Minoru Seniors Society Newsletter
In December 2020, Richmond Rotary donated 100 boxes of masks to vulnerable and isolated seniors. Please see below a message from the Treasurer of the Minoru Seniors Society featured in their 2021 spring newsletter. For more information, here is a copy of the newsletter.
"The Minoru Seniors Society Board sought sponsorship to support 100 seniors to a provide a free Holiday Meal plus a $25.00 Save-On Gift Certificate.
Thank you to the following sponsors in Richmond who stepped up, this includes: Save-On Food Stores in Richmond, Canfisco, Coast Capital, The Rotary Club of Richmond, Steveston Rotary Club, White Spot on Ackroyd and Richmond Mall and FreshCo at No 2 & Blundell.
We reached out to 103 seniors for delivery of a special package which included a turkey meal, a gift certificate and a holiday card made by school children. They were delivered to each home by various volunteers and clubs. The volunteers came to the Seniors Center, picked up the packages and delivered them to each home.
We also gave 100 White Spot gift certificates to other seniors. Thank you to the sponsors, volunteers and the staff for making the connection."

Extending sympathies and condolences from Rotary

Richmond Rotary would like to extend our deep condolences and sympathies to the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation on the discovery of 215 children on the site of a former residential school in Kamloops British Columbia.

June is National Indigenous History Month, we ask that you support this national time of mourning to honour these children. HIP (Honouring Indigenous People) is asking everyone to wear orange. Let’s walk together and show our support.
