Tuesday, October 24 -  Today we make our District Governor visit to the Rotary Club of Ladner,  District 5040's Outstanding Club of the Year for 2016 - 2017!  Todays meeting is at the Coast Hotel in Tsawwassen as their regular venue has a special event on and cannot accommodate us this week.  There is an excellent turnout of members and we have a very interactive meeting.  This is World Polio Day so we celebrate that occasion with all of us sporting a purple pinkie (symbolizing vaccination).   This year is a very special year for this club as they are celebrating their 60th Anniversary.
The Rotary Club of Ladner is very active locally, and their major accomplishment is the ground breaking for their largest ever community project - the new Ladner Splash Park - a $600,000 project in partnership with the City of Delta.  The club has many other community support projects, and also sponsors an active Interact club at Delta Secondary.   Internationally, they are active on an ongoing basis with projects in both Laos and Chile.
Following the meeting, we join a group of Rotarians and visit Memorial Park in Ladner, where the Splash park and other upgrades will be.   Congratulations to President Ulf Ottho and all the Rotarians in this club for their great work.
