What a Great Night, Jester's, phenominal Anti-Bullying Presentation, Silent Auction and great appetizers from Jan's on the Beach paired with wines from Around the World supplied by Everything Wine, truly a night enjoyed by all that came. The exact total of funds raised is not known quite yet, but expected to be a fine number.
Thanks again to all who helped, and attended.

The Rotary Club of White Rock Millennium has received approval from Rotary International to change its name. The club is now the ROTARY CLUB OF SOUTH SURREY. The new name will better identify the club with the area it serves and may remove confusion the old name had with other clubs in the area. The South Surrey area has grown tremendously in the past few years and is now clearly identifiable, even the highway signs refer to it. The club’s locality now embraces both the southern portion of the City of Surrey and the adjacent City of White Rock. South Surrey is the area the club has always held its meetings and where the most of our members live and / or work.
This was another successful event. Awards were handed out and winners have plaques up in their business locations. Watch for the fifth annual coming up.
