Elliot Lake Retirement Living Grant Proposal

  • Brenda and Gord made a presentation to the club. The recommendation is that our club apply for a grant from ELRL ( The grant would be used as “seed money” to enhance our fundraising abilities post pandemic.
  • Two ideas were suggested, a pig spit roaster, and a popcorn maker. (Business cases for each were distributed to club members prior to the meeting)
  • Following some discussion, the club determined that we are in favour of the general concept.
    • A formal decision to go forward with a grant application to ELRL for either (or both) of these ideas, or to pursue a different idea, was differed until our next meeting.

Rotary Buttons Project

  • The completed buttons have arrived.
  • With the help of John and Dr. Groh, their distribution has already begun at the mass vaccination clinics.

ELSs Bursary

  • A cheque has been sent to ELSS for our annual $1500.00 bursary commitment.

Bike Racks
