The first place prize is four tickest to the BC - Sasktchewan football game on Nov. 3. Exchange 1000 points from your Save-On- More card for the opportunity to win one of these terrific prizes and at the same time help to fight polio.

Exchange 1000 points from your Save-On-More card to receive an opportunity to win 4 tickets to the BC – Saskatchewan game November 3. (Winners drawn Oct. 23.)

The Community Kitchen, at Riverside Centre needs our support to complete and get up and running. Rotary has purchased engineering, fire wall, fridge, stove and stove hood at this time. We have been granted money from Weyerhaeuser, The Town of Princeton, Rotary District Fund and  the  Community Foundation of the South Okanagan. There are also, outstanding grants we look forward to receiving.
