Rotary Bursary Endowment Fund Donation Feb 2012

At the  usual Monday afternoon Rotary  luncheon an unusual announcement was made by the Rotary Bursary Endowment Fund’s chairman, Ken Little.    An anonymous donor had provided the Rotary Bursary Endowment fund a cheque in the amount of  $100,000.00.   The announcement was received by a standing ovation of the club members.   The chairman noted this donation would provide for over $5,000.00 each year to be given in bursaries to needy students wanting to extend their studies, providing those studies lead to a degree, diploma or certificate.   The bursaries are also available to adults wishing to upgrade their skills.   Ken Little said a donation that did not expect any recognition of the donor, but given solely on the intent of the donor to support a cause of interest to them was  a tremendous expression of one’s generosity and should be applauded by all.
