Helping out in our commumity is what we do. Recent examples:

Minden Rotary is responsible for the volunteer staffing of the vaccination clinic in the S.G Nesbitt Arena in Minden


The single largest contribution to the community for the past few years has been Minden Rotary's staffing the vaccination clinics. This requires the recruitment, training and support for twenty eight volunteers each day the clinic is open, for three to four days per week. This has enabled our health care workers to vaccinate as many as five hundred people per day. The community response to the call for volunteers has been typical Minden - UNBELIEVABLE! The more that get vaccinated the safer we all are. THANK YOU MINDEN for your support Appreciation and support has been expressed through letters to the editor:


and through articles in the newspaper:


and comments on social media:

"A shout of appreciation to Minden Rotary who took it upon themselves to organize the volunteers. There are two shifts of approximately 14 volunteers required every clinic day. Unpredictable vaccine supplies lead to schedule changes and the leaders have successfully adapted, ensuring available volunteers. Each day is a learning experience, with the leaders continually refining and improving the process. The community owes a colossal thank you to Minden Rotary and the leaders for taking on this role. The clinic could not run without volunteers. Every one of you that I have met has been kind, cheerful and generous, freely offering your time and passion to the community. Your devotion, organizational talents, and good natures have ensured a positive experience for us all." Councillor Bob Carter on FB

Prior to the current clinics Rotarian Lynda Litwin is shown replenishing Covid screening and consent forms at Molly's Bistro and Bakery (yes - that's Molly)


The forms were used for the original clinic in the Haliburton Medical Centre, they are not required for the clinic starting April 7 in the new arena
However, reviewing the questions on the form will prepare you for your vaccination appointment
