Strawberry Report

Strawberry Report 
The Abbotsford-Sumas Rotary, also known as the Berry Club, begins planning in September to prepare for the following May/June sale. Each year we build upon the success of the previous year to get the berries to our clients as quickly and efficiently as we can.


The Abbotsford pick up site is the busiest of our six pick up locations where we will help hundreds of people pick up thousands of buckets of berries! This requires extensive planning and co-ordination and the collective effort of a great group of Rotarians.

Over the past several years, we have allocated much of the funds raised to building playgrounds in our community for children under the age of 6. Berry Park, Hoon Park, Amblewood Part, Grant Park and Walnut Park all have playgrounds built from this fundraiser. We continue to partner with The City of Abbotsford to place playgrounds in our community and hope to do more playgrounds in coming years.

We wish to thank all of the supporters of our sale who continue to purchase berries from us year after year. We also wish to thank our fellow Rotarians, Yale Interact club members and our community partners who generously donate their time and resources.


It truly is a team effort and we are look forward to continued success in the 2020 sale.
