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.!
