Minden Rotary in ACTION
Haliburton-Muskoka-Kawartha Children's Water Festival. is an educational initiative supported by Minden Rotary. Approximately 1000 elementary students from the Trillium Lakelands District School (TLDSB) came and “got their hands wet” as they learned about one of our most valuable resources, water.
Therapeutic riding uses horses for the purpose of providing physical, emotional, social and cognitive support to people with a disability. Minden Rotary supports Walkabout Farm, a fully inclusive therapeutic riding, equine assisted learning and youth outreach initiative designated for children and adults with unique considerations, socioeconomic isolation, mental health concerns and those that are abled differently.
Earth Day Road Clean Up!
Minden Rotary annually cleans debris from a portion of Deep Bay Road. This year the cleanup was also the club's contribution to Rotary's environmental project to cleanup the Great Lake's watershed.
Vaccination Clinic
The single largest contribution to the community over 2020 - 2022 has been Minden Rotary's staffing the vaccination clinics. This requires the recruitment, training and support for several 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 three hundred to 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!
Fuel for Warmth is a program offered by the Minden Community Food Centre that has been supported by Minden Rotary. It is inconceivable that families go cold in our community in this day and age, but it happens. This excellent program goes a long way toward eradicating this need.
In recognition of the important role The Minden Food Bank has in our community it has always been a major recipient of support. One of the meaningful programs is the Christmas Hampers which brings Christmas to families that may otherwise be unable to enjoy. No child in our community should go without a gift or go hungry at this special time of year.
As part of the community, Rotary provides support in many ways. Contributing a float to the annual Minden Santa Clause Parade accompanied by dancing Rotarian is one way of giving to the children (young and young at heart) a little seasonal joy.
Minden Rotary is pleased to provide support to 5 Counties for their excellent work with children in our community that are physically disadvantaged.
