“Glenn Dobie has been instrumental in organizing a very successful Gran Fondo cycling event on the North Star Rails to Trails from Cranbrook to Kimberley, B.C. All proceeds from this prestigious event are directed to trail enhancement and other Rotary projects. He has been a champion of using local trails to promote healthy living."
 
Glenn's Comments:
It is amazing the reach that our Gran Fondo has travelled.  To have been selected by Senator Nancy-Greene Raine to receive a medal was quite humbling to say the least. I explained to Nancy that the recognition truly belongs to the Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Club. I was quite surprised and thrilled to meet numerous people who have heard about the Kootenay Rockies Gran Fondo.
 
The Senate 150th Anniversary Medal celebrates the achievements of Canadians who have made significant contributions to their community and commemorates Canada's 150th anniversary.
 
The presentation was last Thursday in the Senate Chambers in Ottawa.
 
Congratulations Glenn on the well deserved recognition.!
