More then $ 106 000 from Canex
A check for over $ 106 000 was delivered to the Bagotville Base Fund on September 19th, thanks to the Canex and SISIP as part of the program that sees their profits turned over to the military communities. This paycheck is intended to support the morale and well- being of the members of the Bagotville community and is the largest amount ever paid to Bagotville to date. The donation is part of the profits that are raised at the various facilities in Canada, which are then distributed accordingly. The amount donated by Canex is paid into the Base Fund, which is used to con- duct various activities and to provide direct services to members and their families. The Base Fund for Member Services and the Base Charity Fund are not to be confused; they are two separate funds, with the Base Fund benefitting members and the Base Charity Fund supporting charitable organizations in the region. The Base Fund provides, among other things, free access to sports facilities for members and their families, funding for the Outdoor Program, offering discounts to military personnel and their families in various tourist locations in the region and also supports the social activities of the units.
