Meeting Summary - July 13


Guest Speaker:          Rotarian Tara Ferguson

Introduced by:           Rotarian Paul Richer

Thanked by:               Rotarian Dick Vokins


New Rotarian Tara Ferguson gave her Vocational talk to the membership.  Tara spoke of her early childhood, schooling and extra circular activities, and then a very good overview of her vocation up to her present position as Manager of 17th Street Credit Union.   The vocational presentations are always informative and appreciated by the membership as it helps Rotarians know each other better and in a way that they would not normally be discussed in general conversations.  Thank you Tara for your presentation.


Presentation:   Leah Boyer, a Grade 11 student from Holy Rosary High School, gave a short presentation on her upcoming trip to China.  Leah has recently been selected as  Junior Team Canada Youth Ambassador on the upcoming Trade Mission to China in August, organized by Global Vision.  Leah had contacted the Rotary Club seeking partnership for this endeavor and the directors were in agreement to make a contribution to her.  Following her talk, President Wayde presented Leah with a cheque for $500.00 from the club to be allocated toward this lifetime opportunity and experience.


Presentation:  President Wayde presented Randy Aston with his third Paul Harris Fellow pin.  Congratulations Randy!


Auction Gift:   Donated by Dick Vokins and won by Dave McCaw.


Stg-At-Arms:   Peter Parkinson separated the Rotarians from their money by involving all the membership in a new question and answer game.  Thanks Peter - good idea and enjoyed by all.


DG Visit:   District Governor Tim Schilds will be making a visit to the club on Tuesday, July 28th  NO NOON MEETING ON MONDAY THE 27TH. 


Thought for the Day:   By working faithfully 8 hours a day you may eventually get to be a boss and work 12 hours a day.
