Port Elgin Rotary Club hosting annual walk-a-thon
The Port Elgin Rotary Club will host its 14th annual walk-athon on Saturday, May 27.
This year’s walk will be held in the Baie Verte and Port Elgin area, with walkers gathering at the Baie Verte Community Hall at 9:30 a.m. for registration.
Money raised from this year’s walk will be used to support the Rotary in its efforts to send campers to Camp Tidnish and Camp Ta-wa-si.
Members of the Port Elgin Rotary Club appreciate the support local communities have shown by area residents in past years and hope they come out to support them again this year.
Sign-up sheets can be picked up at various locations in the Port Elgin area or from any Rotary member.
There will be a lunch after the walk at the Baie Verte Community Hall. All walkers are reminded to wear comfortable shoes and footwear with the weather in mind.
Participants in a previous Port Elgin Rotary Club walk-a-thon head out from the Baie Verte Community Hall.
Mount Allison University psychology professor Jennifer Tomes has been honoured for her commitment to teaching excellence.
