Fundrais­ing Car­bon stu­dents douse prin­ci­pal

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN -

The top two fundrais­ers for Car­bon School’s Terry Fox Run this year, Mitchell Nien­aber and Holly Pe­tersen, earned the right to dump buck­ets of cold wa­ter on as­so­ciate prin­ci­pal Marci Steen on Oc­to­ber 25. Af­ter 24 years of fundrais­ing, the school passed $50,000 raised in sup­port of cancer re­search.

Ro­tary is a vol­un­teer or­ga­ni­za­tion of 1.2 mil­lion busi­ness and pro­fes­sional lead­ers united world­wide in more than 200 coun­tries. For more in­for­ma­tion about the Ro­tary Club of Drumheller go to www.drumheller­ro­tary.com

Thanks to com­mu­nity sup­port, Ro­tary can sup­port so many projects for all to en­joy. If you’ve driven by Ro­tary Park in re­cent days, you’ll have no­ticed trees be­ing planted. Tens-of-thou­sands en­joy the park each year. How­ever, there was one con­stant sug­ges­tion that more shade would be de­sir­able. So, the club de­cided to in­stall th­ese trees for the fu­ture com­fort and en­joy­ment of mom, dad and the kids.

It’s truly a once-in-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence. The club is as­sist­ing 16 lo­cal Sea Cadets to par­tic­i­pate in the 75th an­niver­sary of D-Day cel­e­bra­tions. Imag­ine hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to trace the steps of our brave sol­diers on June 6, 2019. For the real young tykes, the club is pro­vid­ing fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance for In­door Fam­ily Play this win­ter.
