A project spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Southampton, in partnership with the Port Elgin Rotary Club, the Port Elgin and District Lions Club, and the new Saugeen Shores Rotary Club, will plan and develop a sustainable fund to replace and maintain the van for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
At a ceremony at 11:00 am on Tuesday, October 12th at the Salvation Army Food Bank,
