Thank you, Jackpot City, for your continued support through our Bingos. We were able to donate funds for 200+ t-shirts for children attending summer camps at the Lambton Centre this summer. We are sure the children are enjoying their experiences!
 
On July 15, the Rotary Club of Sarnia hosted a Breakfast for community leaders focused on Affordable and Supportive Housing.  More than 200 people came, including political leaders and business people, as well as representatives of charities and not-for-profits.  Rotary shared how other communities across Ontario are making new affordable housing available to those who need it, as well as offering support to those most vulnerable.  “It was an amazing event,” said Rotary organizer Heather Martin.  “We are preparing now for the next steps to make affordable and supportive housing a reality in our community.” The Club is grateful to Colonel Tania Lee and the First Hussars of London and Sarnia for helping to organize and host the event.
 
The Rotary Club of Sarnia is hosting a special screening of the film “Safe” by Hamilton-based filmmaker John Butler.
The film showcases several supportive housing communities in southwestern Ontario run by a charitable organization called Indwell. Through interviews with residents, support workers and builders/designers, the film explores a success story that’s giving people hope.
The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about supportive housing options and foster public discussion. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local  leaders including Valerie Colasanti (General Manager, Social Services Division, County of Lambton), Scott Brush (Program Launch Manager for Indwell, Chatham-Kent), Jim Steele (previously Manager of Social Housing, Windsor) and Heather Martin (Wellington Ridge, Sarnia).

What: Film screening “Safe” and panel discussion
When: Wednesday, June 7, 2023
Where: Sarnia Library Theatre
Time: 7.00-9:00 (Doors open 6:30)
Cost: Free. People who can do so are invited to pay $10 or make a donation to  the Rotary Club of Sarnia Charitable Foundation (Affordable Housing Fund). Donations over $50 will receive a Charitable Gift Receipt. Proceeds of the event will go toward Rotary’s Affordable Housing fund, which supports new housing initiatives in Sarnia Lambton.
Viewer warning: the film contains strong language and mature subject matter.
