Updates on Club Activities
Patrick Gibson, Director of International Services for the Strathcona Rotary Club, joined us at our Tuesday meeting to tell us the story of their experience investing through Kiva , a global leader in micro-financing.
 
Unlike a conventional donation, money invested through Kiva is distributed as low interest loans with defined repayment schedules. Monies repaid can be rolled into another loan for a different business, making it easy for a very small monthly investment to grow into something truly impactful.
 
In just three short years, Strathcona Rotarians have funded more that 675 micro-loans in 55 countries, helping to fund opportunities for business people in developing nations who have no access to conventional financing. 
 
Not only has the club put more than $17,000.00 to work around the world, but they have also created a Lending Team of like-minded individuals, both within and outside of Rotary, creating even greater impact. The team has funded nearly 1,500 loans, earning them the #7 ranking out of approximately 1,800 clubs registered with Kiva. 
 
Loans start at as little as $25.00 US, with lots of flexibility to choose what type of business you want to support, and where you want to invest. Visit the Kiva website to learn more, or to start putting your money to work.
 
There will be a special Fundraising Brainstorm after our regular meeting on Tuesday, January 23rd. This is your opportunity to be part of a fun and dynamic discussion as we work toward our annual fundraising goal of $20,000.00, of which we have raised $12,000.00. Do you have the $8k idea? We'll never know unless you come along.
 
Steve McRory was presented with the Whyte Knight Award for his outstanding contributions as a Whyte Avenue Rotarian.
 
The award was presented by our previous recipient, Eli Schrader, who, along with a team of other members, chose to recognize Steve's dedication and energy.
 
Congratulations, Steve!
 
 
On Sunday, February 25th, the Edmonton Oil Kings will be hosting Rotary Night, our annual fundraiser in support of End Polio Now
 
The Oil Kings are famous for delivering great hockey action in a fun, family-oriented atmosphere, at a very affordable price.
 
For just $29, you get access to the pre-game mixer  from 3:00 to 4:00 pm, plus great seats to see the Oil Kings take on the Swift Current Broncos at Roger's Place.
 
Tickets are available from Club President Kathy Strobl, with $11.oo from each ticket sold going to the End Polio Now campaign.
 
Whyte Avenue Rotary has had two consecutive record-breaking sales years for this great event. Let's make it three in a row!
 
Be sure to tell family and friends about this opportunity to enjoy an entertaining hockey experience and support of a terrific cause.
 
 
 
The Whyte Avenue Rotary Club is getting ready to once again support the Boardwalk Ice On Whyte Festival, January 25th through February 4th.
 
Volunteers are needed for a variety of four-hour shifts January 25 - 28 and February 1 - 4.
 
You can sign up for your choice of shifts by visiting the Ice On Whyte Volunteer page.
 
Please help make sure that this year's festival is another rousing, frosty success.
 
 
Wendy Andrews, Chair of the District 5370 Playground Committee, attended our January 9th meeting to give us the latest news on the playground program. 
 
Playgrounds are provided by the Emmanuel Foundation, which refurbishes and redesigns municipal and school playgrounds from Western Canada. Through this project, playgrounds that were once destined for the landfill find a new home in Belize.
 
As an extension of the project, play leadership programs are being developed as a component of the build, ensuring sustainability and ongoing maintenance.
 
You can learn more about this important and exciting initiative by visiting the District 5370 webpage, or contacting Stan Bissell, International Service Co-Chair for Whyte Avenue Rotary.
 
 
At our January 9th meeting, we were very pleased to induct Maria Reyes as the newest member of the Rotary Club of Edmonton Whyte Avenue, with the member classification, Government.
 
Maria has an extensive history with Rotary, spanning 15 years and five Rotary Clubs from BC to the Atlantic provinces. 
 
Welcome to the club and our Whyte Avenue Rotary family, Maria!
