Fundraising has always been a reality for the Recycling Centre.
In past years it was an important part of making sure recycling had the financial resources to continue. As the program has evolved it is not as critical, but still necessary.
Two traditional events are planned for June 27.
The Sixth Annual Voyageur Canoe Challenge will take place on Ross Lake by Stittco at 1:30, or after the Family Canoe event. Teams of six to ten paddle a course in a historic 25 foot Voyageur Canoe. Each team’s time is recorded.
The prize is lots of fun and bragging rights. Last year the Flin Flon School Division took the title from the Denare Beach Yacht and Cattleman’s Association who had held the title since the event began.
The entry fee is $100.00 per team. Teams should have at least 2 members with some experience in a canoe. Most teams have 10 people. The race is about 5 minutes of reasonably strenuous exertion. Paddles and life jackets are provided.
To register a team, call Greg at 204 687 0754.
The Cabar-eh! will end the day with great music. This year Alan Gerber and his daughter Hannah from Montreal will start the show. Their energetic show was a real hit the last time they were in town.
Local talent will be featured in the second half of the evening with the Basic Blues Band. Performers include Jen Hanson, John Bettger, Krazz, Chris Freeman, Brent Lethbridge and friends. Rumour has it there will be dancing.
Tables of 8 are available for $200.00. Call Greg at 204 687 0754 to reserve yours.
The Recycling program greatly appreciates the community support.
