On September 14-16th the six Kalispell area Rotary clubs hosted the 80th Peace Park Assembly.  Attending from the Okotoks club were president Sandi Kennedy and past president Marvin Pawlivsky.  Great fun and fellowship was had by all who attended.  Seeing the nearly 20 youth exchange students and being able to socialize with them was a highlight of the weekend.  Other activities included golfing, hiking, and tours and shopping at local attractions and businesses in Kalispell.  A great thought provoking presentation was given on Saturday night by Al Jubitz, who spoke about advancing world peace through Rotary.  He presented ideas on what we (Rotary) could do to build a world beyond war.  The weekend ended Sunday in Glacier National Park to commemorate the world’s first International Peace Park with the Assembly’s traditional “handshake across the border” ceremony between Canadian and American Rotarians.
