A Focus on our Members:
John Wu is one of the newest Rotary members in our club but has already had a big impact in our Rotary world.   John signed up and ordered Rotary masks for his employees as a way to support the club, and most recently Donated to the Giving Tuesday fund at the highest level.   His $500 donation also secures his company as a Gold Sponsor for our web site.
John is the President and owner of Owner of Columbia Security Systems Inc & APC Alarm companies.  These companies provide corporate security and monitoring for business in BC.
Most Recently John and his company were featured in the news for bringing COVID 19 safety cameras to businesses.  These cameras operate in the background but monitor visitors and flag an alert when people enter with a temperature.
We thank John for all of his efforts and contributions in such a small amount of time!
