In spite of the snow Operation Red Nose was out last Friday and Saturday nights. The Rotary Club’s Committee Chair Ted Hewitt says they had another successful weekend of getting people and their vehicles home safely. He reports Operation Red Nose was busy on Saturday evening but slow on Friday due to the stormy weather but they still provided a total of 46 rides. Volunteers from the Steelworkers Union, the hospital staff, Pharmasave staff plus the community worked the Friday and Saturday and next Friday the 28th the volunteers will be provided by the community. He notes due to difficulty in getting volunteers this time of year Operation Red Nose will not be in operation this coming Saturday evening the 29th.
Hewitt adds they are still desperately in need of volunteers for New Years Eve which is a very busy night. If you can help out application forms are available on line at www.operationrednose.com or at Flin Flon Insurance and Standard insurance. For information you can call Ted at 204-687-7450.
