October So Far...
We heard from Fran, our exchange student for Austria.  She told us about her country (not Australia), her family, hobbies and what she would like to accomplish while she is here.
 
 
We also heard from Elly and Ramiro Contreras about the Rotary District 5370 Conference that is being held in Edmonton next year from September 17 to 19th.  
Games Night to End Polio 
Lots of fun was had by all who attended.  There was a great turn out with some spouses also joining in on the fun.  
 
When the poker was finished, it was Uno Time!!!!!
 
 
 
Fran is smiling because she managed to take out Brad, Allan P. and Anne.  Great job!
 
Santa Teresa Water System Inauguration
News from Bill Stumbaugh, our Rotarian partner from Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador...
 
Dear Fellow Rotarians Supporters of Project Santa Teresa,
 
On Saturday, October 19, the Santa Teresa community water system was inaugurated by the community water board with Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Bahia de Caraquez present as well as the local director of the Ministry of Water.  This is a huge achievement for the community, and the support of the several international Rotary Clubs was critical for this humanitarian improvement.
 
Attached are several photos showing different aspects of the event including two separate ribbon cuttings--one at the treatment plant and storage cistern and tank as well as at the water meter at one of the beneficiary┬┤s home.  Also photos of various individuals speaking to commemorate the event.
 
Note the temporary, large banner listing all of the contributing clubs.  Each of yours should be indicated.  A permanent sign of the same design is being constructed at this time and when completed will be placed in the community.
 
We'll continue with the school and community training about best practices for personal hygiene and protection of water sources.
 
Thanks for all your support.

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!!!!
