Cancer drive means more than money

Stanstead Journal - - EDITORIAL LETTERS COLUMNS COMMENTS - Ma­gog

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.

Mi­randa El­ston Gov­ern­ing Board Chair

Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary School
