Helping recreation: ThePonoka Community Market (Debbie Lamey) and the Town of Ponoka (Wes Amendt, right) presented a cheque for $3,346 to Justin Kelly who is with PARCS (Ponoka Arts, Recreation and Cultural Society) recently. The money represents funds collected by the Community Market in November and December 2018. In lieu of rent for the town facilities in which it holds its markets, the Community Market donates all funds from vendor table rentals to the town, which in turn donates them to PARCS to fund future recreation facilities in Ponoka. To date the town and Community Market have donated $9,213 to PARCS through this initiative. Photo submitted
