We are close to our goal of 42 trees! Just a few more to go. Would you like to sponsor a tree and decorate it? It is a wonderful team activity for organizations and businesses. If you don’t have time, Rotary will provide designers/decorators to decorate a tree that you sponsor.
AND, if you would like to decorate a sponsored tree, send us a note at email@example.com – we are still looking for a few more designers/decorators. It is lots of fun to do.
We are very excited to have a Lead Sponsor this year – Performance BMW. Their donation is especially important to the Rotary Club of Grimsby. Our goal this year is to surpass last year’s donations to local charities – to make a bigger difference than ever in our local community.
We are proud to support the Special Olympics, Grimsby Lincoln. We are making a difference in the lives of our local athletes:
“It has been close to 10 years that Special Olympics was started in the Grimsby Lincoln area. It began with 5 very young athletes in one sport.
Today we offer 9 different sporting options throughout the year. Over 90 athletes benefit, physically, mentally and socially. Countless hours of volunteering has been provided and the athletes of Grimsby Lincoln have flourished.
The group and the local communities involved have celebrated sending various athletes to many provincial competitions, a few National athletes and one World competition since inception. We are confident with the support our athletes receive from our volunteers, coaches, families, our community and community service clubs such as Rotary, we will no doubt see more world competitions in the very near future.”

We are excited to have tree, raffle and silent auction sponsors coming in! JJs on the Docks Eatery, Casablanca Winery Inn Hotel, Cole’s Florist and Garden Centre, Erion Insurance, Station 1 Coffeehouse, Objects to Desire, and Grimsby Hyundai are sponsoring trees or donating silent auction items.
What a wonderful start to the Fantasy of Trees.
We so appreciate our generous sponsors and contributors who REALLY make the Fantasy of Trees happen.
You make a difference when you purchase a lottery ticket for the trees and raffle, or participate in the Silent Auction. Last year $15,000 was raised and all the proceeds when to our recipient organizations. One of these is Rose Cottage.
West Niagara Palliative Care Services, o/a Rose Cottage Community Hospice provides support services to anyone who has life limiting, palliative care needs or require caregiver support.
“Our twice monthly Drop In Program would not be possible without the support of the Rotary Fantasy of Trees. Thank you for helping us to help others in the West Niagara Community.” ~ Rose Cottage Visiting Volunteer

We are very appreciative of PROforma Broadener & Co. for our new Fantasy of Trees Logo. Thanks so much to Chris and Tim for their support through in-kind services.
We asked Chris what inspired him and what the logo has to say:
“We set out for the logo to express a sense of giving and community. The font choice and colours convey the spirit of the holiday season. Fantasy of Trees brings joy to many people and we hope the new logo does the same.”
Thank you to our executive committee, headed by chair Roger Bradley for a great planning meeting last week. With all of the members’ great ideals it will make the 18th annual Fantasy of Trees one of the best events ever.
Welcome to the start of the Fantasy of Trees 2017 – November 24th – December 10th. We encourage you to become a sponsor, donor, volunteer and participant – this is such a great event that everyone loves. The Rotary Club of Grimsby is dedicated to the community and all the proceeds go to local and Rotary charities. We are pleased to serve our community this way.
