At the Feb 11 meeting Ross Harris and Aaron Parker along with Fiona Harris and Phil Wright put on a presentation about their trip to India. Hosted by the Rotary Club of Agra Tajmahal, their pictures and commentary  helped the club members to visualize the NIDS program at a small Indian village in northern India, a village with a population of 6,669 but only 1000 homes.  They also visited schools, a cadet program, the Taj Mahal, Jaipur, and commented on the vast differences between conditions in India and here at home.  
Project Amigo, a nonprofit society based in Colima, Mexico, transforms the lives of disadvantaged Mexican children and youth by enabling and supporting their continuing education. It is affiliated with Rotary Clubs throughout North America. Our club has made a commitment to Project Amigo to sponsor two students.
 
"Research  shows that young people who graduate high school enjoy better outcomes in all areas of their lives--health, relationships and financial well-being and are better able to make choices that positively affect themselves, their families and their communities. Oftentimes the only thing standing in the way of a high school diploma for our young people is the ability to cover the basic costs of transportation, uniforms and school supplies. Your donation will make sure a young person has what he or she needs to be successful in school--bus money, books, school supplies, uniforms, a hot lunch, and weekly support through Project Amigo‚Äôs Homework Club.

Longtime member Gary Carder presented his bio to the club on Monday. He told  the fascinating story of his life working with Fisheries & Oceans for 25 years in Northern Canada, where he collected data on Arctic Char caught by Inuit in or around various communities in the NWT and Nunavut. At the end of the presentation, Dan Hudson presented Gary with his 20 year membership pin. 
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.
