In Vermilion, the local Order of the Eastern Star (OES) Chapter, in collaboration with Cornerstone Co-op, held a Hot Dog and Hamburger Sale on August 3, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event was a resounding success, with community members joining forces to not only indulge in delicious treats but also to contribute to a noble cause.

The proceeds from the event were dedicated to the guide dog program in Alberta, specifically benefiting the BC/AB Guide Dogs organization. The Queen Esther Chapter OES, known for its unwavering support for Guide Dog Programs across Canada and the United States, demonstrated once again the power of community collaboration.

The event wasn’t just about fundraising – it aimed to raise awareness about the exceptional abilities of service dogs and their transformative impact on the lives of their owners and families. These incredible animals serve a myriad of roles, from guiding the visually impaired to alerting the hearing impaired, offering assistance to individuals with mobility challenges, and providing essential emotional support.

The Hot Dog and Hamburger Sale not only satisfied appetites but also ignited a spark of compassion and appreciation for the service dogs that play an integral role in society.
