Rotary Ski-A-Round on February 14th

Rotary Ski-A-Round Supports Camp Quality – February 14th
Each year in February, the Rotary Club of Markdale sponsors a cross country Ski-A-Round 
to raise funds for Camp Quality. There are six Camp Quality sites in Canada. Each has a
one-week camp for children with cancer or who have had cancer. A typical camp will have 
fifty campers. A volunteer is assigned one-on-one with each camper. There is no 
government funding so they rely on private and service club donations for their operation. 
This year Ski-A-Round will also support the Oncology Clinic at the Owen Sound Hospital. 
The Oncology Clinic provides care and support to cancer patients from the time of 
diagnosis through their treatment and follow up visits. Bring your skis (or snowshoes) and 
take County Road 12 East from Markdale, right on County Road 30 and left on the 9th Line 
to # 135091. BBQ and refreshments on site. This year the event takes place on February 
14th at 1:30 pm. 
Contact the Rotary Club of Markdale at 519-986-4516 or Ernie Nicholls at 519-986-2309 
for a pledge sheet.
Pledge sheets are available in the black mailbox at the trailhead. Please support this 
worthwhile cause.
