On Saturday July 8, 2006, a number of Rotarians from Vancouver Centennial attended Vancouver Chinatown's 25th Anniversary Celebration and Installation dinner at the Renaissance Harbourside Hotel with RI President-elect Wilf Wilkinson as the keynote Speaker.

 

 

It was such a spectacular event attended by over 500 Rotarians from different clubs and districts.

 

DG Kevin Conway kicked off the event by holding an installation ceremony for the 2006-07 board members. It was followed by the installation of Rick de Guzman as the new Club President for Vancouver Chinatown by PDG Charles Loh.

 

RI President-elect Wilf Wilkinson of Rotary Club of Trenton Ontario made his keynote presentation after the 3-course dinner. RI President-elect Wilf Wilkinson thanked all members for the many service projects they have undertaken over the years and urged everyone to continue to contribute to the community. It was indeed an honour to all Rotarians and Canadians who have attended this function as Wilf Wikinson is the first Canadian President of RI in 55 years.
