Rotary Club of Yellowknife
We at Rotary are happy to support Yellowknife's Canada Day Parade again this year.  
 
We've provided information about the Parade this year in the graphic below.  The route is a bit different because of the road work happening this year, so hopefully this will help. 
 
 
Details: 
  • Participants of the parade need to show up at Sir John Franklin 10:00 AM, floats especially need to show up early.
  • Please contact Darin Benoit at canadaday@rotaryclubofyellowknife.ca or 445-2844 for any inquires.
  • All participants are welcomed.
  • Parade starts at 11:00 AM sharp.
  • Bike decorations supplied, cash prizes will be handed out.
  • Best Float, Best Marching Group, Best Small Group, and Most Original will be awarded to participants.
See you there!
 
We had a great presentation from Brenda Le on the Adventures in Citizenship program.  Here's a few of her images from her presentation!
A short while ago we did Christmas wreaths again.  It's a major fundraiser for our service projects - none of the money goes to club administration. supplies, travel, lunches, etc.
And great thanks are overdue to the Joint Task Force North members who helped out A LOT:

Master Seaman Tyler Grant, Petty Officer 2nd Class Belinda Groves (also took great pictures - check out our Facebook page for them!!!), Captain Andrea Harrison, Major Jason Blake, Corporal Jessie Drown, Tina Schauerte.

The Rotary Club of Yellowknife would like to thank the Union of Northern Workers for their continued support of the Kids Ahead program, which delivers healthy snacks to elementary school children in Yellowknife.  The Union of Northern Workers has been proud to support Rotary in bringing the Kids Ahead program to local schools for the past 13 years.
 
Since funding has been confirmed for the project, we'll need a chair and volunteers to coordinate the delivery of snacks to the schools.  If you're interested in helping out with this community project, please get in touch with Chris Potyok and he'll be able to get you started.
 

Thanks to Peter Vician for his talk and continued support to the School Project in Mozambique yesterday in partnership with the Gateway club in Edmonton.

I want to remind everyone that in the coming weeks we expect to have presentations forthcoming from Chris Potyok regarding clean water and sanitation systems for children in the Philippines, and from Nazim Awan regarding a clean water pump system in a community in Pakistan.

If anyone has other suggestions for International projects that our club would be interested in being involved in, now is the time to let us know. Speak to any member of the executive and we'll set you up with the process to qualify your project and present it to us.

The Rotary Club of Yellowknife presented Gillian Anderson with an award in recognition of Crowe MacKay's continued support of the club.  Thanks!

You already know that joining Rotary means you have people to hang out with, almost anywhere in the world. When you travel, you can have a great experience by visiting a Rotary Club in the place you are. You'll enjoy great fellowship, share ideas and you can get make-up credit for the meeting you are missing in Yellowknife. Now, there's an added incentive!

MEAL MAKE-UP CREDIT! If you pay for lunch at the Club you are visiting, bring back a receipt of some kind, and receive a voucher to bring a guest FREE to one of our Yellowknife meetings!

See President Darin to get your "Meal Make-up Voucher"!

Finding potential new members for our club is much easier than you think. As this excerpt from Club Runner Newsletter shows, in our day-to-day activities, we can simply promote the features and benefits of Rotary when the opportunity arises. Adapted from previous issue of Membership Matters.
