An AED unit can save a life

Min­utes and even sec­onds count in the event of a heart at­tack. Right now, no such unit ex­ists on the up­per level of the BCF. This is where a lot of ex­er­cise takes place plus a grow­ing num­ber of events in the ban­quet halls. To ad­dress this sit­u­a­tion, Ro­tary will be fund­ing the costs to bring a unit for the top level of the build­ing.

Win­ners in the Ro­tary Grey Cup ticket scores are: Jamie Wor­man – Ster­ling Sch­nei­der – Con­nie Funk – Pam Hart­man and Dick Tren­tham. A to­tal of $1,200 was paid out in prize money. A big thank you to all those who sup­ported this event that sees all prof­its re­turned to the com­mu­nity and area.

In­ter­na­tion­ally, Dis­trict Gov­er­nor Rick Istead told the Drumheller club that in the past year there have been only 15 cases of po­lio in the world. These oc­curred in Pak­istan and Afghanistan. Ro­tary clubs in over 150 coun­tries have spent three bil­lion dol­lars in try­ing to era­di­ate this dis­ease.

More cash con­tri­bu­tions are on the way, or have al­ready been made. $2,500 will be di­rected to as­sist the swim club in pur­chas­ing start­ing blocks.

An­nu­ally, Ro­tary con­trib­utes $2,500 to the Christ­mas Ket­tle Cam­paign.

To you and yours, a very Happy New Year.!
