The island of St. Pierre is a much cleaner place after members of the Rotary Club of St. Pierre & Miquelon picked up more than 550 kgs. of garbage along the roads of that beautiful place! This club knows the value of partnerships and engages frequently with the members of other service clubs to realize their goals for community involvement.
The membership of the Rotary Club of Sydney continues to grow with the recent induction of 4 new members! Congratulations! It was wonderful to learn that the club sponsored Lyndsey Prosper, from the Eskasoni First Nation, to participate in the Adventures in Citizenship trip to Ottawa.
The Rotary Club of New Waterford’s “Number for Life” fundraiser enables them to give back to other community organizations. They have helped a local rink buy an ice resurfacer and donated to the local hospital, schools and the Salvation Army. Thanks for giving back to your community!
Members of The Rotary Club of Sydney Sunrise put a yeoman effort into making the Sydney Ribfest a huge success! Working with the other clubs in the area, proceeds from this function go to support many different community groups. In memory of PDG David Muise, the club partnered with other groups to construct a fieldhouse in his memory.
The members of The Rotary Club of North Sydney are actively participating in a community environmental project that will see the development of the Smelt Brook Park. Using the proceeds from their Pay 2 Play Lotto, they put 80% of the monies back into the local community and use 20% for international projects.
