Courtenay Rotary Club on-line auction set for March

The Courtenay Rotary Club is holding its Annual On-Line Auction from March 1 at 9 a.m. to March 31 at 9 p.m. in support of Rotary Trail.

COURTENAY ROTARY CLUB members and volunteers completed Phase One of the Rotary Trail from Fifth Street to the train station on Cumberland Road in Courtenay.

The Courtenay Rotary Club is holding its Annual On-Line Auction from March 1 at 9 a.m. to March 31 at 9 p.m. in support of Rotary Trail.

A portion of the proceeds raised will also go to additional worthy community projects. Everyone is invited to bid online on over 400 select items, services and gift certificates.

“The support and response to building the Rotary Trail from Fifth Street to Eighth Street in 2011 was phenomenal. I’m pleased that we are committed to extending the trail to 17th Street this year,” says Courtenay Rotary president Naomi Carmichael.

“We could not put on these fundraising events without the generosity of the donors to our Main Event On-Line and On-Live Auctions. I personally want to say thank you to all of you on behalf of the Courtenay Rotary Club,” added Art Meyers, auction chair.

Rotary Trail is a hard-surfaced walking and cycling trail that begins at Fifth Street and runs three blocks to the train station at Cumberland Road along the E&N Railway corridor.

The Courtenay Rotary Club worked in conjunction with the City of Courtenay and the Island Corridor Foundation (formerly E&N Rail) on this project. Future plans include the possibility of extending the trail to 30th Street at the south end of the city.

Rotary Trail will be the northern terminus of the Island Corridor Foundation’s trail. They envision a trail system that connects the island communities all the way to Victoria.
