The Gateway - Rotary Club of Gravenhurst

As we begin to emerge from the pandemic as a Rotary Club we are excited to share that we are 85 years young this year!   To help celebrate this milestone one of our most Senior Rotarians Norm Rippon embarked on assembling a committee to determine a great project worthy of this occasion.     After considering many different ideas the committee came up with the idea of Amphitheatre seating at the Gull Lake Rotary Park in front of the iconic Barge.   Originally opened in 1959 by the Queen we feel this is an outstanding project and will have a tremendous impact on both the park and the town.   Our goal is to improve the usage of the Barge, make it safer to access, and provide a wonderful aesthetic to the Barge too.    We presented to the Town Council and they are very excited about the project and we will be getting a website created and a fundraising campaign will be beginning soon too.   Stay tuned for more info on Rotary Rocks the Barge !
