The LVR Recreational Leadership classes held its first Christmas fundraiser in early December. The event was initiated by Grade 12 Leadership student Taryn Scarff. The students would like to thank all the members of the community that supported this event as we managed to raise $1,953. The leadership class presented Nelson Community Services with a cheque for $1,000 and they bought clothes, toys, and blankets for the Nelson Transition House. They were also able to buy presents for seven people from the wish tree at Kootenai Moon.
