August was a month of travel to many of our clubs. The first week was spent with clubs in Winnipeg: St. Boniface-St. Vital, Winnipeg East A. M., Rotary Club of Winnipeg, Winnipeg - Transcona, Winnipeg - Assiniboine and a trip to the Basic RYLA camp. 
After that we went to North East Saskatchewan to Visit Prince Albert Rotary, Melfort Rotary, Rotary Club of Nipawin, Rotary Club of Hudson Bay and the Senior RYLA camp. At Nipawin, Immediate Past District Governor Pat held a World’s Greatest Meal to End Polio. A number of members from the Nipawin club enjoyed a social evening with dessert and fruit punch. Donations were accepted toward Polio Plus, raising over $500.00 to the cause.
The following week we visited the Rotary Clubs of Brandon, and Brandon - Sunset with their Rotaractors and finished the trip with a visit to the Rotary Club of Neepawa.
The month was rounded out with visits to the Rotary Clubs of Yorkton, Dauphin, Swan Valley, and Minnedosa.
We have been impressed with the scope and magnitude of the service projects of the clubs visited so far in our district. Our clubs are becoming more willing to vary their meeting styles to accommodate their membership, improve retention and lower the average age of their members. Several more new members were inducted and we are starting to regain some of our losses that occurred at the beginning of the Rotary Year.
