Congratulations to Past District Governor, Garry Hollingshead, on being named Rotarian of the Month for May. Garry is a dedicated member of the Rotary Club of Summerland. Whether it be rounding up members to help tidy up Adam's Bird Sanctuary, volunteering time at our Summerland Rotary Sunday Market or coordinating our clubs efforts at the Granfondo race each summer, Garry consistently proves Rotary's motto of "Service above Self". Garry is a great inspiration and leader within the Rotary Club of Summerland and we thank you for everything that you do!
 
Congratulations, Garry!
Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us for some model railway fun at Ann Kemp's place on Tuesday evening. Close to 40 Rotarians, spouses and friends joined us for the special social.
 
A message from Ann:

Several Rotarians have not seen John’s Model Railway and have asked if they could see it.  Unfortunately John was not well enough during the last year or so to manage to run it and do all the intricate things that it requires to make it run.

John's model railway layout is large and you will see it as John left it.  A project like this is never finished and if it is, you have to find something to change!! John built it all himself and replicates an area in Wiltshire, England. His stand alone model of the Trout Creek bridge (on the end wall) was built after John had scrambled around taking about 100 photos from differtiny stuffes. Each tiny strut he cut by hand. I would never have that kind of patience. A friend of ours from the coast, Tony, will be at the social and will have a couple of trains running. ~ Ann

Thank you to Ann Kemp for hosting this special gathering and supplying the drinks. A great time was had by all!

An note from Devon O'Toole, Inbound Rotary Exchange Student Coordinator/Bus Trip Organizer with District 5060:

Greetings,

I would like to spend a little time to write to you all and say a couple of words. I am writing you today regarding the recent past Youth Exchange Bus trip. On behalf of the 23 students, chaperones this grand adventure would not be possible with out the continues and generosity support of our clubs in our District 5060. The support you give to this program is tremendous. If it were arranging billets for the kids, to organizing a meal(s) or if you club helped pay for one of the activities on the trip the Inbounds of 2017-18 and the District Committee THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!!!! Once again this trip for the students was filled full of great memories, laughter and tears of joy. For some of them it was the last time they might see their exchange classmates before heading home in June and July. If it were not for your clubs help it would make it much more difficult to pull this trip off. Please share this with your clubs.

With warm Regards,

Devon O'Toole
