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 it went well. He reports they provided 27 rides which was slightly more than last year with volunteers from the Border Explorers Snowmobile Club and the Rotary Club of Flin Flon. He adds even though Operation Red Nose is offered as a free service those receiving the service were very generous with their donations. He notes they are seeking volunteers for Saturday December 21st and New Years Eve and volunteers can pick up applications locally at the Credit Union and once completed they need to be taken to the local RCMP detachment with two pieces of ID.
Hewitt adds funds collected are used to support children’s activities with a preference for organized sports.
Operation Red Nose runs every Friday and Saturday night up to and including December 20th and 21st as well as New Years Eve. For more information you can call Ted at 204-687-7450.
