- Club member Judith H. introduced todays' guest speaker (no introduction needed) Tiana Wong. Tiana spoke to the Club about a Service Organization she belongs to called Round Square. RS is an international school service club that promotes six ideals of learning: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service. Tiana recently attended the Round Square International Conference in Palos Verdes California, USA. Along with Tiana were students from across North America and as far away as India and Peru. The students met for fellowship, exploration, discovery and Service. Tiana and her fellow RS'ers toured the local California countryside studying the environment and its' character: coastal geography and biology, uplands forests and mountains, they planted trees in areas ravaged by fire and hiked the trails. The students toured a whale museum to see the stars of the sea, and Hollywood to see where the stars of the screen hang out. The Round Square members heard an address given by Greg Boyle founder of HomeBoy Industries, an organization that works with former street gang members helping them join society in a productive, successful way. Service work at the conference included packing 10000 meals for Haitian relief efforts. Past President and Dist. Gov. Nominee Ken Wilson thanked Tiana for speaking to us today and inducted Tiana as an Honorary Rotarian in the Rotary Club of West Vancouver Sunrise.
