On May12th, Anne Brubacher Chair of Local Allocations led a presentation of the Local Allocations committee members on the various schools supported by our club this year. The committee worked hard to allocate funds in accordance with our belief statement and had difficult decisions with 32 total applications for significantly more than our budget. Hopefully we can continue to make a big splash in some small ponds. Unfortunately with the current situation we are forced to have our annual celebration in a somewhat different form but all the recipients have been notified and the cheques have been sent.
On March 2nd, the Skate48 committee welcomed the top 50 fundraisers to a celebration at St. Louis Bar and Grill in Waterloo. The event was to celebrate the success of the 29th Skate48 held in February which raised $173,000 for the club to donate back to worthy causes primarily within our community.
