Throughout the month of December, you no doubt noticed the Rotary Club of Moose Jaw Wakamow selling Christmas trees in the Moose Jaw Coop parking lot.

Mike Daniel, Fundraising Chair for the Rotary Club, says this year was a very successful one.

"We were able to raise near $10,000 net return for Moose Jaw Wakamow. We did sell out completely this year. We're hoping next year to order a similar amount – possibly a few more - next year."

"The fundraiser has been going on approximately 5 years as the Moose Jaw Wakamow Rotary," says Daniel. "Prior to that it was a partnership with Kiwanis. It's our primary fundraiser at this time and it's one we're looking to do again next year."

Daniel explains what the money raised will be going toward.

"We've got 20 initiatives we support - most of them are local. We've also got 2 international; we support a school in Guatemala, we support an international initiative for the eradication of polio, and there's about 16 or 18 others that we sponsor."

"A fundraiser is only successful with the help of supporters, and we've got supporters such as Moose Jaw Co-op where we set up the stand, Westrum Lumber, also Walker Towing, Regal Electric, and Clark's Supply who help us out. Without those folks it wouldn't be a successful project."
