Again this year, with all of the pandemic restrictions that we live with, the Rotary Club of Norfolk Sunrise found a way of making the year end on a positive note. Again this year, Bettyann Carty took to organizing a fun and nutritious meal for the residents at the Indwell Hambleton Hall accommodation in Simcoe.
Bettyann writes in that; "We provided 45 dinners from Swiss Chalet, $50 gift cards and goodie bags to 39 men and 6 ladies. It was well received and appreciated. As was quoted in their thank you note, “Our gift demonstrates that our Rotary Club has shown the tenants love and acceptance into our Norfolk Community”.  I want to thank Gail Bouw, Jim and Lynda Simpson and Louise Schebesch for your help with putting the bags together and picking up the dinners at Swiss Chalet. Also, a big appreciation to the monetary donations which enabled us to “pay it forward” with this event.  Happy New Year."
As 2021 closes, we are reminded of the kindness and generosity of corporate citizens such as Swiss Chalet as well as certain individual donors, the essential community support offered by the likes of Indwell and the continuing community roles played by service organizations such as our own.
