“I would like to thank our sponsors Ken and Josie Pashulka from Rusylvia Cattle Co. for the beef sponsorship and for the $500 they donated to the seniors, and Don and Debbie Gulayec of Deeze Farms Ltd. for the freezer sponsorship. I would also like to thank Tony Neilson for his donation and the printing of the tickets for the draw. I want to thank everyone who donated, sold tickets, and bought tickets. It was a great fundraiser for our club and I hope we can do it again next year,” commented Romaniuk.
