New Interact Club in Richmond
This is incredible, the Rotary Club of Richmond just installed two new members, today we also sponsored a new Interact Club, the Interact Club of Richmond Secondary. Thank you  Dave Rogers, our Youth Service Chair for his hard work. District Governor Lorne was doing the installation. 
Interact is one of Rotary Youth program, the Interact clubs are high school based for young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self.  
Peace Conversation
A Peace Conversation, about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, was our challenge last Wednesday.
It was unfortunate some members missed today's meeting, it was quite impactful.  20 members attended the conversation, the main facilitator went through the guidelines.  We divided into 3 breakout groups, each participant shared their thoughts among their own group. Then we got back together, with each group presenting a summary of their discussion. 
As one might imagine the discussions were diverse.  What were the "take aways", what did we learn?  In short, we needed more time to expand on our thoughts and develop actionable plans.  You yourself, probably saw the title of this event and wondered about what that meant from your perspective.  Getting together is the first step.  More people, more thoughts, and more concepts and more actions.  Every member matters....does that phrase sound familiar?  We are Rotary.  You and I, we bring the ideas, the energy and the resources needed to make good things happen.  Yes, Diversity matters and so does equity and inclusion.  All are brought to bear to advance Peace in our Club, in our District, in our Zone and throughout the world.  Help, contribute, participate, get involved....that's how things work.
Honour and Remember
The Royal Canadian Legion encourages all Canadians to observe a moment of silence on November 11, to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve. 
2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the Remembrance Poppy in Canada.  In July of 1921 the Great War Veterans Association (which in 1925 would unify with other Veteran groups to form the Canadian Legion) adopted the Poppy as the flower of Remembrance.
