Children and Youth in Ladner and Delta are the cause of proceeds from the sale of 2018 Rotary calendars and lottery. Rotarians are once again selling the calendars throughout South Delta with 100% of proceeds going to community service projects.
Rotarians Walt Hayward and Elena Murgoci, at Save On Foods in Ladner on September 30, were one of the teams which started selling calendars in South Delta this Fall

The difference this year is that the Rotary calendar and lottery 2018 showcases the community of Delta, but in paintings by local artists who are members of the South Delta Artists Guild. The Delta Camera Club has supported the calendar project with excellent photos in past years. This interesting change features our farms, and the community which has grown up around them as well as our commerce, industry and people.
The calendar is also a lottery, governed by the BC Gaming Commission, with a relatively high possibility of winning cash prizes ranging from $100 to $1,000 in weekly draws throughout the coming year.
For children, in the past two years, calendar sales have supported the new Ladner Rotary Splash Park to be completed by May 2018 in time for the summer season.
Calendar sales proceeds have also supported the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) -- a program of Rotary clubs around the world -- which gives young adults in the South Delta community an opportunity to participate in a four day, leadership camp to network and learn with others.
The 60 companies or individuals who have sponsored the calendar production and $10,000 in lottery prizes, appear throughout the calendar. Their contribution enables Rotary to devote 100% of calendar sales proceeds to charitable causes each year.
