Smile Cookie campaign: Tim Horton’s Ponoka presented a cheque for $5,236 to the Ponoka Youth Centre (PYC) on Nov. 5 — the proceeds of their one-week Smile Cookie campaign which was held in mid-September. 100 per cent of the proceeds of the campaign went to PYC. Over 5,000 $1 cookies were sold, with some cash donations as well. The success of the campaign shows the town really cares, says Bob Podritske, Tim Hortons franchisee with wife Carol. The funds will be used for youth programming. L-R: Wayne Marsden, manager, Megan Beagley, supervisor, Beth Reitz, executive director of Ponoka Youth Centre and Podritske. (Emily Jaycox/Ponoka News)
