During Sylvan Lake’s Centennial we’re attempting to quantify the generosity of our community with information and a running tally of donations to various groups and organizations.

We know how giving our community is and we want to emphasize that with this column. Please feel free to add to our list.

Year-to-date total: $277,289.39

• Not included in last week’s listing was money raised by École H. J. Cody High School students and staff during their Sept. 20 Terry Fox Run in support of cancer research. They surpassed their goal, raising $3,786.33. That brings the community’s total to close to over $14,000.

• Sylvan Lake Legion’s Ladies’ Auxiliary donated $3,000 to Bethany Care Foundation towards a $43,700 specialized tub and lift.

• Donations to Sylvan Lake Food Bank during last Thursday’s town-wide blitz brought in a great supply for this well used service.
