Farewell to Nikolas Cuello Carrizo of Chile

Niko presented an emotional and grateful speech to approximately thirty-seven members and guests at Rotary Parkview that was preceded by a group photo outside and above the hall.  He thanked his host parents Sandy &  Lucie Stephens, Gerald & Deb Weersink and Brent & Terry Shackleton.  He also praised our club counselor Rotarian Lucie and Youth Exchange officer Rotarian Mark for exceptional support for the year.  Niko spoke in front of a slide of his family and showed a slide presentation of his year in review.  Niko and President Stan exchanged Club banners and Rotarian Ray presented Niko the Canadian flag.  Rotarian Mark gave Niko some gifts including a Canada 150 mug and historical slate from our townhall.  The host families spoke on their impression of their hosting Niko all with excellent reports.  Some questions were asked one of which was, what were his plans.  He plans to go to medical school.  We are all happy to have Niko as part of our Rotary life.

   This Rotary year we saw changes to the criteria for earning the Literacy Award. Gone with the Zone Award
   and new challenges were presented with some mandatory criteria. Our club completed 22 Literacy activities
   by the end of January 2017 and we were recognized with the Gold Literacy Award.
  The Club Bulletin is based upon the judgment of a Bulletin Selection Committee. Although my work with The Blast e-Bulletin was
  recognized at the District Conference and was presented with the second place award, it was a collaborative effort with Charlie's
  work as we create two different bulletins for our membership's enjoyment.

In 2017-18, we’ll answer the question “What is Rotary?” with RI President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley’s theme, Rotary: Making a Difference. “Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”

We have featured one video and one PowerPoint presentation from those submitted by the Gr 7 & 8 students at DCVI Elementary and Holy Name of Mary schools. Scroll down the page for their entries. All of the entries have been posted under our site page titled "Canada 150 Voices of St. Marys" which can be found on the left side of our home page and newsletter.
