Updates on Club Activities
 
 
The Rotary Club of Edmonton Whyte Avenue's own Tamara Larson was recognized for her commitment & support to the Rotary Foundation last night as she was presented the Major Donor crystal! As a Major donor, Tamara joined a global group of humanitarians united in their passion of service. Congrats Tamara!‬
Rotary is often defined as “service above self” and the Whyte Knight Award was created to recognize the commitment of our fun, fearless, and focused members in serving others. Tonight we awarded Tim Onciul with the Whyte Knight Award. Tim was the inaugural recipient of the award back in May of 2016. Tim received the award again for his continued passion to help youth in our community. The dodgeball tournament in support of Youth Empowerment Support Services (YESS) was a success because of Tim’s vision and commitment. Thank you Tim for all that you do! Congratulations on receiving the Whyte Knight Award!

On Tuesday November 19th, Dr. Stan Houston, adjunct professor at the U of A’s School of Public Health helped put the global efforts to eradicate polio into perspective by comparing its progress with efforts  to eradicate other diseases.  He also gave a brief history on clinical awareness of the disease and shared some facts and figures regarding it’s toll on society and the victories and challenges involved in achieving eradication.

 
International Projects We Support
 
Rotary made a promise to rid the world of polio and continues to work each day to reach that goal. Watch this new video to learn more about this endemic, Rotary’ efforts to eliminate polio worldwide, and how you can help. You can learn more about Rotary’s efforts towards polio eradication here.
 
 
KIVA Microfinance Loans
One of Rotary International’s six area’s of focus is growing local economies by “strengthening local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.” The Rotary Club of Whyte Avenue is working on this area of focus by providing microloans through kiva.org.
 
Stan Bissell shared the story of Thúy, a female entrepreneur living in a remote rural community in Vietnam, who the club has supported with a microloan.
