Late-season flurry fills Friendship Centre donation requirements

There was a lot going on at the Slave Lake Native Friendship Centre in the week before Christmas. We were only able to capture a small sample of it, which we present here, photographically.

The Town of Slave Lake Peace Officers got into the act, delivering food hampers for the Friendship Centre.
Lakeside Nursery School teamed up with the Slave Lake Native Friendship Centre to ensure that every Christmas hamper received a bundle of fresh farm vegetables this Christmas. Through donations from community members, they had 164 bundles of potatoes, onions and carrots. Lakeside Nursery board members then stepped up and donated the remaining bundles. A total of 190 bundles of vegetables were being donated to the SLNFC on Dec. 19. Pictured are Randah Mouallem, representing Lakeside Nursery School, and Barb Courtorielle of the Friendship Centre.
Santa Claus showed up at the Friendship Centre on Dec. 18 with a couple of helpers from the pulp mill with a donation of toys for Santas Anonymous. Pictured with Friendship Centre staff members are Kate Kent and Haley Forseth of the pulp mill’s rec club.
Also helping out with the delivery of food hampers for the Friendship Centre was Slave Lake EMS staff, using some of their amublances.

Roland Michener School teamed up with CJ Schurter School again this past holiday season to help out the food bank at the Friendship Centre by filling a bus with donations.
