Monday's meeting was called to attention by Club Service Director David Thompson standing in for President Sheila who is apparently wisely avoiding our -30 weather in the tropics!
As is always a highlight we inducted our newest member, Dr. Umaru Ahmadu-Ali, a respected physician from NW Calgary. Associate member Linda Pitter, who has been instrumental in the Jamaica project with Paul Ramikie, also "upgraded" to a full membership.
Look forward to working with both of you!
Our guest speaker was Mike Debroski, a retired financial planner who founded "Give for Generations" on the subject of planned giving. Mike gave an interesting presentation on the many tax advantages and strategies members can use to donate to various charities including our own Foundation.
Monday's meeting will be deferred for the Family Day holiday-see you all on February 25!!
