Rotary Citation, followed by Quesnel's Business Excellence Awards!
Two awards in one week!
Any Rotarian will tell you we don't do what we do to win awards but we are nonetheless honoured in being recognized.
First, Rotary Internation awarded us the 2020-21 Rotary Citation
Rotary clubs can earn a Rotary Citation for achieving goals that strengthen Rotary and their club. Goals include increasing club membership, developing sustainable service projects, giving to The Rotary Foundation, and building awareness of Rotary in our community. Ours is a very social club - we enjoy getting together every Thursday and our best service is delivered during our fundraising events, and the COVID-19 pandemic put a lid on all of that! Evenso, President Diane Rogers encouraged us to find other ways to serve, to focus on what we could do rather that what we couldn't, and deservedly accepted our certificate from Assistant Governor Sandra Lewis at our lunchtime meeting of October 21st.
A few days before, October 16th, 2021-22 Presdent Bev Haluschak attended the 2021 Business Excellence Awards evening hosted by Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce...and we won the category in which we had been nominated, Social Leadership!
Thanks to West Fraser Timber for sponsoring the Social Leadership Award
