The Rotary Club of The Pas made some holiday donations to local seniors’ care homes this past week. The club presented $250 cheques to Northern view Lodge, the Rod McGillivary Care Home and to St. Paul’s.
The Rotary Club in The Pas started September 1, 1928, and for over the 90 years since then, Rotary Club members have been giving back to the community through their efforts.
The Rotary Club of The Pas has a very long list of projects and support throughout the community. The desire to fund ongoing projects lead to the construction in 1989 of the Rotary Playground Park located on Cathedral Avenue, is just one of them. That same year the club made a commitment of $20,000 towards the purchase of a new Handi-Van (a van for door-to-door service for people with mobility issues) to be used in the area.
The Rotary Club of The Pas has worked hard since their chartering to help the community through these and other projects. Their work in the years to come will continue to bring positive change and support to their fellow citizens.
