A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who donated items for our food drive to help make this a holiday season for all to enjoy. Our Charles Dickens-themed float in the Santa Claus Parade quickly filled up with donations from parade route spectators, as we passed out treats for the children. Despite the chilly weather, the parade was a success and, as an added bonus for our club, our float placed second!
Rotarians have been out in the community selling the popular 2018 Cash Calendar, which are available for $20 each. A portion of each sale goes towards Rotary support of, and participation in, local programs. Draws are held on every day of the year, with winning amounts ranging from $20 to $1,000. You, too, could be a lucky winner – multiple times! Recently, Marla and Stewart of Kemptville won $1,000 and were congratulated at a Rotary meeting.
Kemptville Rotary is on an all-out drive to strengthen the club and recruit new members. A new brochure inviting you to “Be a part of it!” has been printed and can be found on display stands at local venues, as well as from individual members. Rotary is open to men and women of all ages, and is a wonderful way to make new friends and to be positive force in your community.
