Pat Dell introduced Ashley Stone, Destination and Tourism Regina Director, whose mandate is, to support the tourism industry in Regina, which consists of "providing a memorable and authentic experience for each visitor ". This does not sound like an easy task, and the role was given to someone from Alberta. In this role Ashley "provides leadership and strategic direction, collaborates with key stakeholders and is a driving force behind making Regina a compelling choice for business and leisure travelers". Ashley's positive and cheerful personality and passion for showcasing Regina as a fun and friendly destination, convinced members of Eastview that she is one of Alberta's gifts to this province.
Guest Speaker Ashley Stone
Ashley spoke about Regina being more than a place people drive through, rather it is a "destination" point, and as such it is the trigger that drives our economy. Her "job" is to ensure that each person who comes to our City will get something positive from this experience.
    One of Tourism Regina's foci is that of Entrepreneurship, Food and Agriculture. 2.84 million people visit Regina on an annual basis, and one thing they all have in common, is their need to eat. This is a significant economic boast to the City. We have Mosaic and Evraz Place which has the combined infra structure and capacity to accommodate large conventions, sporting events and concerts, as demonstrated in the past year by the Farm Progress Show, Garth Brooks concert, Canadian Western Agribition and the great 2019 NHL Heritage Classic.
    Regina is the "Home of the RCMP, and is now home to the world’s largest known Tyrannosaurus rex unearthed in 1991 in Saskatchewan’s Frenchman River Valley.  A replica of Scotty was installed at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Regina. 
    Regina is a place to "live" and "learn" and Asley Stone works to make us all proud.

Shannon Orell-Bast and Elizah Orell
    We were blessed today to have in our midst our Club's 1993-1994 Out-Bound Rotary Exchange Student Shannon Orell-Bast and her daughter Elizah. Shannon and her family live in Regina and she and Elizah came so she could express her appreciation for the impact the Exchange had on her life, career, family and all aspects of her being.
    She came to encourage Rotary to keep Youth Exchange as part of our program so that young people could experience this life enriching and "growing up" opportunity (Doug, she spoke highly of you - thought you should know).
