Neil's Rib Fest Adventure

 

ImageWhen I said I was looking to build partnerships last year, little did I know what this would entail! Over the Canada Day Weekend, there were 35+ volunteers from this Club who put in 550+ hours of volunteering over four days. I had the onerous personal responsibility of helping judge all 16 Ribbers for their BBQ chicken, pulled pork and ribs. I also was forced to perform taxing PR duties with Pinball Clemons, Miss Teen Ontario and Miss Teen Canada.

Pat Neuman agreed to take on the initial organisation of this initiative and Jai Persaud was our weekend coordinator. He was with me 12 hours each and every day, keeping everyone in line. On Sunday, he became a well-deserved Rotary Warrior. I am delighted to report that our Club’s net proceeds were $65,000. This in addition to the same amount going to the Rotary Club of Etobicoke and monies being provided to the Toronto Sunrise Club, who were gracious enough to help us staff the weekend. Thank you to all who came out and brought friends. I am looking forward to seeing even more of you next year!
