The Rotary Club of Prince Albert is proud to introduce our newest event for 2021 - Valentines Day Dinner presented by Canadian Tire.
Late last year, Rotary Club of Prince Albert and the community were awarded a great honor: the Parks and Open Spaces Award. This award is given out by the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association, and all parks and trails in the province of Saskatchewan are considered.
 
We'd like to thank everyone who put in their time, effort, and financial contributions into creating the Rotary Trail. It was truly an effort by the community and we are proud to have worked with so many different people over the years.

The Rotary Club of Prince Albert is offering a unique evening of safe dining and tasting of fine wines from wine makers in Canada and Chile. Doug Reichel, our wine selection professional, and Randy Whitter of My Place Catering have created a pairing of wine and food that you can experience in your own Home Wine Premier Event.
 
Our Club is continuing its fundraising efforts during this era of COVID-19 to meet our ongoing commitments to fund community projects in Prince Albert.
 
Your participation and support of this event will allow our club to continue fundraising for our Centennial project in the Little Red River Park.
 
Orange Shirt Day is a day when we honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and promote awareness of this period of time in Canadian history.  On Wednesday, September 30, 2020, the Rotary Club of Prince Albert supported Orange Shirt Day by hosting the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Russell Mirasty.  His Honour ran the entire length of the Rotary Trail with his son, Matthew, a member of the Rotary Club of Prince Albert.  After completing the run, His Honour spoke briefly about his personal experience with residential schools and the significance of Orange Shirt Day to all Canadians. Thank you to all Rotarians and supporters who attended—we hope to see you next year!

She started at CIBC, before moving to BMO and transitioning through several different positions, eventually getting a Mortgage Broker's License. Sandy came to Prince Albert recently, and has joined Prince Albert Rotary after having participated in Rotary in the past. Welcome Sandy!

Prince Albert Rotarians are still having regular meetings from a distance. Bailey Fischl, the CEO of Pure Roots Urban Farms presented about her business, which focuses on food that is nutrient-dense and hyper-local. The idea behind hyper-local is that food is grown within communities to reduce the carbon footprint from transportation, by selling directly from grower to end consumer.
 
The process of Pure Roots Urban Farms is a vertical method and uses 95% less water, 85% less fertilizer, and 95% less space than traditional farming methods. The farms are placed as units, and work diligently to provide the highest quality produce.
 
Prince Albert Rotarians were given a great presentation about fire fighting in Northern Saskatchewan from Dean Johnson of Northern Perspective Photo. The fire season in Saskatchewan is from April to September, and Dean is stationed out of the Narrow Hills Fire base. Mr. Johnson expressed that he finds the location amazing for socializing because there is no cell service; everyone is present and spend time together on the beach and around the fire pit. Rotarians were shown incredible photos from summers spent fighting fires, which can be found on Facebook at @northernperspectivephoto, or on his website. The photo below is only one of many of his incredible photos.
 
Monday, March 30th Prince Albert Rotarians gathered on Zoom to meet from a distance. Natasha Thomson from Big Brothers Big Sisters presented on the Prince Albert chapter and how the organization is helping youth in the community. Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs youth from ages six to sixteen with a mentor to assist them with social awareness, relationship skills, decision making, self management, and self awareness. Although the match between youth and mentor typically only lasts until age sixteen, many of the relationships made last a lifetime. Prince Albert currently has thirty-five matches, but are always looking for more volunteers to mentor youth. Anyone who wishes to volunteer a few hours a week can enroll on the Big Brothers Big Sisters website.
 
Last Monday, Prince Albert Rotarians received a virtual presentation from the Canadian Cancer Society in Edmonton. The presentation discussed their program "Wheels of Hope", which offers transportation to hospitals for cancer treatments. Regina and Saskatoon already have such programs, and the program is starting in Prince Albert as well. The program would involve one van and volunteer drivers to get patients to Saskatoon for their appointments. This program helps individuals who may not have gone to their appointments due to lack of transportation, and increases their chance of survival. More information is available by calling 1-888-939-3333 or by visiting cancer.ca. The Canadian Cancer Society also has a website that connects individuals with cancer to someone else who has been in the same scenario. This service can be found at cancerconnections.ca.
