Who doesn’t love a good game of dodgeball – especially when it’s to support a fantastic local cause? Our Community Service committee hosted a Dodgeball Tournament at Pitt River Middle School on Friday, May 8 to help raise money for Tri-Cities KidSport, so that all children in the Tri-Cities can enjoy the fun and benefits of organized sports.
Overall, nearly 100 participants came together to raise a grand total of $1,168.36 for the cause! Thank you to all of our players for coming out and supporting us #SoAllKidsCanPlay!

Members of our club spent the afternoon of Saturday, March 22 visiting with seniors at Hawthorne Centre in Port Coquitlam. In addition to serving tea and snacks, we also made them cards to ring in the spring season, and our very own Jessica entertained them by playing the violin. Thank you to Chris M., Kevin, Brianne and Rasmeet for also volunteering their time!
Often we have so much to be thankful for during the Thanksgiving season that we forget about others in our community who may be less fortunate. This year, our members were determined to spend the long weekend doing something valuable for the community, and we were very fortunate invited by the Rotary Club of Port Coquitlam Centennial to help out with a Thanksgiving lunch held in Port Coquitlam in partnership with St. Catherine’s Anglican Church.
Preparations began the week before at our October 10 meeting, when we stuffed bags of candy to give out to guests. Then on Thanksgiving Monday, we were up bright and early to help the Rotarians and members of the church prepare a menu of roast turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, salad, and pie. We also had the honor of serving the meal to the guests.
We were so happy to be able to spend part of Thanksgiving giving back to the community – thank you to the Port Coquitlam Rotary and to St. Catherine’s Church for allowing us to help out!
Our first-ever pub night event at Port Coquitlam’s Cat and Fiddle Pub on Friday, July 5 was a fantastic success, with the event being a complete sell-out! For $15, our friends and guests enjoyed their choice of burger and beverage. We also held a 50/50 raffle and a toonie toss to raise additional money. A grand total of $1554 was raised from the event. Thank you to everyone who supported us that evening – your donations will make a difference both in our community and around the world!
The Tri-Cities Rotaract Club spent the afternoon of Canada Day 2013 at Castle Park in Port Coquitlam running an activity booth for the kids. Games, tattoos and other fun giveaways were part of the attraction. We had a great time spending the day with residents of the Tri-Cities and celebrating our country’s 146th birthday!
We were extremely honoured to have the opportunity to participate with dozens of other well-known organizations from the Tri-Cities in the Port Moody Centennial Parade on June 22, 2013. Over 100 years of Port Moody’s past, present, and future were represented in the event, which ran from the Port Moody Civic Centre down Murray Street to Rocky Point Park.

The past few weeks have been busy ones for the Rotary Clubs in the Tri-Cities area, with all four clubs hosting their Installation nights for their incoming Presidents. First up on July 4, our official sponsor club, the Rotary Club of Port Moody, bid farewell to outgoing president Al Stjernegaard. Al has played a tremendous part in the creation of the Tri-Cities Rotaract. His support and guidance over the past few months is very much appreciated, and we now have a group of over 30 vibrant, enthusiastic members. We cannot thank him enough for all the hard work he has done for us, but we wish him all the best and look forward to working with the new president of the Port Moody Rotary Club, Jon Dominy!
We would also like to congratulate Jim Fitzpatrick, incoming President of the Rotary Club of Coquitlam Sunrise, Harry Tubbs, incoming President of the Rotary Club of Coquitlam, and Angela Anderson, incoming President of the Rotary Club of Port Coquitlam Centennial, on their Installations! A special thank you to the Port Coquitlam Centennial club, who graciously donated a $300 cheque to the Tri-Cities Rotaract Club during their ceremony. It is wonderful to know that we have the support of not just one, but four Rotary clubs in the area!
