True North's February Hands-on at Food Rescue
StoryThumbnail

We had a great time helping Food Rescue with the weekly chore list as our Hands On Project for February! Duties included: peeling, coring of hundreds (seemed like thousands) of apples to make into apple sauce. We also re-wrapped of cheese, bagged tea, made trail mix and separated broken eggs. It was fun to help out and learn more about the incredible work being done at Food Rescue! Thanks Ruby

Rotary Club of Yellowknife True North offers second Rotary option for would-be volunteers

A second rotary club has been chartered in Yellowknife, and by all accounts, there’s room for two of the international service clubs in this city.

Meeting Thursday evenings over appetizers and a cash bar at the Top Knight since May, Rotary Club of Yellowknife True North members have hit the ground running with their volunteer efforts; not in competition, but in harmony with the well established Yellowknife Rotary Club.
