Rotary Theme for March 2020 

CELEBRATE ROTARY WATER AND SANITATION MONTH!

Promote World Water Day
 
World Water Day on 22 March is an opportunity to learn about Rotary’s commitment to provide clean water and sanitation.
During March, Rotary Water and Sanitation Month, many Rotary clubs around the world will be celebrating our commitment to create healthier communities by supplying clean water and sanitation facilities to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
 
 
District Conference 2020
Please note the District Conference has been cancelled. All club members should have received the following message March 16:
 
It is with deep regret that I must inform you that Conference Chair Kevin Wood and I have decided that we must cancel the Rotary District 5050 Conference this year.
 
The government of BC has banned all gatherings over 250 people and we will have over 250 people at our conference. The government has recommended not having gatherings of more than 50 people. 
 
There are now over 100 cases of the coronavirus in BC and health experts are expecting this number to increase.  As you may know, at this time in both the United States and Canada, the goal is ‘flatten the curve’ so as not to overwhelm the health care system. 
 
We want to ensure all Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors and their partners and children are kept safe.
 
We would like to thank the Conference Committee for all its hard and dedicated work over the past two years to put on what we believe would have been an excellent conference with great attendance including over 60 new conference attendees.  We would also like to thank our generous sponsors who supported the conference with $20,000.  
 
We will start to process refunds soon but please give us some time to do so. 
 
We will be meeting with the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel to determine the best way to cancel room bookings so please do not contact the hotel.   For those who booked rooms at other hotels, please contact them directly.
 
And please be safe and stay healthy.
 
At your Rotary Service,
 
Brad
