Feature - Why I am a Rotarian - George Ho

My parents, sister and I immigrated to Canada in June 1969 from Hong Kong because of the political uncertainties and rioting since 1967.  We landed in Vancouver and spent 2 weeks staying in a guest room of the Gastown Butler Hotel.


My dad started knocking on doors of construction companies in downtown Vancouver the second week.  He was a successful estimator back home.  My mom soon found a job at a sewing factory in Gastown.


I have been practicing retail pharmacy for over forty years which I enjoyed thoroughly.  I find fulfillment and satisfaction helping customers or patients especially the elderly.  I was a franchise owner with Shoppers Drug Mart for 23 years, Dawson Creek for 14 years and Chilliwack for 9 years.


I joined the DC Kiwanis club in 1989 and totally enjoyed the social interaction and fellowship as well as serving the community with service projects. 


I attended a Rotary district conference in October 2015 as a guest. I was very impressed with the impact of Rotary both globally and locally. For Example, End Polio Now, Rise against Hunger, Starfish, Rotary stadium, Rotary Manor, Shelter Box , Love Guatemala, Wheelchairs Guatemala etc.


"Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves”.


“Each day our members pour their passion, integrity and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions."  


That is the main reason why I wanted to be a Rotarian.

On March 5th, our board voted unanimously in favour of partnering with our other Abbotsford Rotary clubs, the Chilliwack club, and potentially, several other clubs in a wheelchair project to Guatemala for 2019 and 2020. The proposed project is intended to resource a local manufacturer in Antigua, Guatemala to not only manufacture chairs, but also provide ongoing maintenance for chairs already distributed. The project’s ultimate goal is to build sustainability into the manufacturing of wheelchairs for a local Guatemala company. An integral part of this two-year project will be active participation by members of our club in 2020, as a way of marking our club’s 70th anniversary.
Start planning your vacation time now for early 2020. More details to come.
