GRAVENHURST — We all know how difficult it is to raise funds for very worthwhile causes these days.

Rotary accepts this challenge and is preparing for our next fundraiser.

On Thursday May 29 the Rotary Clubs of Gravenhurst and Bracebridge will be once again hosting their very popular Rotary Muskoka Golf Classic.

This year we will be returning to the exclusive Bigwin Island Golf Club.

This is a much desired course for our golfers and we anticipate a sellout crowd again this year.

For the $210 per golfer fee you will receive continental breakfast, lunch at the turn, fun rewarding oncourse contests, a chance to win a $10,000 hole-in-one; cash prize for putting contest, 18 holes of golf, plus cart, a sumptuous dinner — Bigwin style including a hip of beef — and a chance to win one of our many golf-related items on our silent auction tables.

But most importantly it will be an opportunity to allow Rotary to raise funds for our much needed projects

It would be our pleasure to have you join us on this fun day.

We welcome you either as a foursome or on your own (good chance to meet other fun golfers).

Please contact Bruce Hemphill wbrucehemphill@gmail.com or Barb McCabe marvbarbmccabe@gmail.com

At a recent meeting, The Rotary Club of Gravenhurst was pleased to welcome supporters of the newly organized Womens Drop-In Centre in downtown Gravenhurst.

A number of those involved were present to receive a donation cheque from Rotary.

In the words of Penny Varney: “Rotary has taken a giant step” in their efforts to create this much-needed facility.

And our Rotary Club also paid tribute to our OPP by recognizing and honouring Detective Constable Randy Graham.

Inspector Ed Medved recounted one of many instances that led the OPP to recommend Graham.

This particular incident took place in Gravenhurst recently resulting in the arrest of suspects involved in drug trafficking.

Graham has been with the OPP for 14 years, spending his entire career in the Bracebridge detachment.

He is working towards the title of drug enforcement expert (so needed in our community and across the country.

Muskoka is fortunate to have officers of the calibre of Graham who are working endlessly in the effort to get drugs off our streets.
