Bottle drive a success
Ecole Georges H. Primeau Middle School Principal Allan Menduk was singing his student’s praises last week. “We are very proud to report that the students raised $3,257.05 in their bottle collection drive over the past week,” he told Morinville News. The funds were raised to support those affected by the Fort McMurray wildfire.
