Baking for a cause
Miss. Keogh’s Morinville Public Elementary School Grade 1 class held a bake sale to raise money for SCARS( Second Chance Animal Rescue) Jan. 22. The students became interested in this project when a student brought his SCARS dog into class for show and share. Since then the project has taken off with a parent presentation, letter written by the students to ask for permission to hold the bake sale, intercom announcements, and student made posters. The students sold cookies, tarts and other baked goods for .25 an item. The initiative resulted in $224.10 being raised for SCARS, monies that will be sent as soon as the cheque is cut.

A fishing they did go

The YNC was formed last September and the group has registered as well as drop-in members. The group, designed for youth and families who like to have fun learning about nature, has been active since that time with a variety of activities. The naturalists were joined by the Girl Guides for Saturday’s fishing outing.
