In 2020, the selected banner design recognized Rotary's 100 years of service to Nanaimo.
A playful, eye-catching design by Amy Pye was produced, rendered in Rotary’s blue and gold colours, including graphics that point to the club’s commitment to promoting peace, fighting disease, and supporting education.
Based in Nanaimo, Amy Pye is the award-winning principal designer at Pye Design and is a community-minded entrepreneur.
