This Friday, Jan. 28 at noon, we are very fortunate and excited to have Allison Furniss speak to our clubs through the power of Zoom - https://zoom.us/j/98512501281?pwd=cW9Ya1dnZjVMWEx0VlRxeGR6OG9QZz09 .
 
Allison was awarded a Rotary Global Grant through the support of the Rendezvous Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of Whitehorse to study in South Africa. She completed her Masters degree in Philosophy there and has since moved on to complete her PhD in Anthropology at the University of Cape Town. 
 
She will be talking to us about her studies and research and her travels. Most recently, she has been trekking in Tunisia with her family. The visuals will help get us out of the winter doldrums!

Hi everyone, 
We're back on our regular schedule. Tomorrow will be our regular monthly business meeting, following our Wednesday executive meeting. Please join us.
 
As with all things these days, it will be a zoom meeting. 
 
Please contact Bonnie Venton Ross if you don't get your email invitation.
January 7 is our first meeting of the new year. Our program this week will be our delayed business meeting following Christmas and New Year's. Until further notice, all meetings will continue to be via zoom.
Our guest speaker on Friday, Dec. 10 will Don  Toews. He worked with Susan Thompson, a Yukon fish biologist who created and launched Fish 4 Kenya, a project that our club supported with a Rotary grant. Over several years, she taught and mentored farmers in a Kenyan village in the art of fish farming. With this new skill, farmers developed a new source of income and pride and her efforts expanded over the years to reach others in the community.
 
Years later, the program is still going strong. Don visited the project in 2020/1. We are excited that he is going to be able to give us an update on this amazing legacy of Susan Thompson.
 
The program will be via zoom. 
 
 
 
On November 26, our guest speaker will be Dr. Lesley Brown, the new President and vice-chancellor of Canada’s newest university , Yukon University. Before moving to The Yukon, Lesley was provost and vice-president academic at Mount Royal University in Calgary. Her academic field is kinesiology, specializing in balance and fall prevention in the elderly.
 
Please join us via zoom to hear what she envisions for Yukon University.
 
 
Friday, November 19 will be our regular monthly business meeting following the Board meeting earlier this week. During the current state of emergency, we are back to meeting only via Zoom. 
 
 
November is Rotary Foundation month. Rotary improves the quality of life for millions of people around the world and locally.
 
Our guest speaker this week will be Lee Pigage, our club's director of Foundation. He'll be providing us with valuable information on what the Foundation does and how we can contribute.
 
Please note that we are suspending in-person meetings for the time being. So, this meeting will be held only via zoom. 
 
 
On October 29, our guest speaker will be Serge Michaud, CEO of Special Olympics Yukon.  He will be talking about the organization's programming coming up.
 
We will be holding our meeting at Ricky's at noon in the meeting room. 
 
If you can't join us in person, you can also join via zoom. For more info, please contact Bonnie Venton Ross at 332-5750.
