2019 Projects and Events
2019 ongoing: The Rotary Club of Blind River is in the process of developing a welcome package that will be distributed to newcomers to the Blind River area by Rotary members. We are gathering a collection of information, offers, and items that introduce newcomers to the many amenities and services Blind River has to offer. Our goal is to start distribution later this spring. The website (www.welcomeblindriver.ca) will be expanded as the process continues.
