Welcome to the New Year
Happy New Year!  Our year kicked off with a nice lunch at Marriott and our special visitors today, MP Alice Wong with her husband Enoch, RI Director Dean Rohrs and District Membership Chair Tom Smith.  It's always great that Alice makes time to visit us when her schedule allows.  
RI Director Dean Rohrs is Past President of the Burnaby club and also a Past District Governor of District 5040.  Her schedule is a whirlwind of travel to many countries in her role as RI Director.  She spoke to us today of some of the aspects of being a RI Director and the enormous responsibility of Rotary directors as they try to assist Rotarians around the world.  There are 17 RI Directors, and in the normal workings of Rotary Clubs, one would rarely, if ever, get to meet a Rotary Director, let alone, have one to speak and to ask questions.  If only there was more time to spend with her and ask questions, to learn more about the inner workings of this worldwide organization and all the various undertakings of the 1.3 million Rotarians around the world.  There will be another opportunity, join us at our Chinese New Year gala on Feb 1st when RI Director Dean will be joining us to bring in the Year of the Rooster.
