Dear Editor;

Ponoka Family and Community Support Services partnered with other organizations for a “Fall Clean-up Community Service Day,” and what a great success it was! With a team of 14 enthusiastic volunteers from FCSS, Nova Chemicals, Sunny 94, Catholic Social Services and community volunteers, 15 seniors had their yards mowed, raked, weeded and over 100 bags of yard waste was taken to compost. Ponoka Composite High School students contributed amazing baked treats for all the volunteers, and we have received many calls and notes of gratitude from those who were helped. We appreciate the cooperation and collaborative efforts of the many volunteers and organizations that are making a difference in other’s lives. If you or your business would like to be involved with community service, let us know by calling 403-783-4462.
