The local branch of the Canadian Cancer Society has had another successful campaign.
The total, to date, is $48,184 from all sources, although the actual door-to-door canvass was down more than $3,000 from last year because several areas were not canvassed.
Special thanks and appreciation to the Beta Sigma Phi sorority for its generous donation of $8,150 from the sale of daffodils during the early April campaign.
The sorority has been selling daffodils now for 30 years.
Also, Nadine Johnson organized the “Curl for Cancer” in March and presented our branch with a cheque for $7,600. Many thanks, Nadine!
The success of the campaign is, as always, dependent upon the faithful canvassers and the generosity of residents, businesses, and organizations, not only in Fort Frances, but also in the surrounding area from Mine Centre and Bear’s Pass in the east to Emo and all the communities in between.
The thanks and appreciation of the Canadian Cancer Society (Fort Frances branch) are extended to all donors and, of course, to the canvassers. We could not do it without your help.
Anyone who was missed during the April campaign may still mail a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society, P.O. Box 444, Fort Frances, Ont., P9A 3M8. A tax receipt will be mailed to you.

for the April Campaign,
