Rotary Christmas Party - On Wednesday December 20th the Rotary Club of Burlington held their annual Christmas Party at the Holiday Inn.   The fellowship committee did a fantastic job organizing the event.  One of the annual traditions , is the Secret Santa game.  Each member brings a wrapped gift and members select and trade based on pre-defined rules.  It's all in good fun.  Shown below is Karel Sury wearing the lovely toilet seat he received as part of the game.

 


 
Rotarians Serve Christmas Dinner at Bonnie Place - On Tuesday December 12th members of our Rotary Club served dinner to residents at Bonnie Place. It was a very festive event, with music performed by Larry Armatage and lots of signing by residents and our Rotarian ELVES.  Click on the link for additional photos.

 


 
Rotarians Provide Christmas Presents to Families in Need - On Saturday December 9th, members of the Rotary Club of Burlington wrapped Christmas gifts for disadvantaged families. It's been a Rotarian tradition to work with local schools in supporting families so they can enjoy Christmas.  The Christmas Box Program was a great success this year and gifts were delivered to the families, 58 children and 28 adults. 

 


 
Rotary Supports the Angel Project - Through the efforts of Diane Mageau and many other Rotarians, including support from our Community Service Committee chaired by Nancy Sumaruk, the Rotary Club of Burlington generously donated hundreds of dollars' worth of personal hygiene items to the Angel Project charity which helps the less advantaged patients in hospitals.

 
Rotary Harbourtown Concert - On November 26th a fundraising concert to raise money for PolioPlus was held at the Burlington Performing Arts.  We are especially proud to have one of our members Larry Armatage, as the co-chair and member of the Harbourtown Music group.  In the picture below is the other co-chair Glenn Warnica thanking the patrons for attending the concert.  Click here for some additional pictures.
