OF INTEREST

The Kimberley Rotary Club paid us a visit in January.  A number of their members joined us for lunch.  Pat Barclay, President, told us that their club had lost a number of members so they have reduced their meeting schedule to try to attract new members. 
They still meet at noon on Wednesdays at “Canoes and Brews” (formally BJs pub).
Their new schedule for meeting is: 
1st Wednesday each month a Business meeting (Directors plus all regular members who can attend) – still counts as a make up for guests.
2nd and 4th Wednesday each month a regular meeting with a guest speaker.
3rd (and 5th Wednesday when they occur) we plan a work party event, a fundraiser, a social, or a visit to a business or another club.   
We haven't heard much about Shelter Box lately, so here is a link to a video update on operations from their Headquarters. Very interesting and informative!  LINK
