The Rotary Club float

by Anna Van Adrichem Rochon

We will not be having a Holiday parade in our community and so many other events that we all look forward to throughout the year have been cancelled, however, The Rotary Club of Kemptville has checked with the Leeds and Grenville Health Unit and have been given the go ahead to extend a festive hello to our community. Last weekend, on November 20 and 21, we visited Oxford Mills, downtown Kemptville, eQuinelle, Tempo, and Victoria Park. We received donations, financial contributions, and many greetings. All donations are to local food banks and will be picked up from the end of the driveway.

It was wonderful to see the many decorations already in place. We will continue again this coming weekend, November 28 and 29. There will be a truck and decorated wagon passing through various areas of North Grenville from 5 pm. to 7 pm. If you would like to make a monetary or food donation to area food banks, the Rotarians will be happy to pick it up from the end of your drive way.

November 28, during the hours of 5 -7 pm.: Kettle Creek, Rideau Estates, Forests of South Gower, and Jayland Drive.

November 29: Settlers’ Grant, Oxford Landing, Colonel By Keys, via Muldoon Rd to Meadowglen Circle, and Stonehaven Estates.

Should you not be on one of our routes and would like to donate, please send an email via:, and we will arrange pick up.

The local Rotarians look forward to wishing you “Season’s Greetings”.
