Full Text

Dear editor, Although all the figures are not in yet, I can tell that this year's April campaign for the Canadian Cancer Society will be very successful. The Acton branch would like to give a huge thank you to all the zone captains, captains and canvassers for making this possible. To all of you who were new canvassers this year, I hope the experience was a positive one. To those who are part of the "veteran army" thank you for saying yes when called upon. There are many deserving charities that are asking for donations all year long but obviously the Canadian Cancer Society is important to many of our residents and by knocking on their doors you gave them the opportunity to give. One of our major goals this year was to canvass the new subdivision behind Sobeys. All but four routes were covered and it was a very successful venture. It is a huge subdivision and our new residents were very generous. Hopefully a few more residents will volunteer next year. The Honeyfield subdivision had an exceptional second year and the donations almost tripled from last year. We are so fortunate to have the coverage and support The Independent and Free Press gives us. You gave us a wonderful spread and always make yourselves available to cover our endeavours. We are very grateful. Acton, you have shown us time and again that you believe that together "we can make cancer history". Your generosity will indeed make a difference. Liz Bailey, Campaign chair, Acton branch Canadian Cancer Society
