The Rotary Club of Selkirk held a “Special Rotary Club of Selkirk Meeting” on Saturday, April 8, at the Selkirk Golf and Country Club when we celebrated our “80th Anniversary of Service to Humanity” in our community, region and internationally .
At the special meeting we celebrated Selkirk Rotary’s contributions to the Triple S Community and highlighted our exciting new major health care project to fundraise for very much needed “Echocardiogram Equipment” for our New Selkirk Regional Hospital.  Our Keynote Speaker for the event was a very dynamic speaker, “Dr. Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair”,
who spoke on his youth growing up in Selkirk and his Rotary experiences in RYLA and his youth exchange in South Africa and what Rotary meant to him.
Two Paul Harris Fellows were presented to commemorate our 80th Anniversary.
The first was to Rene Gauthier, a tireless community volunteer
who was instrumental in the creation of the Soup Kitchen and the
Homeless Shelter among other community achievements.
The second was to Jamie Sinclair to recognize his international
work in reconciliation and human rights.
Making the presentations was our president Marcia Bilkoski'
Many other notable figures have been named as Paul Harris Fellows, including U.S. President Jimmy Carter, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, U.S. astronaut James Lovell, UN Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, and Jonas Salk.
