We seek to understand Indigenous Cultural Values. 
We aspire to co-create a safer space in our Club by listening and speaking with humility, respect and curiosity.
Come as you are with your unique gifts to a shared table.
Above all else, we will ask:

Wayne McCutcheon and Marilyn Mucha have made contributions along with their commitment and have recieved their pins and acknowledgement. 
 
Want to make a contrition?  No amount is too small. Every dollar helps.  

The polio eradication campaign needs your help to reach every child. Thanks to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, your contribution will be tripled.  To donate, visit endpolio.org/donate.

Our Pints for Polio event netted $ 100 towards our club contribution and attracted a new donor - Terry Mucha to Polio Plus Society. 
Thank you for everyone's participation.

Our Festive Feast on December 16, 2023 had more than an abundance of delectable dishes shared by our attendees.  We also had a double induction of our newest members.  Sami Zaman and Olesia Linkevich were officially inducted to the club by co-President Shelley and Membership chair Yvonne.
Olesia is a Ukrainian newcomer who fled the war and was hosted by member Marilyn Mucha.  She has a masters in Psychology and works as an Executive recruiter at Gallagher's. 
 
Sami came to Canada a number of years ago from Pakistan and is a project engineer.  He is an active and eager volunteer and  looks forward to doing more to make a difference in our community.
 
We welcome both into our fellowship and service circle.
"Giving a Future to Vulnerable Children and Rural Women and Youth"
 
April 2023 marked the launch of an impactful initiative, "Giving a Future to Vulnerable Children and Rural Women and Youth," led by the Rotary Club of Moshi in Tanzania, in partnership with the Rotary Club of YEG Passport in Canada. This venture, funded through a Global Grant, is a testament to the effectiveness of community-driven development, fully conceptualized by the communities in Tanzania.
 
For many years the stories of Black veterans were not shared in the mainstream media or textbooks.  A website has been established as a small step in ensuring these important stories are shared with the accuracy and the respect these veterans deserve. to raise awareness of the contribution made by Black Canadians who served in the Canadian Military during conflict and in peacetime. The site is a tool for educators, students and those interested in learning about the tradition of service with the Black Canadian community.  
 
Black Canadians have a long tradition of service to Canada.  All served with distinction and in some cases made the ultimate sacrifice. This Remembrance day, read more about those who served in WWI, WWII, Korea and Bosnia.  https://www.blackcanadianveterans.com/
 
 
The Sinkunia Community Garden was overflowing with an abundant harvest and numerous helping hands.  Saturday, September 23 was a warm, sunny day and the fields were revealing their bounty - beans, squash, potatoes, cucumbers, carrots, tomatos and chard were just some of the crops uncovered.  
 
Rotarians from YEG Passport and Edmonton NorthEast clubs along with Sinkunia families worked side by side to gather the crop to make available to those in the community.  It was a sharing atmosphere of food, comraderie and many smiles. The CommuniTea van also joined in to offer some refreshments and a board to catch messages of hope. 
Hope is the message that Rotary is expressing in its theme for this year.  And the garden gave all the participants hope of food sustainability.  More pictures in our Photo album. 
 
 
July 1 starts a new Rotary year and RI President MacInally has chosen a theme 2023-24: Create Hope in the World.  He calls for Rotary to create hope in the world by working for peace and mental wellbeing. He urges members to engage in tough conversations and earn the trust that’s necessary to realize these values.    Here is the new theme logo.
 
Along with a new Rotary year comes our new Club Leadership.  2023-24 brings co-Presidency of Shelley Sabo and Chris Chukwunta.  Together they bring great energy and insights into our club journey for the next year.  Show your support by coming out on July 8 to see them take the reigns and sign up to help on a commitee to generate continued momentum for our club projects and creating hope in the local and international communities we serve.
