$20K in funds for Aldergrove service clubs

Rotary and Lions clubs share proceeds from B.C. community gaming grant program

The Rotary Club of Aldergrove and the Lions Club of Aldergrove are receiving a combined $20,500 in support from the province’s community gaming grant program.

• Lions Club of Aldergrove: $12,000

• Rotary Club of Aldergrove: $8,500

“The funds we receive through the gaming division of the provincial government allow us to help children improve their literacy skills in partnership with local schools,” said Rotary Club of Aldergrove Treasurer Gus Hartl.

“The funds also allow us to participate in much-needed community enhancement projects, making our community a better place to live for all.”

“The money received from the gaming branch will go to humanitarian needs and services in the Aldergrove community,” said Lions Club of Aldergrove treasurer Tom Latter.

“Our assistance includes providing food hampers, eyeglasses and hearing aids to individuals facing challenges. Those families and individuals with challenges are given an opportunity to go to one of the sponsored Lions’ summer camps. We do our best to make pride, satisfaction and a smile our goal. We take seriously our motto: ‘We Serve.’

“I am very pleased Aldergrove’s Rotary Club and Lions Club have received this funding; these organizations add great value to our community through their service,” said Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman.
