This Week's Meeting
This week's meeting we will hear from:
Angela Fetch Muzyka
Coordinated Suicide Prevention Program

The Coordinated Suicide Prevention Program is our partner in the Rotary Run for Life, and next week is suicide prevention week.  Come learn about all the things the Coordinated Suicide Prevention Program is doing at the tri-municipal region and the suicide awareness events going on next week.

Suicide Prevention Week
Suicide Prevention Week (September 8-14) kicks off in our area with the Rotary Run for Life on Sunday, September 8, in support of the Coordinated Suicide Prevention Program (CSPP) and other mental health initiatives.  On Thursday, Angela Fetch Muzyka from CSPP will speak at our Rotary meeting to tell us what the program is all about.  There are a few more suicide prevention and awareness events in the area you should be aware of.  Details of each event are available by clicking on the links below.
  • Into the Heart of Suicide - Making sense of suicide at a root level through the most powerful force that drives us: our need for connection.  This talk by Eugena Maguire is being hosted by the CSPP and Stony Plain FCSS on Monday, September 9.  Tickets cost $10.
  • You are Tough Enough - Bring the family to help build garden beds for World Suicide Prevention Day on Tuesday, September 10 at the Spruce Grove Ag Society Community Garden at 455 King Street, Spruce Grove.
  • safeTALK - Suicide Alertness for Everyone - a half-day workshop to learn the signs and how to get help for someone at risk of suicide. Thursday, September 12 5:30-9 PM in Spruce Grove.
Pints for Polio
The Rotary Foundation's most important goal remains the eradication of polio, a disease on the verge of disappearing, but one that still threatens to reinfect the world through the ubiquity of international travel and misinformation about the safety and effectiveness of vaccinations.  While polio is only endemic now in Afghanistan and Pakistan and that seems like a world away, there is something you can do to help Rotary and its partners wipe the disease off the face of the earth forever: eat wings, drink beer, and have fun!
On Wednesday, September 18 at 7:30 PM, join us at the Beer Hunter (140, 700 McLeod Ave, Spruce Grove) for our first annual "Pints for Polio" fundraiser.  100% of ticket sales go to The Rotary Foundation's End Polio Now campaign.  10% of food and drink sales that night will also be donated to the cause.  Your $15 ticket gets you in and gets you entered to win door prizes!  Ask any Rotarian you know for tickets, or contact us at or (587) 763-0250.  See our Facebook page for more details.
Recent Resignations
It was announced at club meetings over the summer that long-time Rotarians Arlaine Monaghan and Jan Vanderbij have decided to resign from Rotary.  If you haven't been with us much over summer, you may not have known that.  Please reach out to both former members to wish them your best.  You can contact Arlaine at and Jan at
Notice of Board Meetings
Members of the club are encouraged to attend and observe our monthly board meetings.  For the 2019-2020 year, they will be held on the fourth Wednesday of every month at the clubhouse in Rotary Centennial Park beginning at 7:00 PM and ending at 8:30 PM.  If you can't attend in person, we are also now able to bring you in remotely using Zoom's online meeting software.  The URL for the meetings will be the same from month to month, so you may want to bookmark this address:  Hope to see you there!
Attendance at Weekly Meetings
Just a quick reminder that if you are going to be away and won't be attending a weekly meeting, can you please indicate by clicking the "Can't Make It" Button.  The email comes out on Fridays and is called the "May Rotary Meetings" or whichever month it is.  The email comes from Crystal Desilets.  I use this info for informing Shotz how many people will be there for lunch.  Also if you are bringing a guest could you fill in the "Bring a Guest" button.  Thanks for helping out with this as it's makes my job easier if I have all the information.
