Cancer drive means more than money
AMagogman could not have said it better: “ The Fondation Québecoise du Cancer hostel is the best place for comfortable stays when I get my chemo and radio therapy,” said Mr. Fontaine.
A four and a half million dollar provincial goal needs the $350,000 part from the Townships region and Robert Doiron of Magog Concept Chrysler, in charge of the corporate fund raising section, wants local business to contribute at least $35,000. “This year, the Fondation has started to offer kinesiology services at home in the region. We need the support of all to bring this and other services to our population. “ You can give online at fqc. qc.ca or by calling (819) 822-2125.
As we approach the end of another school year the students, teachers, governing board and PPO of Sunnyside Elementary School would like to give thanks to our community for their continued support in fundraising and donations. The following areas have benefitted from your generosity; class trips, cafeteria, new sound system and playground improvements.
We would like to thank the town for the trees that will be planted to provide more shade for the children on the playground. This is part of the first year plan in our five year plan to improve the playground to better suit our students. Another part of the first year plan is to re-do the asphalt and have games painted on it such as four square and hop scotch. We are working on several grants for our playground improvements but seeing as it takes a considerable amount of time between applying for and receiving the grants your donations and support in fundraising are greatly appreciated.
Thank you to everyone who supported the hot lunch program and the cafeteria over the years. The decision to close the cafeteria was not one made overnight nor was it an easy one.
Thank you to the volunteers who helped with the yummy breakfasts from the breakfast program.
