   On Thursday, November 22nd, our regular meeting was moved across the airport property to the STARS hanger. We had a great turnout and not a single person was disappointed with the visit.  We had a wonderful breakfast in the Stars meeting room and a great presentation by Stars Director of Events, Sheyanne.    A tour of the facility followed with everyone totally amazed at the equipment they have and training that these folks continually go through.  If you missed this meeting you missed a very special occasion.  Hope we can do it again some time. Photos courtesy of Stuart.  Breakfast catered by Square One. This great day arranged by Marilyn.  Thanks to all and a special big thank you to staff at Stars.

Integrity - firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values, incorruptibility. - Merriam-Webster Dictionary
 
Some 1.2 million members of 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries around the world seek to serve the community and promote high ethical standards embodied in the ideals of Rotary International. Twelve Rotary Clubs in the Capital Region sponsor the 2016 Integrity Awards to honour the non-rotarian citizens for their integrity and service to the community. Recipients are those Albertans judged by the respective clubs as persons who: Have a lifestyle consistent with the Four-Way Test; Have a life showing purpose and expressing principles widely accepted in the community; Take a stand without concern for personal loss or reputation, regardless of circumstances; Pursue their integrity without need for recognition within the community, and Have made a personal contribution to the region that warrants special recognition.
 
Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody’s going to know whether you did it or not. - Oprah Winfrey (1954-)

Rotary is a global network of community volunteers

Rotary members are business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Some 31,000 Rotary clubs in more than 165 countries carry out service projects in their local communities and abroad to:

Support service in the community and in the workplace

Address many of today’s most critical issues such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy and violence

Rotary Clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious and open to all cultures, races and creeds.

Of all the things we think, say or do:
- Is it the truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
- Is it beneficial to all concerned?
Have you ever wondered what Rotarians do, and how to become one? Rotary is one of the world's largest peace organizations, we are working world wide to end Polio, we work towards furthering the human condition world wide, as well as working on projects right in our community!

You are invited to our meetings, we meet year round at Red Tail Landing Golf Course at the Edmonton International Airport. Meetings are Thursdays at 7:15 am and $15 includes breakfast. Enjoy the company of other globally minded citizens, find out all the community service and projects we work on locally and internationally, and if you want to join us - apply for membership!

Gerald Thomas is our membership chair, and you can contact him at 780-292-3601 for more information or for an application form. The membership process is very easy - once you fill out the application, it takes about a month to process, and your sponsoring Rotarian will keep you updated on the progress. Once you've been approved, you will be inducted at one of our regular meetings - it's that easy!

We'd love for you to join the fun that we have every week! Join us today!!
