Thanks to the efforts of Joan Peggs, the Rotary Club of Oak Bay’s President-Elect, our Polio Plus lightup, so recently cancelled due to snow, was ran and we managed to get some news coverage. Oak Bay News has covered the event, and better yet, /A\ came out and had Bruce Williams do the weather with the Polio Plus logo in the background. Check it out:
Due to the importation of weather from other parts of Canada, aka snow, the BBQ the Rotary Club of Oak Bay had planned for today has been cancelled.
This evening’s projection is still scheduled to ahead on the side of the Malahat Building on Wharf St, but given it is continuing to snow, the outlook isn’t positive.
The time to end polio is now and the Rotary Club of Oak Bay invites you to come help us out in this quest. Tomorrow between 11am and 2pm, we are holding a hotdog BBQ on the front lawn of the Oak Bay Municipal Hall in the Oak Bay Village. The hot dogs and coffee are all “sold” by donation, with all proceeds going to the PolioPlus project of Rotary International. Thanks to our generous sponsors: COBS Bakery for the buns, Fairway Markets for the wieners and condiments, and Level Ground Trading for coffee. Also thanks to the Municipality of Oak Bay for declaring February 23rd Rotary Day, letting us the lawn of the municipal hall’s lawn, and raising the Rotary flag, as well as to the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria for providing us with a tent in the case of inclement weather. Hope to see you there!
