Santa Claus Arrived!!




On Saturday, December 2, the Rotary Club of Wiarton was honoured to once again participate in the town's Santa Claus Parade.  The Rotary Club sponsors the float that the big guy rides each year in our parade.  This is a fun tradition and this year HUGE crowds lined the main street on a warm and dry Saturday evening.

 The Rotary Club also entered a float and escorted the 'reindeer' in front of Santa.  It was a fun evening for young and old.

Happy Holidays everyone!!

Wiarton Rotary in Cameroon

For over 20 years, the Rotary Club of Wiarton has worked with over 40 other Rotary Clubs to make a significant impact in Cameroon, Africa.  Together we are the 'Hand Up' committee and we have partnered with Rotary Clubs and NGO's in Cameroon to provide clean water to over 200,000 people at a cost of under $3.00/person.  We have also funded agricultural training to ensure a sufficient supply of food in very rural and poor areas of the country.  We give people an opportunity to be independent, earn their own way and to educate their children for a better tomorrow.

Most recently the Rotary Club of Wiarton has partnered with the Rotary Club of Kumbo and an NGO, SHUMAS, to provide clean water, latrines and solar power to schools in a rural area.  We also provided chickens, feed and training in raising them to farmers in the Ngie region.
