Christmas isn’t just a day…it is a frame of mind!

Christmas isn’t just a day…it is a frame of mind!

You made magic happen yesterday for over 725 children at Cathy Wever School. We should all be proud to be Rotarians today. Not only did we have our Rotary Club’s largest hands on service project, but we raised a record amount of funds to cover all the costs associated with the Children’s Christmas Celebration.

There are so many outstanding stories from the Children’s Christmas Celebration. The children, the food, the computers, ice cream, books, gifts, singing, dancing and yes many volunteers helping make this a magical day!

There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as the power of a small group of people who do something good in the world. That is exactly what happened…. We filled tummies and put smiles on the faces of the children. You made Christmas happen for these children.

So many THANK-YOU’s are required – All the volunteers, the sponsors, virtual stocking donors and the members of the Rotary Club of Hamilton who make the Children’s Christmas Celebration possible for 725 inner city children. We could not have done it without the help of each and every one of you.

As we take time over the holiday season to spend time with our own family and friends, may you know that your efforts have made this Christmas special for many children in our community. Thank you!

Take a rest, enjoy the holiday season and remember the words written in Charles Dickens -Scrooge

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all year!”
