In association with Delta Assist and other clubs in the South Delta area, The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen delivered over 600 hampers to families and singles in need throughout the Delta area. These hampers contained everything required for the perfect Christmas Dinner. Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, etc., you name it, and it was in there.
 
Our Rotarians met up at Paridon Warehouse to assemble the hampers over the Christmas break, and shortly after delivered them to the families in need. Kathleen Beaton, who led the project said that we do this because "it’s great to be able to give someone a wonderful Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and add to their pantry for the first of the year". The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen donated over $1,000 to the Project, and many volunteer. A huge thank you must also go out to our local schools, Church’s and Kinvillage who also donated food.
On December 3rd, 2017 The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen lit up Tsawwassen's Diefenbaker Park with over 1000 lights. Leading up to the lights, there was Horse Rides, face painting, Ginger Bread decorating, a Popcorn and Hot Chocolate/Coffee station, and even a visit from Santa. South Delta's youth were able to chat with him, and let them know what they wanted for Christmas. A huge thank you to all of our sponsors for making this day a success.

Four Little Free Libraries Come to Tsawwassen
 
On Monday, September 11th the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen and their partners, the Delta School District, Delta Community Literacy Committee and Delta Parks, Recreation and Culture helped to fill one of the new Libraries at Diefenbaker Park with new books.  There are three additional Little Free Library locations at Pebble Hill Park, Grauer Park at South Delta Recreation Centre and Beach Grove Mini Park and all are stocked and ready for use.
 
A few years ago, Rotarian James Latheron approached the School District to help establish a partnership with students at South Delta Secondary School and he worked for many hours alongside teacher Katrina Branden, and her students to build five of these Little Libraries.  Branden was delighted with the process and commented:
 
“As a teacher, not only am I delighted to see the promotion of written and visual literacy, but also the support for construction and design literacy projects.  Giving students more hands-on, community-based projects engages them beyond the walls of the school, and creates important opportunities for our future.  I strongly support and would love to collaborate on, more community-based projects in the future.”
 
Superintendent of the Delta School District, Doug Sheppard, added, “These beautiful lending libraries are not only charming to look at; they embody Delta's commitment to supporting literacy in our communities.  Access to books, and the open sharing of stories and ideas, is a fundamental part of what learning is all about. I am so pleased that our students at South Delta Secondary were able to be a part of the building of these lovely book shelters, and I look forward to seeing our students and readers of all ages out and enjoying these little nooks of knowledge.”
 
The support for community literacy also includes the Delta Community Literacy Committee with a significant donation of books to help stock the libraries.  Ailsa Howard explains that the Committee “has a mission to enhance the literacy and learning in Delta”.
 
Councillors Bruce McDonald and Heather King were joined by Deputy Director of Delta Parks, Recreation and Culture, Todd Stewardson, were also on hand. On behalf of the Corporation of Delta, Mayor Lois Jackson thanked the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen for “enhancing our neighbourhoods with a new opportunity for people to connect and share reading experiences with neighbours and friends of all ages.”
 
Many members of the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen have been hands for the creation, finishing and installation of this project and have donated books but there is a further commitment from Rotarians to be stewards of each these libraries on an ongoing basis.   President Laura Dixon says the project is perfect for the club because it represents the core values of their membership:  community, partnerships and education.  She said, “all we ask of the community is that you come by from time to time drop off a book you think others may enjoy, take a book you would like to read -  it’s that simple!”
