Airdrie was mentioned to have the fourth highest rate of reported domestic violence in Alberta. It is not something to be ashamed about, because shame drives to a culture of cover-up. The statistic is a reflection of the authorities and society facing the issue head-on and dealing with it.
 
All reported domestic disputes are followed-up, irrespective, although less than a fifth is found to involve a criminal offence. And that is the 'good' news, because it helps with prevention and continued care. 
We were honored with District Governor Rick Istead addressing the Rotary Club of Airdrie today.

  
 
DG Rick was accompanied by DGN Christine and he was introduced by AG Alan. The main message in Rick's address was that as an organization we've done wonderful things in this world since 1905, but our essence is being eroded by dwindling numbers globally and he called on us as Rotarians to support and strengthen our club, focus on and increase service, and enhance Rotary's public image. He asked everyone to consider the Rotary Foundation for personal donations, since it has been proven to be well managed and effective.

This year's Rotary Community Award at St Martins de Porres High School was presented to Britney Glowinski by Pieter Taljaard at the school's award ceremony on June 20th.
 
The Rotary scholarship is awarded yearly to a Grade 12 student who throughout the academic year displayed good citizen qualities, maintain high academic standards, provide leadership and practice speaking skills, applying theses qualities not only in school work, but also to volunteer experience in the church, the community and throughout the whole school.
 
The adjudication is made based on written student bio of experience, skills and future goals, which is also verbally presented to the adjudicators. The winner is presented with a check of $250 and the winner's name is engraved and put on the Community Rotary Plaque Plate. A certificate is given by the school to the student to keep in honor.

Congratulations to Rick Grass on his Monty Audenart Special Recognition Award.. and welcome to our 2017-2018 President, Cory Tretiak. Thanks again to everyone for another successful Rotary year!
 
We did it! Congratulations to the Rotary Club of Airdrie for achievement in Rotary Foundation & Polio Plus contributions. As Club President this year, so proud to receive the Governor's Award at the District Conference, recognizing our hard work & accomplishments in the 2016-2017 Rotary year. Together, we make a difference!
Rotarians from the Rotary Clubs of Airdrie, Cochrane and Brooks invested $33,000 CAD to build 10 metal fabricated homes for some of the poorest families in El Salvador. The team was led by Shelter Canada, who has built 2300 homes in the country over the last 15+ years. It was a hard working group effort by Rotarians, Shelter teams and locals all working side by side in 38 degree heat - and one of the most heartwarming experiences of a lifetime. Highly recommended to all who ever wonder if giving a hand up to those in need makes a difference - it does!
