  • Joe Chacko joined the meeting from Calgary.
Minute People:
  • Dave Panabaker reminded Rotarians that Theresa Eisenbarth is still working on the Interact Garage Sale.  If you have things to donate, please contact Theresa.
  • Dave also reminded everyone that Rotarian Theresa has an exhibit ongoing at the Esplanade Art Gallery.  Book a time to go in and see if, you'll undoubtedly recognize some of the painting locations.
  • If you are interested in receiving an electronic version of "The Rotarian" please log onto MyRotary and follow this link.  There is a form to fill out, so you can save postage and trees.  You will need the information off the mailing label of your current copy of the Rotarian.  The link is .
  • Dieter Brand mentioned to all that paying your dues and other Rotary contributions is quite easy using the Clubrunner site.  Simply "log on", go into the "Admin" area and select "My Clubrunner"....under that tab there is a selection that is titled "My Account Balance"...simply enter the information there, include a note as to what it is for and send in on to Treasurer Gail.  Once we are "back together again", a quick demo of this can be shown at a club meeting.  If anyone has difficulty, give Dieter or Dave P a call.
  • Gail Halderman advised that the Medicine Hat Rotary Drive Thru Ribfest is a "go", for August 7, 8 and 9.  More information will be available later today and Gail will get some working groups together.  Exactly how much work is involved we don't know yet, but there should be many chances to help out over the weekend.
  • Rotarians have been invited to take part in a special Innovation Forum, being put on with CMHC and MH Community Housing Society.  The forum will take place on Friday July 17, from 9 am to noon. The project is called Systems Transformation Lab.  The intent of the project is to introduce new processes, tools and technologies to resolve complex social issues and advance the well being of all Medicine Hat residents.  If you are interested, the registration is done at this link
  • The Rotary Club received a "thank you" from the Medicine Hat High School Interact students, for our support of their club this year.  Great work by Theresa, Anne and faculty advisor Sue Withers.
  • The MH High School Interact students were recognized by the Community Foundation this week, for their help securing a grant and providing feedback on the community needs.  A donation of $2,150.00 was presented to the Food Bank on behalf of the students.  Great work!
