Community Money

Faith Henkel, Manager of St. Mary's Lodge, was happy to accept a cheque of $6,000 from Paul and Jean Frere. Following the closing of the Community Bus Service Club of Trochu & District, it took two years for the Government to finally finish checking the Club's activities and financial affairs and freeing up money left over from the sale of the bus. The Frere's decided since it was from a community venture, made possible by an interest free loan from Hilia Keila, it should be put back into the community in honor of her generosity. They chose the tub room project at St. Mary's Lodge as a proper place that benefits seniors living there.
