Greeter this week: Frank Yakimchuk
One of the ways to be a good Rotarian is to serve your community beyond your Rotary Club. I have being part of the City of Red Deer Ad Hoc Safety Committee for the last 18 months.

 Recently, the proposal showing ways to improve safely was competed by City of Red Deer Staff. After a presentation by the Chair of the Committee, Council approved a motion to put it closer to it being implemented in the near future.
I was not the only Rotarian involved in this process, Ken Johnston who holds office as a councillor in Red Deer was our adviser and committee member.
Please be proactive In your community, make every effort to be a good citizen in so doing it will help you to be a better Rotarian.

I really enjoyed the speaker program for dining with dignity. There are very few people who can see others at their lowest and still be able to understand those people and give them respect regardless of their standing in society. This is heartening.

Rashmani Chakrabarty, Rotary E-Club of Canada One, D-5370

"Toilet Humour"
Interesting and informative take on a shi**y subject. Amazing how widespread the impact of something as fundamental as basic sanitation can be.

Vincent Daly, Rotary E-Club of Canada One, D-5370

Loved the use of TED talks to share meaningful stories. Also enjoyed the inspirational story of the restaurant without a cash register.
Tom Bennett, RC of Peterborough Kawartha, D-7010

Very creative idea about using vacant land in LA to grow food for the community.
I would share with others (& remind myself) you have to think outside the box.

Sandra Kelly, Rotary Sunrise, St. Thomas, D-7020

I most enjoyed the video about the implementation of solar panel systems in poverty stricken households in Arizona, the soup kitchen, and the Ted Talk about owning less.
