October 22 - What a glorious day to have our DG and his wife visiting us in Kitimat! 



District Governor Garry Shearer and his wife Colleen spent the afternoon with our President Cheryl Rumley.  We toured the Rotary high spots, the Soccer Field (our concession stand), The Rod and Gun Club (Rotary Kitchen), the Gazebos at the Chamber and finished off at our Rotary Peace Rock.  We also drove out to Kitamaat Village, stopped to see Kitimat Works in the distance then back to the Chalet for a very short rest time before Rotarians arrived for our meeting and dinner.  Past DG Art Erasmus and his wife Lesley, our Area Governor, and Rotary peace committee chair Eleanor Kendell, joined them for lunch and the afternoon. Garry shared our District’s vision for this year and one of his personal stories.  He then presented Joann Hildebrandt with a Paul Harris fellow on behalf of our club.  President Cheryl presented Garry with a Four Way Test print after Lynda Rocha described the meaning of the artist’s rendering of each of the test and what it means in the Haisla ‘language’.  It was an evening filled with good fellowship.  Many thanks go to Garry for travelling north to meet with us.
