Mem­phrem­a­gog Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion Hit and Miss

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Staff Ma­gog

Inthe strange world of numbers, they can lie. And in this year’s re­sult of the sec­ond an­nual MRC wide fundraiser of the Mem­phrem­a­gog Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion, they do. Way un­der last year’s re­sult at $86.394.73, it does not re­flect that the Town of Ma­gog cut its con­tri­bu­tion by $15,000 and that, last year, two big con­tri­bu­tions to­tal­ing over $12,000 were given.

While Ma­gog’s con­tri­bu­tion was still $10,000, the Town of Stanstead, who is the main ben­e­fi­ciary along with Man­sonville, did not con­trib­ute. Pri­vate cit­i­zens in Stanstead raised $3,249.42. Man­sonville, of­fi­cially Pot­ton, gave a thou­sand dol­lars of mu­nic­i­pal funds. In the real ‘miss’ cat­e­gory, nei­ther Hat­ley nor Que­bec’s own theoc­racy, Sain­tBenoît-du-lac, raised any money, the lat­ter’s goal be­ing ninety-six dol­lars. East­man was the real giver at 143% over their ob­jec­tive, rais­ing over nine thou­sand dol­lars, seven of which came from the mu­nic­i­pal­ity cof­fers.
