Fundy Civic Center
In the spirit of this years International motto Make Dreams Real, The Rotary Club of Sussex Inc. is raising funds to benefit the Fundy Civic Centre.
Throughout various businesses in Sussex and surrounding area, water Bottles have been displayed and filled with your change to help the community meet the funds needed to build our Fundy Civic Centre.
Bud Pearson was the first resident to contribute to the fund raiser. Bud has been collecting pennies and loose change into bottles for years at home and donated them to our cause. Bud, a former Rotarian himself, believes that this is a great way to get everyone to dig deep and make a difference. The Rotary Club wants the community to help. If you have change to donate, drop it into the water bottles as you are shopping. Have a casual day at work and donate the collection. If your piggy bank is too heavy to bring in, we will pick it up from your home! The fund raiser will run until early 2009 and all proceeds will go to the FCC.
We will be updating the progress in the Kings County Record weekly. Look for the Water Bottle!
