Program for May 29 reported by Jerry McLean

President Tav opened the 43rd meeting of the year by calling on
Tom Lidkea to play O Canada and David Maxwell to say grace

Visiting Rotarians & Guests, introduced by Tricia Timmermans:

Cindy Hayworth, Abaco, Bahamas, Property Management;
Wendie Hogarth, Financial.
Jane Gibson was the guest of Dallas,
Duncan Malcolm & Tara Carman from the Black Press were guests of the Club;
Dr. Wolf-Dieter Schopper was a guest of Hans O.


Irene Davie was given no time to levy fines (she could have imposed a general fine of $1) so she went straight to a few happy dollars. President Tav presented $10 for “a very good week: he represented the Club at a dinner with the Mayor, then the next day whipped David Maxwell
at the Uplands and then over the week-end survived fear, cold and wet in the Swiftsure to help win his crew’s class. Tom Croft put in $5 for the five weeks he will be away.
President Tav won the draw to a resounding chorus of “boos”, but he donated the $19 back to the Club.


Will Carter still needed two volunteers for the O.B. Tea Party on Saturday night. Let’s hopoe he got them.

Rotarian of the Year: President Tav wants your votes by June 5. See the e-mail from Leslie. All members except the Executive and Board are eligible. Previous Rotarians of the Year are Neil Madsen (2004), Lorna Curtis (2005) and Foan Firkins (2006), so don’t waste your votes on them!

Social Event: Lorna announced the great lawn bowling contest is scheduled for July 8.

Vocational Talks:

Jack Petrie then chaired the rest of the meeting.which was dedicated to vocational talks. Jack gave an introduction extolling the accomplishments of the women members of the Oak Bay Rotary Club. He noted the presence of the reporter and photographer from the Oak Bay News (Black Press). Further introductions were given by Heather and Lorna who mentioned that it was the 10th anniversary of their joining Rotary. One might also add that both are Past-Presidents of the Club.

The following is a summary of the talks:

Donna Carrigan – Donna spoke a bit about her job and her most recent endeavour which is running the Gobi Desert Race on behalf of Team Gobi Canada. Donna also spoke of about one of the main reasons of joining Rotary was to give service back to the communities. She also demonstrated her training by dragging Tom Croft around, he being a substitute for a tire.

Jan Stirling- spoke a lot about her upbringing including her significant musical accomplishments. Jan went on to say that her main impetus in joining Rotary was to get involved in the community. She then played a song from a poem of significance.
Joan Peggs – spoke a bit to us about her life. She talked about the significant travelling she did as a child and otherwise. She also discussed her main career accomplishments which were teaching for a number of years and a couple of the bed and breakfasts that she has owned and run. She now owns and manages the Woodbury Apartments (see her ad below).


Leslie Rogers-Warnock- spoke a bit about how it was important for her to join Rotary to get more connected to the community. Leslie also discussed her interests which were travel, renovations to their house and running.


Overall it was very good to hear about something of the lives of four of our fellow members.

To conclude, President Tav presented Joe Prentice with his bookmark for exemplary service in hosting the Brazilian Group Study Exchange Group.
