A few community groups and organizations came together to raise funds for kids June 5
Chief of Caffine: Ermineskin Fire Department Chief Greg Minde works the drive-thru window at the Ponoka Tim Hortons June 5 as part of Camp Day. Other volunteers that helped throughout the day included Ponoka RCMP, Ponoka Youth Centre and the local scout troop.
Camp Day Collection: Donna Orr, wife of Lacombe-Ponoka MLA Ron Orr, was one of the volunteers working the donation table inside the Ponoka Tim Hortons on June 5 to raise funds during Camp Day. Patrons could make a donation to be eligible for various prizes as well as buy balloons, bracelets, t-shirt, candy and popcorn.
Serving the greater community: The Ermineskin Fire Department showed up at the Ponoka Tim Hortons with six members and two apparatus to help out for two hours during the annual Camp Day fundraising effort. The job was successful in drawing more than $1,000 in donations, not including the as yet to be calculated proceeds from coffee sales.
