Oak Bay Rotary helps out local schools

Recently, the club presented a $3,500 cheque to McAulay school.

Victoria’s MacAulay School has five new projectors, thanks to the Oak Bay Rotary Club.

Recently, the club presented a $3,500 cheque to the school. A total of $1,100 was raised through Thrifty Foods Smile Card program and the remaining funds through other Rotary club fundraisers.

This is exactly what the school needed” said school principal Tom Thorson.

Oak Bay Rotary Club past-president Heather Aked added: “In the past years the Thrifty Smile Card funds have enabled our club to purchase dictionaries for Quadra elementary and smart boards for George Jay and Quadra Schools. This is one way where a local business assists institutions such as Rotary in their fund-raising activities.”
