On Sept. 22, 2018, we  did our semi annual  Adopt - A - Highway initiative from Exit 1K to Fultz House. 
 
On Sept. 22, 2018, 14 members and friends of Rotary took on the clean up of all the garbage nesting on the sides of the road by Exit 1K leading into Lower Sackville........
 
 
 
The Salvation Army was seeking volunteers for its annual Christmas Kettle campaign, which ran from mid- November to December 24th. Christmas Kettle Attendants were needed to help raise funds at the Kettles located in shopping areas throughout the community.  Many Rotary Club of Sackville and Area Members donated their time to help in this effort.  The Salvation Army reciprocates with help for our Wishes Tree project.  Well done.

BOOKS! BOOKS! BOOKS!

November was our big book giveaway!  For the fourth consecutive year we delivered dictionary / gazetteers to grade 3 students in our local Elementary schools and for the first time we joined up with Sackville Library to give away reading books to young people attending The Holly Jolly party before the Tree Lighting at Acadia Park. We are able to access reasonably priced, good quality books from The Dictionary Project and First Books Canada, and each book we give away has a plate label showing it was a gift from us...…

 This year our Wishes Tree at Wal-Mart in Bedford Commons was the most successful it has ever been, thanks to contributors posting on social media and encouraging a wider reach. Thank you once again to the whole community for support of this project.

However, also through social media, and a question about seeing the same tag more than once, we realised that despite this being the 5th year for this project, some clarification is required about how the project works.

It has been perceived as a “senior’s tree” and whilst this is not wholly inaccurate it is so much more than that.........................

Its nearly that time again! our biggest club fundraiser and best pre Christmas shopping experience!!
Our 7th Annual Live Auction will be held at Brewsters Bedford Highway on Nov 2 at 5.30pm.  Save the date in your diary now!
We are also looking for items to include in the Auction- please email us on Rotarysackville38@gmail.com if you can help us by donating an item to auction. (all items welcome not just gift baskets!) 

For each donation received, you or your business will be identified by name at the time of the auction. Business participants will also have the opportunity to get community exposure among the large number of attendees.

This event allows us to continue our high school breakfast programmes, our elementary school literacy support, our book stall and Ker-Plunk  game at Sackville Snowdays and so much more!
