SPEAKER this week
Lyle Johnson lives to outside the box to create better lives for those underserved in our community and beyond. 
It was this passion of his that attracted him to join the Rotary club of Sherwood Park in 2013 and has since then been an active member of the club.  In his time with our club, he has championed so many projects and also led the club as a President in the 2018/2019 club year. 
Lyle, a great visionary and a great family man, lives in the Stratchcona area and oversees the Emmanuel Foundation which serves the poor in tangible ways.  Lyle, a dynamic speaker, will be sharing a tidbit of his life story and his Foundation on September 18, 2020.  
For member interest there was a survey conducted recently amongst Edmonton regional Rotary Clubs. The intent was to find out what clubs are expecting members to pay for dues and meals. Of the 19 clubs that responded there were 13 that had dues higher than ours. Some still charge a fixed fee for meals like we did in past.
Last Week's Speaker
As this was the first meeting after a several week Christmas break we had several announcements.
We took a moment of respect for the victims and families of the plane crash in Iran. It never ceases to amaze how world wide events can affect us. Paul Humphreys had a colleague from the Mechanical Engineering Department at U of A who was on the plane.
Shine told us to watch for information coming on Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.
Neil is looking for help on 9 May to build beds for Sleep in Heavenly Peace. This will be a big build requiring lots of labour.
Brenda told us of a project the International Service Committee is considering. The goal is to help an Albertan Rotary Club partner fund a project for school children in Rwanda.
There were 6 members of our Interact Club present. Two of them immigrated to Canada in the past 5-6 years. They spoke of the joys and challenges coming from a different country and culture.

This Week's Speaker

Steve Lee will run a tutorial on how to use Facebook and other social media.
