The Grenfell Foundation hosts Heritage Day on July 8th in St. Anthony
The Grenfell Foundation hosts the annual Heritage Day fundraiser to purchase priority medical equipment for Labrador Grenfell Health south chapter. I encourage all residents and visitors to drop by St. Anthony’s Polar Centre on Tuesday, July 8th.
Last year’s activities was a huge success. I enjoyed watching the old-fashioned square dancing, playing games of chance and enjoying all sorts of fish and barbecued dishes.
The Teddy Bears picnic also kicks off in the afternoon, with many kids games put off by volunteers at the Boys and Girls club. Many other organizations are represented with booths set-up. It was a pleasure to bring greetings at last year’s event as the Member of the House of Assembly for the District and volunteer.
The Grenfell Foundation was able to purchase over $200,000 worth of priority equipment, with assistance from $150,000 donation from St. Anthony Basin Resources Inc. This year the goal has been set to over $100,000 to purchase a number of pieces of equipment that will be distributed at a number of facilities including the John M. Gray Senior’s Residence.
If you can drop by and have an afternoon and evening of fun, while supporting the health care needs of the region.Live Rural NL – Christopher Mitchelmore The Straits-White Bay North
