Generous donors and free skate

Thank you Tolko and Elks

Dear Editor

On behalf of the RCSCC 347 Avenger Sea Cadets and the Navy League Ashcroft Branch, I would like to extend a very appreciative Thank You to Tolko Ashcroft Treating for their very generous donation of $500. They are holding a free skate day on Oct. 29 from noon to 2 pm at the Drylands Arena. We will be serving hot dogs and drinks on their behalf, free to those attending.

I would also like to show our gratitude to the Cache Creek/Ashcroft Elks #262 who have stepped forward with an amazing donation of $800. Thank you so very much.

We are always open to donations from outside, either personal or business. Monetary donations go a long way to pay for extra trips and opportunities for the Cadets, but we also appreciate anyone who chooses to help by way of volunteering or committing to signing up to become an Officer with the Corps. If you are interested in helping out the Cadets in either way, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Once again, a big Thank You to Tolko Ashcroft Treating and Cache Creek/Ashcroft Elks #262 for their donations and thinking of our youth.

Patty Newman
