The Rotary Club of Windsor recently joined forces with New Boundaries to provide four benches for the outdoor rink at the Falmouth District Elementary School. The rink is built and maintained by volunteers and is used through the day as part of the student physical education program and extensively during evenings and on weekends by the community at large. The school collects used skates for students and families looking to borrow gear. The benches give people a dry place to sit while putting on skates and serve as comfortable gathering places for conversation.

The benches were constructed by Steve Sharp and his team as part of a skills training program at New Boundaries, a non-profit vocational centre for adults with diverse abilities,. "We have had the pleasure of working on other projects with the folks at New Boundaries," says Rotarian Andy Kirk. "We were very happy with the results and I see this as a mutually beneficial relationship."

The photo shows students from Falmouth District Elementary sitting on two of the benches while those from New Boundaries along with Rotarian Larry Armstrong as well as Physical Education teacher Janice Forand and Principal Kim Frank are standing at the back.

This is one of many projects supported by Windsor Rotary...one Toonie at a time. You can help by playing the weekly Windsor Rotary Community Toonie 50/50 draw. Find out more at http://rotarytoonie.com/
