Speakers at our first in-person meeting of the new year were our current remaining charter member Mac Campbell and a former charter member Jerry MacPhee who is currently a Kiwanis member of the Sarnia Club.   We were pleased to be inducting 5 of our 7 new members from the previous year.  Mac and Jerry shared with the club the history of the formation of the club in 1962 along with many memories of the accomplishments of the club over the early years in serving our community.  So great to be spending time together.
 
Foundation Chair Mike Henry (R) presenting Ian Harper with a Paul Harris Fellow.  

The Paul Harris Fellow program recognizes individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.

The honor was established in 1957 to show appreciation for contributions that support our Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or an approved Foundation grant.

The first meeting of the new year was a fantastic success with 30 of our members attending the change over meeting to celebrate the year that was and to introduce the new year and look forward to the opportunities for the coming year.
To make the night special, as we were still hesitant to have in person meetings, the Public Relations committee put together fun bags that were hand delivered to each member prior to the zoom meeting. President Michael provided a powerpoint of our year's happenings and Pres-Elect Aurelio welcomed in the new year as we looked forward to a great 2021-22.

At our change over event on July 6 the club was pleased to recognize two of our members for their dedication and work to the club.
