THANK YOU
 
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our club's Christmas food drive. Your donations greatly exceeded our expectations and made a large difference to those families and individuals who are not as fortunate. Have a safe 2021
Due to the cancellation of this year's Santa Claus Parade, the club has decided to bring a float to various parts of the community on the weekends of Nov 21/22, 27/28 and Dec 5/6. Donations of food for local food banks will be accepted along the routes from those who wish to contribute. Pictured below is the initial construction of the float,
 
 
the final product
 
 
and the construction crew.
 
Meeting virtually during this pandemic has its limitations and changes the way we go forward doing many things.
Our club is joining the NGGives challenge which is benefitting the House of Lazarus. This initiative by the North Grenville Community Fund is aimed at providing family Christmas hampers for those in need. Please support this initiative.
On the weekends of November 21-22 and 28-29, our club will be parading a float through different areas of our community to spread some Christmas cheer. Food donations will be accepted for anyone who wishes to donate.
Stay safe and take care of each other.
This year's Kemptville Youth Centre's annual golf tournament was held at the Rideau Glen. Participants were blessed with great weather and socially distanced friendship. The event, which is a major fundraiser, surpassed expectations due to the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic. Pictured below are members of the event's prime sponsor, The Rotary Club of Kemptville and members of the Youth Centre.
 
One of Kemptville Youth Centre's major fundraisers is its annual book fair. This is a massive undertaking as thousands of books must be sorted before the fair opens to the public. Pictured below are members of the Kemptville Rotary Club who lent a hand in this endeavour.
 
Due to the current public health  situation, our club will not be physically gathering until further notice. Our meetings will be held virtually for the foreseeable future. Please follow public health directives and stay safe. Thank you to those on the front lines for their efforts in keeping us safe.
