Jan 6, 2020 Bulletin

Opening/Chair: President Lech acted as chair today and he asked the group to join him in the singing of O Canada. This was followed by a moment of personal reflection. 
Visitors/Guests:  Kyle Andrews was the guest of Rotarian Jim Harman.
Speaker: In lieu of a speaker today, President Lech had the tables of Rotarians do a "get to know your fellow Rotarians" exercise.  This consisted of discussing at the tables on questions such as "What was your favourite or weirdest Christmas gift" or "What was the most memorable or interesting moment of the holiday season".  Lots of great stories were told and there was much laughter.
Member Health: No report
