Ro­tary is a vol­un­teer or­ga­ni­za­tion of 1.2 mil­lion busi­ness and pro­fes­sional lead­ers united world­wide in more than 200 coun­tries. For more in­for­ma­tion about the Ro­tary Club of Drumheller go to www.drumheller­ro­tary.com

Res­i­dents of Drumheller and dis­trict, let’s get out and show our sup­port and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the con­tri­bu­tions to our com­mu­nity made by the 2016 Cel­e­bra­tion of Ex­cel­lence nom­i­nees. The awards take place on Satur­day evening, April 9 at the Creat­a­cious Ban­quet room.

Cit­i­zen of the Year dates back to 1970. This year the fi­nal­ists are JoAnn Cun­ning­ham and Lynn Hem­ming. Ro­tary in­tro­duced the Most Cour­te­ous Em­ployee award in 1960 and the fi­nal­ists this year are Florence John­son and Deb­bie Schin­nour. And a tip of the stet­son to Me­gan Boland (Fe­male Ath­lete of the Year) and Duane Bolin (Male Ath­lete of the Year). Pick up your tick­ets at SJ Fash­ions and Cen­tre Street In­surance.

How about a di­nosaur, or two with large wing spans to pro­vide shade at Ro­tary Park? Club mem­bers have iden­ti­fied this as a project to pur­sue in as­so­ci­a­tion with Dino-Arts. The park is ex- tremely pop­u­lar and it’s felt a good ad­di­tion would be to pro­vide more shade, yet main­tain as much green area as pos­si­ble.

Ro­tary will soon have 36 mem­bers but on many oc­ca­sions that num­ber just isn’t suf­fi­cient for the club to par­tic­i­pate in ma­jor projects. Over the years non-mem­bers have stepped for­ward and as a fine ges­ture of ap­pre­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent Doug Stan­ford will ac­knowl­edge this good­will at our May 30 evening meet­ing.

Ro­tary of­fers many stu­dents trips and schol­ar­ships and now some­thing new to the area that some­one might be in­ter­ested in: Peace Fel­low­ships at mas­ter’s de­gree pro­grams in peace and con­flict res­o­lu­tion and preven­tion. A stu­dent can at­tend in­sti­tu­tions in the US., UK, Aus­tralia, Swe­den and Thai­land.

We wel­come new mem­bers Trevor Young, Brent Dueck and Lisa Hansen-Zakaruk.
