Layna Palacheck of Friends of PES Fundraising Society (centre right) receives a cheque for $1596.07 from Natalie Reglin, owner/operator of Boston Pizza in Ponoka to be spent for the construction of the new playground for the Ponoka Elementary School students at their new facility, the former Diamond Willow School.

The contribution comes under Boston Pizza’s Operation Education program, which allows registered schools to collect and submit receipts from purchases at BP restaurants throughout northern Alberta to receive five per cent of the pre-tax sum of the receipts back as a donation from the restaurant chain.
