President’s Comment – 5 Feb 17

Greetings all from VAnCouver, Canada

We have had a great week skiing at Sun Peaks, Canada. Carolyn and I have been attending a seminar for radiographers and radiation therapists, “Canada Imaging” as well as enjoying the skiing here. One of the other participants in the seminar,  Nicole Oates is a member of the Rotary Club of Port Macquarie Sunrise, D9650. It is a small world in Rotary!!

View from Sun Peaks Base – Friday 4 February – SNOW!!

We have returned to stay last night with friends in Vancouver before travelling to Jackson Hole, Wyoming today.


I am not sure you are aware of DG Michael Milston’s  challenge to all Clubs to support his hair growing efforts by raising funds for Polio Plus.

This is his message to us.

“Since opening the challenge, my hair proceeded to grow as has the fund. I reported that we were $3,200 into our $26K target. WELL, GUESS WHAT??

 The fundraising is growing quicker than my hair – you have collectively contributed almost $10,500! that is over three times the starting level. And I know there are more than half the Clubs yet to contribute.

I thought you might like to see how ugly I’m getting – no you don’t have to agree so readily.”


          In the beginning                              Mid January                                  Today

Please support DG Michael by donating to our Service Account.
