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.
 
 
John Row receiving Paul Harris Plus One & Mary Row Receiving 
Paul Harris awards for their ongoing contributions to Rotary.  
 
Recently the Yellowhead Rotary Club of Prince George partnered with Debbie Dow and her team to drill 2 wells in Tanzania.  Debbie tells us the project has many dedicated team members who continue to work towards installation.   
 
Yellowhead Rotarian Jack Stevens representing our club by presenting the PAC President of Peden Hill School Irina Doering and Principal Sid Jawanda a cheque from our club supporting the literacy program.
 
 
Dear Rotarian Stevens:
Thank you for your previous support of our Foundation. When you give to Rotary, you fund locally led projects around the world. For example, in Cuernavaca, Mexico, gifts like yours help improve the lives of people with disabilities.

Why should you attend Conference 2016?

What's in it for you? Great fellowship and friendships is one of the most common reasons. This is also an excellent opportunity to get to know the members of your club better. Learn about successful and innovative  projects that your club can replicate at the Poster Session. Build lifelong friendships with people who share your vision for a better world. But with the lineup of exceptional speakers, unique breakout sessions, brilliant entertainment, and a fabulous resort full of all comforts and good food, the real question is
WHY NOT?

 

Adventure In Forestry Underway

jd littleDozens of students, primarily but not exclusively, from Prince George are taking part in an adventure. It’s an Adventure in Forestry and Environmental Studies program, put on by the Yellowhead Rotary. It’s one of many pulled together by different rotary clubs across the country.
Over the course of four days, the students will pay visits to a sawmill, a tree nursery, a pulp mill, the air tanker base, the Wood Innovation and Design Centre, CNC and UNBC to sample all of the different aspects of the industry.Roughly 700 students have gone through the program since it started locally in 1990

Rotarians don`t normally blow their horns, but when someone thanks us, what the heck!Image

Rotarian Sonica Kandola explains the "why" behind Taste of India, and the difference that Yellowhead Rotary is making in our community of Prince George and across the globe.
