It’s been a very exciting and busy summer.  The Rotary Club of Hamilton has supported the summer literacy camp for all the children in Hamilton area to enjoy camp at no cost to the family.  This gives everyone a chance to enjoy camp, make life long friends but even more learn with literacy.
In addition to this 6 week program, supported by the Rotary Club of Hamilton, we are also very excited to announce the Extreme Park Makeover by the City of Hamilton Ward 3 with “Woodland Park”; specifically with the Literacy Trail.  Currently an alleyway, will soon be a clean, safe path for the community to walk and even stop to enjoy.

The City of Hamilton and CN EcoConnexions have invested a total of $50,000 to makeover a trail connected to Woodlands Park in north-east Hamilton.

Mayor Fred Eisenberger and Ward 3 Councillor Matthew Green were joined by representatives from CN and Tree Canada, ProQuip, FPM3 as well as other officials, Thursday August 11, 2016 at 11am, to make the announcement to the community and about 100 kids from the Rotary Club of Hamilton’s summer literacy program, including about 20 Syrian refugee children.

This park will showcase a Park N Charge, and a MaxSun solar powered light post along the trail.   Another great project and program supported by the Rotary Club of Hamilton.
