This past week saw a birthday party for our YEX student Milo at Scott & Diane Riley’s (Milo’s current hosts), the club gave Milo a Whistler Storm (Whistler High School sports team names) hoody for his birthday. The Riley’s also have a couple of other international students. Thank you to the Riley’s for their hospitality.
At our meeting this week we had new member Sarah Symmes give her classification talk, (kind of a misnomer as there are no longer classifications in Rotary, so more a brief history of Sarah).
A very brief summation of Sarah’s talk; born and raised in Ontario, was a Rotary Exchange student to Brazil, went to Ryerson University studying (please correct my memory Sarah) hotel management/recreation? Lived in Austria for several years (snow sports seem to be a theme for Sarah) and moved to Whistler almost a year ago. Trust me, Sarah’s talk was far more interesting than my summation, just shows you need to come to meetings!!!
We also had Louise B visit us again (guest of Hannah’s).
PRIZES NEEDED – we need raffle items for the McElhanney staff organized raffle that we, Rotary, are the sole beneficiaries of. Last year, this entirely McElhanney staff funded raffle raised approximately $2,500 for our club. They organize a few prizes and we contribute one “summer ” and one “winter” bundle of goodies (hotel stays, dinners, letter tickets etc).
