Never heard of Burns? Have you ever sung Auld Lang Syne at New Years?  Burns was the poet that composed this world wide favorite.  Funds raised will go to the Edmonton Food Bank.
                
At our club's annual "Christmas Lunch" today we followed a club tradition of making a donation to an agency in downtown Edmonton. This year, given these covid-19 pandemic times and the increased need for food security our designated charity was the Edmonton Food Bank. We combined our Christmas lunch budget of $500 with generous club member contributions of $550 to total $1,050 donation. The need is great, and every $ helps. 
Thank you to all in the club - your beating heart of Rotary continues to shine through in these most difficult of times.
Rotary Club of Edmonton has just provided Catholic Social Services (CSS) with funds for 10 Chromebooks computers for school-aged children of refugees in their Immigration and Settlement Services area.
 
In response Rachelle Nelson, Development Manager CSS, sent her gratitude for the donation:
 
Thank you for your gift of funding in the amount of $2,794.58 to purchase 10 Chromebooks for school-aged children of refugees in our Immigration and Settlement Services area. As the vulnerable youth we serve face isolation from traditional methods of education during the COVID-19 pandemic, your gift is timely.
Rotary Club of Edmonton is holding weekly Zoom online meetings on Mondays at 12 pm (noon) lasting 45 to 60 minutes.  
We welcome all to join - fellow Rotarians, former (inactive) Rotary Club of Edmonton members and guests.
 
Check out the "Events" on the right hand side of this website for speakers and topics. 
In the event description is the Zoom link to join our meeting. 
(Please note: we ask you to mute during the actual meeting to give lead to the speaker and to eliminate background noise. We will unmute all for the Q & A session.
 
Current AHS regulations state there are to be NO indoor meetings larger than 15 people.  Rotary International, and our District 5370 advise clubs to remain online. So until this changes we will continue to hold online Zoom.  
The Chateau Lacombe Hotel has told us to expect this to continue until perhaps spring 2021.
