Operation Red Nose had a successful first weekend of taking vehicles and their owners home safely in the Flin Flon area. Rotary Club committee chair Ted Hewitt says the first weekend has a history of being slow and this year was no different. He says they had good coverage for any people who wanted to use the service. He reports between Friday and Saturday nights they provided a total of 13 rides and those who used the service appreciated getting themselves and their vehicle home safely. He thanked those who volunteered from the Border Explorers Friday night and the Kinsmen on Saturday night.
Hewitt adds they are still looking for groups or individuals to volunteer for New Year’s Eve. Forms are available at www.operationrednose.com or call Ted at 204-687-7450. Operation Red Nose will run Fridays and Saturdays through December except Christmas and Boxing days and will run on New Year’s Eve.
