President Teresa hosted our Club Business Meeting – beginning with a report that Area Presidents are looking for someone to organize Athletic Awards for local high school students.  Earth Day, Thu, Apr 22nd will be noted by several of our members joining Silver Star Mountain Resort staff doing a one-hour local creek cleanup – meet in the parking area in the lane between Kal Tire Place & Red Top, at 7:30am.  Penny will be hosting a fund-raising meeting tomorrow.  Dave Hoyte believes our May 15th Garage Sale will be postponed, due to Covid restrictions.  Similarly, Dr Craig Goplen is unsure whether the September Father Daughter Ball will run this year.  As in-person presentations of our scholarships to Grade 12 grads are unlikely, Jim Kanester is asking for a member to write an encouraging note to each of our six recipients.  Dominik Dlouhy noted the Morning Star newspaper printed a nice article & picture of our RCMP volunteer of the year.  PDG Dr Peter Schulz joined us, to present a short video promoting the Zone 28 & 32 Rotary Foundation Virtual Gala & Fundraiser, 5 to 6pm PST, Wed, May 12th.  A variety of speakers & entertainers are lined up.  Tickets are US$110.  Peter noted TRF donations are up 6% this Rotary year, but requests for help have doubled.  For more info  Welcome | Zones 28 & 32 (clubrunner.ca) Our meeting finished with short updates from all attendees, about how they’re enjoying Spring.
