All 500 tickets for the event were purchased, and Rotarians raised more than $13,000 to be used for community service projects.

St. Amand said club members depend on the cash draw and other fundraisers to help support the community, including local schools, Making a Difference Food Bank and community needs.

“This year the Rotary Club is focused on ongoing improvements at the Perth-Andover Rotary Park. We are pleased to see the new pavilion is a popular locale for residents and hope to soon make an announcement on the new accessible washroom complex for the park,” she said.

St. Amand said recent improvements to the pavilion include new custom-made wheelchair-accessible picnic benches. The five large benches can seat up to 10 people each.

Pavilion usage is free. Residents are urged to reserve the locale by calling the Perth-Andover Recreation Department at 506-273-4844.
