Monica Kreise (left) spoke to the club about the Wellness Centre at the Salmon Arm High School.  Directed mainly at grades 11 and 12, the centre is  also open to students from  the Jackson campus.  Students are able to visit the Wellness Centre for weekly walk-in clinics, one-on-one counselling, mental health supports and other services provided by community partners.
On Monday 7 January, five Rotarians received Paul Harris Fellowship recognition. These five Rotarians' contributions to the Rotary Foundation  will support service projects both close to home and around the world.  During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. AG Norm Brown presented the pins.  We salute Rob Marshall, Heino Lilles, Isabel Reinertson, Winston Lee-Hai and Kari Wilkinson. 

Dear Friends in Rotary,
 
As the year comes to a close and the holiday season is upon us, we take this time to send warm wishes to our Canadian Rotary partners.
 
We at the Guatemala Literacy Project are thankful for your support and generous contributions to Global Grant #1872636. Canadian Rotary clubs are truly making a difference by providing rural Guatemalan children with a quality education and brighter future removed from a life of poverty.
 
Thank you, Canadian Rotarians, for your support in 2018; to we wish you all a happy holiday season and a joyful and healthy New Year.
 
Sincerely,
 
Joe Berninger
