January 7th 2020 Library Donation

On January 7th , our first General Meeting of 2020, at the cozy Whistler Museum a $ 15,000.00 cheque was presented to Library Director Elizabeth Tracy. The fundraising team led by "show runner" Library Board Chair Bevin Health Ansley (shown on the far left) and Whistler Rotary's own Ken Martin (shown on the far right) worked above and beyond to achieve a fine financial outcome for the Wonder Lab project for the Whistler Library. The Blues at Dusty's Event was held in September and well received by the community.
  • Jumping backwards like a receding hair ( hare) line Friday January 3, our Rotary Club of Whistler 2020 working committee group held a meeting at the TD Board Room to establish a list of Events we will undertake in 2020. Some items may be added however we have a good start on this years plans.
     
  • Our first Board Meeting of the Rotary Club of Whistler was held on Thursday January 9th 2020. Unfortunately our Secretary Gill Forester had broken her collar bone and was missed by the group. 
  • January 14th at the Whistler Museum Erika Durlacher, a cherished member of our club, will present to us about her determined safari and soulful climb up the 19,340 foot or 5895 meter Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

Our Library friends couldn't make our meeting so David Malaher stepped up quickly to provide a presentation of his and Rosemarie's recent trip down the Mississippi and Ohio river system. David touched on the various ports of call, the challenges of a river cruise in flood water conditions, an overview and history of the cotton industry, and some key points in the history of the region.

Murray Wood took the floor on the subject of the Rotary International Foundation. November is Foundation month. Murray outlined the various ways the Foundation works and how our Rotary International donations are respected world-wide for going straight to the cause without a large amount of overhead, however a lot of organizing from within and matching up with clubs in countries that need our help makes this work.

Chairperson Claire Moses of the newly renamed Whistler Community Foundation formerly the CFOW spoke to the AM Rotary meeting. Shown with long time Rotarian and speaker organizer Wendell Moore, Claire outlined how the overall role the Investment structure works and the management of the WCF Foundation Investments.
