Considering that this eBulletin is now for Club members only, I have decided to introduce a new feature - "The End Word" (found at the end of every eBulletin edition). I invite all members to send me your thoughts which you would like to share with fellow Club members on an issue affecting our Club or the Rotary world. Because I like sticking my neck out, I've written the second such article. Enjoy and please feel free to respond to those last words or submit your own article for future pbulication.
As per usual, we will cancel our Thursday lunch meetings during the Christmas and New Years period, which means no meetings on December 26, 2013 and January 2, 2014. We will return to our regular schedule on Thursday, January 9th, 2014.
Once again, the women of Amarok Society’s schools have asked us to relay their wishes for a happy holiday season and a happy, peaceful New Year to all their “Canadian brothers and sisters”. We thank our friends, too, for helping to draw these desperately poor and benighted women and their families into the light of the best of the world. At the same time, we’re aware, as are you, that peace won’t be created simply by wishing.
Have you ever wondered where all those video clips taken at various Club functions go?
Well, all video clips are uploaded to our YouTube account, edited, and published (with permission from the subjects) on our Home Page and/or eBulletin. To date we have 1,092 video clips in the account, many of which have been merged into longer videos like our Christmas Party Choral Performance video in this eBulletin edition.

There are numerous reasons members choose to leave a Club: sometimes it is due to relocation or conflict in schedule, other times it could be because of lack of leadership opportunities and motivation. Sometimes it is very difficult to gain the respect you deserve as a leader within a Club. Yet we are all leaders in our profession and/or community, that is why we were invited to join our Club. At the end of the day, the qualities of all members in our Club will motivate each other to work harder to achieve goals and remain part of the club.
Leadership is a quality that comes naturally to some, while others have to work very hard to be effective leaders. A good member-leader knows that it's not about them - it's about the club, club members, and the work the club does.
Although every effort is made to ensure that the content of this eBulletin is faithful to the Rotary Four Way Test, readers should be aware that this publication is not the official record of decisions made by the Rotary Club of Spruce Grove. The approved minutes of the Club constitute the one and only such record.
