Donation from Markdale Rotary Club

We were honoured to receive a cheque from the Markdale Rotarians for $4488.48 at our January, 2020 executive meeting. The donation  was one half of their profit from their February 2019 Rotary Ski-Around Day.  On behalf of the Auxiliary, President Beth Kennedy graciously accepted the cheque.
