April 2, 2013 meeting. 

Sincere thanks to our president-elect Cheryl for arranging to have Pat Mouland speak to us.  Pat teaches the students in Grades 2 and 3 at Nechako Elementary School.  Her students have been fundraising for the purchase of a TrailRider (see picture).  ImageThe TrailRider will allow a person unable to walk long distances to get outside and enjoy time with their friends.

The good news is the students have reached their goal!  The students will also make it available for community use.  The Lions Club was the first to donate with $7000.00, sufficient funds to meet their goal.  Still dollars kept coming in, resulting in a grand total of $16,000.  The additional fund will be set aside in an endowment fund.
