Katan­ning Coun­try Club was bustling with 90 pa­trons tak­ing part in the Katan­ning Po­lice and Ro­tary Golf Day.

On Satur­day, Novem­ber 4, the lo­cal po­lice and Ro­tary club held a fun-filled day of golf and so­cial­is­ing, to raise money for lo­cal com­mu­nity projects and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

A to­tal of $3972 was raised and Ro­tary Club of Katan­ning pres­i­dent Keith Ohlsen said it was a great ex­am­ple of com­mu­nity fundrais­ing.

“There was lots of fun had by the com­mu­nity — it was a great fundrais­ing ef­fort for com­mu­nity projects that wouldn’t get this sort of money with­out these sorts of things,” he said.

Half of the money raised will go to­wards Katan­ning’s three pri­mary schools, while the other half will go to­wards an out­door bar­be­cue area at Bethshan Lodge.

Katan­ning po­lice Con­sta­ble Cameron John­son said it was a good op­por­tu­nity for the po­lice to get in­volved with the com­mu­nity.

“It’s good for us be­cause we don’t get to spend time with the lo­cals, and if we do it’s usu­ally un­der un­for­tu­nate cir­cum­stances so it’s great that the po­lice can come out and be a part of the com­mu­nity,” he said.

Ro­tary Club of Katan­ning com­mu­nity di­rec­tor John Pepall thanked the po­lice and said it was a suc­cess­ful day en­joyed by the whole com­mu­nity.
