Virtual Polio Run! 
This 5K & 10K Fun Run/Walk to raise funds to eradicate polio is a Rotary Days of Service Project, co-sponsored by Rotary District 5370 and the Rotary Club of Edmonton Riverview.
Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors and others are encouraged to sign up to complete their virtual 5K or 10K walk or run any time between September 11 and 19.
Registrations and all donations will go towards the eradication of polio.
* This does not include expenses and processing fees.
When people register, they need to identify which club they are with or supporting, and that club gets credit for the donation. 
Any funds raised will be attributed to your clubs fund raising to support polio eradication.
As well donors will receive a charitable donation receipt for monies donated less the administration fee of 6.5 % of the donation.

Tamara Larson Selected to ZONE Team for Empowering Girls Initiative
One of Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta’s key initiatives during the 2021-
22 Rotary Year is Empowering Girls. This initiative focuses on the empowerment of
girls through club and district events and service activities, as well as through RI-
sponsored events such as the Rotary International Convention, Rotary Day at the
United Nations, presidential conferences, and Rotary Days of Service.
I am very pleased to announce that Tamara Larson from the Rotary Club of Whyte
Avenue has been selected as a Zone Ambassador to champion this initiative. Tamara
will be part of a team planning an exciting event for our Zones to celebrate the
upcoming International Day of the Girl Child on 11 October.
The team will be reaching out in the coming weeks about the event, and how clubs can increase the impact of our
work together empowering girls.
THIS BROCHURE (click to view/download) provide an overview of the Initiative.  Please do share it with others.
As the People of Action Campaign reminds us,
Congratulations to the Zone 28 Team
August is Membership Month! 
It’s Membership Month!
How can you take care of your existing members?  There are countless articles written on the subject, but here are some of the ideas that really resonated with your district membership committee:
  •    Ensure everyone in your club has a committee to serve on or an executive position.  Make sure that each person understands what that role is trying to accomplish.
  • Do you have members that aren’t attending regularly?  Make sure that they receive a call.  Check in with them and find out how they are doing.  Give them an update on what the club is up to and make sure they know that they will be welcomed back at any time.
  • Celebrate the milestone events of your club members in an inclusive way.  Everyone has a birthday, but not everyone has a partner or a wedding anniversary.  What other milestones can you celebrate?
  • Have a “care and concern” person on your executive.  Have that person be in charge of reaching out to Rotarians in your club who are going through hard times.
  • Ask for feedback from club members on a regular basis.  This can be as simple as a one on one conversation or a quick phone call.
  • Make sure your club members are all greeted individually when they attend a meeting.
  • Make time to get to know each other better in formal and informal ways.  Plan social events.  Schedule time for members to give a presentation on themselves at meetings.
The District Membership Committee is happy to meet with your executive or your club to share ideas and resources for creating strong membership. 
You can email the Chair of the 5370 Membership Committee, Tyla Savard, at .
