January 7th 2020 Library Donation

On January 7th , our first General Meeting of 2020, at the cozy Whistler Museum a $ 15,000.00 cheque was presented to Library Director Elizabeth Tracy. The fundraising team led by "show runner" Library Board Chair Bevin Health Ansley (shown on the far left) and Whistler Rotary's own Ken Martin (shown on the far right) worked above and beyond to achieve a fine financial outcome for the Wonder Lab project for the Whistler Library. The Blues at Dusty's Event was held in September and well received by the community.
  • Jumping backwards like a receding hair ( hare) line Friday January 3, our Rotary Club of Whistler 2020 working committee group held a meeting at the TD Board Room to establish a list of Events we will undertake in 2020. Some items may be added however we have a good start on this years plans.
     
  • Our first Board Meeting of the Rotary Club of Whistler was held on Thursday January 9th 2020. Unfortunately our Secretary Gill Forester had broken her collar bone and was missed by the group. 
  • January 14th at the Whistler Museum Erika Durlacher, a cherished member of our club, will present to us about her determined safari and soulful climb up the 19,340 foot or 5895 meter Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

Festive Holiday Salutations from The Rotary Club of Whistler 

 
 
Our December meetings at the Whistler Museum started off with David Malaher taking the place of Library Director Elizabeth Tracy who was flu bound on December 3rd. After a tasty snack presented by Secretary Gill Forester, David stepped right up and gave a fascinating review of his spring, summer
and early fall travels on the east coast of the US 
 
The Rotary Club of Whistler Annual General Meeting took place on December 10th. the meeting opened with an interesting bio from new member David Steven who will bring to us a tide of organizational and planning ability. Following Dave the meeting opened nominations for the Board of Directors  for 2020- 2021. Eight members were presented and approved. Nominations closed. At the Rotary year end before June 30th our new Board will be sworn in prior to or at this beginning of the new 2020 Rotary Year.
Treasurer Ken Martin gave a presentation of our financial status including donations, investments and the operating budget however not the final delivery as more final details of 2019 first quarter are forthcoming from our accountants.
  
The December 15th Holiday Feast at the Whistler Golf Club was greatly enjoyed. The food presented by The Venue Chef's Ryan and Melissa was fantastic. It was said by many - they had not tasted better or more tender turkey. Appetites were whetted by a rowdy game of Secret Santa featuring items from the Whistler Re-Use-It. Laughter was one of the great sauces of the evening! Our guest from Mumbai,  Kaustav Ghosh managed to arrive in time, by bus, to enjoy the feast and is shown with President elect Gill Forester exchanging flags. Kaustav is moving to Vancouver however is from a Rotary Club in Mumbai. 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
December 19 a faithful group of Rotary Club of Whistler members journeyed to the Skatin Community School in the Head of the Lake area near Skookumchuk 58 kilometers north of Mount Currie along a very challenging bumpy road to deliver gifts and goodies from the WCSS and our Club. 
 

After a Holiday Hiatus our next meeting will be January 7th 2020 and Board Meeting January 9th 2020
