Stories from our club!
 
 
Rotarians took turns manning a table in the City Centre Mall for the Love Kitimat evening.  People came out to support local businesses and see what they had to offer.  Food, beer, kids zone.  A busy, happy evening for all.  We sold tickets for our Wine Tasting with the help of Kitimat Valley Housing Society's members.   Two smiling Lindas are pictured above Linda Thomson and Linda Campbell.  With a little persuasion, a passerby held up one of the mask , just getting into the Mardi Gras mood.
 
November 24th, a day to be remembered for those of us stopping by Delta King Place to deliver cookies for the residents and put up Christmas decorations. Maryann gave Santa a call at the North Pole.  Could he make it?  His answer was sure.  Big smiles from both of them for this picture.
 
There was lots of laughter, standing on tip toes, humming a Christmas hummm, and nibbling on goodies. 
 
 
Residents were smiling as they appreciated the trays of cheese and cold cuts sent along by Meghan, and the fruit and veggies tray from Maryann.  The rest of us saw the table finished off with sweets. 
 
Jo, Gareen and Maryann packed little Christmas bags Saturday full to the brim with our home made best loved Christmas cookies for all 17 residents. 
 
 
And what a special feeling it was for us to see delight as Santa passed them out calling each resident by name. 
 
 
 
It was heartwarming  to hear stories about Christmas' past, and have the background Christmas music. 
 
 
We wish our Delta King friends the very happiest of Christmas.
 
The gym at Riverlodge was overflowing with children brimming with excitement at the The District of Kitimat's Halloween Howl.  Photo credit for the above picture goes to the Northern Sentinel's editor, Gerry Leibel.  Hundreds and children and some parents were out for it, all dressed in their Halloween costumes.  Eleanor, Linda and Meghan added to the atmosphere and there's Jon in the background applauding Hula Pumpkin Toss tossers.
 
Rotarians and guests were happy to start off our day on October 17 to meet at the Chalet for breakfast with a particularly knowledgeable woman, Isabel Mackenzie.  Isabel heads up the work done by the Office of the Seniors Advocate for British Columbia.  The office is in Victoria.  We learned how they look at five key areas when it comes to seniors: health care, housing, income support, personal support and transportation.  They are ready to listen to and record any seniors concerns.  For us in the north, there is an appreciation when it comes to the significant differences we experience to those in the lower mainland.  The report to the Ministry of Health yearly, more frequently in matters of concern.  They also provide information; sending inquiries in the right direction when areas of concern come their way.
