Thank you letter from Rotary Club Awards Recipients 


Rotary Club Award 2022 Thank You Note 




June 17, 2022
Dear Donor of the Abbotsford Rotary Club Award,
My name is Celine Chin, one of the recipients of the Abbotsford Rotary Club Award. I am writing this letter to thank you for choosing me to receive this award!
This award will be incredibly helpful with the journey I have ahead studying pharmacy as a CAP student at the University of Waterloo, and your generosity will serve as a reminder that I have people who believe in my dream of making a difference in the community. This goal of mine is one step closer to becoming reality with these funds. I hope to continue getting involved in the community and dedicating myself to being a leader through extracurricular activities!
Thank you again so much for giving me the opportunity to pursue my post-secondary goals.
Celine Chin
