INGERSOLL - Local Ingersoll Desjardins agent Ann Lofthouse presented a cheque for $4,000 to the Rotary Club of Ingersoll.
President of the Rotary Club and Ingersoll Mayor Ted Comiskey was on hand to receive the money. The money is part of the Desjardins GoodSpark Community Grants Program. It will be used to support free rotary club programs such as the Rotary Rink Mates, Christmas Parade, Easter Egg Hunt, Kids Fishing Derby and many youth scholarships.
Lofthouse says she was thrilled to present the Club with this money.
"I was honoured to help select and contribute to the grant provided to The Rotary club of Ingersoll. The GoodSpark Community Grants aim to ‘spark good’ by giving a helping hand to those who need it most. This organization plays a vital role in our community and Desjardins is proud to help support their good work."
