Mudmen concert benefits Rotary Shelter Box campaign

Canada’s Celtic Rock Warriors, The Mudmen, delivered a lively Saturday’s night’s entertainment for a full house at The Centre. The show was a Rotary Club fundraiser for Shelter Box, a disaster relief program that provides displaced refugees with the essentials in a single kit.
Preceding the show, the crowd heard from Kenora Rotarians Claire and Ron Nosworthy who have deployed overseas with the disaster relief kits and most recently returned from Bangladesh.
