Thursday, October 23 saw more than 20 prospective new members show up to plan the upcoming year. Here are the minutes from that meeting:
 
Important points we have discussed at the meeting today:
 
Ronald McDonald House: possible times for that will be during December, February, and April. We will be going after school from 3:30 to 7:30 pm.
 
Allen Gray(senior home): It's just a few blocks down from school we will possibly be walking there, we will go during November or December, on a Wednesday, for the whole day from period 1 and coming back at period 4, we will bake cupcakes or Christmas cookies depending on the month we will be going.
 
Helping Hampers: we have discussed the idea of making 5 boxes for helping hampers from the Rotary Club, this will be sometime in December, where it wouldn't interfere with the school calender, we can do it on a different time, it doesn't matter. 
 
FIELD TRIP!!: we are planning for a fun field trip sometime in January to the Telus world of science, we'll discuss it more in detail through our upcoming meetings.
 
Festival of Trees: we will volunteer there, we will discuss it more during the next meeting.
 
Rotary Executive: We will be making a rotary board with the pictures and names of the Rotary executives as well putting quotes with each one.

Dr. Katie Peterson shared some facts about human trafficking and it's effects on the people involved. 120 countries have signed an agreement to battle the problem. Commonly thought to include only sex workers and female (65%), Katie pointed out that men and cheap (or free) labour (35%) are an unwanted commodity when run by exploiters for their own gain.
 
 
 

 
 
Here is the information regarding two upcoming, worthwhile concerts
 
 
 
 
Our club KIVA team has recently passed a milestone or two. Patrick Gibson advised us that we have now been active with 100 (!) small loans to small businesses amounting to $8,800. in this, our first year of involvement. 100% of the 100 loans have either been paid back in full or are in the process of being paid back.
55% of loans have helped women, often with university tuition. Men and small agriculture based loans seem popular choices also.
Good work by everyone involved in this positive, immediate solution that helps us connect with real people around the world.

Update for Rotary

Dear Friends,

Greetings from eastern Congo.

When steady electricity, internet connections and free time permit, I am able to stay abreast of Rotary news from the town of Goma here in Eastern Congo. I will be sorry to miss David Holdsworth on heritage buildings and the upcoming talk on human trafficking, the former because I have an interest in heritage buildings, and the latter because human trafficking is an ongoing problem in most of the places the Canadian Army sends me.

 
 
 
 

"Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?"

November 8th


Guess Who's Coming to Dinner is a social program of the Rotary Club of Edmonton Strathcona. It is designed to provide an opportunity for Club members and spouses/companions to meet other Club members in an informal, social, small group setting.


Typically a Member would Host one month and be a Guest for two months. All Members are encouraged to participate - even if for only one month. The visitors should expect anything from spaghetti or pizza to steaks. The most important part of this program is the fellowship and the opportunity to get to know each other better.

>>> PLEASE LOOK AT THIS ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITY <<<

With the number of members in this club either owning or operating a business, we are getting a very poor interest in this nice little generator of funds for the club.
Are the rates too steep? I don't think so, but if you do, please let us know.
If you have any bright ideas on how to promote this little initiative, please speak up.
