CVR supports TAPS Kitchen Upgrade Project
 
Creston Valley Rotary Club recently announced a substantial donation to the kitchen upgrade project of TAPS, now located in the Rotacrest Hall at the Rec Centre.  During the COVID-19 restrictions, TAPS has adapted and "pivoted" to creatively adjust in person activities and yet continue to meet their mandate in serving seniors who want to remain independent in the face of challenges which make them vulnerable to isolation, loneliness and a decreased quality of life.  
 
THANK YOU to the TAPS staff and volunteers who make this program one-of-kind and a shining example of the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self".  We are pleased to again be able to financially support this service to our Creston Valley seniors.
Creston Valley Rotary Club was charted by Rotary International on July 21, 1992 with 27 Charter Members in Creston, B. C.
At the regular club meeting July 28, 2020, the club heard from J. Michael Wigen, current member and son of Jack Wigen, the first President of CVR in 1992.  Also speaking about the beginning of the club were original Charter Members, John Huscroft and Casey Messinger.
In recognition of their "Service Above Self" in the community and within the Creston Valley Rotary Club, Michael, John, and Casey were presented with Paul Harris Fellow plaques and pins.  All three of these current club members have long standing family and personal relationships with the club, and their individual accomplishments are too number to list completely...except to say, that the recognition is well deserved.
Congratulations J. Michael Wigen, John Huscroft, and Casey Messinger, the latest Paul Harris Fellows of CVR.
 
 
Temporary meeting location - July 28, 2020 @ 7:00 am.
Rotary Pavilion in Centennial Park.
All attending will be expected to follow COVID-19 PROTOCOLS in place.

Creston Valley Rotary Announces Paul Harris Recognition
 
Paul Percy Harris (April 19, 1868 – January 27, 1947) was a Chicago, Illinois, attorney. He founded the club that became the humanitarian organisation Rotary International in 1905.
Continuing the legacy of our founder, the Paul Harris Fellow program recognizes individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.
The honour was established in 1957 to show appreciation for contributions that support our Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or an approved Foundation grant.
 
Creston Valley Rotary Club is pleased to announce that DARCY ELLIOTT has been recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow in appreciation for his contributions in community leadership and service,  and in particular, his in-kind and financial support of our annual Wood Sales fundraiser known as the  “Block Party”.  Darcy Elliott personally, and through his business, Hidden Valley Wood Fibre Ltd., is an examples of the many citizens of this community whose service and contributions often go unnoticed.  We are pleased and proud to make this announcement today…the formal presentation will be made to Darcy Elliott at our next club meeting on Tuesday, July 21, 2020,  in the Rotary Pavilion in Centennial Park.

16 July 2020
Creston Valley Rotary Club kicked off another year with the Installation of Officers meeting VIRTUALLY on ZOOM,  June 30, 2020.  We were challenged in an address from Past District Governor, Allan Davis, to consider the incredible challenges facing our country and community as OPPORTUNITIES for service.  The motto chosen by our Rotary International President, ROTARY OPENS OPPORTUNITIES will be our challenge for this new year.
 
As President of CVR, I look forward to another great year of CVR serving the Creston Valley.  Our Projects Committee, Membership Committee and International Committee are already in action, and we will be making some announcements soon about donations and service projects in the valley. 
 
July 14, 2020 - Z00M - Creston Valley Rotary Club will meet again virtually by ZOOM.  Contact our club president for your personal invitation via link on website home page. 
 
July 21, 2020 - IN-PERSON -We plan to hold our first in-person meeting since suspension in mid-March due to the COVID crisis.  We will be meeting outdoors but in the Rotary Pavilion located in Centennial Park at our usual time of 7:00 AM...guests welcome.
