Stories
The Charleswood Rotary Club recently completed a project to provide garden boxes at Westgrove School.  The boxes allow students to learn about where their food comes from.  Principal Troy Calder is raving about the benefits they already see from the gardens. The teachers and students are very excited about what they see as potential for the garden and further development of outdoor education programs. He is hoping in the fall to have parents come when they go to harvest the garden.
The students have in turn thanked the members of the Rotary club with giant cards. The club has done an excellent job in completing this project. It is very obvious the appreciation of school staff about the work completed. The site looks very impressive.
Thank-you!
A big thanks to all of the attendees at this year's annual lobster fest fundraiser for another successful year.

The Rotary Club of Winnipeg-Charleswood continues to support Shelterbox through donations in honour of our guest speakers to our meetings. The Shelterbox organization responds instantly to natural and manmade disasters by delivering boxes of aid to those who are most in need. Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10 people with a tent and essential equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless.

The community members of Pierre Ambeau in the Pont Sondé region of the Artibonite Valley in Haiti now have access to safe water thanks to the support of the Rotary Club of Winnipeg-Charleswood. The club provided the $5000 of funding required for one well which was part of a larger project in the region described here by Julie Truelove, Program Manager at Ryan's Well, who along with the Rotary Club of Ancaster were our partners in this project.

 

The Westgrove summer CSI literacy camp is working to eliminate summer learning loss with at-risk students. The Charleswood Rotary Club has sponsored this camp since it started in 2004.
