“Rotary builds communities, but can’t do it alone,” Cottam Rotary Club President Dan Levy said on Saturday as he accepted a cheque from Calabria Coastal Bistro’s owners Melissa and Jeff Wiper. The funds will support the service club’s bus shelter project.

Levy explained it is hoped by September 2018 the Cottam Rotary Club will be able to install a bus shelter in front of the Public Library building on Fox Street to protect local students from inclement weather while waiting for the bus in the early morning.

The donation, he commented, was greatly appreciated and demonstrates many parties working together to support a youth-orientated project as a local business is supporting the Cottam Rotary Club in making waiting for the bus a little more bearable for youth.

This donation is a great first step in the fundraising process. It is hoped that other members of the community will step forward to help support the project as well. Those able to contribute can drop off a donation at the Gosfield North Communication Co-operative Limited facility in Cottam during business hours or at the Cottam Rotary Club’s upcoming 55th Annual Horse Show and Fall Festival to take place at Ridgeview Park on September 17.

The more money raised for the project, the bigger the bus shelter Rotary Cottam will be able to establish.
