Golden Rotary AGM coming up

The Rotary Club of Golden is welcoming the whole community to come out to their Annual General Meeting, and see what the club is all about.

The Rotary Club of Golden is welcoming the whole community to come out to their Annual General Meeting, and see what the club is all about.

“Everyone is welcome,” said Greg Ehman, president of the club. “This is a great opportunity to come out and see what Rotary is about, and an opportunity to meet the incoming executive.”

The AGM will be introducing the new executive, from the president all the way down, as well as installing three of their new members. They will also be bringing back an older tradition of paying homage to non-Rotarians who are making a difference in their communities.

“One of the things we’re really excited about, is we’re getting back into recognizing community leaders who have really done a lot over the years,” said Ehman.

“We’re going to be recognizing three community leaders from the area – Orlando Pecora, Garry Bjarnason, and Roger Ross, who have all done a huge amount for the community.”

The Rotary Club of Golden has gotten away from that in the past, but are really excited about bringing it back year after year.

“There’s a huge amount of volunteerism in Golden. The selection committee had a tough time, there were a lot of great options, and they settled on three good ones,” said Ehman.

“We think it’s very important to recognize those people.”

The AGM is also a good time to hear about the projects that Rotary has been working on in the past year, and are hoping to accomplish in the future.

The AGM is taking place at the Royal Canadian Legion on Thursday, June 20. Kickin Thyme Catering will be providing the dinner ($25 per person). The doors open at 5:15, with the meeting beginning at 6 p.m.
