Ron Brown (middle)
On Tuesday we introduced Ron Brown, a former member of the Edmonton (downtown) Rotary Club into our club.
Ron is the President of Shipper’s Supply, an Edmonton based company with ten locations across Canada, and one hundred sixty employees. He has been awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year Award and the Alberta Centennial Medal. He loves to fly, and holds a commercial pilot’s license. He also loves to ride his Goldwing trike whenever possible. He is married to Judy Harcourt Brown, who is also a Rotarian and a Past District Governor.
The Hawaiian Party, sponsored by Skip and Caren Kerr, was a great success. The food was wonderful, the weather was sunny and warm, and the entertainment took us all on a short trip to the islands of Hawaii.

There were eighty people in attendance, and along with the treasure hunt, we raised four thousand dollars for Bridges to Prosperity. A cheque was presented from our club to Rob Richardson, the President of the board for Bridges to Prosperity. Rob said that it would most likely go towards building a bridge to be installed in Columbia next year.
The lucky winners of the treasure chest key challenge were Lorraine Skelly, Vira Hughes, Stewart McKinley and Patrick Gibson. The winner for best lady’s costume was Deneen Schmidt, and for the men’s it was Harald Kukertz. We all had a great time and look forward to being able to do a similar event again next year.

>>> 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.
