"I am not exaggerating when I say that the biggest and perceived roughest of our students act like a five year old, giggling with excitement, after receiving their new jacket ...and I am forever thankful for the Rotary's kindness!!! As the Community School Coordinator at Byrne Creek and someone who dearly cherishes our students, I do not have the words to express my deepest gratitude for all that the Coats for Kids volunteers have done for our students over the past four years. Thank you!!!"

Together with the Port McNeil Rotary Club, we have adopted the Kwakiuti Community to support their library needs.Through the government House - Rotary Community Building Literacy Project with Britco and other sponsors, their library Learning Centre is scheduled to be open in summer 2014

Thank you all for your support to make this a reality.
