Did you know that The Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) has been a strong supporter of The Salvation Army initiatives over the past 30+ years, and that our members devote over 130 hours ringing the bells to help The Salvation Army reach their giving goals each year? Yesterday at The Devonshire Mall, 90-Year-Young WWII RCN Veteran Dorothy Grondin, rang the kettles for The Salvation Army. She wanted to give back to an organization that has helped her in the past and felt that getting into the Christmas spirit and ringing the bells would be the perfect opportunity. Dorothy volunteered alongside Andrea Grimes who was ringing the bells on behalf of The Rotary Club of Windsor (1918). A friend of Rotary, Andrea is the recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and the Sovereign’s Medal in recognition for her volunteer work in support of our Veterans and military families.

"All the wealth in the world cannot help one Indian village, if the people are not taught to help themselves. Our work should be mainly education, both moral and intellectual. Educate the people, so that they may learn to be self-sufficient, frugal. If the poor cannot come for education, education should reach the poor."
