THE FUN OF GIVING BACK IN ACTION!

Rotary recognizes skills and experience and encourages club members to practice “Service Above Self” by finding creative ways to use our talents to support projects and help those in need. Most of all, we are encouraged to HAVE FUN… in Action!

At the Shawnigan Lake Community Association’s “Fall Festival & Market” on Sunday, October 22nd, at the community centre, we were pleased to offer the opportunity to decorate a pumpkin-shaped gingerbread cookie for $2 to benefit the CMS Mill Bay Food Bank. This activity was sponsored by Kim’s Gingerbread and directed by Waldorf-trained Dinah Clark, both members of Shawnigan’s own Rotary club. Our community participants of all ages delighted us with their creations and surpassed all expectations in terms of donations. Together, we raised $196.50 for the Food Bank! Thank you so much, everyone!

“Vocational Service calls on us to empower others by using our unique skills and expertise to address community needs and help others discover new professional opportunities and interests.” – https://rotaryserviceblog.org/2018/01/09/5-ways-to-inspire-through-vocational-service/

Vocational designations in Rotary can be as eclectic as a baker, administrator, designer, teacher, engineer, landscaper, realtor, secretary, stay-at-home parent – and also anyone retired! There is strength and mutual inspiration from this diversity of membership.

Maybe a grassroots Rotary volunteering adventure is in your future! Consider planting a commitment to GIVING BACK with your contributions of kindness for years to come. As Canada’s first Rotary EcoClub, we plan for FUN activities promoting environmental stewardship – in community beautification, restoration, and gardening initiatives.

Plus, there is much to discover for yourself by being a part of Rotary’s friendships around the world. Learn from great examples of vocational service elsewhere, and infuse your thinking with that inspiration! If you’re ready for selfless service, Shawnigan Rotary EcoClub membership is warmly welcomed. Let us help connect you!
