In regards to our fundraising activities in 2021 - Our Chase the Ace program had to be suspended due to Covid 19- We presented Groves Hospital in Fergus with $35,000. We look forward to being able to finish up our third Catch the Ace game soon.
In 2021, The Rotary Club of Fergus Elora made various additional community donations totalling $18,000: The Elora House, Community Resource Centre, CW Food Bank, Fergus Pregnancy Centre, Portage Ontario, BBBS CW, Learning Disabilities Association of Wellington County, Family Counselling and Support Services Distress Line Program and Children’s Foundation of Guelph & Wellington. Along with our Rotary International- Polio Plus donations and annual fund contributions our charitable donations exceeded  $56,000 for the Rotary ( Covid)  year.
On June 29, 2021, President Rob Galloway became our 56th President. Canada Day celebrations were a great success with Rotary Canada Day Decorations - Home, Business and garden contests. Seniors at our Retirement Centre had a great day with Canada Day Cake and a show by The Fergus Pipe Band. We look forward to resuming our Wightman Bingo, Grand River Raceway Bingo and Catch the Ace.
