Executive and Board for 2020-2021
President Elect Mike is putting together the leadership team for our new Rotary year. It will be a year of challenges for this community, the world and this club. If we wish to be relevant into the future we need figure out ways to adapt. When Mike calls you please give serious consideration to help the club help the community and the world.
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

Notice of Golf Tournament Cancellation for 2020
“Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Rotary Club of Sherwood Park has made the difficult decision to cancel our 28th Annual Golf Tournament planned for June 3.  We will be back next year, bigger and stronger as we celebrate our 28th Annual Golf Tournament! We hope you will support, donate or join us in June 2021 at the Belvedere Golf & Country Club.  Thank you again for your support!!”
What does the future hold in store? We don't know BUT the fall is still a ways away. This is the 30th anniversary of the club charter and if possible we would like to celebrate it in September or October.
Additionally an Octoberfest might be a good time to bring the community together for some overdue celebration. The German Cultural Society is still interested in partnering with us to put on this event.
