In their first year of existence, the Rotary club of Saskatoon assisted the Y.M.C.A. by soliciting public donations, to the tune of $6,400, for the Y's Red Triangle Fund (roughly equivalent to  $80,000 in today's dollars).


The fund enabled the Y.M.C.A. to support Canada 's fighting men, both at home and abroad, by providing canteen meals and accomodation.
