Update for Rotary
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.

|Good, Old Edmonton|
We enjoyed a good talk from Robert Geldart, City of Edmonton Senior Heritage Planner. There is a Heritage Reserve budget of $3 million.
Robert's primary role is to encourage building owners to designate their buildings and restore them.
We saw some before and after photos of a few of the 111 sites. The MacDonald Hotel (1914), Mill Creek Bridge (1912), and the Hudson Bay Horse Stalls (1914) converted to become the Daytona Armouries.
Conservation, Rehabilitation and Restoration to preserve what we have here in a new city was shown to be important. It is our vital role to pass our history on to future residents for the next hundred or so years.

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.
