Each year, the world celebrates the January 25th birth of Scotland's greatest poet - Robert Burns and his many famous works of poetry and songs. This year, the Rotary Club of Edmonton's members (many of whom are of Scottish descent), will be able to participate in these celebrations at our Monday, January 20th luncheon meeting.  
 
The Chateau Lacombe's chefs have welcomed the idea of a Scottish-themed lunch for our Club and have promised to serve us an exquisite cuisine of beef barley soup, mashed potatoes (tatees), mashed turnips (neeps) and yes, even haggis! (For those less adventurous, roast beef will be available as an alternative to haggis). You will also enjoy a typical Scottish dessert - bread pudding with a side of custard. A wee dram of Scotch is available for $8 to complement the haggis and for toasting purposes.

This is a first for our Club so we have pulled out all the stops! One of Edmonton's pre-eminent bag pipers will commence the luncheon with some Scottish pipe tunes. Our speaker of the day is a member of The Edmonton Burns Club who hails from Ayre, Scotland. Alex Thomson is a Robert Burns aficionado who will tell us about the influence of famous Scots such as Burns and the many Scottish immigrants who helped in the formation of Canada as we know it today. 
 
In keeping with the theme of the day, feel free to wear Scottish tartan socks, a tartan tie or scarf and celebrate the occasion! Come ready to buy some raffle tickets as the winner(s) will enjoy a prize  of  either one of two baskets of scotch and other liquor  or a third prize of two bottles of wine.
 
If you know of someone who might be interested in joining us for this unique event, please invite them!

In June 2019, the Rotary Club of Edmonton, with the support of our presenting sponsor, the Grand Villa and Starlight Casinos, held its 2nd Annual Rotary Million Dollar Hole-In-One Golf Tournament. This prestigious event has raised in excess of $70,000 in support of the many charitable initiatives our Club supports in downtown Edmonton.  
 
In 2020, the tournament will be held June 8th at the Highlands Golf Club.  Once again, the marquee event of the day is the Million Dollar Shootout where one skillful (or lucky) golfer may walk away with $1,000,000.  It is an all-inclusive day of golf; the entry fee includes, golf w/cart, lunch, complimentary drinks, on course hospitality, dinner w/wine, prizes and celebrity appearances.  It is a perfect venue for friends, colleagues or clients to gather in support of the work of the Rotary Club of Edmonton. The 2020 tournament registration will launch in February.
