Recognizing how critical it is for our community to honour our local seniors, to provide them with a respectful, affordable, safe, comfortable housing option, last February Rotarians pledged $75,000 to support the Vermilion Valley Lodge modernization project. It is due to the continual tremendous support the club receives from this community for their fundraising projects; the overwhelming success of their recent Harvest Gala, the Canada Flag project, and the Annual Rotary Garage Sale, that has motivated the local Rotary Club to increase its support for the Valley Lodge (VDHF) to $100,000.
Craig Brown, Vice Chair for the Living Well Capital Campaign, and a Rotarian himself, says “Our club is so proud to be a part of such a generous supportive community. It is truly because of the outstanding community support we recieve for all our fundraising projects that allows our club to invest back into our community for projects of all sizes.”
The VDHF Capital Campaign is continually in awe with the overwhelming generosity of this community and Thanks the Vermilion Rotary Club for extending their gift to our area seniors.
We are within reach of the $1.5 million goal set out in February 2017 and there is still time to contribute – Donate online by clicking here, stop by the Vermilion or Mannville Credit Union Branches, or by mailing or stopping by Vermilion & District Housing Foundation 5401 46 St. Vermilion, AB T9X 0B6
