Sergeant-at-Arms:

Mark Bedford
reminded us of the Garage Sale on July 7. Need good saleable items! (It was too late to fine David Maxwell for overlooking Lynnes’s certificate and presenting it later.)

He then fined Heather for confusing him about when the International Committee meets; our three new members were fined $2 each to make them feel at home; Brian Lamb for being in period costume with no watch; John Edgell for pushing another member into line for lunch; and finally, Foster, whom we are glad to see, for not signing in.

There were numerous happy $, mumbled at the back of the room which your aged editor could not hear but he did hear Tricia who was pleased that members were using the new Blog, and Jack who has moved to a new mansion(?) in Rockland. Vicki Pitt won the draw but drew black.

Announcements:

David Maxwell announced:

(1) The Installation Dinner, June 26. Sign up NOW!

(2) Golf Tournament, Fri. Aug. 14. He and Lori need golfers, hole sponsors and good prizes. Last year realized $22,000 and they hope for $30,000 this year.

(3) New Paul Harris Society members: Jack presented certificates and pins to Joan Peggs, Barbara Bristol and (belatedly) Lynne Murray. These members are the latest among the seven from the Club who have pledged $1,000 US each year.

Heather reminded us to sign up for the

Lessons and Games!!

Guest Speakers: Introduced by David Philip.

Rob Smith, Oak Bay Police Community Liaison Office (until recently) and Jill Vasko, one of two Oak Bay High School students whom he escorted to Ottawa (the other, not present, was Danielle Jay. They reported on the YouCan Conference, held in Ottawa, March 7-11. It was attended by 500 high school students. YouCan is a non-profit organization sponsored by the Federal Govt. to teach and promote youth-led initiatives in non-violent conflict resolution. Apparently the attendees were worked very hard, with two 3-hour training sessions each day and evenings filled with exotic cultural events show-casing Canada’s diverse make-up. Rob found it interesting that this was a yuouth-led conference with even the leaders, teachers and M.C.s being young people. There was some relief for Rob and his two students, including skating on the Rideau Canal, a visit to the House of Commons and to the War Museum, which they found especially moving in its depiction of the causes and horrors of war. Rob aslso thanked the Club for financial support.

The aim of our two delegates is to introduce a program into the OBHS which will, for example, bring the perpetrator and the victim of an altercation or other incident together with a peer as the mediator. To this end, there will be four day training programs in which the group participating will be made up of students who are already peer counsellors. A series of slides detailed the issues which will be taken up, with suggested remedies. They ranged from the relatively trivial to matters verging on the criminal, but the details are too complex
to summarize here.

Finally, Jill read from a slide presentation of the Red Ridinghood story, told from the point of view of the maligned wolf, to illustrate that there are two sides to every story.

The speakers were thanked by Jack Petrie.


Brian recognized David Maxwell, Foundation Chair, for increasing funds raised from $16,000 last year to $24,000 this year.
