I would like to advise all RCC members about a decision of the Board of Directors on Wednesday, November 18th regarding our Stay in School (SIS) Program.  After due consideration and evaluation of all the work completed by the SIS Committee directed at mitigating risk, the Board voted unanimously to support the ongoing operation and administration of the program within the club.  This means that we will not be pursuing an external partnership to support this program at this time . It was felt that this program is too important to the identity of our club and the engagement of members to allow the management of the program to be outsourced.  For clarity, the Rotary Tom Jackson Stay in School Program team is continuing to explore the possibility of an external partnership since the needs and approach for that program are different from those of the Stay in School Program.

The next Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) Module is scheduled for Saturday, December 12th at Calgary Rotary Challenger Park.  If any members have already completed RLI modules 1 and 2 then they won’t want to miss RLI module 3. This, the final step in the RLI journey, focuses on Rotary Opportunities, Effective Leadership Strategies, International Service, Public Image and Pubic Relations, Building a Stronger Club and Making a Difference.


We now have online registration for The Christmas Kickoff Concert for Seniors on Sunday, December 6, 2015, starring The Young Canadians.

We need approximately 40 bus attendants that will meet their assigned bus at a seniors' residence, load the seniors on the bus, usher them to their seats at the concert, and take them back home again. You are welcome to bring a family member or friend to help you out. This an ideal way to get into the holiday spirit!  You will need to get to the senior's residence around 12:30 PM and will return between 4:00 and 5:00 PM.


Rotary Christmas toy hamper program……….WE’RE DOING IT IN 2015 AND IT WILL BE BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER!!!  OUR GOAL WILL BE FIFTY FAMILIES WHICH MEANS WE WILL NEED ABOUT $10,000.00.   Contact the office to donate or donate online.
We are also looking for volunteers for shopping, wrapping and delivering to a family.  This is a great experience for a family or for grandparents and grandchildren.  Contact the Hamper Committee to volunteer.
Our Club's Activities

The Rotary Club of Calgary has been involved with the Calgary Rotary Challenger Park since its inception in the late 1990s.  The Rotary Club of Calgary has three members serving on the Board of Challenger Park (Past-President Doug MacDonald, Brian Guichon and David Holden) and several others who have served as Board members and Park leaders.  These individuals are now recognized as Park Ambassadors (Lou MacEachern, Walter Haessel, and Don Ross).

Calgary Rotary Challenger Park is a barrier-free meeting and recreational facility that is accessible to all people regardless of their age or ability.  But it is more than that!  It is a model of community inclusiveness where persons with disabilities can play next to and with their able-bodied peers on a daily basis.
In September 2015 The Rotary Club of Calgary agreed to support the Calgary Rotary Challenger Park  “Centre For All Abilities” project by donating $100,000/year for five years commencing in the 2016/17 Rotary year.

The Rotary Club of Calgary has been making major donations to the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway for 5 years!

Thirteen Calgary Rotary clubs, the Rotary Club of Cochrane and Rotoract are sponsors along with Mattamy Homes, and have come together to fund the bulk of the project. 

 "The Greenway embodies Rotary's vision for a better future for Calgarians and the generations who follow.  We are very proud to put our name to this community project."  Eva Friesen, president of the Rotary Club of Calgary, said in a release.

As of summer 2015, the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway is nearing 90% completion.  Check the pathway progress.
