Community Pulls Together

The community pulled together at the annual United Way Bus Pull last Saturday as teams raised over $20,000 for United Way’s 2019 campaign. In the end, 14 teams pulled for the coveted United Way Community Cup in a highly competitive bus pull that saw the BMO Burglars edge out Farris in the finals. Funds raised here, stay here going towards the 2019/20 Community Fund that supports 1 in 4 vulnerable people in our community.
