Home Page Stories
On Monday, Erica Bailey--a Prince Albert Rotarian--shared her story and struggle with Lipedema: a chronic, incurable condition that causes painful, pebbly, adipose tissue (pebbly fat) in the lower half of the body. This condition does not respond to diet and exercise and affects 11% of women and 1% of men. Lipedema can leave those with the condition in incredible pain and can eventually cause permanent disability as a result. Those with Lipedema also struggle with mental health issues, with sufferers assuming responsibility for not being able to get rid of the offending fat, which is compounded by the low awareness of the condition even among doctors. 
 
Thank you Erica for bravely sharing your struggle with pain, misunderstanding, surgery, and activism. 
 
 
Photo: In her youth, Erica was active in sports and physical activity. Lipedema later made these activities difficult and was not improved with any kind of diet or exercise.
We're excited to welcome everyone back in person for the 2022 Rotary Lobsterfest presented by Canadian Tire on May 14th! Tickets are on sale now at tinyurl.com/PAlobster22, and there are a limited number left, so get them before they're gone!
 
Haven't attended Lobsterfest before? You can expect fresh Atlantic Lobster (or steak if you prefer), delicious sides from My Place Catering, wine and specialty drinks, entertainment, and opportunities to participate in auctions and take home one of our many prizes donated by great local businesses!
 
Tickets are $90 each.  The event is May 14th this year.  Doors open at 5:30 at the Ches Leech Room at the Art Hauser Centre.
 
Prince Albert Rotarians were honored to receive the 2020 Premier's Service Club Award on Monday from Mr. Joe Hargrave, M.L.A. for Prince Albert Carlton. Club President Keith Fonstad received the award on behalf of the club, which marks the impact that Rotary efforts have had on the community. Thank you to everyone who supports the work Prince Albert Rotary does; whether it's through donations, participating in events, or being a member, the community makes Rotary initiatives possible. 
 
Update on the Rotary Adventure Park that will be built at the Little Red River Park in 2022:
 
  • Play equipment has been manufactured and delivered to the City of Prince Albert for winter storage, with installation planned for the spring of 2022 (this includes the previously announced amounts funded by the Rotary Club and its sponsors and supports, as well as the expansion through a partnership between the Rotary Club and Malcolm Jenkins of Canadian Tire).
  • The City of Prince Albert contractors are working to install the new bridge over the Little Red River this winter
  • Other preparation work within the Park is ongoing including forest fire management, water line installation, and trail management
  • Final design plans are being completed this winter, which will include trails, picnic sites, outdoor kitchen, bathrooms, lighting, and benches.
The Rotary Club is 90% complete in its fundraising - if you are interested in supporting the Rotary Adventure Park, contributions can be made with a credit card at Donate or by contacting the Club here.  All donations received before December 29 will be provided a taxable donation receipt that can be applied to 2021 tax returns.

On Saturday, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, destroying homes and mangling infrastructure that was already damaged from previous disasters.
 
Shelterbox is mounting a response in Haiti to provide shelter and emergency supplies for families affected by the earthquake. Each Shelterbox contains several items, including a tent, blankets, and a solar light.
 
You can help! Visit shelterboxcanada.org/donate to make a donation to help construct a Shelterbox and help a family in need in Haiti.
