Join Rotarian Ben McCarl for another virtual paint night on Sunday evening, March 21, 2021 at 6pm.
It's open to all, free to attend, and we suggest saying thank you to Paint Night volunteers by donating to the Integrated Youth Services Network (IYSN) to help local youth cope with tough times. Donate any amount through our Rotary Club of Guelph site on Canada Helps and designate "2021 Paint Night". 
Participants will supply their own materials (see list below) to paint this charming giraffe which is 'Dreaming Of Spring'. 
Space is limited, so register early.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Register at
