4-H member chips in for fight against breast cancer

Cancer is a devastating disease and chances are that each person in this community will, at sometime in their life, suffer the loss of a loved one from cancer. That is why Amy Mayner chose to do a 4-H senior project that will raise money to fight breast cancer.

Cancer is a devastating disease and chances are that each person in this community will, at sometime in their life, suffer the loss of a loved one from cancer. That is why Amy Mayner chose to do a 4-H senior project that will raise money to fight breast cancer. Amy, with the support of her 4-H club, will hold a community pancake breakfast called, The Power of Pink. The breakfast will be held on Sunday, May 25 from 9 a.m. to noon at Pas-Ka-Poo Park in Rimbey. The cost will be $6 per plate. Children six and under will eat free. The proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Prairies/ NWT region.

Amy would like to thank the Bluffton West 4-H Beef and Sheep Club for making this project possible by providing help with the cooking and cleanup. She also appreciates the support she has received from family and friends, as well as the community businesses that have generously agreed to donate supplies and door prizes. A complete list of donors will appear in a later issue of the Rimbey Review.

Seventeen years of living near Bluffton has taught Amy about the benefits of growing up in a close community. Rimbey and the surrounding area have always been very supportive of the 4-H program and its members. Please help in the fight against breast cancer by attending the pancake breakfast and showing your support by wearing pink.
