The Rotary Club of Flin Flon kicked off Operation Red Nose for another season at their meeting yesterday. Co-Chair Ted Hewitt says the idea is to get people and their vehicles home safely when they’re out celebrating the Christmas season. Operation Red Nose starts next Friday and Saturday and runs on all Fridays and Saturdays through December and New Years Eve.
While there is no charge for the service donations are accepted and the money goes towards youth sports programs in the community. Hewitt presented cheques to four groups yesterday from last years Operation Red Nose. Flinty’s Gymnists received 3820 dollars for new equipment, the Flin Flon Ski Club 3500 for skate skis for kids, Minor Hockey 3100 dollars for training programs and the Soccer Club 800 dollars for new jerseys.
