Operation Red Nose had a successful first Friday of taking vehicles and their owners home safely in the Flin Flon area. Rotary Club committee chair Ted Hewitt says it went well. He says Friday evening Operation Red Nose provided a total of nine rides noting this was their first night of the year which is notoriously slow. He added they had a total of eight volunteers from the Border Explorers to provide the service and next Friday McIsaac School staff and the Kinsmen are providing the volunteers followed on Saturday by the Creighton School staff and the Ski Club.
Operation Red Nose runs every Friday and Saturday night until December 23rd as well as December 29th and 31st. Hewitt says without volunteers Operation Red Nose wouldn’t exist and they desperately need volunteers for December 22nd, 23rd and 31st. To volunteer pick up a form at the Scotia Bank, fill it out and take it to the RCMP office in Flin Flon or Creighton or call Ted at 204-687-7450.
