Rotary Club of Canmore Supports YWCA ‘Higher Ground’ Project

WHAT WOULD WENDELL SAY?

 

I ask myself, what would Wendell say?” That was Bruce Keith, Rotarian and former President of the Rotary Club of Canmore, at a Jan. 4, 2017 club assembly meeting called to decide on the disposition of the proceeds of the sale of Canmore Rotary House.  I never met Wendell. He died in March of 2011, shortly after I joined the club in November of 2010, but this story starts with him and the legacy he left behind. I

Ruben Solano Magana is our club's new exchange student from Mexico.  Ruben is a fine young man, who speaks English very well and is also available to any members who would like to practise their Spanish!  I know several members who spend time in Mexico and who could perhaps even drop in on Ruben's family for a "Rotary Family Visit".  Ruben will be with us for the next year and is currently staying in Banff with Amber and her husband - we'll keep you posted when he moves.  Make sure you pick him up for adventures or a meal or a tour of your favourite spots in our area or farther away.  We want him to have a great experience here in Canada.  Ruben is helpful and polite, with entertaining stories at our weekly meetings.  Make sure next week he is talking about his latest adventure with YOU!  
It's that time of year to submit our membership dues to the Club for 2016/17.

You can pay in one installment, or with two cheques (one post-dated to January 1) or by monthly deduction from your bank account. 

Automatic bank deductions

To initiate the automatic monthly deduction, please use this form and submit both your completed form and a cheque marked “void” to Ron Lewis at the next meeting you attend.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
