The Power of YOU!

One song can spark a moment,
One whisper can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One moment can make one fall in luv.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey.
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,
One life can make a difference,
You see, it's up to you!

Give the gift of YOU!

Volunteers are needed to help serve dinner at Operation Friendship Seniors Society (9526-106 Avenue) on Thursday, February 23 and Thursday, March 23. Please contact William Betteridge at
Volunteer support is also needed for the Voyageur Experience for Delton School April 4-5 and for Norwood School April 12-13.
Volunteering is a great way to spend your time and give back to our neighbours.

History is being made even more exciting!

Join the movement to include everyone!

Inclusion is the action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure. By being a part of the Rotary Employment Partnership you begin the journey of inclusion which fulfills the need of the business while fulfilling the needs of people.

Todd Odgers, Principal, Centre for Intercultural Education

Todd Odgers from Norquest College joined us to share insights into the future. Our morning talk was insightful and showed the changes we are experiencing as a community.
1. Responding to "the new reality"
2. Noticing "something's up"
3. An intercultural framework to apply
4. Expanding habits of mind
5. Final metaphor to apply

Thank you to Concordia University Department of Theatre

Private vs. Public? That is the question ...

I would like to begin by saying that I am not taking sides to the argument of Private vs. Public Health Care. This is probably just as bad as having an opinion for either option. I wholehearted believe that we are in trouble either way. Both have positive sides and negative problems. Which one should we choose? Again, me choosing neither isn’t good because I didn’t educate myself enough on each option to formulate a choice. A decision to follow my choice.

Food helps create community ...

Riverview Rotarians were out this last week helping serve a lovely pancake breakfast at Norwood School. As we break bread (or in this case shared a pancake breakfast) it is an opportunity for us to create a community within the school - a safe place for parents and children.
The early morning breakfast saw between 200-300 parents, students and their siblings enjoy the warm morning meal. Thank you to our wonderful volunteers and donors who made this possible!

Sharing our trip ...

Help the children play & give today!

No childhood is complete without play and the physical, social, and emotional benefits it provides. The children who live at Hogar Miguel León don’t have a playground where they can enjoy safe active play—where they can develop large muscle skills, acquire communications skills through sharing and taking turns, form friendships, and exercise creativity.

Friendship Exchanges...What Amazing Fellowship!


We never give up ...

It was lovely to have speakers from Boyle Street Community Services join our club. I’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to tour the centre years ago as well as work with Boyle outreach workers in the past. The passion, kindness and respect from volunteers and staff working in the inner city is commendable.

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.
