Past District Governor Ken Arthurs passed away in July 2017.  Ken was a dedicated member of the Salmon Arm Rotary Club and held several positions giving a true meaning to the Rotary motto “Service Above Self”. 
In 1996/97, as Governor of Rotary International District 5060, Ken was instrumental with fellow Rotarians in raising $1,000,000 towards the cost of  building the Southern Interior Rotary Lodge associated with the B.C. Cancer Agency in Kelowna. Ken's estate left a final gift of $1,000 to the Rotary Foundation, and that gift was received in April.
