Iqaluit Rotarians celebrate 25th anniversary
Congratulations Iqaluit Rotarians on your 25th anniversary, Sept. 26, 2003.
I am proud to have been your charter president in 1978, and even more proud that your members continue to lend a hand to the Iqaluit community. Your continued desire to make life better for the elders and the youth of Iqaluit through your annual Elders Dinner, Christmas Baskets, Crisis Line support, Scouts and Guides sponsorship, Project DARE, and the Start-Right, Stay-Right program all show clearly your concern for families, an area dear to the heart of current Rotary International president Jonathan Majiyagbe.
Many Iqaluit families have benefited through your hundreds of hours of fundraising. To that end, I also congratulate your community for their never-ending support.
The Rotary Club of Iqaluit is known for its ability to raise more funds, per capita, than most other clubs in Canada and the United States This is no small feat and shows that the Rotarians are hard at work with community support to enable them to provide “Service Above Self,” which Rotary demands of its members.
I encourage you to keep the family of Rotary alive and look forward to hearing more about your plans for the 100th anniversary of Rotary International.
