COMMUNITY
Making a difference in our backyards
 
Community Service projects are local initiatives, activities, and events that Trenton Rotarians engage in to enhance the lives of those around us. Together we're making a difference in our community!
 
 

Our 2021-2022 Community Service Directors,            Chris Foreman and Wendy Warner

Born and raised in Trenton, Ontario.  Chris graduated from the Humber College Funeral Service Education Program in 1998.  He is married to my wife Rebecca "Bex" Foreman and they share a beautiful daughter Charlotte.

Chris has volunteered for several organizations such as Community Care in Northumberland,  V.O.N. in Hastings and Northumberland.  As a volunteer for these two organizations, Chris was responsible for delivering Meals on Wheels for those less fortunate and unable to get around.  Chris was a past board member for the Mt. Evergreen Cemetery Board before it was turned over to the City of Quinte West.  Chris is also a past Vice President for the Brighton and Area Chamber of Commerce.

Chris has been fortunate enough to partake in assisting in the coordination and partaking in the Holy Trinity Greek Golf Classic in Belleville that takes place every year around Father's Day.  He is a former member of the Rotary Clubs of Brighton and Campbellford. 

Chris is currently employed at the Rushnell Funeral Centre in Trenton as a Licensed Funeral Director serving the community in a wide range of services such as Funeral Arranger, Pre-Planning Director, and Embalmer.
