It was presented to our President, Patti Lawn by the Rotary Club of Chilliwack President Michael Berger, Past President Doug Wickers and President Elect Shelley McDonnell.

The plaque reads that it was presented to us by the Rotary Club of Chilliwack and includes our date of charter.

Great fun was had at our Dec. 2 meeting. There was much love being felt and shared as members of the Chilliwack AFTER HOURS Rotary club wrote messages of thanks to members of the Canadian Armed Forces who will be away from their families during the holiday season. You can see from the smiles on our members faces that these cards of kindness had as much affect on our members as we hope they will have on the recipients.

Tis the season to share love and happiness with those in need.

The spirit of the season was upon us at our December 2nd club meeting. We invited all to join us in an evening of festivities and community service as we prepared gift bags for Ruth and Naomi's this Christmas. You can see by all the smiles that this evening of giving back brought a lot of good feelings to our hearts.

Thank you to all who made donations of items and/or cash donations.

 Allison Colthorp, Executive Director at Tourism Chilliwack spoke with us recently to explain that the Tourism board of directors have been hard at work creating a new brand for the City of Chilliwack.


In a collaboration with First Nations in recognition of reconciliation the spelling of Chilliwack is being changed to Ch’illiwack.

Allison brought a Chilliwack tee shirt and a hoodie with the new name and graphics for the club. They were auctioned off at the meeting with the proceeds going to The Rotary Foundation.
