The Rotary Club of Invermere has selected The Invermere Health Care Auxiliary Society, and the Thrift Store Volunteers as Citizens of the Year for the year 2017!
 

The Rotary club of Invermere contributed to the global grant for the water project in Los Naranjos, Honduras.    The project is complete now and 1200 people have clean water.   Here are a few photos.   11 km was dug by hand - 40 men worked each day - one day per week - 280 men in total working every week for about 10 weeks to dig the 11 km ditch by hand and install the pipe.    They put on a wonderful party for us a few weeks ago when we were in Honduras.    Thank you again for helping make this project a reality.     Be well.    Gwen Telling   Creston Rotary

Another great event is behind us.  Thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers and participants for making this fund raiser such a big success.  Our numbers were down this year, probably due to the smoke and stories about road closures but those who participated had fun!
