The flowers that we received for the garden party were absolutely outstanding. The quality and arrangement were just what we wanted. I would highly recommend and will be ordering my plants for 2020 from these folks!
—Nancy G.
Let me say thank you again for the truly beautiful flowers you supplied this past season. We used them for a wedding—the colors and mixtures were lovely and we were most impressed by all the variety.

Raffle for $10,000, Draw Jan 15

The Rotary Club of St. Albert is hosting a raffle to raise funds for two worthy efforts.

The full pot of $20,000 will see $10,000 go to the winner, with $5,000 each going toward Goodwill Industries of Alberta and the club's own initiatives including worldwide eradication of polio.

Goodwill is an organization that provides persons with disabilities with the opportunity to enhance their lives through meaningful employment. It will be opening a store in the old Rona location at 730 St. Albert Tr. sometime early next year. Goodwill already operates a Donation Centre at 2530 Tudor Glen Market.

Sales end on Jan. 10, 2021. Tickets can be purchased for $10 each, three for $20, 12 for $50, or 35 for $100.

Purchase your tickets here: rafflebox.ca/raffle/rotarystalbert. The draw takes place on Jan. 15.

District Grant News!

There is good news from the District Grants Sub-committee! After all the final reports and
tallies have been done it turns out we have some money to fund 3 to 5 more district projects.

These projects can be done locally or internationally and are 3:1 matching from the District up
to a maximum of $7,500. This means if your club can put up $2,500 the District will match with
$7,500 for a total project value of $10,000.

Go to the grants website www.rotary5360.org to apply and also find all the details on District
grants. These applications will be looked at on a first come first served basis until the funds run
out.

If you have any questions email the District Projects Team Lead, Lynn Exton
or the DGSC Chair, Jamie Moorhouse

Our upcoming District Conference, to be held in Drumheller from May 14 - 16 will have a strong focus on the House of Friendship.

RAYEC Camp, Aug 8 - 14, 2021
 
Planning is well underway for the 24th annual Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp.  
RAYEC 2021 will be held August 8 to 14 at Eagles Nest Ranch.  RAYEC is a business camp for youth aged 13-15.

The camp would not be possible without the financial support of the clubs of Rotary District 5360.  Sponsoring a camper/youth leader for the week is $1000.00. 

All camp applications are processed centrally.  Clubs are not responsible for finding a youth, however, they can encourage youth in their areas to apply. 

Visit our website at www.rotaryayec.ca for more information or contact Jodie at rotaryayec@gmail.com
