Generosity of Sylvan Lakers again evident

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.

Dear Editor,

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!

Janet Bremner,

Sylvan Lake
