Local, District & International Stories

Rotary Helping to End COVID Now campaign brings the gift of hope and love to people in the most vulnerable countries around the world.

Fellow Rotarians & Friends:

  As people of action within Rotary District 5370, our Club members volunteer for the well-being of one another, our community, and the world. With most of our international service projects on hold because of COVID, we have decided to participate in the Rotary's fundraising campaign to help eradicate covid in the world in parternership with UNICEF.
 
  Right now, we are in a race against time to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to every corner of the globe. More than 84% of eligible Canadians and 60% of world population have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The situation is more dire for families and communities in low-income countries, where only 9% of the population have received at least one dose.
 
To end this pandemic, we must protect everyone – everywhere – from COVID-19, as no one is safe until we are all safe!

Your donation will help UNICEF deliver COVID-19 vaccines to millions of vulnerable people in low- and middle-income countries around the world who are still waiting for their first dose. At $1.27 CAD per single dose, your donation of $100 will fully vaccinate 39 people.
 
 Nisku-Leduc Rotary has established it's own webpage to make it simple for everyone to donate.  Click on the link below.
 
 

Please donate today to help us deliver these life-saving vaccines before more lives are lost. Tax receipts will be issued by UNICEF Canada.

Happy Holidays!

Dear Friends,

2021 is almost over, and it was a year filled with different experiences for me and for the casa hogar... some difficult and some joyful. For me it was my first full year of returning to my place of birth and the area where I was raised, Houston Tx, after spending most of my adult life and raising my children in Colorado. It was also the year I lost my very precious husband, Dave, after forty years together. We grew CHLA together and depended on each other for emotional support and strength. For me the year has been marked by tremendous personal loss. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
    At the recent Spirit of Giving luncheon, sponsored by Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club of Nisku-Leduc disbursed the proceeds from The Cash for a Cause 50/50 raffle that took place this past spring and summer. Receiving a total of $10,000.00 each were the Boys & Girls Club of Leduc, Riseup Society and Leduc & District Food Bank.  Rotary would like to once again thank our major sponsors, Blackjacks Roadhouse and Rad Torque Raceway ( formerly Castrol) as well as our marketing sponsors Leduc Co-op, Canadian Tire and Haida Realty.

December is Disease Prevention and Treatment month and recently Mike McGovern, Chair of the Rotary  International PolioPlus Committee, was
able to visit Pakistan and in his message below, he shares with us an
update from on the ground in a polio-endemic country
 
Rotary has been working to eradicate Polio for over 35 years and we are
very close to ridding the world of this terrible disease forever. We made
a promise to the children of the world andwe must remain focused in our
effort to make our world Polio free and keep that promise to protect
children from this paralyzing disease.
 
 
 
 
 
Rotary Club of Nisku-Leduc Community 50-50 Winner Awarded
Following an incredible campaign over the summer which featured a flurry of ticket buying, the first Rotary Club of Nisku-Leduc Community 50-50 was drawn on Labour Day, September 6, 2021.  Brenda Reimer of Leduc County held the winning ticket, and took home the $40,000 Prize.  The balance of the raised funds of $32,000 were split between three community groups: the Boys and Girls Club of Leduc, the Leduc and District Food Bank and the Riseup Society of Alberta.  These worthy charitable organizations provide much needed services to residents of Leduc, Leduc  County and throughout our area.
The Rotary Club of Nisku-Leduc wishes to thank our incredible main sponsors, Blackjacks Roadhouse and Castrol Raceway, who in addition to providing financial support, also served tirelessly on the committee to promote our 50-50.  They supported our community-wide project in every way.
We also want to thank Canadian Tire, The Leduc Co-op, and Coldwell Banker Haida Realty who also generously supported our marketing efforts.  And finally, both the Leduc Rep and The One were integral for keeping our Community 50-50 front and centre all summer.
