The Rotary Cash Calendar winning number was bought by long time Roberts Creek resident, Allan Cobbin. He has been buying the Rotary Calendars for many years and gives them to his family and friends for Christmas. This year his son was the lucky recipient of the calendar that won the grand prize of $3,000! Steve & Ginny Cobbin live in North Vancouver.
Allan was an active beekeeper for many years and had his beehives at many locations on the Sunshine Coast. He still had some honey for the guests that dropped in with a $3k cheque from Rotary! He even wore his beekeepers jacket to ‘receive’ the cheque on behalf of his son and daughter in law. He was sold the winning calendar by Mike Price who is seen handing the cheque to him for his son.
