January 3, 2023 - This Is Rotary
Rotary January is Vocational Service Month
 
The ZOOM meeting was opened by President Alan with O Canada.  There were eventually 11 of 14 members present.  Alan read the Treaty 6 Acknowledgement:
 
We acknowledge that the Rotary Club of Camrose Daybreak is located on Treaty 6 land. This is the traditional territory and an ancient gathering place of many Indigenous peoples for thousands of years.
 
We recognize that we are all Treaty people and have a responsibility to become aware of our shared history, understand the Spirit and Intent of the Treaties and by doing so we can honour the past, be aware of the present, and create a just and caring future built upon Peace, Friendship, and Understanding.
 
Business
  1. MSC Cliff, Morris We meet by Zoom to pass motions to spend money.
  2. MSC Chris, Larry We donate $500 to the AHS MOVE Your Mood Program for Seniors.
  3. MSC Odell, Chris We donate $500 to “Lemonade Day”. 
  4. Morris that the Dolly Parton Imagination Library for the city and county of Camrose was completely subscribed at 250.  The RCC has voted to increase the limit to 300 children as there are children on the waiting list.  The money for the first three years thru donations in memory of Robyn Gray is in place.  After the first three years the cost will be $15,000 per year to continue the program, our share would be $5,000. Corporate donations and grants will be sought to provide these funds.
  5. MSC Odell, Cliff We increase the cap to 300 children for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program.
  6. Morris, after all agreed we would never hold TV Bingo again, that we transfer the funds from the Bingo Account into the Casino Account.  All agreed.
