The Rotary Club of Windsor is supporting five karate students, ages 12 to 14, who have been chosen to represent Team Nova Scotia in national competition. The students, from the Windsor Karate Club, will be part of a 16 member team competing for Nova Scotia at the 2017 Karate Canada National Championships in Quebec. Rotarians presented a cheque for $500 to help with the expenses of the trip.
