When YOU support our fundraisers YOU support OUR COMMUNITY!
The Rotary Club of Wiarton contributed to the Salvation Army Christmas hampers with the donation of Christmas hams. Rotarian Kathy Christie is pictured delivering the hams.
Rotarian Glenn Beacock stands with some of the fresh fruits that will be available to students at Peninsula Shores District School through the Rotary Club's recent donation to the school Breakfast program.
Christi Ronholm, Bruce Peninsula Association for Community Living, accepts a donation from Kathy Christie of the Rotary Club of Wiarton. This donation assists a Mental Health and Wellness program for those in Supported Independent Living. Ms Ronholm stated that, “In these pandemic times it is important to ensure that those living alone remain connected to others and live the best lives possible."
Rotarian Ashley Gunn recently presented a cheque to Heather Sheldrick, Executive Director of The Women’s Centre Grey Bruce Inc. Women and children fleeing abuse need our support more than ever. We are so thankful to our community members who have attended Online Trivia Nights and bought tickets for Wine Survivor. Your support is allowing us to continue to support others in our community.
The Rotary Club of Wiarton supports Bruce Peninsula Hospice. Recently Rotarian Jackie Drawbell presented a cheque to Nancy Forgrave, Manager Volunteer Services, Bruce Peninsula Hospice and a Friend of Wiarton Rotary. These funds will support the organization of a Virtual Bereavement Support Group, via Zoom, for people in the community who are grieving. Bruce Peninsula Hospice continues to support people in the community, virtually, by phone and with outdoor visits.
As we adjust to our ever changing COVID world we are also adjusting how we meet and how we do business. We are able to meet in-person, following socially distanced guidelines and we are also meeting online using ZOOM. Working together, we are making plans for the coming year. New fundraisers and more hands on projects are in the works! Did you miss out on our first Wine Survivor? Stay tuned!!!
We are people of action! Together, as a club, as a community, as a country, as a global network we will do more than survive. We will thrive!
We are seeing that COVID is indeed opening opportunities for us. Opportunities to meet with fellow Rotarians from around the world. Opportunities to get more involved with hands on projects in our local community. Opportunities to work more closely with younger members of our community - they have been instrumental in assisting us with developing some online fundraisers! Opportunities to be creative.
Above all we have an opportunity to slow down a little and spend a little more time just saying "Hello. How are you?" We hope that all of our friends and supporters are well. Together we can do this!!
Please note that we are not able to issue a charitable donation receipt. However, be assured that your donation will do good in our local and/or global community.
