Rotary helps Len Wood

An Armstrong service club is ensuring students will have access to the latest in equipment.

Armstrong Rotary has donated $2,680 to Len Wood Middle School’s parent advisory council.

“Each year, the PAC receives funding from the government but often there are holes left, areas of need, in specific programs,” said Mary Groeneveld, PAC president.

“This funding provided by the Armstrong Rotary Club is greatly helping to minimize those holes in our school, benefiting so many of our community’s children.”

The funds will go towards a projector for special events, basketballs, medallions for sports teams and vices for the woodworking/technology program.

“Armstrong Rotary is pleased to be a catalyst in the community for other organizations to move ahead with their goals and aspirations,” said Nic Buyer, club president.

The club is able to provide these funds through a a grant from the Ministry of Housing and Social Development’s gaming policy and enforcement branch.

“On behalf of the students, staff and parents at Len Wood we extend, to the Rotary club members, a heartfelt thank you for your generous contribution and continued support,” said Groeneveld.
