Operation Red Nose begins this Friday

Operation Red Nose begins this Friday in Williams Lake

  • Nov. 28, 2012 11:00 a.m.

If you drink and don’t feel fit to drive, call a relative, a friend, a cab or Operation Red Nose at 250-392-2222.

This is the message that the Rotary Club is extending to the community during the up-coming Operation Red Nose campaign which will be operational each Friday and Saturday evening from Nov. 30 to Dec. 31.

In Canada, this year, an impressive 90-plus host organizations will provide the Operation Red Nose service. Teams of three volunteers will travel our communities’ roads and highways again this year in order to provide a simple and accessible way for their fellow citizens to arrive home safely.  Everyone is invited to volunteer and come and experience the joy of serving their community.

In addition to making roads safer for everyone during the holiday season, Operation Red Nose volunteers allow our community to raise funds which directly support youth organizations and amateur sports in Williams Lake.

KidSport, Williams Lake Gymnastics, Williams Lake Skating Club and Blue Fins will be the recipients of the fundraising efforts this year.

The easiest way to volunteer is to log on to the Operation Red Nose web site at www. operationrednose.com and fill out a form online.  Print the form, sign it and drop it off at the Williams Lake RCMP detachment.

You can also contact the Operation Red Nose co-ordinator Dave Dickson at 250 392-8701 or david.dickson@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. To help carry out this program, Operation Red Nose received support from key loyal partners: the RCMP, Community Policing, media outlets, automotive dealers, Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre and Panago.
