Save the Family - Mock Interviews

Save the Family, a Mesa, Arizona based non-profit was introduced to our Club in 2018 by long-time member, Wayne Rish.  Wayne brought his passion for the organization to our Club in an effort to recruit more volunteers and fund-raising to assist Save the Family.

When our members learned that (primarily) women along with their children flee their homes in the night with no provisions and nowhere to go.  Save the Famlily provides a safe apartment or small home which allows the new family to begin again.

Wayne's leadership generated an immediate response from our Club to help with the problem of no beds.  We applied for a District Grant to purchase air mattresses. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED thanks to District 5495 ... we purchased $4000 worth of air mattresses!

We now hold 'Mock Interviews' for Save the Family residents which help prepare them for the all-important job interview.

Our biggest community service project this year is the installation of a community garden and cookout campsite families of Anityville, Ontario. We are tilling the soil in April, and laying our BBQ Pits in May. Lend a hand anytime this summer, as we create a renewable space for community gatherings. 

Teach your children about agriculture, generosity, and the value of teamwork. We all grow better together.

Downtown Beautification
The Downtown Beautification Committee will provide plans and experienced leaders for the project. We will utilize everything from seeds, paint, and good old fashioned elbow grease to develop and maintain sites the community will love again.
Look for our signs advertising the next spots slated for sprucing up. We are always happy to have more helping hands. Give us a call today to help make something beautiful. 
The Downtown Beautification Committee is implemented in partnership with the Public Works Department. Members of the Downtown Beautification Committee include Waylon Smith, Lenny Karl, Barney Flint, Wilma Rubble and Ginny Wooster.

Habitat for Humanity Homes

Together, the District Rotary Clubs and Habitat for Humanity built 10 homes in downtown Anityville to provide home ownership to families living in substandard housing, helping those in need blow by the bubbles of the housing markets. 
Funds to complete the project were raised by Club members and generous citizens like yourself. Construction of the affordable housing was finished in 2015, with no insurance claims yet.  The build was registered with Rotary International as a "Bicentennial Community Development Project."
Combining the goals and resources of your community with the wide reach of Rotary International helps us pool resources, and share them where they can do the most impact. The coordination of the projects brings more assistance to those in need, maximizing the impact of limited and specialized resources. 
The Rotary Club of Anityville (and some members of the nearby city council) partnered with Habitat for Humanity to create 20 town homes on Announcie Street in downtown Anityville.
Member involvement was the focal point in building the homes and surrounding landscapes.  Rotary Club members completed hands-on work alongside other volunteers. The new house keys were presented to 20 families in need at the Harvest Ceremony in October 2016.
When you support Habitat for Humanity with any donation, we never stop paying forward. We invest in mortgages where partner families' payments go to provide for future homes, allowing more families to break the cycle of poverty.  That is what makes Habitats for Beings such a unique and sustainable solution. Your support can be an investment in Canadian families, leaving an impact that will span generations.

123rd Annual Bike-A-Thon

123rd Annual Bike-A-Thon

Last year's ride raised over $196,100. Last year, in 2016, a record  high of 101 Riders joined us for a glorious day and a mountain of fun in Pongo, London.  Every year is another step closer to our goal. We are developing new technologies, and new clinical procedures.
Our ride is 84 km from Anityville to Pongo Dalmation Resort.  We have 3 checkpoints along the way for beverages, security cars en route in case anyone gets into difficulty, a repair van to assist with those inevitable blown tires. Add in an enthusiastic welcoming committee at the Finish, and you can see why our Bike-A-Thon is so uplifting. The resort spas are open for your enjoyment and recovery after a long day of cycling. The day is concluded with a stylish fashion banquet and prized seamstress.
