November 26th's Rotary Auction found many enthusiastic bidders out to our storefront location across from Big Jim's Spirit Store.  The bidding was energetic, particulary on popular items.  Margaret Warcup, chair for the auction says profits were around $10,000, a sum that will be used to support several ungoing initiatives in Kitimat.  Notable among these are scholarships for youths, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Kitimat Arts for Youth, the United Nations International Day of Peace, Rotary Peace Schools, and Museum in a Classroom.   We also support the Rotary Foundation, and have been part of  projects in Uganda, Mexico, Ethiopia and Haiti.  We recently sent a container to the Phillipines through the Rotary World Help Network.  The idea for the project to send dental equipment to the Phillipines came from Edwin and Doris Enpinado and was chaired by Rotarian Lynda Rocha. 

The members of our Rotary Club send sincere thanks to all the businesses and individuals who gave so generously with auction items and financial support.  It is this help that allows us to contribute to our community and the world beyond
