Appreciation for community's generosity 0
A budding snowboarder’s parent is feeling a sense of appreciation after experiencing the generosity of the Highlands.
Lois Foster, who is the mother of former Red Hawks snowboarder Greg Foster, thanks everyone who contributed more than $350 through the collection jars left in Haliburton, Minden and Carnarvon since the summer.
Her son won the all-provincials last year and competed at the Canada Snowboard Speed Nationals Junior National Championships (for ages15 to 19) and the Senior National Championships at Nikiska, Alberta on April 6 earlier this year.
He will be competing in International Ski Federation competitions this coming year with an eye on making the Olympics.
More money will be needed for training, Foster said. Look for fundraising events in October and November, she adds.
Donations can be made through CIBC, branch 0154, bank 010 account # 76-44930. Cheques can be made to Lois Foster in trust for Greg Foster
Please call Foster for details about donations 705-489-1038.
