A Previous meeting enjoying the update from the board
Our speaker surprised us last Tuesday by not showing up! Pres Elect Harald did a fine job with Brenda McCullough's help to have several Board Members bring us up to speed on what is happening 2 1/2 months in to the Rotary Year.
Highlights include:- Community Service would like to concentrate up to 40% of their budget to a single local organization. Bring forward your ideas.
- International Committee wants to do similar deeds with a greater amount going to one organization.
-Membership has prepared for you to bring a prospective new member for a free lunch their first meeting, Any Time! We would like to see 10-12 new members join us this year. A special Fall and Spring Membership meeting will make it even more enticing. Who do you know that would benefit from being a Rotarian?
 
All positives going forward .
Great Club!
 
 

 
 
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  Slowly, we are making a difference in the lives of the children in the Colima area.  Over the years, there have been many changes at Project Amigo but the need remains constant.  Please help us by encouraging your acquaintances and family to get involved.
 
 
 
A very generous donation was made by members of Rotary Club of Edmonton Southeast led by Arlene Gort.
 
 
 
 

 
 

 

Al Pierog, from Edmonton South club gave a quick update on the inbound student coming to Edmonton in August. A girl from Bolivia will be here and we still need host families for 4 of the 10 months. Always an enriching experience for the exchange student AND the host families AND the clubs that participate. Even a weekend (give the host family a break) would be great for the student.

Please give it some thought. Let President Stephanus know.

 

 
 
From Donna Hutton:
This was a PowerPoint presentation that was given at a national conference for an organization that I am involved with at the Board level. It has some interesting information that we thought might be of interest to our members.
 
Please click on this LINK    Tip: After the PowerPoint opens, press the F5 key to start the presentation. Advance screens by using the [Enter/Return] key or the [Up] and [Down] arrows. Press [Esc] to exit the presentation.
 
 

 
 

Take a Bold Step: Participate in a Poverty Simulation

 
Did you know that there are 120,000 people living in poverty in the Edmonton area, including 37,000 children?

How would you deal with a life in poverty? You are invited to participate in a community Poverty Simulation, which is coordinated by the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region. This is a powerful opportunity to experience what it may be like to live in poverty and the challenging decisions people are faced with every day. Considering so many of our Rotary Club projects and initiatives align with lifting people out of poverty, this is a great opportunity for us to get an idea of what it may be like to walk in their shoes.

Go to our Kiva page http://www.kiva.org/team/rotary_club_of_edmonton_StrathconaImage

>>> 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.
