As an outcome of the collaborative effort among Rotary members from the Skeena Valley and Prince Rupert, demonstrating strong community and inter-club relationships in the Rotary network Rotary Club of Kitimat has inducted five new members. This growth in membership helps restore the Kitimat club’s ability to serve the community as it has done over many years. It also demonstrates the collective commitment to Rotary's mission of humanitarian service and ethical leadership and active participation from the community and neighbouring clubs. District Governor Shirley-Pat Gale, who inducted the new members on May 21st, expressed her enthusiasm and congratulations to the new members, emphasizing the importance of Rotary's role in community service and global peace-building. 

Interim president Gareen Ball and president-elect Manon Joice, who led the club’s revitalization efforts, said this boost in membership holds promise for a more vibrant future.

Manon says, "We are thrilled with the turnout and the growing interest in Rotary’s activities here in Kitimat. This event not only welcomed new members into our fold but also strengthened the bonds with fellow Rotarians from the Skeena Valley and Prince Rupert Clubs."

Manon added that the Rotary Club of Kitimat looked forward to building on this momentum, continuing to foster community service, high ethical standards, and goodwill throughout the region. The club remains dedicated to living out the Rotary motto, "Service Above Self," and making a positive impact both locally and globally.
