In response to the high traffic on her regular blog for her non-sectarian Rotary Invocations, Shawn will endeavour to post a new invocation regularly on this site, following the Rotary calendar.
Shawn Bird is a past-president of the Rotary Club of Salmon Arm (Shuswap), but has recovered. She is a Paul Harris fellow. She was the first outbound Rotary youth exchange student of the Rotary Club of Kelowna (Okanagan Mission). She was hosted jointly by the four clubs of Kotka, Finland. Shawn has even been published in The Rotarian magazine! (June 2013 Letters)
Outside of Rotary, Shawn is on the staff of the innovative Eagle River Secondary as librarian, counselor, Career Coordinator, and English teacher. She is also an author, a poet, a graduate student, a wife, a mother, a poodle brusher, a dancer, a folk harpist, and a free spirit. Summer 2016 she’ll be an Adjunct Professor at University of British Columbia. She is available to present workshops on writing and innovative educational practices.
Plainly, she does not sleep, but that’s a good thing, because otherwise she wouldn’t have time to create invocations for your club to use.
