Rotary helping the community and the world

Princeton Rotary is looking for your help to end Polio

Rotary president Judy Short stands with the Tim Hall print (Humpback Rock) that is on display in Cooper’s Foods. The print is the second place prize in the contest that Princeton Rotary and Cooper’s Foods have joined forces in to raise money to fight polio. 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.

Rotary, with the help of Cooper’s Foods is raising money to fight polio all around the world. 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.) As a second prize there is a wonderful framed picture of Humpback Rock. This is done by renowned artist Tim Hall who lives right here in our community. Draw will take place Oct. 31.

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.

We would be very grateful if the community members, users would like to help to complete this project. Cheques can be given to members stated on the thermometer chart on display at Cooper’s.

For tax receipts please make cheques out to R.D.O.S. (Rotary Kitchen)—Thank You.

This is all done by a membership of 13. If you are interested in becoming a Rotary Member please feel free to come to our lunch meetings at the Heartland Restaurant Tuesdays at noon.
