People of Action Projects
 

At its October 3 meeting, the Rotary Club of Spruce Grove passed its 2019-2020 service projects budget, which includes a $37,000 line item for "People of Action" projects.  Each member of the club will be allocated $1000 to use on one or more service projects important to them.  At our meeting on Thursday, October 10, Service Projects Director Neil Hollands will provide us more details of how you can put these resources to use, including guidance for sharing and developing project ideas, getting your project approved, and taking action!  Neil will send out some preliminary information by email before Thursday's meeting.

Busy September For Our Club
 
We held a BBQ at the new RCMP detachment to welcome our neighbours.  It was very much appreciated by the officers and the support staff.
 
 
We got out and did Highway Cleanup on the not so warm day.  
 
 
And we heard from our now returned outbound exchange student, Marika, about her time spent in Switzerland.
 
Noah in Finland
Our outbound exchange student, Noah Fouillard, is settling in well in Finland and enjoying school there a lot more than here, from the sounds of it.  We expect to hear from Noah a few times this year.  If you want to reach out to him by email, contact him at noahjfouillard@gmail.com.  Noah provided us a copy of the slideshow presentation he gave at our club about a month ago.  This is the presentation he will be giving to his Finnish host Rotary club sometime this year.  https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1XQQ_Cdpqbcsn4xtGaCEScJ3EKNj1_edVTycYNVRzCRo
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:  https://zoom.us/j/224919848.  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.
Have Information for The Rotary RAP?
Have a Rotary Story, pictures from a Rotary Social and/or information for the Rotary RAP?  
 
Send me (Krista) an email:  krista.mastaler@gmail.com by Sunday evenings at the latest so that I can include it in the weekly RAP on Mondays!
 
Thanks everyone!!!!
