The Rotary Club of Welland held its 6th annual Curling Social on February 13, 2024. Hosted by the Welland Curling Club, we had 84 Rotarians, family, and friends attend, with a complement of 56 curlers on 14 teams.
District Governor Scott Marcin (Rotary Club of Amherst South NY) graced us with his presence, along with our own District Governor Elect David Alexander.
The Rotary Clubs of Grimsby and Fonthill fielded rinks, as did the Niagara Children’s Centre, The Rotary Club of Welland has been associated with the Centre since its establishment in 1964. We were proud to have two rinks of Special Olympians join us. Two energetic teams from the City of Welland as well as various teams of Welland Rotarians and friends rounded out the roster.
Everyone had an enjoyable evening, including Rotary Youth Exchange Student Satoka Hayashi from Japan. She is hosted by the Rotary Club of Fonthill. As it was a fun event, a draw was held to determine the winning rink, the prizes being Gift Cards for each member of the rink.
We plan to continue this annual event. Look for us in 2025, our 105th Anniversary!
