We’ve had a great six months

Since July 1st last year we’ve completed two major fundraisers and a number of community and international projects. Last September we held our 9th Million Dollar Hole-in-One contest, which in spite of torrential rain and high winds was a great success, raising over $25,000.

More recently, we sold all 400 tickets for our annual Trip-of-the-Month Club fundraiser. Winners will be drawn each month for great trip packages from Getaway Travel.

During the summer we spruced up the Rotary Bandshell in Elgin Park and constructed a lookout deck on the shore of Elgin Pond.

We held Sunday evening concerts in the park from summer until Labour Day, featuring groups such as Heavy Metal and Tanner Potter.

In October, we held a Thanksgiving Dinner for 200 seniors at the United Church Hall.
