Minute People:
  • Dave Panabaker provided a report on the Rotary Bingo that occurred on Sunday evening.  A low attendance at the bingo hall, plus an untimely triple payout on the last blackout game combined to leave no money for the profit pool.  The lucky winner of the guess pot was Terry Brekko who donated his winnings in honor of Marg Mazerolle, who had a very busy night as paymaster.
  • Dave Panabaker also advised that tickets for the 2022 Club 1000 raffle have arrived.  Hopefully by the end of the week, Doug Fleming and Glen Presley will start ticket distribution, before many of our snowbirds depart. 
  • Shalla Shaharyar  advised that Unisphere is hosting a community sharing circle focused on the project "What do you see when you look at me?". We are invited (first 10) to listen, understand, ask questions and contribute to the discussion. If you are interested please contact Shalla at (403) 979-2101Email: shalla4@hotmail.com. The event will be held on November 26th at 7PM at the Esplanade. Stan Sakamoto's interview will be part of this project.
  • Dawn Barr advised that a Christmas Light drive and social are planned for Wed Dec 15th.  The cost will be $20.00/person and we will meet at 5:00 pm at the Whiskey District.
  • Sue Withers advised that the Interact Club is raising funds with Poppies and the Christmas child shoe box and we can help with items to be included in the boxes and or a cash donation to assist in the cost of shipping the boxes. 
  • If you have not signed up as a member of the new Rotary Music Festival Society, please contact Anne Carrier soon.  The next AGM is November 22nd 11:45, and a revised executive will be elected.
  • Milan Vujovic thanked Rotarians for their support of Canadian Humanitarian, who had their annual fall gala coming up on Friday November 19.  A total of $45,000 was raised and Stan provided a wonderful surf and turf meal.
