The Feb. 17th online meeting of the Kimberley Rotary Club was highlighted by a presentation from the Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Club.  It was great to hear how the Sunrise club has been doing and hear and see two of their recent projects.
 
President Lynnette Wray gave an introduction with history of the club and then introduced club member Steve Weatherall who gave a Power Point presentation on the club's amazing locomotive project.
 
 
Steve explained how the club raised funds for the project and showed in a great Power Point presentation stages of the project.  He explained with photos showing club members working on many of the different aspects of the project.  The original "old locomotive" was prepared for an amazing facelift paint job and surrounding features were installed including a short wall and the water feature shown above.  Steve explained the plans ahead for adding landscaping in the surrounding area.
It is impossible to miss this great Rotary project when you drive the highway through Cranbrook.
 
The program was then turn over to Melanie McFarlane who shared many of the aspects of the club's involvement in the We-Bike program.
 
This was another very well presented presentation explaining how Melanie first got involved in the program and all the amazing steps the club has taken since.  Check out the photo above to see how to get trained to become a coach and bring this program to your area.
 
Mention was also made of other programs the Sunrise Club has.  Kimberley Rotary always comments that helping with their annual (when there aren't forest fires nearby or COVID) Kootenay Gran Fondo event is one of our club's favorite projects. 
 
It was great to see how these two projects have grown and see what our fellow Rotarians are doing.  Thanks Cranbrook Sunrise.
 
Kimberley Rotary will be sharing with the Sunrise Club on Tuesday Feb. 23rd.
