150 Ride Ready Cycles and 100 New Helmets.
 
THANK YOU to all those who helped make our "Recycle Your Cycle" project such a huge success. Those who donated cycles, those who made them ride ready, those who recycled everything possible, those who distributed them, those who donated to the "Helmet Project" (see below), those who supplied storage and transportation and rental of the PODS. Also everyone in our Rotary Club for the hard work which resulted in showing what can be done when a Community Gives Forward Together. What an extraordinary achievement!
 
 
We are sponsoring a children's book giveaway (approximately 270 books) during Sackville Patriot Days Wednesday, June 29th and Thursday, June 30th, as long as they last. Event is held at the Sackville Public Library, 636 Sackville Dr., Lower Sackville. A huge thank you to Shannon and all the staff of the Sackville Public Library and District 14 & 15, Councillors Lisa Blackburn and Paul Russell for their help in our continuing effort to support literacy in our community.
 
 
 
 
Our Club was invited to speak about our "Recycle Your Cycle" project at yesterday's Family Bike Event hosted by the Sackville Rivers Association. A great morning had by all learning about ride safety, road etiquette, riding trails and then off for a Family Bike Ride. Sackville Rivers Association, for more than 30 years, has led the preservation, restoration, and management of the Sackville Watershed. Thanks to everyone for such an enjoyable and informative morning.
 
     
 
 
                 
The “Recycle Your Cycle” project wound up this past Sunday with our Rotary Day of Service.  All partners gathered at The Salvation Army lot to help distribute ride ready cycles and new helmets for each rider.  Sportwheels staff were on hand to position each cycle to its rider and adjust helmets for a good fit.  Our Rotarians, Junk-Works personnel and The Salvation Army were all there to help distribute the cycles. Festivities included a get together, a barbeque, lots of goodies, special cakes, and an area to test ride the cycles.  A community “Giving Forward Together”.
 
Thank you to our partners, Sportswheels, The Salvation Army, Junk-Works and everyone who supported, sponsored, and made it possible to put smiles on the faces of so many children, youths and adults as they received their cycle and helmet.  Truly an amazing project.
 
 
 
 
 
Pat Cathcart - The True Rotarian Award
 
 
 
When members of our Rotary club think about the word INITIATIVE, we immediately think of our member Pat Cathcart!
She was awarded with THE TRUE ROTARIAN AWARD. We are so proud of her and thankful for all that she does for our club, all for the benefit of others.
She’s a true trooper, always looking for ways to help in our community. She was instrumental in many initiatives such as Hunger & Homelessness, supporting the Warming Centre, matching grants for breakfast programs and Wine Survivor, Environmental initiatives, such as our current Recycle your Bicycle, as well as the Polio programs. There are so many more and we are so lucky to have her on our team!! Way to go Pat!!!
