  • Today, in response to the COVID 19 Pandemic, and for the foreseeable weeks, Regina Eastview will meet via ZOOM;
  • Guest Speakers have been arranged for the month of April, however, if you have Provincial, National or International persons in mind who have a story we should hear, please contact Jenna and share your suggestion - you would get extra praise if you have the person's contact information;
  • Shreedhar Jachak advised Rotary Friendship Exchanges for 2020-2021 have been postponed.


After cancelling Regina Eastview meetings for two consecutive weeks in response to COVID 19 isolation requirements, ZOOM technology opened the door to meet virtually without leaving our respective homes. This "new world" meeting format kick-started in fine fashion by having District Governor (DG) Fred Wright in attendance from Kenora, Ontario, who shared his Rotary Club's "transformational" work to address "Child Poverty" in Kenora and area. This project is about addressing child poverty in the community. Realizing some children go to school hungry, because of home circomstances, and are "rescued" there by breakfast and lunch programs, but what about weekends? The Community rallied to address weekend nourishmnet for these children.

One of the great things about our ZOOM meeting was it was taped and you have the opportunity of refreshing your memory with the details of DG Fred's comments. Additionally, if you missed the meeting you can watch (or re-watch) it on your computer or related "devise".
Members of the RC of Kenora
The Kenora community has been mobilized and a rotating group of teams gather each week to prepare for the distribution of some 280 bags of groceries to needy families.
Thank you, DG Fred, for sharing what it means to "make a difference".
  • We extend our condolences to Doreen and Albert Pankewich on the passing of Doreen's Mother on Monday, March 30th. Please keep Doreen and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
  • Honorary Eastview Rotarian, Richard Downing, is in the Pasqua Hospital and because of COVID 19 cannot be visited. However, he might appreciate a phone call - if you would like to do this please call his wife Jean at 306-545-9498 to ensure Richard is up to receiving phone calls. Richard, we wish you an early return home. 
Back in the Day when the 2-mtre rule did not apply
  • It was a great day at Regina Eastview as a total of 39 members and visitors were on "the call" - family members were seen;
  • On members who were in forced isolation because they returned to Canada from a foreign land, Sargent Pat, levied a fine of $5.00;
  • For those who self-isolated, the fine was a mere $3.00;
  • Doug Mortin was happy because he is self-isolated with someone he loves - there was additional commentary but the “sound” was bad;
  • Gail Bradley was happy to see Joyce Butler;
  • And Joyce Butler was delighted to be back on land having returned from their cruise the beginning of March;
  • Barry Strohan advised they have socialized more in last 3 weeks with their friends using technology than before the pandemic;
  • Fine payments can be directed to Shannon Windrim;
  • Many expressed their appreciation to Jack, Jenna, Kevin and Jean-Mark for their leadership in making today’s meeting happen;
  • Hope to see you all next week - in the meantime, stay safe and keep well.

Philosopher's Corner

"It captures our apparent powerlessness in this most unnerving of moments:
For all of us who don’t know
We can read what we want to read
Believe what we want to believe
Hope what we want to hope
Say what we want to say
Eloquently, beautifully, compellingly, persuasively
Presidents, prime ministers, dictators
We can blog, tweet, post, proclaim
Reach thousands, millions
We can want what we want
Do what we want
COVID-19 is not impressed."
                                Ken Dryden

Today's guests

DG Fred Wright, RC of Kenora; Bob Durston, RC of Neepawa; Lorna King, Regina Oskaya; AG Carole Bryant and Allen Goudie, RC of Regina; and, a man identified as "Greg".
