Serving hot dogs and hamburgers during a fundraiser for Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart program, May 25 were Dan Hiscox, Tanya Adams, Joy Banks, Dawn Nelson, store owner Paul Ventura, Jordyn Hiscox (kneeling), Deb Hiscox and Justin Hiscox.

The event was in celebration of Jumpstart’s May Red Ball campaign, which, through the month of May, encourages customers to donate $2 in exchange for a red ball — a national symbol for child’s play. Money raised for Jumpstart is used to help those local kids who couldn’t normally get involved participate in organized sport.

The barbecue and sale of hanging baskets raised $753.

“Considering the weather that was pretty good,” said Ventura.

Another Jumpstart fundraiser will take place during the Drive-In movie June 14 when snacks and refreshments will be sold. The show, The Goonies, is part of Sylvan Lake’s Centennial celebrations.
