Stories

February is Rotary Peace and Conflict Resolution Month. In our club, we support this area of focus in several ways. In 2018, we sponsored a ‘Young Maraneo Peace Advocates Camp’ in the Philippines. This camp was organized by the youth in the area to bring together young people from various tribes to build trust and understanding and to foster future peace. In 2022, along with the Rotary community, we contributed to The Rotary Foundation – Peace Initiatives to support our brothers and sisters from Ukraine cope with the travesty of war.

If you would like to join us in endeavors like this, join us for one of our luncheon meetings.

 

On January 4, 2023, the Rotary Club of Edmonton Mayfield was delighted and moved by a presentation from Paul Dusseault, Rotary Club of Edmonton Riverview on their recent project in Ecuador.  With more than 2 years of planning, funding from Rotary Clubs, Rotary District 5370 and a Rotary International World Grant and a reliable partner club from Ecuador, the Club Rotario Tomebamba; a large contingent of Canadian volunteers, medical personnel and supplies traveled to Cuenca, Ecuador in September 2022 to perform much needed cataract surgeries.  From September 19-23, 2022, 79 surgeries were performed by the team and with another 70 that had been performed in the Spring, now 149 natives of Ecuador can see again!!  What is more exciting is that local medical professionals in Cuenca have been engaged to learn how to do the surgeries there in the future.  The group is planning another trip in the fall of 2023 and they need your help!!  The Rotary Club of Edmonton Mayfield has committed to financially support this worthwhile project and we encourage you to do the same. https://portal.clubrunner.ca/454  #PeopleOfAction

 

January is Vocational Services Month in the Rotary world. This month we celebrate projects designed to assist the recipients expand their knowledge in various fields.

We do this in East Africa by supporting medical professionals who travel to East Africa and provide training to local professionals. And we do this in Honduras through our support of Lead with Seeds, a non-profit that has established a training farm and school to teach local students.

If you would like to learn more, join us for lunch.

A big shout out and thank you to Jason Gregor for his Days of Giving. Once again Jason included the Rotary Club of Edmonton Mayfield and our support for Brightview School in his fundraiser. We received $5,700 as a result. Thank you, Jason!

Drive Happiness is currently seeking volunteer drivers! This is a highly rewarding opportunity to give back for drivers who own a vehicle and possess a valid class 5 license. You’ll choose where and when you drive, and even receive a fuel reimbursement!  

Tristen Runzer, Volunteer Coordinator for Drive Happiness, visited our club last week to share how this non-profit organization provides low-cost assisted transportation to older adults. By connecting people to the wide range of resources they need to live well, Drive Happiness promotes independence while reducing social isolation.
