Over many decades, through achievement and turmoil near and far, and in our ever more rapidly changing world, Rotary members have continued to provide service above self to our community here and communities from afar. Yet we have all come a long way in our demographics and how we look and work together. Here is a June 1970 photo of business and community leaders on the board of Rotary Club of Ladner, the only club in Delta at the time and which eventually founded the Rotary Clubs of Tsawwassen and North Delta. They are part of the proud heritage of Ladner Rotary which has been celebrating its 65th Anniversary. Photo courtesy of Arthur Birk and Ulf Ottho.
