FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Rotary Club of Canmore announces Citizen of the Year and Rotarian of the Year

The Rotary Club of Canmore has recognized Carol Picard as 2016 Citizen of the Year. The retired journalist and co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Outlook has a long history of volunteerism in the Bow Valley. Currently serving as chair of the Canadian Rockies Public School Board, Picard has been involved with the Canmore Folk Music Festival for many years and with the 2014 Alberta Winter Games. 

Picard also serves as Head Cook for the Community Food & Friends program at St. Michael’s Anglican Church. This very successful community program serves an average of 145 dinners each Monday night, a total of 18,000 meals since it began in April of 2013. Leading a kitchen crew of nine, Picard has contributed more than 2,600 volunteer hours to date. 

Rotarian Doug Jones nominated Picard as Rotary’s Citizen of the Year, citing her leadership skills and ‘can do’ spirit. According to Picard, “The world would not function without volunteers.  I love the camaraderie that develops.” 

The Rotary Club of Canmore also announced Jane Cameron as the 2015-16 Rotarian of the Year. Cameron was recognized for her commitment to Rotary and her innovative and enthusiastic efforts as Chair of Club Services.

As part of a team with Hearts and Hands, Rotarian Sue Shellian - Frey and her husband Gord were busy in  Guatemala this year, helping people and communities there by building facilities where needed.  You're looking good and thanks for contributing!
 

 
 

Straight out of the gate!

Last meeting we celebrated Georges (something, something) birthday.  Let's just say that every winter he competes in Senior's downhill races and always comes away with a medal.  We're proud of you George!
 

 

Rock star and foodie

Kimb enjoying some time with his exchange pals......or is it his band?  
Next time you see Kimb, ask him where he was when he was eating his noodles - looks like a Rotarian brought lunch anyway, although whatever happened to fried chicken and potato salad on a picnic ?????
 
 

 
 

Kimb practising for winter

Here's Kimb in a pretty snazzy typical Canmore winter hat and posing with the Michelle Dagenais family on an outing.  Kimb has been having an action - packed winter, skiing, hiking, climbing and adventuring in Yellowknife.

 Rotary and its partners have been working over the past two decades eradicating polio from 99% of the world. We are now on the brink of achieving this goal, but a strong push is needed to get rid of the other 1% once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

Your contribution will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families.

As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high. Please contact The Rotary Club of Canmore at (janrickmatthews@gmail.com) to make your pledge.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
