We are a 100 strong and we make things happen in Kamloops. What else can we do as a Club to assist Seniors? assist Youth?
We have commitments such as the Food Drives, the PITStop Meals, Junior Achievement, and through individual members things like the Salvation Army Kettle and the BCLC Drive Home.
We can do more.
Daybreak Charter president and past district governor, Dr Glenn Martin (with his wife of 63 years, Mary Martin) was presented with his Paul Harris Fellow +5 at his new home in Berwick on the Park in Kamloops, BC on February 26, 2013. In attendance to honour this wonderful man were several past presidents, the current president and a few members. Following a nice luncheon, several speeches were given. Dr Martin expressed a hope to be declared an Honorary Life Member one day to which it was announced that the existing Board has so decreed at their last meeting. Through Dr Martin's vision and with 33 charter members, his legacy continues 27 years later, stronger and more vibrant than ever with a membership of 95.
