Emilie is a charming young woman and she would love to spend some time with you.  You don't need anything unusual to do with her.  She would be just as happy having a meal with you, visiting, playing board games with your family or anything else as simple as these.  Check this week's minutes for her cell number.

Anna provided the following photos from the International Women's Christmas party.

Emilie, Bob & Brenda braved the cold weather to see the Holiday Train.
After, she and some Rotarians and their partners ate yule log and other goodies.

The Christmas party was a success.  It was great to see Art Wallace in his lit-up tie which he created himself.  A few years back we bestowed a Paul Harris on Art for all he does in the community.
Joanne and Michele had a pre-meal laugh.  Michele, thanks for organizing the party!
Ilene & Alex Miles weren't just there for the turkey supper.  They were there for Alex to receive his Paul Harris +4 Fellowship.

Dale presented Colleen Hagel of the Cadets with a cheque for $300 for the help of the Cadets at the Lobsterfest.  Colleen was particularly touched when two chocolate and nut trays were auctioned off later with that money also donated to the Cadets.
Those receiving Paul Harris Fellowships were Vic Wiebe, Alex Miles (+4), & Terry Chapelsky (2).  Ron Milleker, who passed away earlier this year, also achieved one.
Mal Barber & Tom Stephenson were the auctioneers.
Brenda King & Barb Hart were sparkly ... and a little out of focus!
