Campbell River Daybreak Rotary Club is excited to announce our Quacker 5000 – our major fundraising event that annually raises nearly $40,000 that in turn is invested in local community projects and services. It is because of our sponsors and those who purchase our ‘duck tickets’ that we have been able to contribute in a meaningful way to the larger Campbell River community.
In our twenty-eight years as a local service club we have built the Maritime Heritage Centre and more recently contributed to the creation of Hillcrest House and the Sportsplex Splash Park. The Discovery Pier lights, Youth and Seniors Partnership Project, an annual Christmas family lunch for single parents, the playground at the Spit, the Aquarium and Hospice, are just a few examples of the imprint we hope to leave each year in our community.
This family oriented day will be held at the centrally located Spirit Square on Saturday, September 16th. Featuring activities that appeal to younger children – hockey shoot, story time, duck pond, craft table, face painting, music, and more will be provided as we scoop this year’s ‘lucky ducks’ from their dunking in a pool provided by the Nanaimo Model Boat Club, special guests for the day .
In closing, we Daybreak Rotarians thank you for your support. We may get the accolades, but we couldn’t do it without your generosity and your belief in “Service Above Self”.
