All aspects of the 2016 annual Rotary Foundation were very successful… great organization and hospitality provided by the Rotary Clubs of Brockville, Prescott and 1000 Islands (Brockville).
 
Representatives from 12 clubs enjoyed the beautiful weather and great fellowship while the Annual fund benefitted by just over $10,000 USD.  The “Walking Stick” is presented annually to the club making the largest donation. 
Three years after these funds have been donated to The Rotary Foundation Annual Fund, 50% of these funds are returned to assist our Rotary clubs to undertake projects in both the local community and internationally.
 
Local projects  such as upgrades at Dodge Pond and Dictionaries 4 Life benefit young people here in D7040. Many of the international projects focus upon improving access to clean water and health care both of which impact women and children.
