yellowhead Rotary's newest members:
 
L-R:  Janine Fraser, Valorie Radley, Kassi Doherty, Marnie Hamagami
 
Valorie Radley is joining the Rotary Club of Prince George Yellowhead under the classification of Equestrian Training. Valorie was a member of the Burns Lake Rotary Club before moving to Prince George. Now that she has established her routine, she is interested in getting involved in Rotary life once again. She was introduced to our club by Leslie Gilchrist.
 
Kassi Doherty is joining the Rotary Club of Prince George Yellowhead under the classification of Customer Service - Airline. She has told us that she is wanting to get more involved in giving back to her community and sees Rotary as a great way to do that. Her brother was a Rotary Youth Exchange student who went to Taiwan, so she already feels like Rotary family. 
 
Auctioning off our services reaps more rewards than just the money raised to help support Yellowhead Rotary community projects. The fun and banter in teaming up to deliver the goods was something we never forget.
 
Yellowhead Rotary Taste of India 2017 Recipiants include:  AimHi, Girl Guides of Prince George and Friends of Mgutwa.
Our club was able to help AimHi renovate a bathroom to be more user friendly, we also assisted in replacing the floor at the Girl Guides camp, and contributed to a new well in the community of Mgutwa Tanzania.  
 
 
 
AIFES 2017 is now history.  We had a great group of grade ten to twelves -28 in all.  They were all worn out after 4 long days, as were a few Rotarians.  We received very positive evaluations from the students who learned a lot about career choices, educational opportunities and the broad spectrum of forestry and environmental pursuits.  And they had a lot fun at the dinners, BBQ at the Helleyer,  and  bowling, all of which contributed to new found friendships.  Now works starts on making 2018 even better.
