Congratulations to our Rotary Club of High River e-bike draw winners. First prize goes to Nicole Walker, who wins two bikes, and second prize goes to Gerry Coakwell. 
Thanks to everyone who bought tickets, and supported us through this draw.

The Rotary Club of High River donated $30,000 towards the High River Pump Track during a cheque presentation on Nov. 20, right in front of the future pump track location. Rotary members (back-left), along with parents and pump track committee members (back-right) and kids (front) took part in presentation.

 

The High River Pump Track has received tremendous support and construction and completion of the project is projected to be done before the end of the summer

On Nov. 20, the Rotary Club of High River donated $30,000 towards the project.

Rotary Club President Damian Boyle says Rotary fundraisers have been tough to come by because of COVID, but they made a goal to donate to the High River Pump Track two years ago and they are glad that they can finally help with this donation.

“Last year we lost our two biggest fundraisers in our golf tournament and our lobster boil,” he said.

“That’s why it’s taken us so long to get to this point.”

“This is a great project for the children in our community and we are very pleased we are able to help out.”

 

The Rotary Club of High River and the Rotary Club of Okotoks have recently partnered up to start the Rotary Employment Partnership. This partnership sees Rotarians helping developmentally disabled peoples to find employment in our community. For more information please contact:

Another story about the Rotary Club of High River, and its commitment to doing International Work.
Over the last two years there have been many areas of need globally, and Rotary’s commitment to help with the Covid Pandemic in places where the situation was desperate has been a part of our focus. Dr. Pavithra, in India, directed us to a project where her Rotary club was funding a PSA Oxygen plant for their state hospital, the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital, in Chennai, India. The hospital is for everyone and has 2700 beds and treats many thousands of patients. These Oxygen plants were a response to the huge uptick of people on respirators because of Covid. In order to assist with this project the Rotary Club of High River donated $5000 (which was bumped up by one of our members to $5500 US) to the Madras India Rotary Club, in the name of Maurice Walsh, one of our past High River Rotarians. Their club then directed the funds to this worthy project.
India is one of the places in the world Covid has hit the hardest. We believe this Oxygen plant has literally saved many lives and will continue to do in the future.
George Mack, his wife Louella and his two sons Edward and Irwin moved to High River in 1905. Their daughter Leah was born in 1910. He soon became heavily involved in High River’s business and political life. In 1907 he was Town Clerk, then was on town council in 1908-09 and from 1919 to 1922. In between, and afterwards, he was the Secretary-Treasurer employed by the Town of High River from 1909 to 1919 and from 1924 to 1946 He contributed to the community through membership in Service Clubs, volunteering and fundraising for many organizations, causes and town improvement projects.  George attended the organizational meeting of the High River Rotary Club on October 11, 1928. In 1936 he served as President. In 1947 Rotary held a special evening honouring George as Charter Member and Town Secretary. He passed away in 1951.
