September 19, 2019 Meeting/Tour
As has been announced at our weekly meetings over the last while, we are cancelling our normal Thursday Sept 19th morning meeting and instead have a tour of the new Science Commons Building (formally the Destination Building) at the University of Lethbridge.
Meet at 6:55 AM Thursday September 19th
How to find the Science Commons Building:
Turn left on southbound University Drive onto Valley Road (the main road into the University).  Follow Valley Road to the very ends at Parking Lot S and the Science Commons Bldg is adjacent to that lot.
See the campus map attached.
Where to park:
Park in Lot S just north of the Science Commons Bldg. You needn't pay nor will parking passes be provided to us. Instead, Parking Services have agreed to have their ticket attendants monitor other lots first when they start at 8:00 AM. So we will be finished our tour prior to them monitoring Lot S.
Where to meet:
In the front entry of the Science Commons Bldg inside the west facing doors at the Periodic Table.
Further details:
The tour will go from 7:00-8:00 AM with allowance for those who can stay to carry on until 8:30 (it really needs 90 minutes I'm told)
Please RSVP:
I've been asked to provide a head count, so if you intend to come (okay for spouses to come too if you wish...just let me know), please advise me by Monday September 16th.
Thanks all. Should be interesting.

September Dates to Celebrate
Hurricane Dorian
There has been a call out to Rotary for assistance to the Bahamas in the horrific wake of Hurricane Dorian. Here is the link for information and donations:
The value of diversity, equity and inclusion
I am proud to say that compared to 2018, we had triple the number of Rotarians and their guests march in the Calgary Pride Parade on August 31st!
The value of diversity, equity and inclusion in our communities is increasing with more attendees than ever showing up in support.
In January 2019 Rotary International's announced it's policy for diversity, equity and inclusion statement for Rotary as follows:

As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Rotary will cultivate a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture in which people from underrepresented groups have greater opportunities to participate as members and leaders.

Rotary International also updated its policy on adult harassment and requested the general secretary to provide training resources to club and district leaders regarding maintaining harassment-free environments at Rotary meetings, events, and activities.

I truly believe that through education, there comes understanding and acceptance. Kindly take your Rotary journey through adherence to Rotary's 4-Way test and the Rotarian's Code of Conduct.
In Rotary Spirit,
DG Christine Rendell
