Ken Martin District 5040 Rotarian of the Year

Perhaps you have already heard. During the District 5040 Conference Gala our President Ken Martin was awarded as the 2017/18 Rotarian of the year.  Congratulations Ken. Certainly a well deserved award in recognition of your tremendous impact on our Club and District. Very well done! We are very very proud of both your and Anette's Rotary accomplishments.
A few Rotary Club of Whistler members were on hand to help Ken and Anette celebrate.  Again congratulations Ken and our Club is really proud of what you achieved.

Wait there's more!

It was a good weekend for Ken.  In addition to winning the 2017/18 Rotarian of the Year award Ken was named as a District 5040 Director. Congratulations again Ken and we know you will do a great job.

Subaru Ironman Canada

Again the Rotary Club of Whistler has been asked to head up the Athlete Check in function. Subaru Ironman Canada is a major event for Whistler and it's a major fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Whistler.  Please mark your calendars, wake the neighbours and bring your friends.  This year Athlete Check in occurs over three days. (Jul 26,27 and 28). Check in is where athletes pick up all the necessary paperwork and race articles necessary to compete.  It is a great opportunity to meet the people who will be competing in the event.  Those who have worked the event in previous years will note that, in general, these athletes are a pretty friendly bunch and Athlete Check in is a good experience.
To register you must go to the Subaru Ironman Canada Volunteer Registration Site and select one or more of the Athlete Check In shifts.  Volunteer registration is not correctly set up on the Ironman site quite yet so please use the link.
