“We are strong, with a growing membership, tremendous activities and projects both locally and globally and the positive leadership we need to grow rotary,” Schultz said.

Schultz first joined the Ogopogo Rotary Club in 1997 and after a short hiatus he returned to the Rotary Club of Kelowna in 2009. He served on both boards and he was president in 2012-13.

“As we go through this year, I want us all to think about our mission to ‘grow rotary’ on a personal level,” Schultz said in a statement, noting it’s small changes that count. Adding a few hours or dollars to volunteering efforts and charitable donations will go a long way.

“We can eat this elephant, one bit at a time, but with every one of the nearly 3,000 members of our district (doing) ‘just a little more,’ we will grow rotary.”
