The Rotary Club of Airdrie helped at the Airdrie Food Bank with sorting and packaging of donated items and goods, under the capable direction of Brenda Grass. Instead of our regular noon meeting, we met with family, friends and helpers at the Food Bank and Past-Presidents Cameron and Mike made supper to conclude the evening on a high note. Thank you to the Food Bank for your service to our community!
 
The Rotary Club of Airdrie Dragons’ Den event was held on Tuesday evening, 28th November, at Bert Church Theatre, and $20 000 was given away to deserving Airdrie organizations. The presentations made by the organizations were of a very high standard and rewarding to listen to: What great work is being done in our community. A comment was made that it is not the amount of money that matters, but it is the number of lives that are positively affected that is significant above all.
Hank Popoff addressed the Rotary Club of Airdrie today on the Rotary Foundation. The Foundation is administered by Rotary International and it makes grants available to Rotary clubs to do approved projects.
 
The Foundation received its ninth consecutive annual four-star rating from Charity Navigator for exceeding industry standards and out-performance of most charities in similar fields of endeavor: Last rating (2016) was 100 pts/100pts. It was recognized by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in 2017 with its annual Award as the Outstanding Foundation for commitment and leadership through financial support, innovation, encouragement of others and involvement in public affairs. It also received the Gates Award for Global Health, and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has already support the Foundation’s Polio Eradication to the tune of $US 880m.
 
In Canada the Foundation is recognized by the Government for its integrity and governance by a medium term matching grant program by the Government for charitable projects.
The Rotary Club of Airdrie has contributed to this project over the past 15 years, and presented another cheque of $2500 today towards the construction of the pending new stage of the Rotary Challenger Park development.
