  • Still waiting on one of the community partners.
  • Thus far, $900.00 has been spent and paid out.

ELSS Bursary

  • We have been contacted by the school. We have confirmed to them that we have budgeted for and will supply a $1500 grant to a student.

Bike Rack Project

  • This project is underway. The manufacturer has been contacted and there is a small increase in the cost.
  • In addition, if we wish the racks to be galvanized, they would have to be shipped to a company in southern Ontario for that process at further additional cost of $300.00 per rack.
  • Alternatively, we could opt. for a top-coat paint for $40.00 per rack. This would require repainting every few years.
    • Total cost would be approx. $2800.00 for three bike racks.
    • We possess an $1800.00 district grant; therefore, our portion would be $1000.00.
  • We still need to do some follow-up with the city regarding locations and installation.
  • We will go ahead with locally manufacturing the bike racks and having a top-coat paint applied.
    • Besides cost, this would have the added benefit of including the Rotary logo on the ends of the racks.

Button Project

  • From the slogans submitted by Rotarians, the club chose “Rotary Club of Elliot Lake {heart symbol} Vaccines”
  • Will work with the Elliot Lake Family Health Team regarding distribution during vaccination clinics.
  • Have a $250.00 budget for this project.


  • Jenna will contact he high school to attempt to find two students wishing to participate in this project.

March Water/Environmental Project

  • On of the clubs on the US portion of the Great Lakes has issued a challenge to all other clubs along the Great Lakes to undertake a clean-up project during the month of April.
  • Our district is taking up the challenge and want our clubs to participate.
  • If all clubs participate this will be the largest such event in North America.
  • Technically, our biannual clean up of hwy. 108 would qualify.
  • Club members are in favour of participating but cleaning up the waterfront trail between Westview Park and Spruce Beach would be more in the spirit of the project.
    • Yes, we would still need to do our two hwy. 108 clean ups.
  • Tentatively scheduled for April 27th at 17:00. More details to follow.

Budget Update

  • Presented by Gil.

For the Good of Rotary

  • Rotary weekend approaching. Taking place virtually this year. Good information sessions for Rotarians wishing to learn more about operations.
  • Potentially two new members interested joining.

Hope BC Report

  • Rotary Club of Rossland BC has fully subscribed to a 100 Who Care project and has used our club’s website (100 Elliot Lakers Who Care) for guidance with their project.
  • Spring has sprung in Hope. Grass and trees are green. Already been golfing half a dozen times.
  • Hoping to be home by mid-April.
