President Darrell Smith was contacted by Sandi Ramsey, President of the Rotary Club of Trenton about a multi-club Christmas Sweat Equity Project that would see Christmas plants delivered to local hospitals, long term care homes, retirement residences and VON caregivers in the Quinte area.  This initiative was put in place by Dahlia May Flower Farm earlier in December with a call out to the community to assist with delivery of over 3,000 plants over a two day blitz.  Seven (7) Rotary Clubs stepped up with volunteers, including the Rotary Club of Belleville.  When we put out the call for help in delivering all of these plants throughout the community the Rotary club stepped up to the plate, with seven different rotary chapters involved and more volunteers then we almost knew what to do with!  JB Print donated a greeting card with each plant, Dahlia provided the labour and invited sponsors to support the cost of the plant.  Students in the community hand-made 3,000 cards to go with the plants as well.  Lots of colour to let the seniors in these homes know that their community was thinking about them over the holidays.  A warm gesture of love and caring.  Thank you to all who helped.
