Saturday October 17 Rotarians in the region gathered to load their 50th and 51st container of school furniture and equipment. Led by Grand Bend Rotary, members from London and Woodstock-Oxford Rotary also have been involved assisting.

Thanks to a good working relationship with the Thames Valley School Board, surplus desks, chairs and other school items are donated to Rotary for shipment abroad. So far, containers have gone to Haiti and South Africa, with Philippines also on the list for rehabilitation of schools damaged from the typhoon disaster(s).
