Operation Red Nose had a successful second weekend in the Flin Flon Area. The Rotary Club’s Committee Chair Ted Hewitt says it was a good weekend providing a total of 24 rides. He says they expected a few more but were satisfied with what they got. He explains volunteers from the Border Explorers and the Ski Club worked the Friday and Saturday and the weather was warm and the road conditions were very good. Hewitt notes even though Operation Red Nose is offered as a free service those receiving the service were very generous with their donations adding all the funds collected stay within our community for children’s activities preferably in organized sports.
Operation Red Nose will again be available Friday and Saturday nights until December 28th as well as New Year’s Eve. Hewitt adds they still need volunteers for December 21st, 22nd and 28th as well as New Years Eve. Forms can be found online at www.operationrednose.com and at Flin Flon and Standard Insurance which are taken to the RCMP office with two pieces of identification.
