Merle and Petra delivered a van load of items to WEAC (Women’s Emergency Accommodation Centre).  We topped it up with a cheque in the amount of $1,000 to help with much-needed incidentals. The staff was amazed at the many bags and boxes of pyjamas, towels, sheets, and personal care items which they hauled their storage room. Our Club's support was certainly beyond their expectations.  This is Rotary in action in our local community, through Community Services efforts.

On May 31, 2018, the Rotary Club of Edmonton Glenora joined forces with the Rotary Clubs of Edmonton West, Strathcona, and Whyte Avenue  to advance the mandate of Edmonton's Root for Trees.   About 50 Rotary members, along with some friends and family members planted 623 trees and shrubs in just a few hours!  The Root for Trees initiative has an annual goal of planting 16,000 trees to increase our urban canopy. This is also a great step towards  each Rotary club planting one tree for each member, an environmental sustainabilty challenge put forward by  2017-2018 Rotary International President Ian Risley. It was a great event--  click READ MORE to see some photos of Rotarians of having fun making a difference.
