SUPPORTING FRIENDS OF ST-JOSEPH – Several volunteers served a spaghetti supper at the Pontiac Lions Club in Campbell's Bay, April 23, to raise funds for a sprinkler system for the Friend's of St. Joseph Manor. Many donations were also collected before the event, for a total of $2,900.
The sprinkler system, now required by law, is being installed the week of April 24 and will cost about $300,000; the Manor will need to cover about $150,000. Funds will be borrowed, but fundraising will continue to take place for the project. From left: Volunteers Lisa Coles, Sara Knox, Charleen Moore and her daughter Lucia, and Margaret-Ann Mousseau.


ANNUAL EARTH DAY CLEAN-UP ­­– Over 45 volunteers helped clean over 90km of roadsides throughout Ile-du-Grand-Calumet during the municipality's second annual Earth Day clean-up, April 22. The event was organized by the Calumet Island Green Committee. After a full morning of collecting trash, everyone was invited to the RA Hall for free hot dogs and drinks supplied by the Green Committee. “A lot of work and organizing goes into making this day happen, but the support of this community makes it run smoothly. Keeping the town clean is important to us,” said Green Committee President Tyler LaSalle. There were also several draws for prizes donated by local businesses.
