Gravenhurst Rotary Club Bursary Fund students meet to thank donors at club meeting Monday

GRAVENHURST — The Rotary Club of Gravenhurst welcomed some of the town’s college and university students home for the holidays at their weekly Monday meeting at the Muskoka Discovery Centre.
More than 30 students received support from the Rotary Bursary Endowment Fund for the 2017-2018 term.
Many college students could not attend due to the extension of their term, resulting from a strike affecting all colleges in Ontario.
This year the club provided $95,000 to students.
That brings the club’s total contributions to students from public or Catholic high schools in search of a post-secondary degree, diploma or certificate to over $310,000.00 in the past six years.

$95,0000 this year
$310,000 over 6 years

The luncheon also provided an opportunity for donors to the Bursary Fund to meet those student benefitting from their generosity and the opportunity for students to thank some of those generous donors for their gift.
