Site Clean Up Event

Wow! A HUGE thank you is extended to the many fine folks, young and old, who gave up 3+ hours of their Saturday morning to volunteer their time and effort in helping to clean up the site of our future Community Park. In 3 hours we were able to fill a huge dumpster and make the grounds look SO much nicer. Many hands make light was proof. The rain and drizzle couldn't have dampened the community spirit there today if it had indication of just how incredible our September 14th Build Day will be...truly awesome!

Dear Rotary Friend,

The Rotary Club of Port Hawkesbury will be holding their Inaugural Golf Tournament Friday June 7th, 2013 at the Antigonish Golf & Country Club. The proceeds from this year’s tournament will be going towards the Port Hawkesbury Playground Project.

The format of this golf tournament will be a 4-person scramble, starting with 9:00am Shot-gun start. It is asked that you arrive at least 45-30 minutes before to collect your team scorecard to register and prepare to depart to your starting hole.

Upon completion of the round we will gather for a steak dinner at the club house and distribute the team and door prizes.

Please find some way to contribute to this important fundraiser for the Town of Port Hawkesbury in any or all of the following ways:
 • Cost to register a team is $500 which incl. Golf, Steak Dinner and 2 Power carts.
 • A tee sign can be purchased for $150
 • A donation of a team prize (4 items) or auction item.

We encourage a prompt response via email, phone letter or entry form and payment by May 15th in order to ensure team entry and reservation of power carts.

Announcement event

It was great to see so many people at this event.  Thank you all for your support.
It was great to here that the Rotary club of Port Hawkesbury pledged to raise a total of $10000 for the community park project. That becomes $20000 with the LTBK award.  That is great.  Also the Strait area chamber are donating 50% of the addmissions from their Lesiure Expo on May 17 towards the community park.  It has already started.  Lets keep it going.  Congratulations everyone.  This is our chance to build our community into something amazing.
