Tuesday, October 10 -  The Rotary Club of Burnaby Metrotown is our first club visit in the Metro Vancouver area and we join the club at their meeting place, the Burnaby Neighbourhood House.   The Club partners with the Neighbourhood House on many projects, including their well known Coats for Kids project - and a brand new truck identified for the project is parked out front.  

President Simone Brandl leads the meeting and we have a good interactive discussion with the Rotarians.  While we are there, Scotiabank presents them a cheque towards their good community work.   This club is very active, and their major fundraiser is their WineFest.  They are one of the Burnaby clubs that led the Fraser Foreshore Park Fitness Circuit project that was recently unveiled,    They also have an active literacy project at Maywood School where they provide books and read with the students, and they are also a sponsor club for the Burnaby Rotaract Club.   Our District Governor Nominee, Bala Naidoo, comes from this club.
