RO­TARY IN YOUR COM­MU­NITY

The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS -

It’s all in­clu­sive. Club mem­bers, the busi­ness com­mu­nity and the gen­eral public com­bine to raise funds for com­mu­nity projects through the bi-an­nual Ro­tary Ra­dio Auc­tion Oc­to­ber 11 and 12 at the Green­tree Mall. Mem­bers are cur­rently vis­it­ing busi­nesses for ar­ti­cles to auc­tion off to the high­est bid­der. This is a good ad­ver­tis­ing op­por­tu­nity. And Hi-Way 9 Ex­press in­vites all to come down for wine and cheese while bid­ding on the items. For those at home, or trav­el­ling, tune into CFCW, keep up with the bid­ding and then call in to be­come the high­est bid­der on any item. Ro­tary thanks Hi-Way 9, Sun Life and River­side Value Drug Mart for spon­sor­ing the ra­dio broad­cast.

Ro­tar­i­ans just fin­ished a work project to as­sist the At­las Coal Mine in the in­stal­la­tion of In­for­ma­tion Cen­tres. Now, club mem­bers will vol­un­teer to help Ig­nite Your Spark Septem­ber 27. Eight Hun­dred stu­dents from the Val­ley, Stan­dard, Car­bon, Mor­rin and Delia schools will at­tend. This event is also spon­sored by Ro­tary. Club mem­bers will also be out to as­sist in the Half Marathon.

We thank ev­ery­one for sup­port­ing the Big Ball Bounce held ear­lier this month. We hope for the same out­stand­ing sup- News from the Ro­tary Club of Drumheller port of another new Ro­tary fund-rais­ing project – the Grey Cup Pool. Chair Linda Fisher re­ports tick­ets will be sell­ing for just $2 each.

The club has just com­pleted a one year youth ex­change, pro­gram and on Mon­day, de­cided to pro­ceed with a sim­i­lar ex­change start­ing in the summer of 2018. So, lo­cal area stu­dents wish­ing to go some­where in the world for one year, more in­for­ma­tion will be avail­able in the months to come.. As part of the pro­gram, the lo­cal club will host a stu­dent from some­where in the world. Con­grat­u­la­tions are in or­der for club mem­ber Tracy Kakuk on her ap­point­ment as District 5360 Youth Co­or­di­na­tor for the long term stu­dent ex­change pro­gram. The District ex­tends from Red Deer to the U.S. bor­der and into west­ern Saskatchewan.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Bev Krab­sen in re­ceiv­ing the Paul Har­ris award, the high­est club hon­our.

We wel­come our new­est mem­ber Linda Fisher.
