The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen has lost our friend, colleague, club leader, community leader and all round great guy, Dave Hamilton.  Dave passed away at the end of March with his partner Tanya Hall by his side, after battling prostate cancer for many years. 
Dave's accomplishments both in Rotary and in the South Delta Community through many organizations have played a large part in shaping the great community we know and enjoy today.  Dave explemlified the Rotary Motto "Service Above Self" and lived the 4 way test in his work and personal life. 
1. Is it the TRUTH ?  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?  3. Will it build GOODWILL and better friendships?  4. Is it BENEFICIAL to all concerned? Dave served in Rotary in many roles including this last year as District Governor of 5040 and was a most respected and cherished leader to the end.  
Rest in Peace Dave, your Rotary family thanks you for all that you did for the Club, the District, Community and World !
We love you and miss you. broken heart
 
PS  For those in our community who also knew Dave, or of him,  we invite you to share in his legacy through the "Dave Hamilton Service Above Self Bursary set up in his honour before he passed away.

A BIG Rotary Thank you! The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen would like to thank you for your support of the Shred-a-thon. We had a great day, the volunteers braved the cold and rain AND we raised just over $10,000 (our goal). We will now be able to forge ahead on community projects like the Story Walk at Beach Grove Park (beside the school). What a great community we live in!

                                       

 

Please find attached above a brochure with details of an upcoming Shred-A-Thon. A Shred-A-Thon is both a fundraiser for Tsawwassen Rotary and a very safe and effective means by way of disposing of old unwanted documents. We have chosen January 30th, 2021 as we feel people will be wanting to clear out another year's unwanted documents at that time. 

 

Please note that proceeds of this event go towards the Rotary “Starfish Back Program,” which is like a food bank for needy young kids in South Delta. Essentially a backpack is filled with food every Friday so the child has food for the weekend at home. It’s surprising the demand for this here in South Delta. In addition, we will be using partial proceeds to create and build the “Storybook Walk” in Beach Grove with pages out of a storybook for children to enjoy outdoors while they walk from one reading station to the next, exercise and reading.. all great!

Gift of Light  

Sunny Tsawwassen’s business community and the City of Delta have come together with the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen to light up Diefenbaker Park with The Gift of Light!  Due to COVID-19 challenges, Tsawwassen Rotary volunteers were struggling to find a way to complete their annual Gift of Light at Diefenbaker Park this year.  With financial contributions from Sunny Tsawwassen’s business community and the City of Delta, we have found a way to make Diefenbaker park shine this holiday season!  Special thanks to the following businesses for graciously contributing to this initiative. 

 Randy’s Tire and Autocraft

 Tsawwassen Collision

 Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall

Century Group

My Tsawwassen Dentist

Vancity Tsawwassen

Tsawwassen Business Improvement Association

City of Delta

Delta Chamber of Commerce 

 The Gift of Light at Diefenbaker Park will be lit on December 1, 2020 at 7pm to coincide with Light Up Delta!  

 

 
On November 7th all members of the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen are being asked to donate the cost of two of our regular Rotary breakfasts from our cancelled in person meetings. 
 
This $35 per member PLUS a match from our generous member Edwin Lee.  Edwin owns the Tsawwassen Pharmacy and will be giving flu shot to all members that come to our drive in event at South Delta Secondary School. 
 
With the members donations and Edwin’s match and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation match we expect to raise enough money to immunize 25,000 children. 
 
Rotary has been fighting to eradicate polio from our planet since 1985.  They are so close.  Only two countries left, Pakistan and Afghanistan, and the job will be complete.
 
The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen celebrates International Day Peace Day on September 21st every year.  Watch as we celebrate the winner of The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen Rotary Peace Builder Award virtually this year!  Congratulations Mike Grandia, Member of Delta Police Department and winner of this years award,  Constable Grandia is a person who has worked hard to bring peace to our community of South Delta!
 
 
During the midst of the 2019 Australian wild fires, Past District 
Governor Bob Blacker of the Rotary Club of Steveston, received an appeal 
from his brother, ( a fire fighter in St. Albans, Australia) to fund a 
fire warning sign. As usual the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen stepped up 
with a $1,000 donation and this helped produce this sign. Just one 
example of how Rotarian's help around the world.   
EYEGLASS COLLECTION BRINGS GIFT OF VISION
 

Rotarians from 50 different Rotary Clubs across BC collected over 5,000 pairs of used eyeglasses which were donated to The Third World Eye Care Society (T.W.E.C.S) who will distribute them to children in need. The charge was lead by Tom Smith a member of The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen (seen on the left) as they are presented to Dr Marina Roma-March of T.W.E.C.S (centre) along with Rotary District Governor Bala Naido 2019 - 2020.
