    Acting President Pat Dell called on Peter Peters to introduce our Guest speaker Dr. Roger A. Petry.
    Dr. Petry is a Professor of Philosophy at Luther College at the U of R. He is a Rhodes Scholar and has obtained degrees in philosophy and mathematics from the University of Regina; philosophy, politics, and economics (PPE) and philosophical theology from the University of Oxford; and, an interdisciplinary Ph.D. awarded in 2008 through the Canadian Plains Studies Program at the University of Regina. His doctoral thesis contrasts university innovation for sustainable development in relation to commercialization and open source licensing strategies. He is co-coordinator of the Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in Saskatchewan and is one of 174 RCEs recognized globally by the United Nations University, to help advance the U.N. Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) (2005-2014).  He is on the UNESCO Global Action Programme on ESD, and the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (2015-2030). He was appointed Regional Advisor for RCEs in the Americas by the UNU starting in 2020. He is the institutional lead on "Responsible Consumption and Production" for the International Association of Universities Thematic Cluster on Higher Education for Sustainable Development in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goal #12. Roger Petry grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and is married with two children.
The title of his advertised presentation was, "The Role of Service Clubs in Moving to Sustainability".
   In the power point slides Roger used, he introduced attendees to the World Commission on Environment and Development definition of Sustainable Development. In the 1987 Report on Our Common Future, it was defined as, "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." He also shared the 1991 Report, Caring for the Earth, Sustainable Development definitions as, "improving the quality of life while living within the carrying capacity of supporting ecosystems." Less sophisticated definitions which Roger advanced helped make sense of the matter were, "Living on the planet as if we intended to stay", and "Enough, For All, Forever".
    Having identified Service Clubs and Fraternal Societies as key components along with Universities in addressing and successfully achieving Sustainable Development he recited for us Rotary's Vision, "Together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change  - across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves."

I am going to click the above link and watch Roger's presentation again - and this time really listen and watch. Roger Petry reminded us that this is exactly what we Rotarians do, be it with Mental Health, Chili for Children, Adventure in Agriculture , Exchange Students - hosting and sponsoring, working with Rotary Clubs in Guatemala, raising money through our agreement with SARCAN. Changing the world one action at a time.
    "Enough, For All, Forever!"
Thank you, Roger Petry.
You made this a great Rotary Day.

10 ways to be a peacebuilder in 2021
Resolve to be a peacebuilder in 2021. Peace underscores much of the work that Rotary members do in improving communities around the world. Rotary’s peacebuilding initiatives seek to create environments where lasting peace is possible. We do that by investing in sustainable and measurable peace programs across the globe, creating an extensive network of peacebuilders dedicated to peace and conflict prevention; and giving members’ opportunities to participate in peacebuilding. How will you build peace in 2021? Here are 10 ideas.
  • In the absence of President Jean-Marc, President Elect Pat Dell was in charge of the meeting, guided by V.P. Jeff Barber, the Host and Technical Guru;
  • Putting on her Sergeant hat, Pat was in a forgiving mood and "pardoned" attendees not wearing their Rotary pin, but only if they at least visited the Club's Website, purchased 50/50 tickets, visited the Silent Auction Items and hopefully bid on 1, 2, or all, the offerings;
  • Fund-Raiser Pick-up day - On Saturday, February 6th, Jack Wozniak, John Van Koll, Jean-Marc Nadeau and Pat Dell will be travelling around picking up bottles and cans to be delivered to SARCAN;
  • Call Pat to arrange for the pick-up from your home - if you set out your donation, you won't even have to speak to the "pick up person" - what a good deal;
  • Requirements: i) no call, no pick up; ii) bottle caps off; iii) bottles MUST BE CLEAN.
