I am sending this letter as it is that of a happy time as compared to the doom and gloom that is prominently sent to the editor.
July 1st began a kick-off to get donations for our neighbours to the south who have suffered much due to the floods.
Residents of Sylvan Lake began collecting donations at a July 1st barbecue and it carried on through the month of July by donating bottles at Sylvan Lake Bottle Depot.
Between these two venues a total of $1,167.75 was collected for the Salvation Army to be used for flood victims.
I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all who participated.
It’s a true example of the generosity Sylvan Lakers have.
A special thank you to the staff at the bottle depot for allowing us to inundate them with extra work over the month of July.
Way to go Lakers!
