Service clubs are essential to filling the gaps of community needs but their future is challenging as lifestyles and economic pressures are leading to fewer volunteers. A rotating installation at the North Bay Museum aims to highlight the important role service clubs play throughout 2024 and 2025. Rotary is currently featured for the summer with the Rorab Shrine Club scheduled for the fall. It started with the IODE in April. Providing comments in this video are: Naomi Hehn, curator; Pat Moulson, museum volunteer and IODE member; Joanne Bernier, IODE member of the Manitou Chapter that recently folded; Elaine Burrows, IODE member of the Dr. Herbert A. Bruce Chapter; Heather Stewart, president of IODE Dr. Herbert A Bruce Chapter; Bruce McCulloch, Rorab Shrine Club; and Nat Brunette, Canadian Federation of University Women.
