We want to say a special THANK-YOU to three community business who helped make our meal packaging event such a success! Arby's (on Wye Road) went all out and provided hot sandwiches and turnovers for the 250 volunteers! Arctic Chiller provided flats of water in their new 'green' bottles for the volunteers throughout the day and Save-on-Foods (Wye Road) gave an amazing discount for the 3800 lbs of rice that was packaged! Kudos to each of these business for their generosity - make sure you support them in return!

What could be better than out bidding your friend, getting a BBQ for a steal of a deal, and help Rotary in supporting countless local and international non-profits and service projects? Speaking of support, the list of donors for the event was a long one, and to each and every one we send our thanks. This event would not have happened without you!

The presentation of Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905.
We move close to a world of peace and goodwill with each Paul Harris Fellow contributed by members of our club to The Rotary Foundation’s educational and humanitarian program demonstrating a commitment to peace and a better life for people across the world whom (he/she) may never meet. This is a truly selfless action.

Rotary Club of Sherwood Park: Guiding Principles
Of the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
The Rotary Club of Sherwood Park is organized into five divisions to carry out the Five Avenues of Service which form the foundation of Rotary's work.  Our club, vocational, community, international, and youth service committees encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.  All members ensure that the focus of their work is Service Above Self.

Can’t attend club meetings in person.  Consider joining the first Canadian e-club.

Since the club became a provisional e-club of District 5370 in the summer of 2011, the weekly e-meetings have developed in what many call, “the most interesting and unique e-club I have ever attended”.

The e-club, which has a Canadian flavour, features speakers on many interesting topics, including Rotary programs, such as the Rotary Foundation, PolioPlus, Youth Exchange as well as topics of interest, such as the environment, culture and world affairs. Humor and inspirational moments are also incorporated into the meetings.

The weekly Rotary Minute keeps Rotarians and those new to Rotary informed and educated. Each week, attendees are welcomed by a guest or member greeter. In addition to the current weekly e-meeting, guests can choose from a large variety of archived programs which are located on the club’s website.

Monthly, on-line Fellowship time is hosted by one of the club members, prior to the board meeting.

For current or former Rotarians who are not able to attend scheduled Rotary Club meetings, such as people with disabilities, young parents or those who travel for business, the e-club concept offers a solution; Keeping them involved in Rotary and offering Service Above Self, in their communities and internationally, through the e-club.

Anyone who wishes to participate as a charter member, must have attended two e-club meetings and paid a modest admission fee (Cdn$50) to be eligible to apply for membership.
