The Quota Club of Weyburn has made a donation of $10,066 to the Weyburn & District Hospital Foundation in honour of founding club member, Isabelle Butters. She was a dedicated member of the Quota Club for 66 years.
Butters served on City Council for 12 years, and was Weyburn’s first elected female mayor. Her career began at Weyburn Co-op as a secretary, and then as the General Manager.
She also volunteered with many organizations, such as Rebekahs, Grace United Church, Weyburn Chamber of Commerce, Weyburn Public Library, Weyburn & District United Appeal, Weyburn Special Care Homes, Heart & Stroke Foundation, and Saskatchewan Centre of the Arts to name a few.
She received the Saskatchewan Order of Merit and the Order of Canada in addition to awards from the various organizations she served on both provincial and national levels.
Butters served as a member of the Weyburn Union Hospital Board for many years, and took a great interest in Weyburn getting a new hospital. The Quota Club felt this was the most appropriate donation to make in her memory.
"The Foundation is very thankful to Quota Club of Weyburn for their tremendous donation in memory of Isabelle Butters - a great founder, member, and advocate of Weyburn and area for many, many years.” reflected Board Chair Jeff Hayward.
The Quota Club said in a release that with this donation Butters continues to serve.
