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 in the past weekend Red Nose provided a total of 23 rides which is almost double what they did last year so they’re hopeful it’s a sign of the times for the next month or so. They also had a total of 23 volunteers from the Border Explorers, a group of friends from Bakers Narrows and some Rotarians.
Operation Red Nose runs every Friday and Saturday night until December 17th as well as December 23rd and 31st. Hewitt says without volunteers Operation Red Nose would not exist adding volunteers are still needed for December 23rd and New Year’s Eve and anyone interested can call him at 687-7450.
