Marsuk Friesen presenting a $400.00 cheque from cut flower sales from her amazing garden to the Rotary Club of Summerland's Past President, Linda Van Alphen. Marsuk has raised close to $1,200 through her fundraising efforts in the past three months. Marsuk is pleased that all sales proceeds will be used exclusively for local Rotary Club of Summerland projects.
 
This year, the SSS leadership class partnered with the Summerland Rotary Club to refresh our school’s courtyard. The courtyard is located in the center of the school and is an ideal place for students to do homework or have lunch but can also double as an outdoor classroom. Due to lack of seating, the courtyard has not been used to its full potential in recent years. The funding provided by the Summerland Rotary Club allowed for the purchase of several tables and chairs which students starting using as soon as they arrived and were a welcomed addition.  The plan going forward is to add a student painted mural, indigenous plantings that attract pollinators and require little water as well as more seating and shaded areas to complete the space and make for a welcoming environment. We are extremely grateful to the Summerland Rotary Club for partnering with us and making this dream a reality.
 
 
 
Congratulations to our most recent 50/50 winner, Jaclyn Cousins!
 
President Elect, Bob Van Balkom, was pleased to present Jaclyn a cheque for $2,020 - half of the proceeds raised for our May 31st draw.
The other half of the proceeds will be used to assist with our Bursary donations, as well as support other projects within the Summerland School system.
Thank you to everyone who supported our Big 50/50 Draw!
 
In recent days, homes in Ukraine have been damaged or destroyed. Innocent civilians are being killed, families and lives are being torn apart. The UN is reporting hundreds of thousands of people on the move inside the country or trying to leave. They are predicting as many as 12 million people may need humanitarian assistance inside Ukraine.
 
Additionally, the UN predicts that as many as 4 million refugees may be seen as a result of this crisis. More than 874,000 people are reported to have already fled Ukraine to neighboring countries [as of Tuesday 1 March 2022].
 
ShelterBox is responding to the Ukraine crisis. A team is on their way. We will be sending aid and are working to understand who is doing what so we can avoid duplication and get as many people as possible the support they need.
 
We are liaising with Rotary and Rotaract leadership and members in the region to coordinate information and better understand the situation. We have connected with District 2231 in Poland and with the wider regional coordination framework under RI Director Katarina Kotsalis.
 
As official Project Partners in international disaster relief, Rotary and ShelterBox work together to ensure no one is left without shelter after disaster. Donating to ShelterBox is the best way you can take immediate action to help families affected by disasters around the world. 
 
PLEASE DONATE TODAY TO PROVIDE LIFE-SAVING AID TO FAMILIES AFFECTED BY THE CRISIS IN UKRAINE

Eighth-grader Rosa is no stranger to hard work. She regularly helps her mother in the fields and tends to the family’s own crops and livestock.

At the end of elementary school, she was on the all-too-common edge of dropping out, as the cost of going to school increased. She’d already come three years further than her mother, Leoncia, who only finished third grade. But thanks to the Thousand Girls Initiative, Rosa was selected to enter our Rise Youth Development Program.

Her journey has been so inspiring that she was even recently featured by a superhero! (OK... a superhero actor.)
