Several Rotarians and spouses spent Monday evening helping out at The Strathcona Food Bank. There were a few tasks that we divided up that the regular volunteers get little opportunity to complete during the day. See photos below. Thanks Shine for organizing!

Last Week's Speaker
 
Our own Rev. Doug Sedore spoke to us about 2 of his passions that the club has supported.
 
Hope in Strathcona is an organization that Doug leads and has developed over the 5 years or so in the County. The County itself along the the Ministerial Society support it financially. In 2 years it has helped 10 families. It helps with housing, furnishings, support services, and job search services to individuals recovering from drug and/or alcohol abuse. The requirement is to maintain their sobriety and progress toward independent living. The picture above is President Bob presenting a cheque from the  Rotary Club of Sherwood Park to help support Hope in Strathcona.
 
Doug also to the time to update us on his recent trip to South Africa. He went to help the school program called Seed of Hope. He visited the Zulu townships and helped at the school. This is something that our club donated to earlier.
