Club Meetings


THANKS to our club members for bringing a total of 123 lbs of food items as a donation plus a great assortment of new toys for the Santa's Helper project in Leduc. Gert Reynar from the Leduc Food Bank was on hand at the December 8th Leduc club meeting to accept the items.
Many THANKS to Gert and her associates for the good work they do in the community.

There will be NO meeting on December 22nd due to the proximity to Christmas.

The next regular meeting of the Leduc club will be held on Thursday January 12th, 2012 at Smitty's Restaurant, Leduc. Those who want to eat arrive at 7:00pm, or earlier, with the actual meeting to start at 7:30pm. All members are encouraged to attend. Guests and prospective new members are welcome.

Programs - Spelling Bee

Our club is planning to hold a local, oral only, Spelling Bee in April of 2012. This is a new project for our club and four Leduc elementary schools expressed interest to participate with the anticipation of two Grade 5 students from each school. Varying prizes will be awarded to each student in the contest. This is meant to be an enjoyable event for the contestants and other attendees.
Knowing the importance of education, our club is hoping this type of reward/incentive for effort and achievement will spur on the student(s) to higher goals and a promising future.
Specific details of date, time and location will be posted when available. THANKS to the schools.

WELCOME to Callista Rooyakkers and THANKS to Trevor Adair for sponsoring her.

Please note that this is the meeting where members are requested to bring donations of non perishable food items for the Leduc Food Bank and also toys for the Santa's Helper Program in Leduc.
