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.

You are invited to participate in a very rewarding event, packaging meals for well-deserved people.  Together with your help, our goal is to package 60,000 meals. Please bring an item for our local food bank, so we can feed the hungry within our community as well.
Meal packaging takes place on Feb 22, 2020 at the OLPH Catholic Church in the basement located at 13 Brower Drive Sherwood Park. We need approx 125 volunteers from ages 6 and up to help package the meals in an assembly line fashion. It is a fun way to spend time with friends and family for a wonderful cause. We have 2 shifts that you can choose to attend: 1st shift is 8:30am-12:00pm and the second shift is 12:30-4:00pm. 
Your presence will go a long way to change someone's life. Last year's recipients were the Edmonton Inner City Soup Kitchens, Northern Canada remote communities as well as International Communities in need. On behalf of the Rotary Club of Sherwood Park, The OLPH Knights of Columbus, Emmanuel Foundation, and The OLPH Society of St. Vincent de Paul. THANK YOU in advance for volunteering your time for this very worthy cause!

On March 16th the Rotary Club of Sherwood Park and the Rotaract Club of Strathcona County teamed up to host the first annual Rotary Beach Party. The sold out event encouraged guests to don their favourite summer outfits and enjoy music, dancing, food, drink and most importantly, good company! A silent auction, 50/50 and wine raffle rounded out the event and added some friendly competition... 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! Thank you to everyone who came, had fun, and supported Rotary in your community! Watch for your invite to the 2020 Rotary Beach Party!

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.
 
Congratulations to Linda Osinchuk, Charlie Teeuwsen, and Glen Hilling for their generosity this past year!!

It was a great time of Rotary Service and Fellowship!
