Rotary heads kitchen upgrade initiative

Princeton Rotary has undertaken an enormous project. They have designated themselves as stewards of the fundraising initiative to upgrade the Community Kitchen at Riverside Centre.

“We feel that it encompasses the whole community, and rotary feels good about being the stewards of this project”, said Judy Short on behalf of local Rotarians.

Princeton Rotary has undertaken an enormous project. They have designated themselves as stewards of the fundraising initiative to upgrade the Community Kitchen at Riverside Centre.

It is estimated that this will be a three year project costing upwards of $100,000.

If $40,000., can be raised by the end of this year—Rotary feels that the kitchen will be operable.

$2,000 dollars raised at the Rotary Winefest held earlier this year marked the beginning of this quest and local Rotarians are hopeful the community will join in and make it a reality. As Rotary are unable to issue tax receipts, the RDOS has graciously offered to facilitate this effort in order to help the community. Rotary is most appreciative for this assistance.

Service clubs, societies, groups, businesses and individuals are encouraged to take part. Ways to participate include the support of fundraising efforts or donating to: The Community Kitchen Project c/o Princeton Rotary, Box 1574, Princeton, BC V0X 1W0, or by dropping your donation at The Similkameen Spotlight, 282 Bridge Street. Please make cheques out to: RDOS – Rotary Kitchen Project. Tax receipts will be issued by the RDOS for any donations greater than $20.

Princeton Rotary encourages you to support the Community Kitchen Project and extends their appreciation for doing so.

The next fundraiser will be a Golf Tournament on June 5 at the Princeton Golf Course, proceeds towards the Riverside Kitchen. Contact Ken Blower at 250-295-6629 to sign up.
