Full house for dart tournament
Marilyn McComb’s 14th annual “Come Shoot for a Cure” dart tournament was another resounding success, raising $2,473, and counting, for the Canadian Cancer Society’s breast cancer research. “I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Everything went smoothly and we were able to raise $681 just with the auction,” commented Mrs. McComb.
A total of forty-two doubles teams took part in the tournament which was held at the Stanstead Legion Hall. “We served different kinds of sandwiches instead of hot dogs and hamburgers this time during the tournament, because the hotdogs and hamburgers are too expensive now to buy. But everyone seemed to like the sandwiches,” said Marilyn. A raffle was held and plenty of door prizes were won by the dart players.
Winners of the tournament were Travis Fequet and Cheryl Burnham, second place went to Fred and Judy Bryant, and third place went to Susan Roberge and Marvin McClure.
Asked what makes people so supportive of her tournament every year, Mrs. McComb answered: “There was not one person in the Legion who didn’t know someone with cancer. Even when people can’t come to the tournament, many of them will send their donations in. We even saw a lot of new faces at the tournament this year.”
