Port Hardy and Port McNeill Rotary Clubs joined forces once again to bring the annual Rotary Radio Auction to the North Island last weekend.

PORT HARDY—Hundreds of items went under the hammer last weekend as the Port Hardy and Port McNeill Rotary Clubs joined forces once again to bring the annual Rotary Radio Auction to the North Island.
