On Monday, November eighteenth, Rotary Club of Prince Albert members were given a presentation by Nuvo Pharms founder Jamie Novotny. Mr. Novotny is a medical advocate for the use of medicinal marijuana, and speaks from experience as someone who deals with Multiple Sclerosis and Crohn's Disease. Medical Cannabis helped Mr. Novotny to go from being unable to walk at all and not speak properly, to being able to walk and speak again, evident by his ability to present at Rotary Club luncheon. In his presentation, he detailed that there are several problems with Medical Cannabis, including that patients often have to go to the illicit market to get what they need, as many of the Cannabis producers who farmed medicinal marijuana prior to legalization turned to recreational production after legalization. Mr. Novotny is currently working on starting his company Nuvo Pharms, which will produce high quality medical Cannabis and provide patients with a safe, consistent product. Seen below are Mr. Novotny (left), and Rotary Club President Joe Weinrich.

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!

Prince Albert Rotary Club will be hosting a Pancakes for Polio breakfast on Wednesday April 13 at the Gateway Mall food court. Poliomyelitis, often called polio or infantile paralysis, is an acute viral infectious disease spread from person to person, primarily via the fecal-oral route.

Developed in the 1950s, polio vaccines are credited with reducing the global number of polio cases per year from many hundreds of thousands to around a thousand. Enhanced vaccination efforts led by the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and Rotary International could result in global eradication of the disease.

Our goal from this fund-raiser is to help reach the goal of global eradication.  

Please join us for breakfast between 7 and 9 AM.
