Greetings from the Rotary Club of Nanaimo Daybreak.
Our 2017-2018 Rotary Year President, Nathan Thornton, was transferred to Calgary in January. As President-Elect I stepped up as President earlier than anticipated. It has been both a pleasure and a challenge. Fortunately, we have a wonderful team of Rotarians at Daybreak who have made the transition as seamless as possible.
We are a breakfast club which meets every Wednesday morning at 7:00 am. We are an exuberant and fun-loving group of people who are very welcoming.
When we ask people to come to a Rotary meeting the usual response is: “What is Rotary?” However, that’s a hard question to answer in just a few words. It can mean different things to different Rotarians, and many things to the world in general.
Rotary Daybreak is a mixture of men and women from all walks of life. We have business owners, professionals, working people, parents, grandparents and retirees. What we have in common is a desire to build relationships that result in goals, plans and successful projects, which help to improve the lives of many - in our community and the world community. We care about one another. We care about our community. And we care about what happens globally.
We are part of a leadership organization that starts at the Club level, is part of a District which spans the whole of Vancouver Island and into Western Washington, which is part of a Zone made up of fourteen Districts in the western US and Canada. Which expands to 34 zones worldwide. We are 33,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries making up 1.2 million people who are connected and work together to make a difference.
We invite you to become part of what Rotary is.
Evelyn Boegh, President
Rotary Daybreak Nanaimo 2018-2019
