Our latest Rotarian of the Month is Angus Orford. Angus and his fellow committee members have ensured our Remembrance Day commemoration continues to be an esteemed tradition in our club. His dedication to creating a program that highlights specific areas of recognition makes each year a special event.
 
Angus is also one of two Rotarians representing our club on the Learning Centre project. His counsel on this item has been very helpful as we go through the process to find a place for Rotary in this worthy endeavour.
 
Thank you Angus, for all you do for the Rotary Club of Charlottetown.
 
We were pleased to donate $500 to 95.1 FM CFCY’s annual Christmas Miracle Campaign. This worthy fundraiser provides gifts to children in need during the holiday season.
