Aloha District 5020 Rotarians!   It is with extreme Joy that I greet you, this brand-new Rotary Year, as your District Governor.  It is a time to look forward and to plan your connections with each other, with your community and with the world.  But let’s also value the year that is ending as I know former District Governor Craig is so appreciative of the things you accomplished, and he wants to see your continued success.

ROTARY CLUB OF COMOX INCOMING PRESIDENT MESSAGE
By Charlene Davis
 
A great Rotarian and a very dear friend of mine told me a few years ago that Rotary changed her life.  I didn’t totally understand the significance of that statement at the time, but I’m getting closer now.  Most, if not all of us join Rotary to make a difference, to give back and to make a positive change in the world around us. We succeed spectacularly, we do change the world, but maybe we don’t always realize that Rotary changes us, in profound ways.

TIME TO TAKE OUT THE TRASH!
 
By Diana Matsuda
 
The Rotary Club of Parksville AM has decided it is time to take out the trash on Little Mountain. Over the years, the base of this beautiful pristine area of Parksville has become a dumping ground, either because the dumpers didn’t want to pay for proper disposal of their garbage or because they thought it would be exciting to throw something large over a 100 foot cliff.
