Our annual Terry Fox Run was held on Thursday, September 28th. A big thank you to Ms. Kayra for organizing this year. As well, a thank you to all of the volunteers who came out to support the run. We had a wonderful turnout. Thank you also to all of the families who generously donated to the Terry Fox Foundation. Together we raised $1004.95 to help support cancer research. This far exceeded previous year’s donations. What a fantastic success!
This year’s Spring Fair was a huge success, raising over $6900 from the Silent Auction alone! The final tally is still to come but a HUGE thanks to all who assisted and attended. This event is not possible without your support and generosity. You are an amazing community.
