Nelson woman wins for smoke alarm safety

Pat Glackin was randomly selected to win passes for two rounds of golf at Granite Pointe golf club.

Several Nelson Star readers dropped off smoke alarms at the newspaper’s office last month. From those who donated, Pat Glackin (centre) was randomly selected to win passes for two rounds of golf at Granite Pointe golf club. Star sales associate Selina Birk (left) and Scott Jeffery of Nelson Fire Rescue presented Glackin with her prize. During August, anyone who drops off a smoke alarm at the Star will be entered to win two rounds of golf at the Balfour Golf Club. The smoke alarms collected are distributed by Nelson Fire Rescue to people who don’t have one in their home.
