A White Rock Rotarian was honoured this month by both his association and the City of White Rock.
On Dec. 8, at the White Rock Rotary Club’s annual Christmas luncheon, White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin proclaimed it to be Derek Lucas Day in the city, in honour of Lucas’ years of “valuable and selfless service to the (rotary) club.”
Lucas has been a rotary member since 2005, and has been lauded with numerous awards, including a Peace Through Service award, as well as two Paul Harris awards. He has also been recognized for establishing a group that collects used bicycles and distributes them to local children.
Also on Dec. 8, Lucas’ wife, Donna, was honoured with a Paul Harris Award.
