The Rotary Club of White Rock – the oldest Rotary Club on the Peninsula – wishes to thank all the local residents who made its recent 31st annual book sale such a success.

The sale was held at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre in South Surrey and raised almost $40,000 – a 4.5 per cent increase over last year.

The ongoing co-operation of the shopping centre, its retail merchants, service providers and the public has helped the club raise more than $1 million over the years for charitable purposes.

This money has assisted local organizations in providing services to the old, the young and the challenged. It has also contributed to many worthwhile international initiatives, including Polio Plus – a program that has been hugely successful in the eradication of polio around the world. Another recent program has provided, and continues to provide, support to Haiti following its devastating earthquake several years ago.

Closer to home, the Rotary Club of White Rock contributed $250,000 toward the construction costs of the Centre for Active Living. This visionary health centre is now providing state-of-the-art medical and health services to local residents.

Thank you again for helping us play an important role in the growth and well-being of our community.

Jaqui Joys & Peter Short, Rotary Club of White Rock
