INSPIRATIONAL MOMENT

 

“In the clashes between ignorance and intelligence, ignorance is generally the aggressor”.

 “ Permanent superiority has never been realized by any nation in history. After the rise comes the fall”.

 “Personality has power to uplift, power to depress, power to curse, and power to bless”.

 

The Rotarian Magazine-1945 - Paul Harris Quotes

LULU ISLAND MOMENT

On April 3, 1879, 24 of the 30 settlers entitled to petition of the North Arm of the Fraser River and Lulu and Sea Islands submitted a petition to His Honor, Albert N. Richards, British Columbia Lieutenant Governor in Council, requesting the area known as Richmond be incorporated as Richmond Municipality.Seven months after incorporation on November 10, 1879 by means of Letters Patent, “The Corporation of the Township of Richmond”, was incorporated as a municipality, in the name of the Queen under the Public Seal of the Province, in response to the petition of residents submitted to the provincial government. The Letters Patent defined the first geographical boundaries, mandated the date of the first municipal election and the date of the first municipal council meeting.
