Galt boys win “Can-o-thon”

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Len­noxville

The

mem­bers of Alexan­der Galt High School’s stu­dent coun­cil have been busy as elves in the past few weeks run­ning a Can-o-thon to col­lect food for the school’s Christ­mas Bas­ket cam­paign. This year, the imag­i­na­tive stu­dent coun­cil turned the an­nual non-per­ish­able food col­lec­tion into a friendly com­pe­ti­tion, pit­ting the boys against the girls.

All the stu­dents were in­vited to the school’s gym, last Tues­day af­ter­noon, for the an­nounce­ment of the win­ners: the boys! “The boys brought in a to­tal of 763 non-per­ish­able food items and the girls brought in 382 items, for a to­tal of 1145,” com­mented Cle­ment Mo­liner-roy, the pres­i­dent of the stu­dent coun­cil. “And that’s only from the stu­dents. We have lots and lots of ‘neu­tral’ cans and we also re­ceive a lot from the school’s Tal­ent Show, where stu­dents had to bring a can to en­ter! The real win­ners of the Can-o-thon are the fam­i­lies in need,” added Cle­ment.
