SD&G – In the week leading up to Christmas, several area groups and organizations were giving out money and gifts.

The United Counties of SD&G received $7,500 from Enbridge on Thursday (Dec. 17) to purchase new emergency management communication and training equipment.

At Longue Sault Public School on Friday (Dec. 18), the school council announced $1,000 had been raised through bake sales and a local farmer’s market, which is being donated to the township.

It will be used to offset the cost of paving the outdoor rink and new basketball nets for Arnold Bethune Memorial Park.

In Lancaster on Wednesday (Dec. 16), members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 544 presented the council with a print of The Glengarry Settler, the same painting that hangs at Queen’s Park.

It was to thank the council for its support on various projects including the relocation of the Lancaster cenotaph, rehabilitating the Williamstown cenotaph and the expansion of the Legion building on Military Road.
