Mark the date!  September 26, 2020 Another THANK YOU bottle drive!
Once again, we will be at Evergreen Centre collecting bottle and cans on SEPTEMBER 26 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
AND you can get full price refund for all by presenting the chit we give you to Western Foods!
This is not a fund-raiser for us (although all donations are always appreciated) but our way of thanking the businesses that support us through the decades.  
Hope to see you there!
 

August 31, 2020 Golf FORE Fun was a great success!
 
Here's a couple of pictures and there's more if you scroll to the bottom of this page to our Photo Albums.
 
Thank you to our great sponsors, all the golfers, Rotarians that volunteered and our photographers Kimberly Legeard, Noelle Wass and Maxine Medhurst.

***THANK YOU SOOKE***
 
July's Bottle Return was a tremendous success in every aspect.  The response from the community was incredible.  The Bottle Depot sent their largest truck to pick everything up at the end of the day, and we filled it to the back doors.  In fact 3 pallets of cardboard which they normally would have taken away were left in the parking lot due to no space on the truck.
 
One couple took advantage of the "No Limits" and showed up with an extra long U-Haul trailer double stacked with empties.  It took Past President Sam and Rotarian Noelle over 3 1/2 hours to sort and count their return and they walked away with over a $1000 refund!
 
Western Foods was amazed with how many chits were refunded throughout the day.  The town's merchants will have smiles on their faces when they find out that Rotary took nearly 50,000 returnable containers off their hands. 
 
Beside earning the thanks of Sookites for helping them out, they were also very generous to the Rotary Club of Sooke. $1620 in chits were donated, as well as another $353 in cash.  
 
**This was not intended to be a fundraiser, however at the end of a very long day, the Club earned $1,973.00 in donations!***
 
Once again thanks to all that volunteered and to everyone that cleaned out their bottles and cans. 
 
Thank you to Linda Ferguson, Linda Caines Mooney and Linda Rook for photos.

Welcome our new President Myrtle Acton.  As we move forward during this unusual year we look forward to working with President Myrtle at the helm! 
 
Remember, our whole reason to be is to provide service... if we can help you, let us know.  If you want to help our community and the world - JOIN ROTARY!   

 
 
A limited number of cloth masks are still available at
Sooke Fax and Copy.
We're asking for a donation of $10 per mask.  

  
RAD 2020 (Rotary Auction Dinner)
 
Rotary Auction Dinner postponed until October 31
 
Hopefully we will be able to gather again on that date. 
 
In the meantime, we thank our donors and those that have purchased tickets for your continuing support. 

 
During this time of isolation, we are still seeking speakers for our Wednesday meetings.  It will be a ZOOM meeting and we'd love to hear about about regional community needs/services and more during these crazy times! Do you have an interesting story to tell?
