Welcome to the Rotary Year, ‘Light Up Rotary’.  It will be my great pleasure to serve as your District Governor.

Rotary International President Gary Huang of Taiwan has brought the concept of ‘Light Up Rotary,” to his Rotary year. Light up Rotary is a reference to a phrase, attributed to Confucius.  President Gary is quoted as saying, “Sometimes I call Confucius the world's first Rotarian, because even though he died 2,500 years before Rotary was founded, his ideas are very much Rotary ideas. And one of the things he said was: “Better to light a candle than sit and curse the darkness.”

This new Rotary year has seen Jeanette and I begin our club and board visits.  After having a wonderful time visiting Rossland and Castlegar Sunrise 2000 clubs, we headed across the border to the Tri-Cities area of Washington State.


We visited six clubs in the Tri-Cities area, then Walla Walla Sunrise, Colfax and Pullman.  They are all active, vibrant clubs of various sizes, all involved in community or international projects.  The Tri-Cities clubs also collaborate on one of the largest fund raisers in the District, the annual Duck Race.  We have been overwhelmed by the hospitality, generosity, fellowship and fun at club meetings. 

It's has not been all Rotary work though!   Jeanette and I have been to several barbecues, visited local wineries, hiked up Badger Mountain, toured the new Reach center and the Hanford "B" reactor.  The social activities have helped us to get a flavour of each area and to get to better know the Rotarians and their partners.  This has been a joyful experience.

With this terrific start to the Rotary year, we are looking forward to visiting the other fifty clubs and boards.

District Governor Elect, Mike Dalessi, shared opening remarks at RLYA on June 28th, 2014 and shared a picture of Counsellors Sheila Hart and Mike Cassidy.  There were 49 young adult campers participating plus the staff. Despite the thunder and pouring rain on opening day, everyone had a fabulous and fun time. ​ Does anyone else have some pictures?

Congratulations are in order to recognize Heidi Romich, your Assistant Governor in Area 3 and a member of Cranbrook Rotary Club.

Heidi repurposed her restaurant to become both 'The Heid Out' and 'Fisher Peak Brewing Co.'  Now she has been named the 'Business Person of the Year' by the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce. 

Drop by and meet Heidi and try out the "Ultimate Burger".  You will be amazed by both.
