Volunteers from the Rotary Club of Picton presented Shannon Coull, executive director of the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation (PECMHF) and Back the Build Campaign Cabinet members Elizabeth Crombie and Paul Massey with an $11,024 pledge installment toward the club’s $100,000 commitment to the new hospital fundraising campaign. Crombie, Massey and Coull are also Rotarians.

This donation, raised through annual fundraising events held by the club, brings its total amount raised so far to $49,174 for PECMHF’s Back the Build campaign.

“The Rotary Club of Picton’s continued support of the hospital and the community at large is both inspirational and long-standing,” said Coull. “The foundation’s partnership with the Rotary Club of Picton spans more than 20 years. Picton Rotary has contributed over $162,000 which has helped fund essential equipment needed at our County hospital and now ‘Backs the Build’ for our new hospital.”

The Rotary Club of Picton raised this year’s funds through its annual Waterfalls Tour, the Lilac Ride, cash calendar sales and other fundraising activities.

“We are thrilled to resume with in-person events after a two-year hiatus from many of our regular fundraising activities that support worthy causes in the community, including our local hospital,” said Barbara Proctor, president of the Rotary Club of Picton. “We are grateful to everyone who participates in our events whether they ride through the lilacs, bring their families to see the waterfalls, turn the page on our calendar each month, volunteer with us or donate a sponsorship or item for our auctions.”

The procedure room in the ambulatory clinic in the new hospital will be named in recognition of the Rotary Club of Picton’s philanthropic support.

“The work of the PECMHF and Campaign Cabinet would not be possible without philanthropic leaders in the community, and their commitment to making a difference, as the Rotary Club of Picton continues to do,” said Crombie. “The ongoing support from both of our local Rotary Clubs is another excellent example of the collaborative effort underway across Prince Edward County to help get our new, leading edge hospital built.”

Rotary is a global network of business leaders and professionals who pledge to place service to others above self. Picton’s club was established on June 7, 1943 and now has approximately 50 members.
