There WILL be a meeting this week, Friday, 12 June
We are near the end of the Rotary year and Bob will host one of the last meetings as President. Look for his email invite to our Zoom meeting in the next couple of days. He will have to transfer his secret password to President-Elect Mike for Zoom meetings after June.
Speaker for this meeting will be newly inducted member Meagan Olive. Please attend and get to know her better.
Allan Babb and Rotary in the Community
Allan has been involved with the Gilmore Community League's efforts to revitalize Gilmore Park. See the connection to a Tweet from the league thanking him. The interesting note is that they make a big deal that he is a Rotarian. Good on Allan!
Strathcona Food Bank & Grocery Gift Cards
The need is great even in our community so at a recent board meeting we voted to contribute $500 to the Food Bank. Our original plan was to conduct a food drive. We were going to ask individual Rotarians to help out donating and gathering needed food. That becomes risky in this environment hence the donation of money. As individuals you can still help out by purchasing Sobeys/Safeway gift cards from Erin Stephen then drop them off or mail them to the Food Bank. This helps out our Interact Club and the Food Bank. Information on how to contact Erin follows:
Rotarians can send Erin a text. 780-235-7465 Etransfer to It doesn’t require a password. She will arrange a convenient "contactless" drop off.
The address of the Strathcona Food Bank is:
255 Kaska Road
Sherwood Park, AB

Mark You Calendars
  1. International Convention 20-26 June. Although the event in Hawaii was cancelled, RI is attempting to put together an online convention. It is easy to sign up for 1 session or many. No cost, no travel just a small time commitment to sit at your computer. Check out the following website
  2. Oktoberfest 19 September. This is still 4 months away so it is too early to cancel. The German Cultural Society still wants our help and participation.
  3. Meal Packaging Event January 2021. Following the success this year OLPH Church will be the location again.
