On a chilly Monday morning in March, several members from the Rotary Club of Arnprior, came with their shovels, picks and hand tools to put up two Grove Fundraising Campaign progress signs (aka the Thermometers). The first Grove Thermometer sign is now located on Madawaska Blvd in front of RONA whilst the second sign went up on Daniel Street at Desjardins Insurance (formerly State Farm Insurance) across from Canadian Tire).

Thanks to the following, Arnprior Regional Health Foundation for providing the supplies, Wayne Croft for the construction of these signs, RONA/Sullivan’s for donating the materials and cement blocks to hold the signs in position and Robert Hughes from Hughes Brittle Printing for the printing of the signs and providing assistance in delivering the structures to the sites. 

The campaign goal of the Arnprior District Hospital is to raise $5 million towards the Grove Nursing Home of which $4 million is needed to help build the new Home and $1 million for the purchase of new hospital medical equipment.
