Amarok Update
COVID-19 has reached a new height of infections as of mid-July, penetrating every slum in which we operate. The healthcare system is woefully underequipped to deal with or track an outbreak of this magnitude. The best calculation we can get on COVID’s impact is through the grave diggers who, by mid-June, were burying 10 times the number of people on a daily basis as pre-COVID-19.
But the immediate impact on the physical health of people is only part of the story.
Blood Donor Clinic July 31, 2020
I received this letter (attached) today from Olga, my contact at the Canadian Blood Services (CBS).
I did ask if the age restriction is still applicable and was told it is NOT, so our “older” members can volunteer.
We need to let our members make note that the clinic starts at 2:30 and not 3:30 as is usual. The shifts would be….
2:30 to 3:45
3:45 to 5:00
5:00 to 6:15
6:15 to 7:30
7:30 to (about) 8:30

Fundraising Committee Report 
The Fundraising Committee, (Ways and Means) is initiating a fundraising campaign to generate funds for the 2020-21 Rotary Year.
We have established that our website,, is a place people can donate or find out how to donate..
1.  People can click on a Donate Button at the top of the page and make a one time or monthly contribution.  It is made through Canada Helps.  Canada Helps directs the funds to our District Foundation in our name.  Canada Helps charges 3% for this service.  We receive 97% of the donation.  Canada Helps issues a receipt immediately.
2. There is also a Donate Form a little further down on the page that explains our plan and how one can make a donation by contacting a club member or calling our number.
Our goal is to generate $100 000.00.  If we get a contribution from 1% of our 13 000 households in Spruce Grove we will achieve that goal.  
The Fundraising Committee will be reaching out to individuals and businesses.  We are asking club members to also reach out to their friends/community to see if a donation can be made.  We can send people to the website,  Remember that any donation is fine and can be easily made on the website. We are expecting to increase the awareness of our club as well as the number of community members making a contribution.
Please check out the website.
Allan Pawlowich and the Fundraising Committee.
