Lots happening with Clearwater Rotary

Members of Clearwater Rotary Club plan Halloween Costume Dance-cum-Party at Blackpool Hall on Friday, Oct. 30th

Members of Clearwater Rotary Club enjoy participating in community events like the recent FRE-gatta, as well as arranging fun ones of their own. Coming up is a Halloween Costume Dance-cum-Party at Blackpool Hall on Friday, Oct. 30th. Lloyd Bishop is in charge of providing toe-tapping music, and a midnight lunch is included in the ticket price. It’s a real deal: $15 each or $25 for two; prizes will be awarded for best costumes.The Community bus is available for free rides home between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.

A presentation to families with a teen (age 15 – 19) interested in becoming an International Exchange Student has already happened and interviews begin on Oct. 15th at CSS. A successful recipient will spend their 2016-17 school year in a foreign country. As possible choices of the place they would like to live for that time, they can suggest three countries out of a long list of options. As well, we will be hosting a student from another country, providing many opportunities for locals to learn more about a different part of our world. Our Clearwater club, like all other Rotary Clubs, is part of Rotary International.

Planning for the Christmas Tree Light-up and Winter Market on Sunday, Dec. 6 has begun. More information will follow, but it’s never too late to start gathering your ideas and supplies to enter the Christmas tree decorating contest.

One of Rotary’s projects this past summer was working with Parks to help maintain a couple of the most popular trails in Wells Gray Park. Members enjoyed being out in the fresh air, seeing the sights, and exercising their muscles!
