The Rotary Club of St. Marys, in partnership with Shred-It, held a Community Shredding Event on Saturday, May 4th. The event helped raise awareness about identity theft and reminded residents of the importance of securely destroying personal documents. Area residents brought over 2,580 lbs of unwanted paper documents which were securely shredded on-site. These securely shredded documents will be recycled into various paper products instead of ending up in the landfill.
Students from St. Marys DCVI helped Rotary with the event and earned a total of 14 volunteer hours. Members of the Rotary Club of St. Marys contributed an additional 45 volunteer hours.
The Rotary Club of St. Marys would like to thank St. Marys DCVI and the Avon-Maitland District School Board for the use of the parking lot at DCVI for the event. Additional thanks to the student volunteers and area residents for supporting the event.

On Monday, May 13, 2024, at 4:00 p.m., members of Council joined representatives from the fundraising committee, Rotary Club of St. Marys, and Saputo Inc. at Rotary All Wheels Park on James Street (180 James St. S) for the Official Opening.

   

In 2022, former Royal Family nanny Jean Rowcliffe partnered with teens Quinn and Sully Bolton to launch a fundraising campaign to revamp the St. Marys Skate Park. Throughout the project, the group secured $100,000 from the Rotary Club of St. Marys, $25,000 from Saputo Inc., and donations from supporters across the globe, totalling $208,443 in funds raised. 

“It is great to see the park being used by riders of all ages, levels of expertise, and talents,” says Stephanie Ische, Director of Community Services. “We want to thank all the donors, including those that chose to remain anonymous, and the Skate Park Steering Committee. Your hard work and generosity have made the Rotary All Wheels Park on James Street inclusive and safe for all.” 

The Skate Park Steering Committee is still actively seeking donations to support the cost of ongoing enhancements to the park, including signage, fencing, lighting, turf restoration and a bench. Members of the public can donate online with a credit card (www.townofstmarys.com/allwheelspark), through online banking, in person at the Municipal Operations Centre (408 James St. S) or by mailing a cheque to the Town.  

 Additional information about the Rotary All Wheels Park on James Street and a full list of donors can be found at www.townofstmarys.com/allwheelspark.
