Many people are familiar with the Rotary Internationals’ work to support great causes in our Canadian communities and abroad. Many others are not aware of the Rotary Club’s mission and processes.

Quoting the introduction words on its website, “The Rotary Club is a grass-roots organisation consisting of business professionals and community leaders that volunteer time, talent & resources in order to remedy vital community needs.” Over 1.2 million members worldwide lend their generous support and tireless energy to various projects, including the distribution of life-saving medical equipment to countries in need, leadership awards and other endeavors benefitting children and youth (i.e. the Interact Clubs) Overseas Groups Study Exchanges and many more. There are countless Rotary Clubs in Canadian municipalities.

The Nisku-Leduc Rotary Club is a group of local dedicated members who gather every Thursday morning to share the inspiring news of their good works and to support year-round fundraising events that contribute to these great projects. The Annual Rotary Club’s Cruise Raffle is a popular fundraiser.

On December 18 at Red Tail Landing Golf Course, after enjoying Christmas favorites performed by Jim Montney and a friend, Rotarians were happy to announce the winners of the 2014 Rotary Club Annual Cruise Raffle:

• Winner of the “Anywhere On Earth” Devonian Travel Cruise is Corinne Strachan, a City of Leduc resident.

• Winner of the Vegas Trip, 8 nights in the City of Lights is Lynn Rehn, a Calmar resident.

• Winners of a $1,000 certificate are Robert Leitch and Holly McIndoe.
