Annual Rotary Cruise Raffle

Pipestone Flyer

On the bitterly cold morning of Saturday November 29, the exit lobby of Canadian Tire in Leduc saw a table set up with cheerful Rotary Club of Nisku-Leduc members selling tickets to the Annual Cruise Raffle, a popular fundraiser that each year sees its goals met and critical funds raised. Everyone likes to dream that they could win a cruise vacation, and when the weather is so dangerously cold, that dream holds even more appeal, so the cause of a Rotary Club that contributes to local charities and faraway communities is even harder to resist. The sale of the Cruise Raffle tickets continues.

City of Leduc Mayor Greg Krishke, realtor Grant Leach and business owners Nadine Leming and Hilda Holloway were some of the Rotary Club members who braved the blasts of cold air to greet Canadian Tire shoppers and dynamically promote the tickets. While dozens of snowblowers headed out of the store with regional homeowners overwhelmed by the recent heavy snowfall, dozens of tickets for the Rotary Cruise Raffle were sold.

Well done Rotary Club. We know you do wonderful works in our community, and abroad.
