Rotary Club of Melfort supports Literacy initiatives
The Rotary Club of Melfort supports Literacy initiatives both locally and internationally. Our goal is to help eliminate child poverty and literacy is a crucial component  to achieving this goal.
The "Books for Babies" and the "1000 Books Before Kindergarten" projects of Melfort Public Library are extremely important in the development of children and their learning to read. We are proud to sponsor these projects.
Receiving the $1,000 donation from Rotary are left to right: Renee Chambers, Library Kathleen Copeland, Raeanne Usselman, Shaye Mansiere, Rotarians Brian Cocks, Ken Singer and Gailmarie Anderson.
Rotary Club of Melfort Supports Girl Guides
The Rotary Club of Melfort is pleased to support the Girl Guides Pipon Rally where they will learn and participate in Indigenous and Metis Culture traditions. We support the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action that encourages our cultures to learn from each other and to build positive relationships going forward. This is a wonderful educational project that should instill in the participants a sense of responsibility to embrace all cultures in diversity, equity and inclusion. 
The rally will be held on January 28, 2023 at the Kerry Vickar Centre in Melfort, bringing together young ladies ages 5-18 years from Melfort, Tisdale & Nipawin.  
Such an amazing Rally could not happen without the support from the Rotary Club of Melfort who's donation $1000 to the event will help put on a top rated day full of fun, interactive activity/learning, while  providing life long memories for our girl guide attendees.

Rotary Club of Dryden Recognizes President Patty Vann
At a recent gathering of Dryden Rotarians, club president Patty Vann received a certificate from District 5550 Governor, Fred Wright, in recognition of the Dryden club's contributions to PolioPlus.
The PolioPlus initative was launched by Rotary International in 1985 and was the first and largest internationally coordinated private-sector support of a public health initiative. The eradication of polio is one of Rotary International's longest standing and most significant efforts. Along with its partners, Rotary has helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children against polio in 122 countries and reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide.  For more information about Rotary and its polio eradication efforts: https://www.rotary.org/en/our-causes/ending-polio.
Representatives from the Rotary Clubs in Saskatoon joined forces this holiday season to raise $15,000 for The Saskatoon Food Bank in a time of need.
