October 15, 2017 Highway 8 Ditch cleanup
On Sunday October 15, 2017 six members of Rotary Centennial and one prospective new club member worked for about 2 hours to pick up litter for 2 km in the north ditch of highway 8 west of the intersection with the turnoff to the Glencoe Golf Club west of Calgary. About six bags of litter were recovered in our work. Most of the litter was plastic and coffee cups, but $55 in bills was found right at the side of the road. After the work we went back to a club member’s home and had lunch and refreshments. A good time was had by all.
November 2, 2017 Work party at the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank
On Thursday November 2, 2017 seven members of Rotary Centennial, two member’s spouses, a prospective new club member and four other volunteers worked for a two hour shift at the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank. The work consisted of sorting fresh vegetables, fruit and potatoes from bulk into family sized packages ready to be placed into food hampers. The estimated weight packaged during the shift was about 1140 kg (2500 pounds) of potatoes and about 1365 kg (3000 pounds) of fruit and vegetables. A good banter occurred amongst the volunteers during the shift, so a good time was had by all.
