September is Basic Education and Literacy Month. The Rotary Club of Lions Gate supports the One To One Literacy Program. This year we will once again be purchasing a box of reading materials for the program to expand to another school here on the North Shore. Do you have any ideas for programs that would promote literacy here or around the world? We are always looking for ideas from our members and from the public for programs we could consider supporting.
- Take some time this month to think about “Membership Matters”. You could invite a friend, talk to your neighbour, bring along a family member or introduce an acquaintance to the fellowship, fun and good works of Rotary. Is there something you can do to support the new club in our District, Vancouver Mountainview? What about attending a meeting or supporting the charter dinner on Saturday October 28?
