Mark down this number: 403-823-4183. You now have the connection to get in on the fun and excitement bidding at the 2017 Rotary Radio Auction, October 11 and 12 on CFCW. If you can attend either evening from 6-10 p.m., join us for wine and cheese, courtesy Hi-Way 9 Group of Companies.
Also, you’re invited to pre-bid from noon – 4 pm on Tuesday (September 10) – and the following Wednesday and Thursday. Just come on in to the Drumheller Coop to place your bids.
What’s going to be up for auction? You name it. There will be anything from great sports memorabilia (autographed game worn Calgary Flames jerseys) – deluxe pool cue set, televisions – clothing – watches, agriculture products including bale hauling – and, yes, your opportunity to select the top turkey: the Eskimo turkey – the Stampeders turkey or the Riders turkey. These Butterball turkeys are all part of the sale. And, remember, the more you bid on your favourite team turkey, the more Rotary can help the community.
Following a presentation by Shauna Watson and Diana Rowe, the club will come forth with sponsorship for the upcoming year for the Indoor Family Free Play activities.
Today, Rotarians are assisting with Drumheller’s first Sparks Fair which brings in students from the Standard, Rockyford, Hussar, Carbon, Morrin, Rumsey and Delia areas, in addition to those from the valley.
Tickets are selling fast for the Rotary Grey Cup scores. They’re just $2. There’s a chance to win money on every quarter with the final score paying up to $600. Tell a club member you want some tickets. A tip: Ken Briault at Allied Distributors - Paul Ainscough at Riverside Drug Mart or Shirley at SJ Fashions just happen to have some in the palm of their hands.
We welcome our newest member Tania Johnson.
