Comments from our guests and members 

Members and guests attending our weekly meetings are very important to us. Based on your comments we are able to produce many more educational, inspiring, and entertaining weekly meetings.

Following are some of the comments we have received. Would you please send us your comments?   
 

March 26. Lots of interesting items this week. The TED talk about sea grass is quite remarkable, something that most of us never see yet it sequesters so much carbon.
-- David Werrett, E-Club of Canada One, District 5370

The Imagine Story. I found the Imagine stories shared were ALL hugely inspiring. The ones that struck me the most were:
  • The girl who slept in a dumpster and took herself through all her schooling. Humbling to hear. So much perseverance with absolute courage and determination to achieve her dreams and goals.
  • The Random Acts of Kindness journey was such a marvellous act of selfless giving of oneself and overcoming personal challenge as a result.
  • Also, the video of the project visiting Guatemala was really well done!l
-- Brenda Race, not a Rotarian yet

March 28. I loved everything about this meeting listening to the Fur Elise video. Thanks.
-- Nance MacLeod, E-Club of Canada One, District 5370

Dianne Maroney – The Imagine Project. I was not aware that there was an Imagine Project which is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to giving kids aged 5 to 18 a voice to rewrite their own life stories. This was founded by Dianne Maroney who captured in numerous stories the lives of numerous people who inspired her.
-- Michael Thomas, Rotary Club of Stony Plain, District 5370

Our E-Club is a dynamic club comprised of ordinary working and retired people who acknowledge that Rotarians are people who are generous with their time and their resources. 

Our club and the program you have just enjoyed, either as a member or a visitor, is funded only by donations.

We are developing ideas for fundraising with our members who are scattered across Canada, USA, Central America, and Europe, but we do need your help.

As you have not had to buy lunch or travel to attend this program, please make a donation of a minimum of $10.00, considering you're saving in time and cost in appreciation for the experience you have enjoyed.
