Comments from our Guests and Members
Members and guest attending our weekly meetings are very important to us. Based on your comments we are able to produce many more educational, inspiring and entertaining weekly meetings.
Following are some of the comments we have received. Would you send us your comments please?

Canadians have believed that their history is boring compared to that of the United States. It is however the contrary. We have people such as colorful characters such as Sam Steele who was a Mounted police that lived in the North. Many moments in history involve him. We also have famous historian and story tellers such as Pierre Burton that have brought these to our attention through books and television. The Yukon gold rush is one of them. Canadians fought bravely and were instrumental in defeating the Germans in WWII. The past history was not always polite and nice either.
According to Chris Turner it is full of a tremendous amount of color.

Lisa Genova What you can do to prevent Alzheimer's TED talk was very informative and helpful since I'm in the target group.  I've always been physically active and this was one of the main health contributing things we can do to delay Alzheimer's.
Phyllip Pressey, Rotary E-Club of Canada One, D-5370

The world of bionics has certainly come a long way. This has certainly turned negatives into positives with people's lives, and as pointed out may even surpass what was once considered normal for people. We will see lots more in the future.

Dear fellow Rotarians,

There has been an outpouring of heartfelt messages since President-elect Sam’s passing last week. Rotarians and members of the public have been sharing memories and recalling how Sam inspired them through his hard work as a Rotarian and as a dedicated civil servant. It is clear that his impact and legacy were felt worldwide.

Memorial contributions in honor of Sam will be directed to the Sam F. Owori Memorial to Polio. This fund has been established to honor his commitment to Rotary’s polio eradication efforts. Sam was a member of both the Africa Regional PolioPlus Committee and the International PolioPlus Committee. You can make online contributions to the fund here:

The 2017-18 nominating committee will select a new president-elect, in addition to the president-nominee, during its scheduled meeting in early August.

Thank you all for your continued support during this difficult time.


Ian Riseley

Rotary International President, 2017-18
