Western Financial in Vermilion held a Customer Appreciation Barbeque and Bake Sale on May 24. Customers enjoyed pork on a bun, drinks, and a selection of home-baked goods and the proceeds contributed to different projects in Vermilion. Half of the proceeds from the day went to support the ‘Friends of Vermilion Elementary School,’ and through the Western Communities Foundation, the other half will help fund projects in Vermilion.
Branch Manager, Melissa Young said, “We really appreciate the support that the community has given us over the years. Because of the support towards the Western Communities Foundation, we have been able to give scholarships and infrastructure grants within Vermilion.
With Fundraising going until June 1, the Vermilion Western Financial Staff will be doing a 5-kilometer walk around town on May 30, to help support the cause.
