RCNS Supports the Emergence of Riversyde 83
Several weeks ago, we welcomed Eric Haverkamp and Virginia Lucas to our group to tell us about the many community support initiatives they are sponsoring as Directors of the Church Out Serving group. This compelling brief encouraged us to provide Rotary support in several different ways.
First of all, we helped Eric with $1.2K in funds as well as the sweat equity of several RCNS members to install the raised gardens at the Indwell Residence. If you haven't been by Hambleton Hall in a while, it's worth a visit or a drive-by to see the success of this venture.

The Gathering Food Gardens celebrated a successful first year. Rotarians joined in. By season's end, over 5000 meals will have been served from the produce of 14 beds in three locations throughout Simcoe. heart
