This week two Niagara Rotary Clubs conducted a joint blood donation drive at the Canada Blood Services (CBS) clinic in Welland.  Five Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Welland joined with nine from the Rotary Club of Fonthill together with seven partners and friends.  A total of 21 blood donations were collected as a result of this combined effort. In addition, Welland Rotarian and community volunteer extraordinaire Freddie Farnum returned as a CBS volunteer manning the refreshment table.
It gives Niagara Children's Centre great pleasure to present this year’s Dr. William J. Orr Tribute Award to the Rotary Club of Welland.   The Selection Committee unanimously agreed that the Rotary Club of Welland embodies the full spirit of the Dr. Orr Tribute Award.  The committee felt it was particularly fitting to recognize your Club as part of your Centennial celebrations and close to 100 years of supporting children with special needs.
On Saturday November 7th, Welland Rotarians held their 1st Rotary Club of Welland Park clean-up.12 Rotarians and four family members participated. The City of Welland provided garbage bags, gloves, pick-up sticks and sharpie containers to keep everyone safe.
