Kimberley Rotary sponsoring free family swim

Wednesday, December 17, Kimberley Aquatic Centre, 6 to 7 p.m.

In the Rotary International World they celebrate families during the month of December. Kimberley Rotary invites families to a free family swim at the Aquatic Centre from

6 pm to 7 pm on Wednesday December 17. All youths 18 years and under must be accompanied by an adult. The Club is having their own Christmas family lunch in the Aquatic Centre at noon, that Wednesday.

If you would like to join our meeting please speak with a Rotarian to come as a guest. Lunch is being supplied by Grubstake Pizza.

Youth are a priority for Kimberley Rotarians. Ryan Sleik, Youth Committee Chair is responsible for the Selkirk Secondary Rotary Scholarship that provides $2000 to a student who best depicts providing service to their community. They also select a candidate to attend the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) week-long workshop at College of the Rockies in Castlegar. Thanks go to BC Hydro who provides the $600 registration fee for this event.

This year we will also be looking for a student to travel to Saskatoon to attend the Adventure in Science program at the University of Saskatchewan and another worthy student to go to Ottawa for the Adventures in Citizen program. All of these youth events are sponsored by Rotary Clubs in the hosting cities. Creating Leaders for Tomorrow is a commitment Rotary makes to families. Thank you for your continued support of our various fund-raising programs.  Have a very Merry Christmas.
