Progress profiles show future is in good hands

Re: 40 Under 40, (Chilliwack Progress, March 27) What a wonderful piece

Re: 40 Under 40, (Chilliwack Progress, March 27) What a wonderful piece – and there was a lot of great investigative journalism in the work.

Kudos to The Progress staff on this. More importantly, what an amazing tribute to the young entrepreneurs amongst us who exhibit such a strong sense of community.

We are truly blessed to have so many devoted and passionate young people in our community. These people all personify why Chilliwack is such an amazing place to call home – people who care and share.

How nice to also see the number of these young people who also include Rotary as a vehicle through which to serve not only their local but the international community.  As a passionate Rotarian myself, I am very proud to know many of those profiled, and I can testify that they ‘walk their talk’.

Profiling these wonderful people might dispel the myth of the ‘Me Generation’, as well as the myth that Rotary is just a bunch of old grey-haired men meeting for lunch. Rotary provides the opportunity of service through fellowship.

All of the wonderful young people The Progress featured are great examples of ”Service above Self” – be they Rotarians or not.
