On Thursday, November seventh, members of the Rotary Club of Prince Albert visited Mont St. Joseph Home to present a donation from the proceeds of the 2019 Wine Premier. This year the Wine Premier raised a total of $22,000 to be donated, half of which was designated for Mont St. Joseph Home, and the other half designated for the Rotary Centennial Project, which will be announced at a later date. Rotary members presented Mont St. Joseph Home with a cheque for $11,000, seen in the photo below. Thank you for all of the support we received to make the Wine Premier a success!
Saturday the twenty-sixth of October was the twelfth annual Rotary Wine Premier, sponsored by B&B Construction and many other generous sponsors. The evening was a great success, boasting a full house, live entertainment, and the presence of the makers of the evening's wines from Italy and Australia.

Rotary Club of Prince Albert had an important visitor on Monday: District Governor Fred Wright. The District Governor gave a presentation on the importance of fellowship, understanding others, and being positive. Mr. Wright discussed the need to tackle child poverty, as 26.7% of children in Saskatchewan currently live in poverty. Many children also live in toxic environments, whether it is toxic from abuse, violence, or homelessness. District Governor Wright highlighted that these situations can also be turned in a positive direction, as community service organizations like the Rotary Club can help to improve their communities. It is possible to make a difference in the lives of children, and that connecting and engaging with the community is important. Seen in the image below are District Governor Fred Wright (left) and Rotary Club of Prince Albert President Joe Weinrich (right).
 
President Weinrich took a moment at the beginning of Monday's meeting to appreciate his predecessor John Morash for his diligent work as President by presenting him with a lovely plaque and recognizing his accomplishments. In the photo below, Rotary Club of Prince Albert President Joe Weinrich (left), and past Rotary Club of Prince Albert President John Morash.
 
What began as a dream nineteen years ago came to fruition today with the completion of the final section of the Rotary Trail. Spanning twenty-two kilometers, this trail is meant to not only be multi-use, but meant to be accessible to people of all walks of life. Today, Rotarians, sponsors, and community members gathered for the completion of this nearly two-decade-long project. Although at first a project of this size seemed like an impossible task, today proved that dedication and persistence can make dreams happen. 
 
Rotary Club of Prince Albert would like to thank the incredible sponsors of the trail for both monetary and in-kind donations, as well as the community for donating time and support. Thanks also goes out to everyone who attended the completion ceremony today to celebrate!

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) Camp
- Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Prince Albert, Rotary International District 5550.
Strong leaders are made, not born. Leadership skills are learned, not inherited. Rotary Clubs around the world are dedicated to helping young people like you develop your leadership skills to the fullest. We believe that RYLA Camp will assist you in realizing your leadership potential and have a whole lot of fun along the way!
 
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Knowledge + Action = Results.
RYLA camp is focused on leadership development.
Join others your age in a camp atmosphere to learn skills in self-management. Learn about yourself and others. Learn how to interact with your peers. As you approach graduation, come and learn how to make critical decisions that will affect the rest of your life. Learn how to apply the knowledge you have learned. Learn how to be a leader and a follower. Learn how to trust and be a team player.
 
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?
RYLA camp is an all-expense paid camp.
Learning is interspersed with recreational activities, campfires and good food. The learning experience is set in Riding Mountain National Park on the shores of Clear Lake at Anglican Memorial Camp. It is extremely beautiful there. We will transport you there and back.
When you arrive you may not know anyone. By the time you leave you will have made friends that could last a lifetime. Camp RYLA proves you can have fun while learning and growing. It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have not been before. Test your limits. Break through barriers.
 
THERE ARE TWO CAMPS:
Basic Camp - July 29 to August 3, 2019 if you are 12, 13 or 14 
Senior Camp - August 5 to August 10, 2019 if you are 15, 16 or 17.
