In the main part of our program, it was great to welcome back to the club PP Karen Blewett who provided an overview of the club history document project, which went back to our Centennial year planning group in 2015.  A team of Rotarians spent a considerable period of time piecing together the club documents, photographs and projects.  Karen made special mention of PP Margie Booyens, Doug Fleming, Uwe Krickhahn and Brian Rothwell for their time and energy, as well as a number of others.  The history document is about 130 pages in length, loaded with graphics and photographs and ties into the Rotary Impact work done during Karen's year.
The finished document is a professional looking production, and PP Karen made a specific mention of the value of having the talents of a graphic designer, who works for her husband Sean at Community Futures - Entre Corp.  Hayley Gibson's work makes the finished product something to be proud of, and something that will endure for decades.  PP Dave Panabaker presented Hayley (virtually) a small token of thanks for all her work.  The crystal will be delivered this week through Sean's workplace.
President Mark thanked Karen, and everyone involved, for the outstanding job.  Secretary Doug Fleming advised that the Rotary Club Board will meet on Tuesday October 20th and will be discussion what formats the publication will take and how much each will cost.  A sign up sheet will be created and members can pay for whichever format and how many they wish.
