What a happy looking group! And why not? A partnership with the Windsor Rotary Community Toonie 50/50 plus a top-up from Windsor Rotary has earned the Newport and District Rink a cheque for $5,000.

The incredible snow and ice storms in 2015 led to the collapse of the Newport and District Rink building, a facility which had been a hub of community recreation since 1973. We were excited to have the Rink as our Community Partner at the Rotary Community Gala and to contribute to the construction of the new building in 2016. This week's cheque will bring the group closer to completing some of the final details.

This is just one example of how Windsor Rotary supports active, healthy families in our community...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/
