Benefiting Children in Lethbridge
Carol Haayema
“Need to read about some positive things going on? Hearing this morning about how Rotary is benefiting the children in Lethbridge through music. Normally Rotarians read to the children and serve in other ways as well. Thank you A&W for your regular breakfasts to the children! We also heard about Play Therapy and outstanding outcome in the community as well. Interested in serving the community? Message me, Rotary is a great way and we do interesting things as well.”

Sophie Kernéis-Golsteyn

Sophie Kernéis-Golsteyn is a scientist specializing in microbiology and cell biology. She obtained her doctorate degree in microbial ecology at the University of Paris XI, France. Following her PhD she joined the laboratory of professor Jean-Pierre Kraehenbuhl at ISREC (Swiss Institute of Cancer Research), Switzerland.

Prior to moving to Lethbridge, she was a tenured research scientist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris where she developed a unique experimental model of a cell in the intestinal tract, known as M-cells of Peyer’s patch.  This work is published in the journal Science and is still used around the world (596 citations).

In Lethbridge, Sophie’s research focused on cancer and natural products at the University of Lethbridge, where she was studying cancer cell survival after treatment with anti-cancer drugs.

At Lethbridge College, Sophie has established the Microbial Research Group, which is investigating the veterinary and medical properties of native plants of Alberta.  Her group is discovering new antimicrobial properties of prairie plants, and new anti-cancer compounds in collaboration with the Natural Product Laboratory at the University of Lethbridge.

Marvellous Moments 
Marvelous Moments in May
I would like to correct and make a very important change to the poster that was sent out last week, and the link below. The correct address to send your "Marvelous moments" to is
Please check out the correct poster that is attached.
As a reminder there is an inspirational promotional video at 
As a reminder this is a call to action for you to help for 2 reasons
1) If you are experiencing a heavy heart then thinking about, appreciating and sending in one or more "Marvelous Moments" will help you.
2) If you are not experiencing a heavy heart - you can help those who are - by you sending in your Marvelous Moments you are demonstrating and modeling that this is an important thing to do for each other and our community. For many there is a stigma attached to mental illness. Stigma leads to silence! Rotarians and community leaders such as yourself can model that it is OK to share - to NOT Bottle it Up!
Share your marvelous moments to mobilize those who need to! 
Enjoy our weather, get out, go for a walk and say hello to someone - it will make their day, and yours too:)

Move For Polio 
Move For Polio
Last year our District launched a “Come Spin with Us - Polio Cycle Challenge” to raise funds for Polio Plus during COVID restrictions. The initiative was the vision of Vic Maris (RC of Sylvan Lake) and headed up by Marlene Doherty with 14 clubs participating raising over $70,000. Thanks to all for your assistance.
Marlene is back as the District Champion and this year; our goal is to have 30 clubs in District 5360 participate and raise $100,000 for Polio Plus.
We are calling this year’s fund raiser “Move for Polio”. Thanks to your feedback we’ve expanded the ways you can participate for your physical and mental well being. Not only can you cycle but you can do anything that makes you move be it walking, running, swimming, hiking, skateboarding etc.
The initiative will run from July 1st to October 24th, World Polio day and we need your help.
We would love to have a Champion for each Rotary, Rotaract, Interact and EarlyAct club.  The Champion will promote and communicate the Move for Polio fund raiser with their club . We currently have 5 “Club Champions”.
If this is something you’d be interested in then shoot Marlene an email at and become part of the “Move for Polio” team.
