Staying Warm?!
Wow, is it ever cold outside!  Hope you are staying warm.  This just a quick reminder if you are lucky enough to be on vacation right now, please remember to mark yourself away on the attendance email.  This email comes out every Friday.  This helps me make the best estimate of attendance numbers to Shotz for lunch.  Thanks again.  See you Thursday.
My Path Partnership
From John Oldham:
Following is a letter from Natasha Rychlik, Director of the My Path Program.  Natasha presented to our club in May of 2019.  She has since sent us an email asking if we would consider a partnership with the My Path program with a focus on either or both of, sponsorship and mentorship.
The club services committee discussed this request in December and supported the idea of investigating further this partnership.
At this point we need to see who might be interested in having an initial meeting with Natasha to further explore exactly what this means.  If possible we would love to have a club member become the Champion of this project.  
Please let John Oldham know if you would be interested in being the Champion of this project or just interested in participating in a meeting with Natasha.  He will arrange a meeting in January.

ROTARY CLUB of Spruce Grove
Shotz Lounge 221 Jennifer Heil Way Spruce Grove AB
MY PATH LEARNING SOCIETY 4300 43 Street Stony Plain AB
Dear Rotarians,
I’m delighted to have begun a relationship with the Rotary Club of Spruce Grove in 2019 and to have shared the My Path Program with you all in May. The My Path Program aligns with the Rotary Club as it directly instills a sense of community, service, and friendship as a part of the daily learning curriculum. The My Path Program is a non-profit organization supported by a board made up of active citizens in this region. Learn more here about the My Path Program.
On behalf of the 70 children and youth attending Connections For Learning school, we would like to inquire about how to deepen our relationship with Rotarians. We are especially interested in trying to launch a scholarship program for families who cannot afford to participate in the My Path program. We are open to meeting with your team to learn about how to formalize this financial request of the Rotarians. We would also be interested in creating a formal mentorship role with Rotarians who might be interested in providing community leadership opportunities with the My Path students working alongside of Rotarians to learn how civic involvement benefits this region. We are thinking that there might be an interest in designing how Rotarians and students might learn together about tackling complex issues. We would like to be able to offer these scholarships by 2020-2021.
Please let us know how to proceed and thank you again for your support.
Sincerely, MY PATH Learning Society Director and Board Secretary
Natasha Rychlik and Maren Barros 780-919-3193/780-722-9641

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.
Have Information for The Rotary RAP?

Send me (Krista) an email: by Sunday evenings at the latest so that I can include it in the weekly RAP on Mondays!
Thanks everyone!!!!
