Happy New Year.
We welcome Maddie Roy to the Executive. 
It's our intention to have President-nominee Maddie Roy
and President-elect Jacinthe join us soon to explain their vision for this club.
I hope your holiday break was as joyful, fun-filled, family-oriented, and sunny as the one my wife and I experienced in Florida.
Till next week ...
        Secretary's Thoughts
Happy New Year everyone - hope you all had a wonderful holiday break and were able to enjoy some good times with your family members.
We can look forward to the next six months of our current Rotary Year under President Chris's leadership. 
Please remember to keep your attendance up to date including all of your make-ups.   And please let me know if you need any help doing this on Club Runner. 

The Rotary Canada Magazine

By Jacinthe Paillé, President-Elect

Four months a year, more specifically in January, April, July, and October, Rotary publishes a slim magazine with Rotary news from Canada. You may have seen the latest edition (January 2020) with a beautiful photo of a mountain covered in snow.

If you flip to the inside front cover, you will find a list of names; these names are those of Canadian Rotarians who are part of the magazine’s Advisory Board. Their goal is to find Rotarians in Canadian clubs who will write articles for the magazine, and thus share some news with the whole country.

You will notice a familiar name there: Dean Rohrs, past RI Vice-President, who was at our district’s last conference in Clayton, NY. You may find another even more familiar name just above Dean’s: mine! As a French-speaking Rotarian living in the province of Quebec, my role is to find articles in French, since every issue of Rotary Canada contains a text in the French language. 

I have only been part of the Advisory Board for a bit more than a year, but I truly enjoy looking for people to write something for the magazine. When I receive the text, I proofread it and make sure to get some photos to accompany it. I send the text a few months before it comes out in print.

If you know of anyone who is part of a French-speaking club, and/or someone who can write in French about a special event their club did, or perhaps a life-changing Rotary experience, etc., let me know!

Maddie's Musings
Happy New Year to my fellow Passport Rotarians!
I hope that you enjoyed the holiday season and are eager to continue engaging with our communities through Rotary. As the President-nominee, I am taking this time to better understand and prepare for my role. I look forward to working with you all to grow our club and the impact that it has!
