Thanks to our corporate sponsors, Adam Busscher at Home Hardware, Jamie Yeo at Foodland, and Chad Camp at the County Farm Centre for allowing us to set up our sales booth on their premises in November and December as well as individual sales of our calendar.

Special mention to Bob Bird and Frank Wright (including his business associates: Williamson Insurance, Mayhew Jewellery, Book Store, Picton Harbour Inn, Cherry Valley Store, and County Farm Centre) for stellar performances in individual sales.

QHC News Release
Rotary Club of Picton ‘Chips in’ to Back the Build
 

PICTON, December 17, 2021 – A local service club continues to support the construction of Prince Edward County’s new hospital.
Volunteers from the Rotary Club of Picton teed up their support again this year and presented members of the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation with a $5,000 pledge installment towards their $100,000 commitment to the new hospital fundraising campaign.

This donation, raised through the Rotary Club of Picton’s 32nd annual golf tournament held on August 20, 2021, brings the total amount raised by the Club to $27,804 for the new hospital campaign.
 
“The club’s impressive support of the hospital is both longstanding and unwavering,” said Shannon Coull, executive director of the PECMH Foundation and Picton Rotarian. “Rotary’s support of our hospital spans more than 19 years of generous donations from the membership. The club has contributed over $142,000 which has helped fund essential equipment needed at our County hospital. Rotary’s generosity has enabled the hospital to make great strides in improving local health care delivery for patients. Their commitment to helping Back the Build reinforces the club’s legacy of supporting the hospital, and for that, we are so grateful.”
A room in the new Quinte Health Care Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital will be named in recognition of the Rotary Club of Picton’s philanthropic support.
 
The Rotary Club of Picton’s 32nd annual golf tournament saw 72 golfers tee off at the Picton Golf and Country Club. The event raised $20,000 for projects in the community. The golf committee decided to donate 25 per cent of the proceeds to Back the Build. 
 
“We believe a strong community makes a hospital greater, and a great hospital makes a community stronger,” said Dan Wight, president of the Rotary Club of Picton. “We are grateful to everyone who participated in this year’s tournament whether they golfed with us, volunteered with us or donated a sponsorship or item for our auction.”
 
“The work of the Foundation and Campaign Cabinet would not be possible without our partners in the community and their commitment to making a positive difference, like the Rotary Club of Picton continues to do,” said Dennis Darby, Back the Build campaign cabinet co-chair.  “It is by coming together as a community that we will realize our vision of a new hospital in The County. This donation from Rotary is another excellent example of the team effort underway across Prince Edward County to help get this hospital built.”
Rotary is a global network of business leaders and professionals who place service to others above self. 
 
The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation is a charitable organization whose mission is to raise money to advance health care for the patients of the hospital and the people of Prince Edward County.
