Hope floats

The Pontoon Boat Raffle fund got a huge jump start on its charitable work over the weekend, raising a whopping $7,000 for the 4-H building fund. The West Rainy River District Lions pledged to donate all sales made during the Emo Fair to support 4-H’s dream of a new food building, and the community responded to the call. The weekend donations are just the beginning; the club hopes to donate even more, but it will depend on ticket sales. There’s still time to get yours, but they’re almost sold out! They can be purchased at local retailers, including Skis Variety, or online at westlions.ca. – Submitted photo
