Updates on Club Activities
The Rotary Club of Edmonton Whyte Avenue is honored to have won the award for Rotary Club of the Year at the Vision 2020 Virtual District Conference. Congratulations to all of the club members and last year's executive team on this outstanding achievement! Read the district newsletter for more information about the award.
This past Tuesday, the Rotary Club of Edmonton Whyte Avenue was joined by Karen Mottershead, Executive Director of the Terra Centre. Terra is a non-profit organization that provides supports and services that empower teen parents to succeed. Karen shared with us about the work that Terra does, such as partnering with Edmonton Public Schools at Braemar School for more than 20 years to support student parents completing their high school diploma. Through multiple on-site services, students can concentrate on both their studies and their new role as a parent.
Karen also shared how Terra is coping with COVID and how they are trying an online improv fundraiser called Laughs over Lunch. Sounds like a great way to support Terra and have some fun!
The World Health Organization (WHO) on 25 August announced that transmission of the wild poliovirus has officially been stopped in all 47 countries of its African region. This is a historic and vital step toward global eradication of polio, which is Rotary’s top priority.
Last week we had Zohreh Saher and Madison Lorenz from interVivos present to our club about their mentorship program. Zohreh captured this great image of our club members' smiling faces.
The Mustard Seed is a community partner of Whyte Avenue Rotary. This is an opportunity to raise money to help the most vulnerable members of your community by camping in your living room or your backyard. Camp-at-home to help those without one!
Our club organized a 5th meal delivery to support of some folks living at Melcor Village. Our members, friends and family of the club, YEG Passport Club members & Glenora Club Members generously prepared or purchased over 200 meals, cookies, muffins and packs of trail mix! A big thank you to Rahim and Rooster Cafe for supporting our project again!

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.
