Joan Whyte-Elliott is proud to be the president of the Rotary Club of Fenelon Falls. This club has been serving the Fenelon Falls community since 1944 and currently has 15 members.
One of the projects that the club members are most proud of is the Fenelon Falls splash pad which had its grand opening in May 2018. This was a community led project that was managed by the Rotary Club of Fenelon Falls and had a total cost of $236 000. It was made possible by the fundraising efforts of Fenelon Falls Rotarians as well as the City of Kawartha Lakes and the Kawartha Lakes Community Futures Development Corporations. The splash pad provides a safe, fun and accessible place for Kawartha Lakes residents to cool off. According to some club members, the success of this project can be attributed to the community partnerships and the fundraising efforts of club members. For more information on this project, please contact James Sackston.
One of the ways that the Rotary Club of Fenelon Falls raises funds for projects like the splash pad is through their Classic Car Draw. This year the grand prize is a 1970 Dodge Dart with a 5.7 Hemi engine. The draw will take place on July 1st, 2019 so you still have time to get your tickets!

If you are ever in the Kawartha Lakes area, please consider doing a make-up at the Rotary Club of Fenelon Falls. The club meets at the Fenelon Falls Community Center at 27 Veteran’s Way on Thursdays at 6:45 PM.
