The Rotary Club of Port Hope announced today that the Club has made a donation to Northumberland 89.7 to assist with the purchase of a new broadcasting console. A cheque for $2,000 was presented to Barry Walker, Chair of Northumberland 89.7 FM and Kevin Stuart, Station Manager, by Rotary’s Mandy Yakiwchuk, President-in-Waiting, and Nancy Cooper and Ron Tuttle from the Rotary Trust Fund Committee.
Mr. Walker said “We are extremely grateful to the Rotary Club of Port Hope for this donation. Not only does this bring the total funding to date for the project to within $4,000 of our target, it also makes us proud that Northumberland 89.7 has the confidence of the Rotary Club of Port Hope to continue our work as a major source of news, information and entertainment in Northumberland.”
The donation by Rotary was made possible with funds coming from the Helen Philip Trust Fund.
The broadcast console is a vital part of the studio. Everything you hear on the air coming from our station goes through this console.
