Portia and Denis Lynn travelled to Russia in the summer of 2016. Denis was attending the European Congress of Protistology, held in Moscow. While in that city, they toured the sights of Moscow. After the conference, they joined the Viking River Cruise “Waterways of the Tsars”, sailing from Moscow to St. Petersburg via the Volga-Baltic Waterway. The tour ended with a visit to some sights in St. Petersburg.

Denis planned to present a slide show in three parts – Moscow, cruising the Volga-Baltic Waterway, and St. Petersburg using pictures taken by Portia and Denis, highlighting their Russia 2016 Tour.

During this meeting there were enthusiastic reports of two major programs this month:

  • The 2017 Run for Rwanda. With perfect weather, this was huge success.
  • Bowen Rotary’s first time providing volunteers at the Bowen Island Recycling Depot (BIRD). President Ross let the club know that this raised substantial new funds for Bowen Rotary projects.

As a result, Denis had time to talk about only the Moscow part of his trip. He has promised to return to deliver the rest of his presentation.
