If you’re wondering what Rotarians do…here’s some fantastic examples of the good they do in our community!
The Rotary Club of Barrie Huronia have been busy raising funds through their many fundraisers this past year (Gala, Lobsterfest, Barrie Fall Fishing Festival, Cash Calendar), to ensure we can help many local non-profit organizations improve their programs.
This past month The Rotary Club of Barrie Huronia presented Maryann Arbour of Big Brothers Big Sisters with a $1,000 towards roofing repairs, purchasing the lumber and materials to build a 6’ X 5’ deck with stairs for the rear of the building, and at some point when Arbour has a permit from the city, a wheelchair ramp will be added.
The Rotary club of Barrie Huronia are also presenting Marc Gilenas from Eastview Collegiate with two cheques. One from community service for $1,500.00 and one from Vocational services for $750.00. The total of $2,200.00 will go towards the purchase of sanders and dust collectors for use in their woodworking program. They are introducing the students to cabinet making and need new equipment for the new program. His students will also be building a deck and stairs which will be installed at the school before Mid November.
