After Two Years Rotary's Children's Christmas Party Was Back!
Two years is a long time in the life of a child and, unfortunately, the pandemic forced the cancellation of our Annual Children's Christmas Party for that period of time. But, on December 4th we were back with a party that was bigger and better than ever with face painting, balloon animals, a magician, button making, cookie decorating, Elsa and Anna, lots of food, ice cream, presents for the children, and SANTA!
Our thanks to the families who attended and to the Rotarians who worked to make it such a success.
The Fifth Annual Concert to Feed the Need in Durham
was an outstanding success!
The Fifth Annual Concert to Feed the Need in Durham held on Saturday, December 10th at the Biltmore Theatre in downtown Oshawa was once again an outstanding success.  The audience of about 165 were treated to an amazing show that featured a diverse lineup of performers from across Durham Region and beyond.
Although final numbers are not yet in, the concert appears to have raised about $30,000 for Feed the Need in Durham.  What is even more amazing is that for every dollar donated, Feed the Need can distribute three (3) meals for those in need.  With the funds generated by the concert, that is an incredible 90,000 meals! 
Feed the Need in Durham collects and distributes food and other essentials to more than 65 member agencies across the Region - places like food banks, shelters and school programs.
The concert was proudly presented by Rotary Clubs in Durham Region.
