The Rotary Club of Welland’s 2nd Purse Bingo is ready to go on Wednesday May 25, 2022. It’s another great night out with friends and family, with some great purses as prizes. And a special extra Bingo Game to win a luxury purse!
The Rotary Club of Welland, for many years, has supported children and youth to be their best. The Club recently donated $1,000 to Notre Dame College School to provide specialized equipment for the Special Education Classroom’s sensory room. Presenting the cheque to Principal Andrew Boon and Special Education Classroom Teacher Laura Sparkman (centre) are Welland Rotary President Vic Kerschl (right) and Community Service Chair Peter Inman (left).
Rotary Club of Welland President Vic Kerschl welcomed the newest Rotarian Lina DeChellis. Lina is the Manager of Economic Development for the City of Welland. Having attended several virtual meetings since the New year, Lina feels that she can support the motto and vison of Rotary by leveraging her network and skillset to engage with local partners to develop and support creative initiatives to meet the needs of the community, both local and international.

Spearheaded by Rotary District 7090 Governor Frank Adamson (Rotary Club of Fonthill), the Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup initiative is an effort that has grown from a District 7090 service project covering a small portion of Lakes Ontario and Erie to a multi-district plan to focus Rotarians’ attention to all 5 of the Great Lakes and streams and waterways feeding them. 
This week two Niagara Rotary Clubs conducted a joint blood donation drive at the Canada Blood Services (CBS) clinic in Welland.  Five Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Welland joined with nine from the Rotary Club of Fonthill together with seven partners and friends.  A total of 21 blood donations were collected as a result of this combined effort. In addition, Welland Rotarian and community volunteer extraordinaire Freddie Farnum returned as a CBS volunteer manning the refreshment table.
It gives Niagara Children's Centre great pleasure to present this year’s Dr. William J. Orr Tribute Award to the Rotary Club of Welland.   The Selection Committee unanimously agreed that the Rotary Club of Welland embodies the full spirit of the Dr. Orr Tribute Award.  The committee felt it was particularly fitting to recognize your Club as part of your Centennial celebrations and close to 100 years of supporting children with special needs.
