Nine-year-old Ashcroft resident Michaela Aie has been selling iced tea in front of her home on Elm Street to raise funds for the Lytton relief effort.

Her family has deep roots in the community, and the funds will go to a friend who is an Elder with the Siska band, and who is helping out with an evacuation centre there.

Many people stopped by for a cold glass of iced tea, including local RCMP, ambulance paramedics, and the entire Ashcroft Volunteer Fire Department, while others sent funds electronically and enjoyed a ‘virtual’ glass of iced tea. Congratulations to Michaela and her team of helpers!
