Discovering spirit of giving
Surrey Now December 4, 2012

I've heard many times before that to whom much is given, much is expected. Being one of today's typical carefree 15-year-old girls, and oftentimes admittedly a bit engulfed by my own sense of entitlement, I've never fully understood the meaning of this idea - not until now.
Just recently, four youth including myself were given the wonderful opportunity of accompanying the Semiahmoo Rotary Club to Hermosillo, Mexico for the delivery of 115 wheelchairs to children with disabilities. As cliché as it sounds, the four-day venture truly opened my eyes to the harsh reality that does exist outside the borders of home here in Surrey, having witnessed it first-hand. I've come to recognize our guilty tendency as kids to have blind spots in our view of life while being blessed to grow up in a developed country like Canada. We are stuck behind these impediments until we encounter something that can free us.

After more than 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are now very close to eradicating polio, to making history and to changing the world. We are so close to ending polio—
all we need is you.

The Rotary Club of Semiahmoo has partnered with the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation to sponsor one of the eight Birthing Rooms at the Peace Arch Hospital.

This $150,000 commitment spans several years so we can leave a legacy for Rotary and have a significantly improved birthing experience for the Doctors, Moms and Dads of the 800 babies that are delivered in the hospital annually.

The existing ward which is being replaced was built in the 1960s. Shown here is the manager of maternity services in the new birthing room.

The Semiahmoo Rotary Club has partnered with the City of Surrey to create the Recreational Picnic Shelter adjacent to the Rotary Field House in South Surrey Athletic Park. The Picnic Shelter was built to commemorate the 20th Anniversary (1989-2009) of the Semiahmoo Rotary Club.
