The Burnaby Rotary Club was happy to host a social distance gathering at Burnaby's Fraser Foreshore Park on Friday! It was great to see members, without the risk of zoom fatigue!

Like many Rotary Clubs in BC, we have been adapting to COVID through ongoing efforts such as planning virtual walks, stay-at-home galas, and virtual auctions to raise funds and good will while maintaining provincial health guidelines. For example, the Rotary Club of Lions Gate North Vancouver ran a virtual Canada Day celebration!

Our luncheon was near the Fraser Foreshore Fitness Circuit, a Rotary and Community funded project in celebration of Canada's 150th. Such Fitness Circuits allow easier access to equipment and exercise to seniors and marginalized communities. This project was a collaboration between Burnaby city hall, Rotary Burnaby, Rotary Club of Burnaby Metrotown, Rotary Club of Burnaby - Deer Lake, and local businesses raising over $150,000, a high cost required due to the engineering and material necessary for sufficiently weatherproof and robust equipment.
