Rotary Club of Kemptville will be spreading the Holiday Spirit


by Anna Van Adrichem Rochon

Most, if not all, of the clubs in our Municipality are no longer meeting in person. 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. The plans have been made and precautions put in place.

During the time from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the selected days, there will be a truck and decorated wagon passing through various areas of North Grenville. 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 driveway.

The schedule on November 21, between 5 and 7 p.m. is: Oxford Mills, from Maplewood Hall to Oxford-on-the Rideau Public School, Dennison Rd to Oxford Heights, and most streets in the town of Kemptville.

The schedule on November 22, between 5 and 7 p.m. is: All Victoria Park, Forrest Creek, Tempo, and eQuinelle most streets.

November 28, between 5 and 7 p.m. is: 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 to: and we will arrange pick up.

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