Narain has now been in Sweden since mid Sept and has his blog up and running.  It makes for interesting reading and Narain's sense of humour definitely shines through!  Please take some time to see what our outbound student is learning and experiencing overseas.

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.

This is the team that makes sure the room is set up with all the important stuff to run our meetings. Once the meeting is over, they are the ones that put the stuff away again. Watch out, they are also looking for the most innovative way to fine you also, so be on your guard. These folks also look after guests and do the Happy Bucks.

  • Those scheduled for the desk are asked to be there by 6:15 am to set up and remain following the meeting to close up the desk
  • If there are any meetings during your turn at the desk, you will be expected to gather the attendance supplies and have them at the designated meeting place
  • It is the responsibility of the scheduled member to find a replacement if they can not attend
