Operation Red Nose completed its third weekend of getting people and their vehicles home safely in the Flin Flon area. The Rotary Club’s Committee Chair Ted Hewitt says it was their best weekend so far this year. He reports between Friday and Saturday they provided a total of 69 rides which gives them a year to date total for the past three weekends of 141 which is about 50 more than what they did last year. He says between Friday and Saturday they had a total of 28 volunteers from three different groups, the Women’s Resource Center, the United Steelworkers and some Rotarians.
Hewitt added so far this year they have received over two thousand dollars in donations that go to local youth activities and organized sports. Operation Red Nose operates this coming Friday and Saturday and December 23rd and 31st. Hewitt says they are still looking for volunteers to help out on the 23rd and New Years Eve. You can volunteer by calling Ted at 204-687-7450.
