President Lisa Rohr - "dishing" the dessert!
Through the month of July, Rotary is helping out at Martha's Table - ensuring that vulnerable folks in our community have a healthy meal.  Research shows that helping others boosts our immunity, diminishes pain and helps us to live longer.  We're happier when we go around making others happy!  What a win-win ... if you'd like to help out at Martha's Table, come to City Lights Church on Thursdays and someone can point you in the right direction
President Lisa Rohr, Stacie Chalmers (Victims Services), Nora-Lee Rear (Women’s Shelter), Breanne and Alison (Open Door), Kelly Falardeau (artist, Burn Blankets for Kids), Gus Guzman.

Victims Services, Camrose Women’s Shelter and The Open Door each received 10 blankets as a result of support for Kelly’s project at the Rib Tickler in June as well as Kelly’s own generosity of giving back from each blanket sold.

Mona Lamoureux (left) of Canadian Mental Health Association, shared an overview of Mental Health First Aid and what we can all do to provide some immediate care to those we find in crisis.   CMHA offers a two day program to train lay people in these valuable skills. Following her presentation, President Elect Lisa Rohr (centre) presented Mona with funds for Canadian Mental Health; an organization we are proud to support each year.  Coordinating the presentation, Destiny Reay (right) who is both club member and an employee of CMHA.

Charissa Cummings of Red Deer spoke to our club about the delivery she and nine others made - a very special delivery.  These ten women packed their checked luggage with 500 Days for Girls kits and headed to Guatemala this past October. 
Through an interpreter, these women brought education on reproductive and women's health, debunked some prevalent myths and ensured that all the girls in the school, as well as their mothers, had access to sustainable hygiene through a beautiful kit sewn with love by many Canadian volunteers.  The girls and women were very receptive to the education and thankful to receive their kits. 
Charissa, a former Rotarian,  has travelled to Guatemala many times and has service connections there, particularly with Impact Ministries School and its associated projects.  She is working on laying the groundwork for setting up a sewing project there to train local girls and women to sew kits and educate the women in the villages, where access to feminine hygiene products is non-existent.
We look forward to staying in touch with Charissa as she continues to improve conditions for girls and women in Guatemala.

This Thursday, long time Augustana advocate and community leader Alan Fielding will receive a University of Alberta Alumni Honour Award. This award will recognize Alan's long term contributions to the Camrose community and beyond.

For nearly 50 years, Alan Fielding has given his time to support local and international organizations such as the Battle River Credit Union, the Battle River Community Foundation, Camrose Kidney Foundation and the Red Cross, the Camrose Daybreak Rotary Club and the Sahakarini Association, a charity that raises funds and oversees projects in developing countries. Fielding is a founding principal of Fielding & Company LLP. He has held numerous positions with the Law Society of Alberta and was known for working cases pro bono if clients were under severe financial strain.

Fielding, a long-time Rotarian, is a tireless fundraiser and volunteer, and he lives by the Rotary motto, “service above self.” He is active not only in his community, but also in his church and the university. Fielding is a passionate lifelong learner, and he continues to take classes and attend guest lectures at Augustana. Music is Fielding’s great love, and he has long been a performer and supporter of the Camrose and Edmonton art scenes.

He was honoured with a Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award in 2014, and this speaks to his altruistic nature and significant contributions to local and international causes.

Congratulations, Alan. Thank you for helping to make our community better by your efforts.

Dr. Ingrid Urberg, professor of Scandinavian Studies at University of Alberta, Augustana Campus,  shared some amazing photos and stories of her trip  from Buenos Aires to Antarctica aboard the modern "Fram".  Her encounters with penguins, fur seals and history would inspire even the most reluctant of travellers.  What an amazing world we live in - thank you for this special glimpse into a part of the planet seen and enjoyed by only a few.
