Pollinator Tree Planting

   Our club was once again involved in planting trees in the City of Leduc's, Telford Pollinator Garden. Due to the Covid 19 restrictions we were not able to assist at the actual planting but did contribute $1800.00 to purchase 18 additional trees bringing the total new trees this year to 58.  The trees were planted by City staff  this year without assistance from any of the volunteer organizaions involved.

Honorary Member - Claire Voldeng

Posted by Gord Lewis on May 20, 2019
   I have been busy with updating our Club Runner information and RI Integration.  It has been a bit of challenge for an old dinosaur but it has been rewarding in making some connections.  A few years ago we had a very active member, Claire Voldeng, who due to personal reasons left our club for fairer climates on Vancouver Island. We made Claire an honorary member of our club and she was so listed on Club Runner for many years but never integrated with Rotary International.  This now had to be corrected and we need both Club Runner and RI to have identical information. I reached out to Claire to see what she was up to and if she still wanted to be an honorary member of our club.  She responded with two very interesting emails about her current life and her memories of her time in our club. Once you have read these, you will see why we want and need people like Claire in our Rotary world.  Please "Read More" .

Integrity Awards 2019

Posted by Gord Lewis on May 19, 2019
   The Capital Region Rotary Integrity Awards were held on May 8, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Edmonton. Nisku-Leduc's winner this year was John Bole.  The evening was well attended with 6 members of our club along with John & Joan Bole and 4 family members.   There were a total of 10 Integrity Awards presented by Edmonton area clubs and John certainly stood out as a very worthy recipient.  John's brief bio is included in the Read More area.  View more pictures from this year's event in the Photo Album section.

Integrity Awards 2016

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-)

What is Rotary?

Posted by Alana Gueutal on Jun 12, 2012
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?
