Approximately 50 Rotarians and their guests celebrated International Women’s Day Wednesday by hearing from a local university student making a difference in the world.

Guest speaker Rea Klar is a Trinity Western studying to be a doctor. In 2022 she was selected as an observer for the Christian Climate Observers Program, and travelled to Egypt where she attended the United Nations COP27 a Climate Change Conference.

She gave her perspective on how the future of women and girls is brighter due to the efforts of women’s efforts in the past.

The Rotary Club of Langley Central wanted to mark International Women’s Day, which falls annually on March 8 and held a luncheon at Newlands Golf & Country Club.

This year’s event was smaller than in the past, however plans are underway to mark next year’s International Women’s Day on a larger scale.
