The goal of the Rotary-Bethany partnership is to build a foundation for enduring success in senior's health through a community-based, campus of care approach that can become the standard for future development of care centre communities.  Rotary has partnered with Bethany to fill a gap in Calgary's senior and dementia care facilities to create The Atrium .  The Atrium, a year-round indoor green space, will provide an area for Bethany residents, family, staff, volunteers, community visitors and Rotarians to gather and engage with each other. The Atrium will be one of the main features at Bethany Riverview, located in the heart of Calgary’s newest dementia care facility. Learn more about the project at this week's meeting or check out their website at ouratrium.com/theconcept/

By now most people are participating in some type of travel reward program.  Kevin Crowe, founder of Give a Mile, will be speaking about how this not for profit organization provides individuals in need of visiting a loved one with an advanced/terminal/life threatening illness but cannot afford the travel cost a way to visit through crowdfunding of flights via micro-donations of travel points.  Please join us on Wednesday to learn a new way to help others benefit from those travel rewards and make a difference in someone's life.
