This year’s team is already started in raising funds for the week of kid’s camp at Campamento el Faro in March. You can support the camp three ways. By:
1. Buying road salt. They are selling conventional salt in 10kg and 20kg bags, and Enviro-salt in 10kg bags. Delivery is on Saturday, December 10th.
Contact Jeremy or a member of the Ecuador team to place your order.

2. Returning your refundable cans and bottles to the recycling depot in
Windsor Junction and donating your refund to the Ecuador Team account.

3. Buying a $10 peeler card… ($5 goes to the camp). The peeler cards contain
BOGO deals for a number of restaurants, Bowlarama, Putting Edge, Magic
Mountain, Kartbahn, etc. For more info see Rachel or Rebekah Ching, Chris
Atwater, Heidi Moore, or Adam Ward.

By now we are all aware of the devastation and the displacement of over 80000 residents of Ft. Mac Murray. As a school and community we all need to come together to help in any way we can.

This showcase will highlight some of the incredible young performers in our community.

Please join us on Saturday, May14 from 7:00-8:30pm at the St. Johns United Church to assist our community in supporting the displaced families of Ft .McMurray, Alberta.

A minimum donation of 5$ would be appreciated or give as you are able.

There will a bake sale, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross for the Relief program for Ft.McMurray.

We thank you in advance for helping us help them.


Our first Spring Clean-Up was a wonderful success.  Thanks to the RiverLake Compassion Project steering committee for organizing us all.  Thanks to those who made cookies and drove trucks.  And, thank you to all those who served our community but cleaning it up.  Amazing the difference a morning of serving together can make, hey?
