Rotary Club of Hamilton Makes It A December To Remember!
December was a month to Remember for the Rotary Club of Hamilton. The Club held it signature event, one of the largest hands-on-service projects of the Club, enjoyed fellowship at the Holiday Shindig and help fight hunger in the community by filling a Community Fridge and the Little Library Box.
The Rotary Club was able to successfully pivot their signature Rotary event the Children’s Christmas Celebration. The RC raised over $14,000 through on-line Virtual Stockings to provide a traditional hot turkey dinner (including Halal turkey), a new book and classroom gifts to over 600 children. The event looked different this year, no large gather in the gym, but Rotarians still delivered and helped fill tummies & put smiles on over 600 local children.
The Rotary Club held their annual Holiday Shindig Social in December. Members, partners and friends gathered for some fellowship, drinks and outstanding charcuterie board. Wanting to support local small business, the event was held Barton Salumeria Curated Charcuterie & Cheese. A huge grazing board was jam-packed w/spreads crackers fruits veggies pickles & lots of nibblies for all to enjoy. It was so nice to enjoy some in-person time!
In response to the ongoing food insecurity issues, the Rotary Club of Hamilton responded will filling the Community Fridge with fresh fruit, meats, and dairy products. In addition, the Little Library Box was filled with books and dry foods for the community to enjoy.
It was a December to remember as we finished the year off with our social media campaign, the Rotary Good Work Countdown. Starting on Boxing Day till January 1st, the RC highlighted the projects & people that made 2021 a successful Rotary Year. The year ended with a special message to our Rotary Members from one of our Rotary Club’s Honorary Members Santa Clause, thanking all Rotarians in the world for their Service Above Self!
