Fundraising continues

Joselyn Snow Memorial Playground moves closer to reality

By Treena Mielke

After a great deal of hard work, dedication and commitment, The Joslyn Snow Memorial Playground is becoming a reality.

The playground committee is, however, still more than $33,000 short of their final goal, although all the playground structures and the sport court are expected to be in place by the end of June.

Fundraising events planned include cash raffle tickets which are available from the town or the school. The draw date is june 27. Odds of winning are great and cash payouts are $3,000, $1,500, $800, $400, $200 and $100!

Another event was spearheaded by Keely Butcher and Kelly McKinlay who organized the Hippy Dayz ball tournament for June 7, 8 and 9 with all proceeds to go to the playground.

Silent auction items are needed for the Irish Cup to be put on by the Gull Lake Golf Course who are generously donating a portion of the proceeds from the auction back to the Joslyn Snow Memorial Project for the second consecutive year. Contact Lane Moore lane.moore@wolfcreek.ab.ca by the end of June about donated items.

In keeping with the fundraising theme, committee members will run the refreshment stand at the Bentley rodeo to be held August 9 and 10.

All proceeds from the Bentley Rodeo Saddle Raffle will be donated to the Joslyn Snow Memorial Project, for the second consecutive year! The winner wins a nice saddle or $1,000 payout. Draw date is August 10 at the rodeo.

And finally, Bentley School and Town of Bentley Community Services are pleased to host Dr. Jody Carrington, on September 26, to speak on the Re-Connection Revolution. Tickets are available at: https://www.eventbrite.ca/o/bentley-school-21662423887. All proceeds from this event will be donated back to the project.

The Joslyn Snow memorial Playground committee is also waiting to hear on a couple of outstanding grant applications.
