Rotarian Gudrun Malmqvist, Thomas Briginshaw, Executive Director Innovation Centre, Michael Gravells and Rotarian Patti Thurston 
 
Thomas Briginshaw, Executive Director of the Innovation Centre on Shuswap St., Salmon Arm, spoke to the club about their programs.  Michael Gravells, a youth who has been working in the technology area in the basement, talked about what he has been doing with the 3D printer.  They have several courses, a rooftop garden with yoga classes and office space for 19 offices.  They are hoping for a donation from our club, and have plans to become self-sustaining.

Despite the early morning wake-up call, the Mad Hatters, Shuswap Rotary team at the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Sociey (LASS) ate a great breakfast and had a hilarious time spelling on Wednesday,  May 8.  The 8 team members are shown, from the left:  Sherry Gilroy, MJ Berezan, Barb Hay, Kathy Dunfield, Sue Ackerman, Bev Wice, Pam Wenzel and Lynne Gulliford.  Shuswap Rotary contributed $600 to the registration and the team members contributed over $400.  The event raised over $11,000 for literacy activities in the Shuswap, from Books for Babies to Cyber Seniors Computer Tutoring and many other programs. 
A huge thank you to everyone that turned out for the Haney Clean-up. It was a smashing success. We had lots of help from the scouts and cadets, just amazing. The army Rangers sent 30,the air cadets 10 and the scout 10. All told, there was 145 registered volunteers. Three cheers for Panago Pizza, Shuswap Rotary and Steve Genn who arranged for the pizza, wings and salad. Steve ordered for 90 but it was a generous 90 and all were fed. Susan at Haney said that the clean-up exceeded her expectations. She was thrilled. Thank you Sherry for organizing the cadets & scouts.
 
A job well done everyone.  For more photos, click Read More.

Shuswap Rotary sponsored an Aid Station at the Loppet on Saturday, January 19, 2019.  Approximately 460 - 500 people skied.  We had a full complement of volunteers at our station.  It was a beautiful day sunny and temperatures were pleasant.
Brain Bikes are child-sized exercise bikes.  Very sturdy and amazingly quiet, they are used in classrooms, and managed by teachers so they are not a disruption.  Their purpose is to give children a short brain break with exercise.  This helps students develop the habit of using exercise as a means of self-regulation, an essential life skill.  
 
Three Rotarians are shown with students from Ranchero Elementary who are demonstrating how brain bikes are used.  Rotarians are Dave Woolliams, Fred Good man and John Hansen (left to right)  Brain bikes are used by students for short exercise intervals that are improve learning and self-regulation.   ALSO - see the Brain Bikes Photo Album in the right column of this webpage. 
 
 
Our new exchange student, Guillermo Hernandez arrived safely Thursday night (August 23) from Alicanté, Spain. He is a charming boy and it’s been a pleasure getting to know him. 15 years old with a birthday on Dec 28th. He will be attending SASS in grade 11. His English is fairly good and he likes to eat anything. He plays the drums & piano. He rows back at home and likes soccer & basketball. 
At Barani Primary School in Kenya 24 girls, aged 7 to 9, have been singing and dancing their way through various levels of school music festival competitions and winning each to reach the National finals in August 2018.  As part of their school music program they learn to perform tribal based songs which include dancing and acting out traditional stories. These girls, who have never travelled farther than they can walk from their simple mud homes near the city of Mombasa, now find themselves travelling 700 km with 2 teachers to compete in the country’s top educational music festival. 

In a country where most families and schools do not have funds to pay for travel and costumes, these girls received financial assistance from generous individual Rotarians and Friends of Rotary which made going to Regional finals and National finals possible.  These young girls, through their winning performances, are gaining confidence, self respect and self esteem which are foundations for future leaders in Kenya, one of the aims of Shuswap Rotary through its Kenyan projects.
Shuswap Rotary provides 550 lunches daily for needy students at Barani Primary School.  It also sponsors 20 students to complete Grades 9 to 12 in a country where there is no government funding of secondary schools.
