Dear Rotarians,
 
A further update for you, enabling you to make  appropriate decisions regarding your donations in support of The Fort McMurray disaster.
 
Many Rotarians have advised me that they would like to donate via District 5360 so we do have another option for you. From a District point of view these are three ways you can donate although there are of course many others:
 
- Donate through Red Cross.
 
- Donate directly to  District 5370`s Charitable Foundation at www.canadahelps.ca/rotarydistrict5370  (Notation: Fort McMurray Fire relief fund)
 
- Donate to District 5360 via The Rotary Club of Canmore Charitable Foundation at   www.rotaryclubofcanmore.ca/charitablefoundation  .  Click on the `Fort McMurray Relief Fund link and select ``choose this cause``. This takes you to an ATB web site . By going this route all donations will be matched by 15% by ATB. Tax Receipts will be issued for all donations $25 and over.
 
Cheques can also be mailed to:
The Canmore Rotary Club Charitable Foundation
P.O. Box 8025, Canmore , AB  T1W 2T8
(Memo: "Fort McMurray Relief Fund")
 
 
The idea here is that once funds have been collected  we will then to talk to Fort McMurray Rotarians and District 5370 to determine where these funds could be best utilised, as the town starts to rebuild.
A committee consisting of Canmore Rotarians along with other District representatives will then make decisions and forward funds to District 5370 Charitable Foundation which will then be responsible for fund disbursement. You will then be advised what your donated funds have gone towards.
 
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Canmore Club for agreeing to take on this task on behalf of The District.
 
Hopefully this will answer many questions that you might have. There will also be an opportunity at our District Conference to donate.
 
Thank you very much for everything you are doing.  I have heard of a number of wonderful donations already.
 
In Rotary

Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
Health: Survival of the Fitbittest
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian In the seven days from 7 through 13 March, I took precisely 84,250 steps. This amounted to 39.85 miles. I also climbed 288 floors and burned 22,055 calories. I’m fairly certain that you, gentle readers, could not care less about those statistics. Unless, of course, you’re one of the millions of gentle readers who have joined America’s fitness self-surveillance movement by strapping a tracking device to your wrist. In which case, you are probably pretty darned impressed by my stats. I should therefore add a few crucial caveats. Caveat No. 1: That week...
