Greeter this week: Anre McIntosh

Hello everyone, my name is Anre McIntosh. I am the Foundation Chair for e-club Canada One. A short while ago Dr. Bob Scott gave a talk on the polio eradication efforts Rotarians are involved in through Polio Plus. After which I presented one of our E-Club members with a Paul Harris+1 recognition.
How many of you know what this recognition is? It is a recognition for donating money to the Rotary Foundation, recognizing donations in increments of $1000 USD.  How many of you know what the Rotary Foundation is? What it does? How it supports our club projects?  How many of you donate to the Foundation? I hope to answer these questions and more in the next few months through my greeter messages.
The Rotary Foundation was set up and is funded by Rotarians to "do good in the world". One important thing to know is that the Foundation is not a first responder. It does not go into disaster zones to offer immediate assistance. That is why in the aftermath of fire, floods and earthquakes you do not hear of the Foundation providing assistance.
Projects funded by grants from the Foundation occur several years later when things have "stabilized". These projects support doing good in one of the following six areas: promoting peace, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, growing local economies and fighting disease.
If you donate to the Foundation, thank you. If you have never donated, consider donating this year.  Donations can be made monthly, as I do, irregularly or at any interval and amount that works for you. Consider making a donation to recognize birthdays, anniversaries or other significant life events such as graduations, weddings or new grandchildren.
 If you have any questions, please ask. Contact me via ClubRunner.

Having travelled to quite a few countries in Europe and Asia I can only imagine some of the places and situations that Cassie found herself in but she survived everything to tell her story.

There is a star KIC8462852 that has was detected by the Kepler mission who's light is dimmed by something 1000 times larger than planet earth. There are many theories as to what it is. They range from dust clouds, hundreds of thousands of comets to alien mega structures to capture energy.

News From The Rotary Family
Report from San Juan de la Maguana, Dominican Republic

Hogar de Ancianos is a complex that is the home for 20 seniors in San Juan de la
Maguana, Dominican Republic.
The building is owned and maintained by the government, but day to day
operations need to be met through donations and gifts.
We checked with the staff and asked what they were most in need of.
During Canadian Thanksgiving we delivered the following goods to the seniors
thanks to the funding provided by the Rotary Club of Canada One as part of the
celebration of Canada 150:
Rice (275 lbs!), cooking oil, oats and chocolates.
They feed some 25 people daily and the rice will be enough for all the meals for
about 40 days!
Thank you, Rotary E-Club of Canada One, for allowing us to participate in this
project in the community where we live.
Peter Denooy and Ileana Moreno

November is Foundation Month

Rotary Minute
Submitted by Sharon Blaker (who's actually in the video; see if you can spot her)

"I chaired this committee for 3 yrs and it is the largest fundraiser for the Chilliwack Rotary Club.  Happens every year in October since 1984.  Uses the slogan 'Buy! Read! Return!". It's quite the event in Chilliwack, BC!  I will again be volunteering this year."

Food for Thought

"As one who has participated in sports all my life, I am a great believer in
teamwork. In sports, one learns early on that teamwork is absolutely essential
to a team's success....An individual star...will not assure victory unless there
is coordination, cooperation, and a team spirit among the players....So is
[teamwork] vital to Rotary....Rotary cannot achieve complete success without the
participation and cooperation of all members of the team."

- Teamwork - Indispensable to Rotary's Success, THE ROTARIAN, January 1982

Rotary Jukebox
For a small donation, your favorite musician will be featured on one of our next e-meetings for everyone to enjoy.
Every week we'll have a draw and the lucky person will see their song featured!
