Students in the Hussar area south and west of Drumheller will reap the benefits of a fundraiser held on Monday in Drumheller.
Staff at the local Chinook Financial branch hosted a bake sale to help fund a scholarship created to honour a Hussar teen who died in a highway crash earlier this month.
"Terri Armstrong has always been a part of our Credit Union family," explained Drumheller branch manager Patsy Stokalko. "To show our love and support for her and her family, the funds will be going to the Emma Armstrong Memorial Fund that has been established in her honour."
"We had four tables altogether," reported Stokalko. "There was an incredible effort by Hussar, Hanna and Drumheller branch staff and some friends also donated."
On top of the home baked goodies, there was a beautifully decorated cake that was raffled off to raise a little more.
"That was donated by one of Amanda Drouin's friends; I believe her name was Michelle," recalled Stokalko. "That was also raffled off and it was won by a lady out in Hussar."
The total raised though Monday's Chinook Financial bake sale was $1,218. If you'd like to add to it, donations may be made to the Emma Armstrong Memorial Scholarship Fund in care of the Hussar Branch of Chinook Financial, P.O. Box 40, Hussar, Alta., T0J 1S0.
