The generous members of our business community set the tone for the race by entering their business ducks for display prior to the running of the great race.
 
 
Then our 5th Annual Duck Race went off on a cold and windy Mother's Day. Over the side they went
 
 
And then down the mighty South Branch they raced
 
 
Followed by the outriders to the Finish Line
 
 
The big winning duck numbers were First-1122, Second-1068, and Third-1302. $20 winners were ducks 77, 264, 293, 406, 421, 429, 706, 954, 967, 988, 1071, 1109, 1158, 1242, 1306, 1308, 1313, 1323
 

 
 
Our club members and their guests enjoyed an evening of fun and fellowship at our annual Casino Night. There were games to be played
 
 
 
and fellowship to be shared.
 
 

 
 
Our speaker this evening was Beverly Illauq. In a very interesting presentation, Beverly went through a comparison of the northern Innu and indiginous peoples below the tree line as well as the effects of treaties and how people were gathered for both groups.
 
 
 
Her thought provoking presentation allowed our members to reflect on a number of social issues.
 

 
 
A major focus of our club is youth. Tonight we were pleased to welcome Best of Fair winner Jasmine Friedrich-Yap and the Rotary Science Fair organizer, teacher Matthew Wilson. Jasmine brought her well researched and documented project with her, displayed and explained it and her results to the club. It was very motivating to see the quality of the project that this young individual attained.
 

 
 
Tonight our club was visited by our District Governor, Rotarian Claude LaLiberté. DG Claude was interested in meeting our members and not giving the typical speech that no one would remember. He touched on District matters and had a very open Q&A session. He concluded his visit with a presentation to what he called the least recognized and appreciated member of the club - the club secretary. Pictured below Secretary Ben, DG Claude, and e-Secretary Dave.

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...

Representatives from Rotary clubs worldwide will gather in Chicago 10-15 April to consider changes to the policies that guide Rotary International and its member clubs.  Many of this year’s proposed changes are designed to increase membership by giving clubs greater flexibility in the timing and the nature of their meetings.
