Ro­tary Club con­tin­ues busy agenda in Au­gust

The Big Ball Bounce, a se­nior’s Bar­be­cue, plan­ning for the pop­u­lar Ra­dio Auc­tion, start of Grey Cup ticket sales. These are just some of the cur­rent Ro­tary ac­tiv­i­ties and their fundrais­ing ef­forts to sup­port youth, fam­i­lies and se­niors in the com­mu­nity and area.

On Satur­day, Au­gust 10, some­one will walk away with $5,000 when 2,000 lacrosse balls roll down the street in front of River­side Value Drug Mart. The balls will be rolling at 2 o’clock. The ball clos­est to the tar­get will mean its owner wins the cash. A lim­ited num­ber of tick­ets are avail­able. Call 403-823-4944 or con­tact a club mem­ber.

Fol­low­ing this fund-raiser, club mem­bers pick up the tools and cook for the Con­tin­u­ing Care bar­be­cue on Au­gust 27. This event was started a year ago and mem­bers hope they’ll be able to help out for years to come.

This month the club is com­menc­ing plans for the ra­dio auc­tion. Thanks to par­tic­i­pa­tion by busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als, items are auc­tioned on-air. And, later this month, mem­bers ex­pect to have Grey Cup tick­ets back. For just $2, you re­ceive a score for the cham­pi­onship game Novem­ber 24.

In 2024 Ro­tary will cel­e­brate 100 years of ser­vice to Drumheller and area. The club is em­bark­ing on a ma­jor project to mark the oc­ca­sion, and in the mean­time, will con­tinue its sup­port of projects that ben­e­fit youth, fam­i­lies and se­niors.
