The Rotary meeting, Wednesday April 18th was a smaller but upbeat meeting.
Rotarians Randal and Casey conducted a short talk about the National
Geographic Crown of the Continent Geotourism Map Guide ,explaining the
concept and its origins. A workshop was held to discuss items and locations
of particular interest in our area that we as Fernie Rotary might nominate
for inclusion. This discussion detailed very interesting suggestions and
comments about our area and its history. It is always great to hear feedback
from fellow Rotarians like Sparling who have such a vast knowledge of our
area and our own Rotary. Thanks Randal and Casey for a fine workshop.
I was pleased to report that Dick Mulholland had called me to advise that he
had safely arrived in Ontario on Good Friday. He is currently staying with
his daughter but hopes to be in a senior’s apartment by the end of the
month. He reports that his health is better.
The Golf tournament is fast approaching. Please, everyone do your part to
obtain prize and auction items. Try to put a team together to participate
and have fun.
