Heart and Stroke Fund exceeds fundraising goal

Thank you to all those that were able to step up this year to make it happen

Editor, The Times:

Thank-you Clearwater. We did it!

The Heart and Stroke Clearwater Division set a goal last year to reach $5,000. This year’s total was $5,035.85.

Thank you to all those that were able to step up this year to make it happen. Thank you’s go out to Winnie Nelson, Mary Neathway, Penny Christenson, Marilyn Collison, Vivian Allen, Diane Coughlin, Gloria Petri, Sandra Holmes, Marg Anderson, Dani Noble, Doreen Elliot, Bonnie Ruttan, Leona Nicholas, Madeline DeVooght and Sharon Young.

Thank you to all the businesses that supported the Heart and Stoke this year. Thank you to Home Hardware for promoting the pins and mittens. Thank-you to Buy-Low for supporting our volunteers with a warm and inviting place to canvass. Thank-you to Keith McNeil at the North Thompson Times for promoting the cause and Yevonne Cline for selling the red mittens. Thank you to Bonnie and Jeff at Wells Gray Inn for your tremendous support for the Heart and Stroke volunteers. Your staff at the front desk are wonderful and make my job as team captain so much easier.

I look forward to another year, welcoming new volunteers, having all my volunteers from last year and years past to join us in 2016 for another successful year.

You can log on to Heart and Stroke Foundation for tips and information regarding everything from recipes to research.

Until next year, keep fit and have fun!

Wendy Grimm, coordinator and team captain
