To kick off their 20th Anniversary celebrations, Clearwater Rotary has begun selling lottery tickets with super prizes, mostly donated. The winner of first prize will be choosing where to fly with a buddy on WestJet. Second prize is a trip on Via Rail to Jasper for two, and third prize is an iPod from Clearwater Computers. Tickets costing $10 each or 3 for $20 are being sold by Rotary members; a table will be set up outside Safety Mart on Friday afternoons.

As well, for the third year, Rotary is holding a gigantic yard sale at Rotary Sports Park on May 4 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Donate items or set up your own table for $10. For pick-up of donated items or more information, phone 250-674-1674 or 250-676-9443. (No large appliances or furniture please.)

Funds raised will help the District of Clearwater set up a new park near the high school, with the hope of eventually building a trail to connect it to Evergreen Acres. On-going projects include sponsoring two scholarships each year at Clearwater Secondary School and supporting Exchange Students between here and foreign countries every second year.
