Lion President Fred Malott (R) presenting SU501 Mustang Deklan Belanger and his father Matt with a $500 donation for their help with the highway cleanup

The Legal Lions Club, along with members of the SU501 Sturgeon Mustangs Hockey Team, recently conducted a cleanup along No 2 highway south of the Legal Corner. The Lions Club has a contract with the Gov of AB Transportation to clean the highway annually as part of the Adopt A Highway Program. This year, because of a lack of volunteers, the club asked for help from the community. The Mustang hockey team generously donated a couple of hours to help with the cleanup efforts and it was greatly appreciated by the Lions members. A donation was made to the hockey team that will go towards ice costs associated with hockey development programs and rental of ice for their practices. Lion President Fred Malott thanked the Mustangs and their parents for coming out to show support for other organizations and showing their commitment to the community. Some of the players were amazed at the type of garbage that ends up on the side of the road. A great day was had by all. – submitted photo
