    Acting President Pat Dell called on Peter Peters to introduce Guest Speaker Bob Durston, currently the District Rotary Foundation Chair (DRFC), a responsibility he has held since July 2014. We learned that Bob was invited to join the Rotary Club of Neepawa in February 1976. His commitment and service to Rotary in his Club, Community, District 5550 and beyond over these 44 plus years is impressive. Bob was President of his Club in 1985-86 and had a 2nd opportunity to fill the Presidential role a decade later. He began his stint as Club Secretary in 2002 and is serving in this 19th year
    Bob served as District Short Term Youth Exchange Chair for 11 years, followed by 7 years as an Assistant Governor and is currently serving in his 3rd three year term as DRFC which now includes the role of District Grants Administrator. A supporter of all things Rotary, Bob is a Major Donor and a Benefactor of The Rotary Foundation.
    Bob was welcomed as friend of Regina Eastview having been a consistent attender of our weekly ZOOM meetings since April. In his opening remarks he commended the Club for the consistent contributions to PolioPlus and the Annual Programs Fund (APF) of The Rotary Foundation (TRF). Contributions to PolioPlus during the October 2020 challenge along with the Club's annual commitment ensures the Club will receive the annual Rotary International Certificate of Appreciation for contributing more than $1,500.00 US. Bob then shared power point slides which indicated that over the 4 year period beginning in 2016-2017, our members contributed $20,919.80 US to the Annual Programs Fund. Over those same years Regina Eastview applied for and received District and Global Grants which total of $83,821.00 US. Regina Eastview is most fortunate we contributed $21,000 and were able to access nearly $83,000. This did not include the $30,200.00 the Government of Canada contributed to one of Eastview's projects as the result of an agreement TRF Canada had with the Canadian Government.
    Bob concluded his presentation by commending the Club for its commitment to the service at the local and international levels. He indicated Regina Eastview was important to the success of the District's Ripple Effect Program and expressed the District's appreciation for the leadership role.
Thank you Bob Durston for sharing your knowledge and passion
for all things connected to The Rotary Foundation.
Bob Durston, DRFC

Philosopher's Corner


"One tree can start a forest
One smile can begin a friendship
One hand can lift a soul
One word can frame a goal
One candle can wipe out darkness
One laugh can conquer gloom
One hope can raise your spirits
One touch can show you care
One life can make the difference
