Saturday was also a night to celebrate Rotary’s contribution to the NISS climbing wall

Thousands of dollars were raised Saturday night for the Rotary Trail in Port McNeill at the club’s annual Spring Fling dinner and auction.

Last year’s event raised $13,000 for the impressive climbing wall at North Island Senior Secondary, which young and old got to try out Saturday at NISS.
