The following information has been provided by Dianne Spencer to President Darrell, Fellow Rotarians and guests,
 
Many Rotarians have seen the media report earlier this week announcing the results of the Salvation Army’s Kettle Campaign - which totalled $322,711, surpassing their goal of $315,000.  This in spite of the challenges of Covid, and a shortened campaign period.
 
Dianne offered some Happy Bucks to recognize the participation of Belleville Rotarians in their support leading to this wonderful result - 29 Rotarians stepped up to help with the kettle at the LCBO; collectively giving 110 hours, or 4 days and 14 hours of their personal time. Special kudos to two Rotarians who each volunteered 10 hours to the campaign - Nadine Langlois and Marg Wagner - wow! Kudos as well to those who volunteered 6 hours to attend to the kettle: Ian Acton, Karen Baker, Brenda Snider, Jamie Trudeau and Ken Wheeler! 
 
Valerie, our Salvation Army contact, advises that $16,381 was raised at the kettle at LCBO, making it the top location for the month of December. Of course the Salvation Army is very appreciative of the Club’s support.
 
This great team effort was pulled together on behalf of the Club thanks to technical support provided by Kerry Paul, and the super organizational efforts of Carol-Lynn Burnett-Michaud and Secretary extraordinaire Jo-Anne Wheeler - a huge thank you to each of them.
 
Dianne also wanted to recognize the efforts of six non-Rotarians who volunteered, adding another 34 hours to the time provided to support the Salvation Army. The bottom line - a total of 144 hours was provided to help with the kettle campaign by 29 Rotarians and 6 other volunteers. 
 
Dianne was pleased to donate $35 in Happy Bucks to celebrate a fabulous team effort, which helped achieve a fabulous campaign result in support of our community. Thank you!
