Wildfires in the Canadian province of Alberta continue to grow furiously leaving in their wake thousands of burned homes, cars and communities. Over 1,000 firefighters are working to bring the blaze under control with the help of helicopters and air tankers. Rotarian Richard McCleery with the Hillsborough Club has extended family living in Canada who are professional fire fighters working to extinguish the blaze.
Rotarians in District 5370 have established a fund to assist in the rebuilding of the city of Fort McMurray after the blaze has been controlled. Our District is collecting contributions from concerned Rotarians and will send a single check on behalf of our District.
Thanks to iPDG Matthew Kane and PDG Rick Carnagua for coordinating this effort.
