Operation Red Nose wrapped up another season of getting people and their vehicles home safely last week. It started November 27th and ran most weekends in December as well as New Years Eve. The Rotary Club’s Committee Chair Ted Hewitt says the program again was a success. He says they provided a total of 180 rides using a total of 124 volunteer shifts which equates to about 90 to 100 individual volunteers.
Hewitt says even though the service was free riders donated about 28 hundred dollars and with other donations from corporate and other sources within the community they expect to raise in excess of 10 thousand dollars. He adds the money stays in the community to support children’s activities and organized sports.
