She's All That - The name speaks for itself, and truly, the women in Rotary are, without a doubt, all that. This celebration, held May 9th encompassed all that women have given to Rotary, and all those that spoke, also noted how much Rotary has given to them. The May 8th event started  with a Meet and Greet Reception. Followed by the singing of O’ Canada and a Welcome. Subsequently, there was funny and illuminating tribute to the vast diversity within Rotary by Vi Becker, Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour and Wendy Andrews. Margaret-Ann's use of chemistry in the presentation was planned perfectly, and added much charisma to the entire event. The celebration of eight amazing women who have given so much to Rotary, and continue to still do so followed. Those recognized were PDGJudy Harcourt, PDG Elly Contreras-Vermeulen, PDG Jackie Hobal, Bev Bastell, Lindsey Lam, Linda Osinchuk, Karen Munjak and Mavis Jacobs. 
This awe-inspiring recognition was followed by a Toast to women, after which the guest speaker, RIVP Anne Matthews, was introduced. Anne Matthews awed the crowd with her humble, charming, speech, which was lined with humour, but effectively captured her resilience, flexibility, and strength, qualities she had gained from growing up with five older brothers. She spoke of women not only within Rotary, and their contributions in furthering Rotary, but also of women around the world; particularly in third world countries who do not have the opportunities we think are rights, and the basics we don't think about at all. Following this speech, which left many of us inspired and eager to do more, was the closing remarks and the end to a very successful, and brilliant event.  Frank and Tammy drove in from Red Deer ot attend the event as well.

A Little Humor 
English is a crazy language. 
Let’s take the word box, and learn plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose will never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.
If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why could the plural of booth not be called beeth?
Then one may be that, and there would be those,
Yet hat in the plural would never be hose,
And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren,
But though we say mother, we never say methren.
Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,
But imagine the feminine: she, shis and shim!
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? 
If Father is Pop, how come Mother's not Mop.??????
We always knew English was a difficult slanguage, spoken by linguistic geniuses. Or should it be Gennii?

The Object of Rotary
In some areas of the world weekly Rotary club meetings begin with all members standing and reciting the Object of Rotary. This statement, which comes from the Constitution of Rotary, is frequently seen on a wall plaque in Rotarians' offices or place of business. The Object of Rotary is "to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise." The statement then lists four areas by which this "ideal of service" is fostered: "through the development of acquaintance as the opportunity for service; the promotion of high ethical standards in business and professions; through service in one's personal, business and community life; and the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace." The Object of Rotary has not always been expressed in this manner. The original Constitution of 1906 had three objects: promotion of business interests, promotion of good fellowship and the advancement of the best interests of the community By 1910 Rotary had five Objects as increased emphasis was given to expanding Rotary. By 1915 there were six Objects. In 1918 the Objects were rewritten again and reduced to four. Four years later they had again grown to six and were revised again in 1927. Finally, at the 1935 Mexico City Convention the six Objects were restated and reduced to four. The last major change came in 1951, when the "Objects" were streamlined and changed to a single "Object" which is manifested in four separate ways. The "ideal of service" is the key phrase in the Object of Rotary. This ideal is an attitude of being a thoughtful and helpful person in all of one's endeavors. That's what the Object truly means.

Food for Thought

How much is your expert knowledge worth?

One of my all-time favourite business stories comes from an episode involving car maker Henry Ford. Ford had installed a huge new generator but it had ground to a halt and Ford's in-house engineers were unable to repair it or even identify the problem. So Henry Ford called in electrical genius Charles Steinmetz to help solve the problem. Steinmetz listened to the generator for two days, made some calculations, mounted a ladder and drew a chalk mark on its side. He told Ford that if his engineers would remove 16 windings from the field coil at that exact location the generator would work perfectly. He was right. Afterwards Ford received a bill for $10000. The famously parsimonious Ford was, as you might imagine, somewhat taken aback and respectfully asked Steinmetz for an itemised bill. He got the following note back: Making chalk mark on generator: $1 Knowing where to make the mark: $9999 Total due: $10000 …Ford paid the bill. So knowledge gained in a lifetime of work has value. Often over looked or under appreciated by buyers and procurement managers and Rotary Clubs.
