Rotary Salute: Deana saluted the Rotary Club of Alexandria, Egypt. This appeared to be a vibrant club up until 2008. Many of their projects wererelated to the medical world: equipment for handicapped people, money towards pediatrics and nurse training, medical convoys to rural areas. Deana could not find information after 2008 so tried the club's contact information, but her email came back. She wondered if the club disbanded do to situations in Egypt.

Highway Cleanup: a signup sheet went around. Highway cleanup is this Saturday, April 23rd at 9 a.m. Meet at Barber Motors at 8:45. Wear shoes or boots, not sandals, and bring work gloves. Wear your Rotary-at-Work vest if you have one. If you want to meet with others for breakfast prior to this, meet at Welsh Kitchen which opens at 7.
Guest Speaker: Deana introduced Brenda Croft of Kidsport. Brenda told some history of Kidsport including how it got started in Weyburn. Its mandate is to provide sport equipment and registration for families who cannot afford these activities for their children. This is for entry level sports, not elite or traveling teams. Kidsport's belief is that no children should be left out and all children deserve the benefits derived from organized SK Sports Council approved sports. 100% of their fundraising in Weyburn goes to Weyburn children. Look for a full report of Brenda's talk in next week's Weyburn Review.
