Quoted from President Adam Ireton:
 
"Each and every day I'm proud to be a member of the Rotary Club of Port Hardy, but yesterday was an extra special day.  Our club raised $8000 to donate to the Gazette Hamper Fund. 

I said it at our meeting yesterday, this really is my favourite day of the Rotary calendar. Rotary International does some incredible charitable work around the planet, from polio eradication, to environmental projects, bringing clean water to communities in need etc., but for me, the most important work that our local club does is helping our community in times of need. Being able to present Sandy Grenier and the Gazette  Hamper Fund with a cheque like this is a pretty powerful thing. 

This cheque represents the hard work and giving of all of our membership, and the charitable donations of our community.  There are so many people in the community that have a hand in this donation, and that makes it all the more special.  I know that the need is high for our community at this time of the year, and am so glad that Rotary was able to help!"
