Induction of New Member Don Kawano
Introduced by Maria, Don was formerly in Rotary in Cranbrook and was the club president in 2013/14. He attended GESS from 1959-1965 and went to law school at UBC beginning his legal career in Dawson Creek. In 1985, He took a short sabbatical from law (referring to it as his MBA program) when he established Lake Country Orchards with a partner. He and his wife Linda now reside in Cadence at The Lakes in a house which is only a mile away from the farm where he grew up. Wendy Caban is his Rotary club sponsor. President Kayla made a short induction speech inviting Don to rejoin Rotary through our club.  Don accepted his club pin virtually and received virtual handshakes all around as he became our newest member!
Club 2021/22 Budget and Club Financial Statements for 2020/21 reviewed by our club Treasurer Jean=Marc. JM moved to approve financial statements for 2021-22 as presented; seconded by Sandy. Some discussion followed. JM offered access to the books to members interested. Kayla called for votes – both carried. A HUGE thank you to JM for all he does for our club! Go Habs!!!
