Thrilled to bring you another wonderful event, the Rotarians of Kamloops Aurora Centennial invite you to an Indian Feast, enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. By popular demand, Nandi Spolia will prepare his famous Indian food and have it ready for pick up, paired with a bottle of wine. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go to support the creation of a mental health space and patient room at the new tower in Royal Inland Hospital here in Kamloops.

We are very grateful to the sponsors of the Take Home Indian Feast! We are so grateful for your support!  All proceeds from this fundraiser will go to support the creation of a mental health space and patient room at the new tower in Royal Inland Hospital (RIH) here in Kamloops.
Today Rotarians came together to provide a hot meal to members of our community. The objective of the PIT Stop is very dear to our hearts. We thank the PIT Stop coordinator Rick for letting us be part of this. We had a great time!

The Rotary Foundation Mission is, “To enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.” When we contribute, we pool our resources allowing us to fund initiatives with other Rotary partners throughout the world – initiatives that are sustainable, transparent, and accountable, initiatives that make a difference in one of six Areas of Focus identified by Rotary International.
We would like to thank everyone who participated in the Kamloops Rotary Food Drive and helped to make this year's food drive happen. We are amazed by the strength and compassion of this community. Your support means so much to our community.
 
Couldn't participate? This year Kamloops Food Bank is also introducing new feature - 'text to donate'. You can now text FOODBANK to 45678 to donate $10 or $25 to the Kamloops Food Bank.
 
 
Some members of our club participated in Spelling Bee, an organization that uses the funds to run community literacy programs such as Mother Goose, the Bright Red Book Bus and one-to-one tutoring for children and adults. The donations collected go toward Literacy in Kamloops and are then matched by the provincial government.

For more information on the spelling bee and on Literacy in Kamloops, go online to literacyinkamloops.weebly.com.

This year there is also an opportunity to participate in the virtual trivia night that will take place on Sept. 22 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Teams of two to six players can enter online at decoda.ca. To play, each of a team's players must choose a community and make a donation. They will then receive an email with a Zoom video conference link and password.

Thank you so much to all our guests who attended our club events last weekend. Your generosity will support many community service projects. We also would like to thank band for adding a special tune to beautiful September evenings and for providing delicious food. We are grateful to our amazing host Monte Creek Ranch!
