REC for Kids conducted a bicycle safety check for riders at the Surrey Rotary Club's Bike Day Ride at Holland Park. Fred Wickens, our club's Rotary Foundation Chair, engaged with a cycling enthusiast about the importance of bike safety.


Two post-secondary students were awarded scholarships from our club's Community Scholarship Program. Congratulations to Misha M. from Elgin Park Secondary and Angelina S. from Panorama Ridge Secondary. The club also heard from Rotary member Keith about climate change. Keith presented a very thorough report full of important information.


The Business Trade Show, hosted by the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce at the Peace Arch Curling Club, was a resounding success. The event featured 26 local business booths, a photo booth, delicious food, a Kids Zone, a scavenger hunt, live music, and chances to win gift baskets. The White Rock Rotary booth sold books and promoted their upcoming BOOK SALE. It was a fantastic opportunity to network and explore what’s driving our local economy forward.
