NEWS RELEASE

SAULT NORTH ROTARY

*****************************
The fourth of 12 draws for 2013 for the Sault North Rotary Club Trip of the Month draw was held Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at Algoma’s Water Tower Inn lunch meeting.

On the first Wednesday of each month, there is a draw for a trip for two as well as two secondary prizes of $150 each.

After each prize is won, the name goes back into the drum for the next draw.

April 03, 2013 - Ireland - Eight-night tour from Dublin, including Giants Causeway, Derry, Donegal Town, Galway, Cliffs of Moher including flights on Air Canada plus more.

The principal focus of the Rotary Club of Sault Ste. Marie North is youth education and development.

Our club supports the following local initiatives:

  • Each Fall we hold a Youth Leadership Awareness Conference and invite over 50 high school students from each of the high schools in the Algoma region to participate in a hands on and interactive learning environment. The event takes place on a weekend from Thursday night to Sunday at noon in a remote venue. It embraces sports and motivational activities to help youth develop leadership skills to take back to their respective schools.
  • Annually we support Send a Kid to Camp under the auspices of Big Brothers and Big Sisters to meet specific children's needs.
  • Our Academic Excellence Program recognizes the top 20 percent of all grade eight students by a newspaper ad placed in their honor in the Sault Star. A certificate of academic achievement is presented to the top 10 percent and to the most improved student in each class. High school valedictorians are acknowledged with a Sault Star ad and a luncheon in their honor. At the college level, our club supports the annual Jack Code Memorial Bursary to a Sault College student.
  • In recognition of Rotary International's 100th anniversary in 2005, Sault Rotary and Sault Rotary North Clubs have jointly contributed to the installation of additional playground equipment which is handicap accessible.

@ Neon Angel

They will start going back on sale closer to September or October (generally closer to the end of the year). They sell out pretty quick, and I think they are increasing the amount of tickets next year.. going from 500 to 600 I think.. but I could be dead wrong.
Contact Sault Ste. Marie Rotary North if you'd like more info on buying tickets or on trips they offer.
