Rotary news from the District Governor

 
We had the good fortune to have the Rotary District Governor, Frank Reitz from Fort McMurray, at our meeting this past week. Thanks so much Frank for attending and sharing the latest Rotary news and vision to our members.

We need your help to feed hungry Edmontonians!

 

Riverview Rotary heard that Edmonton's Food Bank is experiencing a shortage of donations -- food and funds. We have committed $5,000 to this wonderful organization and the cheque is already making its way there now.

We're asking your help in matching our donation and sending another $5,000 to Edmonton's Food Bank that does so much for so many.

 

Our club has a long history of serving meals to Edmonton's needy, whether they are the children and families who belong to our inner city school communities, or they are disadvantaged seniors struggling to meet their basic needs. But, on a daily basis, people in our city are hungry, and Edmonton's Food Bank is there for them. Visit the website of Edmonton's Food Bank to learn more.

Riverview Rotary's newest member - Shayan Jalali

 
Riverview Rotary is pleased to welcome Shayan to our club and the big world of Rotary. We are looking forward to getting to know Shayan and helping make our world a better place for all.

Ambulance comes from the Latin word "Ambulare"

 
"Ambulare" in Latin means "to walk or move about" which references the early medical care where patients were moved by lifting or wheeling. An important and essential item for any community to help provide medical care.
Club member, Roman Bayrock, and Riverview Rotary friend, Sandra McDonald, were able to acquire another ambulance to share with a community in Belize. After a thorough mechanical inspection and it loaded with donated medical items ... it is ready to go and will be heading down to Belize within a couple of weeks! Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible.

Dusseaults!

 
Riverview Rotary is pleased to welcome Cynthia Dusseault to our club. Cynthia has helped at countless events, fundraisers, and community service activities side-by-side for a long time. We are pleased that Cynthia will be taking her "service above self" to the next level working with us as a fellow Rotarian. Thank you Cynthia!

Judy & Ron!

 
Judy Harcourt-Brown and Ron Brown were the successful bidders at our Operation Esperanza fundraiser to send Dr. Greidanus to Ecuador for hip and knee operations last October.  They bid on an fun filled adventure packed jet boat trip down the North Saskatchewan river  from Edmonton to Devon. After a stuffed salmon BBQ ,  a quick zip back and a great time was had by all.   We even got hung up, unintentionally I might add, on a gravel bar.  Kudos to Judy and Ron for being gracious outdoors people.  Can’t think of nicer people to go boating with.
On June 20, John Williams, Lindsay Robinson and Roman Bayrock were presented with Paul Harris Pins in recognition of their support of the Rotary Foundation! What great examples of Service Before Self!
 
 

Rotary International Convention

 
Paul, our incoming President, and his lovely wife, Cynthia, attended Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia to experience the hospitality of the American South and share with fellow Rotarians from around the world.

Operation Esperanza Expanded

 
It is amazing the friendships that has been built spanning thousands of kilometers from Edmonton, Canada to Cuenca, Ecuador as we work with the Tomebamba Rotary Club. A couple of years ago we met with the local orphanage, Hogar Miguel Leon, that the Tomebamba Club was helping to see how else we can support their work.

How many Rotarians can you fit in an Ambulance?

 
Only actually one - the driver with his trusty co-pilot volunteer. A 5 week odyssey from Edmonton to Miami, then a barge to Belize City. Then the ambulance is off to the Southern Regional Health District to be commissioned and sent to work.

All you need to know to nominate ....

 
Nomination Form and Criteria
 
Integrity is defined as a moral soundness, uprightness, and honesty. The District 5370 Capital Region Rotary clubs annually present Integrity Awards to promote high ethical standards and raise awareness of Rotary ideals. The purpose of these awards is to honour adult, non-Rotarian members of the community for their integrity as citizens. Each participating club recognizes one such individual at an annual Dinner.
 
Also, we are looking for 3-4 people who would be interested in volunteering for an hour or so to discuss nominees and make a selection on behalf of the club. If you are interested in this role, please let Karen know by end of day Tuesday, March 14.
 

A Riverview Rotary 2016-2017 Update

 
There is always a missing piece to my puzzles at home. I often try to fake it with a new piece I just drew on a post-it note, but I always get called out. Below are some points and information about the work at Riverview Rotary to help share the knowledge. Feel free to email us if you have any questions or simply seeking clarification.

The Rotary Foundation: "To Do Good In The World"

 
 
The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
 
A monthly donation of $15 (CDN) to the Rotary Foundation will allow you to fulfill $100 (US) per Rotarian each year and then some. Join the movement to make a difference.
 
The Rotary Foundation (Canada) is a Canadian federally chartered corporation and Canadian registered charity supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of The Rotary Foundation who share its vision of a better world. Join the millions of Rotarians giving to Our Foundation and know that you are doing good in the world.
