Clifford Rotary Club celebrating 75th

Community invited to party planned for Sept. 21

CLIFFORD – Longtime Rotarian Larry Grummett is spreading the word that the Clifford Rotary Club has served the community for 75 years and is revealing facts through One Minute for Rotary on the club’s Facebook page.

The Club was sponsored by the Mildmay Rotary Club on June 23, 1944. An anniversary celebration will be held Sept. 21, with the community invited to join in.

Everyone is invited to visit Clifford Rotary Park from 1 to 5pm for fun, food and fellowship – all for free.

“The Rotarians have changed the landscape of the community, are involved with several projects for the betterment of the community, and appreciate your support,” club officials state.

In June President Trish Palmer welcomed John McVicar as the club’s newest member.

McVicar became a Rotarian in Action by presenting Rotarian Larry Grummett with a certificate that recognized him for his contribution in recruiting new Rotarians.

In July, the Rotarians welcomed the Great Lakes Truck Club to Rotary Park. Throughout the weekend, Rotary volunteers served breakfast and looked after the food booth for hundreds of truck drivers and visitors to the truck show.

The annual truck show was deemed “a huge success due to hard working volunteers who make events like this possible,” club officials stated.
