Thursday morning, Dec. 8, was a big meeting at Castlegar Sunshine 2000 Rotary Club for me: I was inducted as a new Rotarian. It was exciting to finally get in after being nominated last month. I was welcomed by each member with a handshake.

In other Rotary news, the club made $1,544.18 from the smoked salmon sales. The money will go towards many projects.

The club held their Christmas dinner on Sunday night at Genelle Hall. Many spouses, children, and grand-children joined the festivities which included a delicious turkey dinner with all the fixings, Christmas carols, and even a visit from Santa.

This Thursday is the Spouse social meeting. Next Thursday, Dec. 22, the weekly meeting is cancelled.

The 2012-13 election of officers was conducted. Ron Ross has been named president, while Fred Hughes will act as Secretary and Amy Anderson will be treasurer.
