The Rotary Club of Strathroy is supporting the annual Coldest Night of the Year event.  This years event will be held on February 20, 2021 and is a national fundraising event to raise awareness of and support homelessness initiatives across Canada.  Rotary Clubs in Canada have played an important role in this initiative and have been consistently in the top tier of donor groups nationally.  Funds raised by individuals or groups are used by local charities and this year, the local beneficiary is the "37 Frank Youth Center" facilty run by YFC (Youth for Christ) Strathroy.  Earlier this year, David Berdan made a presentation to our club about 37 Frank and the need for such a facility in our town.

HOW CAN WE PARTICIPATE?

This event is designed to raise funds for the 37 Frank facilty and its ongoing needs.  Participants in the event on February 20, 2021 can do so in numerours ways, from walking in a designated route downtown with your group, walking with larger griups at a location to be announced later (such as the Gemini, etc) or simply a walk around your living room.  Participants are invited to request donations in support of their participation.  Participants will establish a TEAM or join a TEAM via the Website of COLDEST NIGHT of THE YEAR.

We have established a TEAM - ROTARY CLUB of STRATHROY with the Team Captain being Fraser Macdonald.  You are encouraged to join the team or if you prefer, become another Team Captain for our Club or simply donate to our TEAM.  Please follow the instructions on the Website and locate our Team.

If anyone needs assistance or has any trouble navigating the website, please reach out to me for assistance.  

We are hopeful that we can make this a social event as well and while we will need to socially distance, we might be able to plan a STRATHROY ROTARY walk for Coldest Night of the Year in support of 37 Frank.  Deatils to follow.

We will be discussing this event further at upcoming meetings.

Merry Christmas to all
