Water Filters in Laos and Adopt a Village

We held our meeting yesterday in the back room of Earl’s, thank you Earl’s for accommodating us on short notice.  Visiting Rotarians were Mike Storey and Dawn Rutledge from the Ladner club, also our guest speakers, see below, and Mike Kaburda from White Rock who is a regular visitor to our club.  We also had Laura Penney and Sage visit again.

An update to last weeks update, we are having our inaugural Board Meeting July 25th , Beth has very graciously offered her place for the meeting, thank you Beth, all members encouraged to attend.

Also another update to last weeks update, it has now been confirmed that the float, that was a combined effort of the two clubs, for the CANADA DAY parade won 1st place as the best float.  WOO HOO!!

Although at this time it doesn’t seem to affect us here in Whistler I think it is worth noting for those that have not heard, Rotary International has amended their constitutional documents to include Rotaract Clubs as a membership type of Rotary International – Here is the link to the announcement.

Our guest speakers, who may have introduced us to a possible International project.  With that statement I put the Board on notice for possible discussion July 25th.

Mike Storey and Dawn spoke of “Adopt a Village In Laos” which is supplying water filters to rural villages in Laos.  See brochure at bottom of email or attached.  I believe the brochure explains much better than I.
