The Parks Foundation has honoured Rotary Club's contribution to the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway by dedicating a tree in the name of “Rotary” at Manmeet Singh Bhullar Park in NE CalgaryI  The tree will be planted this spring when the Park is developed.
The bench our club has donated will be installed fall of 2018 once the park is completed.
 
 
 
We don’t remember days, we remember moments.
 
Can you image waking up one day and remembering nothing?  Not being able to remember the day you started your company, or the day you fell in love?  Not being able to remember the birth of your first child and not being able to remember your first Rotary meeting.
 
This happens every day to people across our city and our district.  These are people that need care and they need people and facilities to provide that care.
 
With a gap in Calgary's senior and dementia care facilities, Rotary has taken the opportunity to embrace the ageing population by partnering with Bethany, a leader in southern Alberta’s senior care sector. Bethany has over seventy years of experience and established dementia care expertise.
 
As partners, we are not only committed to providing the best care for the people that built our city and our province but also in bringing forward the stories of incredible people doing incredible things in senior care.  On September 28th, we would like to invite you to a screening of Alive Inside, a cinematic exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our souls and uncover the deepest parts of our humanity.

On Thursday, July 27, friends, family and fellow Rotarians of Dick Roscoe came together to witness the unveiling of a bench at Rotary Challenger Park dedicated to Dick.
 
The event began with lunch and some opening words for Christine R. who offered introductions.  
We then proceeded to the bench area where speeches continued.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
