                  BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION -                  SURVIVING COVID-19!

President Jean-Marc called on Pat Dell to introduce our Guest Speaker, Charmaine Styles, Trail Boss, Outlaw Trail Spirits. From Pat we learned that Charmaine and her husband John, own and operate Outlaw Trail Spirits located on Scarth Street in Regina's Warehouse district. Charmaine and her husband were both born and raised in Montana, but have now lived in Regina for decades. They have 2 adult children. As a dedicated volunteer, Charmaine spent time doing so in the schools her children attended, which led to increasing responsible roles in local and provincial School Board associations, including tasks which resulted in the construction of joint use schools with the Public and Separate School Boards.
In 2016 the Styles opened Outlaw Trail Spirits, a business that expanded to the point that their products are carried in over 100 liquor selling establishments.
Charmaine was invited to speak to our Club about their firm's business and how it made a "pivotal" shift from the crafting of a variety of "spirits" to the world of "hand sanitizers" because of COVID 19. When the coronavirus struck North America and arrived in Saskatchewan, their business was closed and their sales dried up. They were exceedingly thankful for their business associates and friends in the ware-house district who assisted them in getting products together and delivered to their facility so they could transform their "spirit" business into a "hand sanitizer" operation. One challenge was to get the support, registration and approval from Health Canada, which in retrospect was done expeditiously. They were successful in producing large quantities of hand sanitizer in liquid and gel and were pleased they were able to donate quantities to charities and businesses who are in the process of reopening. 
They are now slowly returning to a "spirit" focus and are pleased to be getting orders for the latter. Charmaine concluded her presentation by paying tribute to the friends and business associates in the Warehouse district for their over- whelming support which has resulted in "amazing friendships".
Thank you Charmaine Styles for sharing your story of COVID-19 survival.

Helpful Comparison
Global Polio Eradication Initiative - In the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to recognize the power of vaccines and immunizations, which save millions of lives each year. The Honourable Karina Gould, Minister of International Development of Canada, has announced new investments for the delivery of vaccines. Minister Gould committed Cdn$ 47.5 million annually over four years to support the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s Endgame Strategy. 
Remember to Thank Your MP
  • Charmaine Styles' expression of gratitude to friends and business supporters;
  • Pat Dell was looking around in the Nipawin "forest", and there on her path were a "Mommy" deer and "Baby" deer which reminded her of the importance of "stopping to  smell the roses";
  • Charles Sadzamare was happy and sad - Happy his daughter could return to her home in Zimbabwe after her COVID-19 return interruption, but sad she had to leave here;
  • Bob Durston was pleased that he has been able to participate in so many of Eastview's meetings over the past 3 months and was, for this enjoyable opportunity, making a donation to The Rotary Foundation;
  • Greg McNamara, an annual visitor of the RC of Sarasota Sunrise, Florida, learned this Club's District 6960, "..reached the $1,000,000.00 plateau for Annual Fund Giving for the Rotary year July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020." By comparison District 5550 was a little short of reaching $128,000.00;
  • Looking forward to seeing you all next week - have a great week and stay safe.
