In October, CCRC presented Nature Conservancy Canada with a cheque for $6000 towards the cost of saving a rare forest and protecting the water supply of saving a rare forest. CCRC recognizes the importance of having an adequate and consistent water supply for the people of Riverside-Albert, and the vital role a water supply plays in economic development of the area.
CCRC has awarded bursaries and sponsorships for community events and people including Shepody Days Flea Market and Kayak Races, BACH golf tournament, RCS Memorial Garden, White Hills Pony Club and more.
The annual Christmas market is held at the historic Riverside Consolidated School on Dec. 2nd, 9am to 4pm. More than 40 tables will be filled with baking, crafts, home businesses, charitable organizations and more; all vendors are your neighbours from our county. No admission fee (but a donation to the Food Bank of non-perishable food is appreciated). Breakfast and lunch are served on site. You will surely find something for everyone on your list!
Many projects are on the horizon. Please feel free to attend our monthly meeting and perhaps consider joining us as a volunteer or board member. Call Barb Gebuhr (882-2573) for details or visit CCRC on Facebook. Please join us for the next Chase the Ace. Congratulations, Dana, and thanks to everyone!
