Our club has earned the Rotary Citation from Rotary International, the most significant award a Rotary club can achieve, for 2020-21. During a year that was challenging for many Rotarians around the world, our club demonstrated a commitment to achieve its goals, which ultimately helps strengthen Rotary and shape our future.

President's news on our Golf Tournament (abbreviated)
 

Our annual Million Dollar Golf Tournament was a smashing success.  The final numbers are not in, but it pretty clear we will exceed the $20,000 amount in the budget the Board approved a month ago.  What a great start to the fund raising year and a huge thank you and congratulations to Don McFarlane who spearheaded the event.

 

Like any successful Rotary project it was a team effort.  Nineteen members and many past members participated as golfers and many brought guests so if you use a 3:1 ratio our members were responsible for 60 to 70 of the 112 registered golfers.  By the way 112 is a record for this event.  Plus of course at least a dozen volunteers from the club, Kathe Debenham, President of the Rotaract Club and others.

 

We also received strong support from our sponsors.  31 of them including Shoot out sponsor Volvo of Edmonton, our accountants KRP, our banker Servus, CIBC, ISL Engineering, Keldar Leadership, Arbor Memorial and Foster Park Insurance to name a few of the larger contributions. See below for all the sponsors.

Sept 27th past president Don McFarland made a virtual cheque presentation for $23, 500 to CSS for Lurana Shelter and introduced Troy Davies, CEO of Catholic Social Services and Eoin Murray, Director of Development and Community Relations.    Davies mentioned the funds would go towards installing a very needed Air Conditioning unit in a hot kitchen facility in the shelter.   They are really appreciative of the support.
Golf tournament held Aug 9th was a huge success!
