Rotary Winterama has been extended to March 21....the last day of winter!!!!
With the ongoing COVID situation and the new timing for school spring break, we’ve decided to extend Winterama
until March 21…the last day of winter!!!! Besides, Bearama saw its shadow (https://youtu.be/QAdjjyn9_zw) so
Winterama can’t be over yet!!!
Winterama is a FUN AND FUNDRAISING PROJECT promoted by the Rotary Clubs of
Hepworth–Shallow Lake, Port Elgin, Southampton, & Tara held in February each year for the benefit of local schools and Youth Programs in Grey and Bruce Counties.
Prior to COVID 19, individual participants and groups solicit cash pledges of support for their involvement in ice-skating, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, curling, and snowmobiling. This year we are re-imaging our event into a "Virtual Winter Fun Event".
Net proceeds are split between the participating schools and the participating Rotary Clubs as follows:
Over $525,000 has been distributed back to local schools and the community in the past 18 years.
To support an individual student or youth group member, contact that student / youth group member for their personal Winterama fundraising page link.

…..a Proud Supporter for Over 40 Years!!!
Bruno Rudolph will be turning 84 this year….but you would
never know it!!! Bruno has been a Rotarian for many years. He’s also a multiple Rotary Paul Harris Award recipient recognizing significant contribution to the community. Despite a recent painful back, Bruno was determined to get out to support
Winterama again this year. He first became interested in
supporting the annual Winterama program (formerly Easter Seal Snowarama) back in the early 1980’s when his daughter was born with a brittle bone disease ….he’s been involved ever since and has always done it “For the Kids”.

A huge thank you to Bruno for his many years of contribution to Winterama. He’s an inspiration to us all….and in so many ways!!!!
