Pat Montani, M.S.M.  (December 30, 1949 - April 23, 2021)

I am honoured to have known and worked with this great man.  Pat was a unique individual to the say the least.  He was born in Hamilton, Ontario and moved to B.C. over 30 years ago.  Pat was a technology entrepreneur for over 40 years and loved hockey, biking, skiing, hunting and fishing.
 
 
 
It's that time of year to place your order for a beautiful hanging flower basket.  The Rotary Club of Pemberton has been selling hanging baskets to help beautify local Pemberton businesses and homes AND helps to fund our high school bursary program.
 
Please refer to order form (attached below) for more information
 
Deadline is April 26th
We began this project in the fall of 2016 and completed the work in the fall of 2017.
Better late than never to tell our story.....
 
The Rotary Club of Pemberton approached the Village of Pemberton in the fall of 2016, wanting to assist on the "One Mile Lake Master Plan" upgrades.  We committed to undertake two projects:  Upgrades to the TEEN DOCK enhancement at the DOG BEACH.

The Rotary Club of Pemberton's ANNUAL Flower Basket Program is in progress.
 
Every year we sell approximately 200 beautiful flower baskets to local businesses and residents.  All funds raised help us award bursaries to graduating Pemberton Secondary School  (PSS) students.  
 
Please take a look at the order form below with prices, delivery information etc.
 
Did you know that there are currently no palliative care beds available in the Sea to Sky Corridor for residents of Mt. Currie, Pemberton, Whistler and Squamish.  The Squamish Hospice Society paid a visit to all four Rotary Clubs in the Sea to Sky Corridor to tell us about this current situation and share their dream to create a hospice in our area. 
 
The Rotary Club of Pemberton has committed funds to this important initiative and will be presenting a cheque to the Hospice Society in the near future.  Stay tuned....
 
 
Seija Evans (1946 – 2018)
Rotary Club of Pemberton
Seija generously donated her time for Rotary projects.  She was always available for anything to do with Rotary in Pemberton and was involved in all of the fundraisers, socials and local projects. She was always full of joy and lifting peoples’ spirits wherever she went. We miss her dearly.
We are happy to report that Signal Hill have installed their new washer/dryer that we helped fund.
 
The thank you card and wonderful poem from the students is attached below.
WORLD POLIO DAY IS OCTOBER 24
Smallpox is the only human disease ever eradicated. Let’s make polio the second.
 
What is Polio?
 
Polio is a paralyzing and potentially fatal disease that still threatens children in some parts of the world. The poliovirus invades the nervous system and can cause total paralysis in a matter of hours. It can strike at any age but mainly affects children under five. Polio is incurable, but completely vaccine-preventable.
 
How close are we to ending Polio?
 
Today, there are only three countries that have never stopped transmission of the wild poliovirus: Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan.  These polio cases are the most difficult to prevent, due to factors including geographical isolation, poor public infrastructure, armed conflict and cultural barriers. Until polio is eradicated, all countries remain at risk of outbreaks.
 
Why is Rotary Pemberton involved?
 
Polio is a vaccine-preventable disease. No child has to suffer from Polio.  It is entirely vaccine-preventable.  Rotary Pemberton is part of the global Rotary initiative to end polio.  You can help too.
 
What can I do?
 
Thanks to a 2-to-1 match from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, every donation made to Rotary to end polio will be tripled. Donate today by visiting: endpolio.org/donate
The Rotary Club of Pemberton has been involved with the country of Lesotho, South Africa on various projects since 2009.  Check out the pictures in the album "Rotary Club of Pemberton's Involvement with Lesotho" for a snap shot of those projects.
 
Want to be involved, putting service above self for a country in need?  Join the Rotary Club of Pemberton!  We meet Wednesday mornings at 7:15am at the Pemberton Community Center - coffee provided!
Starting Wednesday July 13, every second Wednesday the Rotary Club of Pemberton will host our weekly meeting at the Pemberton Legion.  In an effort to encourage fellowship, build stronger relationships and become a more visible and personal presence in the community, the Club invites all Pembertonians to come out, meet our new President, Dave Den Duyf, and chat with us over a pint (or other beverage) about local and international Rotary projects!
 
Please see the Events Calendar for the specific dates we will be at the Legion.
The 2016 Pemberton and District Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Pemberton hosted another successful golf tournament.  This year teams hit the links at the Meadows at Pemberton, where the course was in amazing condition and the golfers in wonderful spirits!  Money raised during this annual fund raiser will be used to finance local projects.

 

 

 

The 11th Annual Rotary Club of Pemberton and Pemberton & District Chamber of Commerce 2016 Golf Tournament will be held at the Meadows at Pemberton on Friday June 24th, 2016.

On Wednesday March 23, MLA Jordan Sturdy will be speaking to the BC Liberal Governments Climate Change Leadership Plan.  Jordan is a long time Pemberton resident, a Past Mayor of Pemberton and a local farmer.  As MLA, Jordan was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Energy Literacy and the Environment to the Minister of Environment, is a member of the Cabinet Committee for Environment and Land Use, and serves as Chair of the Climate Leadership Team, working with members from non-governmental organizations, academia, industry, communities and First Nations to redefine B.C.’s low-carbon future.

Recognizing climate change is one of the greatest threats to the environmental health of the planet, Whistler Blackcomb is committed to one day reducing the environmental footprint of their operations to zero and believes in an “Every Step Counts” philosophy.   On March 16, 2016, Art Dejong will be speaking at our morning meeting about Whislter Blackcomb's response to climate change.

Liz Scott, Assistant District Governor for Rotary District 5040, attended our morning meeting on February 17, 2016 and presented us with a District Grant cheque and added another Paul Harris Pin to the lapel of Richard Megeny.

The Rotary Club of Pemberton are proud supporters of the Family Strengthening Program.  Our club donated $250 to  the program on April 20, 2015.  Additional support was offered on May 20th when several club members, Friends of Rotary and Interacters helped prepare the meal for their event.

Special thanks to John, Liz, Pat, Ted, Dave, Linda, Janis, James, Sandy, Rolande, Casey Lee, Rene and Sarah.
