Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund Established
 
The Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation has established the “Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund” to assist in the rebuilding of that city following this tragic fire.  The Charitable Foundation is now ready to accept donations, for which tax receipts will be issued.  The Foundation will rely on an independent committee of Fort McMurray stakeholders (including the Rotary clubs and the municipality) for advice on disbursal of the funds. 
 
Donations may be from individuals or corporations.  Rotary clubs may wish to facilitate this process by collecting donations, and then forwarding either the individual cheques or a cheque drawn on the club’s account for the total amount, along with a list of the donors and their addresses and postal codes.
 
Please make cheques payable to:  "Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation" and forward to:
 
Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation
c/o Rotary District 5370 Office
16030 – 104 Ave.. NW
Edmonton AB    T5P 0S3
 
Please annotate cheques “Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund”
 

If you wish to make a donation using a charge card, you may do so using ATB Cares.  ATB matches donations with an additional 15%.  Here’s the link:

"Be a Gift to the World"

Welcome to a new Rotary year and our new Rotary theme: “Be a Gift to the World”

Rotary International president K.R. (Ravi) Ravindran from Sri Lanka is asking us to give of ourselves to others so that the world will be richer because we passed through it.  Every one of us has something to give – whoever we are, whatever our place in life.  We can give our talent, our knowledge, our abilities and our effort; we can give our dedication, our devotion and our resources.  Through Rotary, we can take these gifts and make a genuine difference in the lives of others.

Sally and I are very excited to be visiting the many clubs of District 5370 over the next six months.  We look forward to learning about the diversity within and between our clubs.  We will share ideas between clubs and from Rotary International.  We look forward to seeing all the different ways Rotarians can “Be a Gift to the World”.  Our travels will take us from Fort Nelson, BC, to Battleford, SK, and from Yellowknife, NT, to Wetaskiwin, AB.  Please follow us on our adventure through our blog at https://governorstravels.wordpress.com/.

Enjoy, Rotary! We will see you along the road!

Tim & Sally

UN chief Ban Ki-moon opens Korea convention
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was among the first to welcome Rotary members and friends to the 107th Rotary Convention, heralded as one of the largest-ever gatherings of Rotarians and the most multicultural assembly of nonprofit leaders in Korea.
