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.

 

50/50: (now at $115) Tom Schuck did not draw the queen of diamonds.

 

Ray announced that our club will receive a Literacy Award at the District Conference.

 

A thank-you letter was received from Mitch Bellefleur for his Rotary scholarship won at the Music Festival.

 

A get-well card for Terry was passed around.  Garnet gave an update about him.

 

Lobsterfest:  a signup sheet went around.  A meeting for committee heads of the Lobsterfest is Monday, April 23rd at 5 p.m. at Queen Elizabeth.  All tickets are presently out.

 

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.

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...

Get live updates and vote totals from the Council on Legislation on Rotary.org beginning on 11 April. Representatives from Rotary clubs worldwide will gather in Chicago 10-15 April to consider changes to the policies that guide Rotary International and its member clubs.  Many of this year’s proposed changes are designed to increase membership by giving clubs greater flexibility in the timing and the nature of their meetings. Other proposals would amend membership requirements.

If a sponsored club is not listed, submit the Interact Club Certification Form by 1 March. Then, verify by 15 April that your Interact clubs have qualified for the...
