This week we were led on a photographic tour of Keith and Ted's most excellent adventures through Australia and New Zealand.  Crosswalks for the aged.  Fantastic beaches.  Glorious greenery.  Namesake beer and wine.  And apparently a couple of men who drive better on the left side of the road (as per their wives).  Thanks for taking us there by photos!
We are proud to support Danielle Skogen in her efforts with the SERnina project which provides re-usable menstrual products to school-aged girls in Guatemala.  With the $1000 cheque presented by Syl, the support we provided, helps girls  continue their education and enhance future opportunities.  Danielle also reports that a local business owned and operated by women will be producing these products.  A win-win!  
This is what we did!  Thank you for your support with the Purse for a Sister, Bag for a Mister project,  170 purses and bags for the Phoenix Safe House and Salvation Army.  
Speech & Language Works is a speech and language pathology firm in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Their client-centered team works with children and adults presenting a wide range of speech and language issues. Thanks to Sandy Redden for hosting us at her office and sharing her passion for what she does. 
Our esteemed District Governor Dan Doherty stopped at our club in his beautiful Rotary RV. 
Sunrise Rotarians met at MH Brew Co. for some great food and a pint (or two) to support our international efforts to eradicate Polio. 
A great day for a wonderful Sunrise Rotary MHC Trail walk and induction of our newest Rotarian, Chris Shorrock!  Welcome Chris!

Joined by Past President Keith and fellow Rotarians Clare and Bonnie, it was our pleasure to present recently retired Rotarian Bill Lloyd with an Honorary Lifetime Membership Award from the Rotary Club of Medicine Hat Sunrise.  The Award recognizes the highest distinction that the Sunrise Rotary Club may bestow to individuals who has contributed meritorious service in the furtherance of the Club and Rotary’s ideals and for the permanent support of Rotary causes.
 
At the same time, it was an honor to also present Bill with the Paul Harris Fellow Award on behalf of the Rotary Foundation in appreciation of the tangible and significant assistance Bill has been to Rotary!
 
It was time well spent with Bill and Fay and we wish them well in all their future endeavours!

Our Guest today was James Smith, President, Prairie Gleaners Society - James provided the following definition - Glean: to pick up and gather what is left behind.
Prairies Gleaners was established in 2009, but was inspired 18 yrs ago by the hunger and need of a Rwandan boy. 

Following Keith’s retirement (File Photo), he and Val were initially on their way to either Arizona or Hawaii, until Keith saw an advertisement for a trip to Iceland. $750 per person covered the flight and 5 nights accommodation and seemed to good to pass up! They decided to go to Iceland instead.

Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, believed that serving humanity is “the most worthwhile thing a person can do,” RI President John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen.  Germ unveiled the 2016-17 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity, to incoming district governors on 18 January at the International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.  Watch the Video here http://video.rotary.org/uE8h/president-elect-john-f-germ-2016-17-theme-address/
