Dr. Bob Wright's Speech - 
What a wonderful day for this very important event. I am Bob Wright Co-president of the Rotary Club of Fergus Elora
It was more than 4 years ago that members of the Rotary Club of Fergus-Elora met with Drs Sarah Gower and Alan Simpson to share in their goal to build a hospice facility in Centre Wellington.
During Past President Rob Galloway's year as president, the Rotary Club members approved that the Club's highest long term priority should be the financial support to help build a Hospice facility in the community.
During Past President Leanne Iravani 2 years as president, Rotary members and the Hospice committee kept this priority moving forward throughout the difficult times brought on by the pandemic.
Today Co-president Norm Manning and myself have the pleasure and honour to announce that the Rotary Club of Fergus Elora is committing to support this project by pledging $500,000 towards the capital campaign.   This sum will be paid over the next 10 years. We will formalize this pledge by signing an agreement with Aboyne Rural Hospice and by presenting them with the first $10,000 to kick start this project.
Congratulations to Dr. Sarah Gower and Allan Simpson for their leadership and to all of the medical professionals in our community who have recognized the need for this facility and for bringing us through the last difficult 30 months.
