Despite the lack of snow, this year’s Snowarama for Easter Seals, held at the Riverside Heights Community Centre on Saturday, February 2, still raised nearly $2,000, according to Leslie Disheau, co-ordinator with Jean MacDougal of the event, now in its 17th year. “It was disappointing the snow disappeared just ahead of the day,” Disheau said, “but the Nation Valley Snowmobile Association, made up of the South Dundas Snowmobile Club, the Winchester Township Snowmobile Club and the Mountain Trailblazers, continues to support us. The funds raised in our area, stay in Dundas to help our kids in need.”
This year the Easter Seal Society set up a website to make it possible for people to pledge on line. As in other years, the pancakes and sausage breakfast served at Snowarama was run by the Brewers R. A. Hockey Club and Keith Robinson.
