Rotary Interact Clubs Visit Ronald McDonald House  For "Meals That Mend"
The Rotary Interact Clubs from J. Percy Page & W.P. Wagner Schools combined forces to provide an Italian Lasagna Feast Dinner for over 100 people at Ronald McDonald House on Thursday November 21st. They also cleaned things up, including surfaces and windows in the big main area including a kids play room just off the dining room and kitchens.
It was the first time to RMH for the Wagner Interactors, and they seemed to enjoy the experience and meeting the Page Interactors and Celina Jensen, our lovely Danish Rotary Exchange Student, who makes friends fast with her friendly nature.
The families in residence at RMH were very appreciative to have a lovely dinner provided and served with style. It makes them feel a bit more at home with a home cooked meal that they don’t have to worry about preparing, all while going  through some challenging children health issues. Families were from Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Fort McMurray, Saskatoon, and anywhere else outside of 45 kms. from Edmonton. Fun to see the cute kids finger painting after supper with Moms and Dads and brothers and sisters. Makes you appreciate children’s good health, and the good children health care services in Edmonton for Western Canada and beyond.
Thanks to everyone who helped out ,especially our Rotary Interact Club members, many who were rookies, who made it out, and our Rotary Teachers Karen and Taso from Page, and Neesha and Jeff from Wagner. Thanks to our Rotary Club of Edmonton Strathcona drivers and helpers Hans, Dennis, Richard, Vi, and Les.
Yours in Rotary,
