Grant and Sponsor Presentations



The Rotary of Brantford Sunrise chapter donated the sum of $1,000 towards the replacement cost of 34 benches that were destroyed in a pre-season fire. At a special breakfast meeting, Ron van Pampus (pictured above)attended the cheque presentation ceremony as a guest of Esther Yelle, the corporate sponsor of the tennis club. The funds will be used to offset the deductible on the club’s insurance policy to replace the benches. In appreciation of the donation the Dufferin Club will attach a plaque engraved with “Complements of the Rotary Club of Brantford Sunrise” to each bench. Esther Yelle has graciously offered to cover the cost of the plaques and engraving. On behalf of the Dufferin Club of Brantford many thanks to the Rotary Club of Brantford Sunrise and Scotiabank for their generous contributions.
