The Rotary Club of Estevan has been a proud supporter of the new Spectra Place events centre that has been under construction in our community.
Rotarians will be busy during the Spectra Place fundraising supper on March 25. We will have 10 or 11 volunteers working at the bar that night, serving drinks to supporters of the new arena. And several Rotarians have been serving on the steering committee for the new arena fundraiser.
The benefit supper will be held on the floor of the new events centre this year. Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke will be the guest speaker. He will be joined by fellow Leaf executive member Dave Nonis, Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Darian Durant and several members of the Trail Smoke Eaters 1961 World Championship hockey team. Maple Leafs broadcaster Joe Bowen will be the master of ceremonies.
Rotary has volunteered at the new arena fundraiser each year since the first one in 2007. We have also purchased the naming rights to three sections at Spectra Place, for a total of $50,000, and many Rotarians have purchased the naming rights to seats inside the venue.
