Thank You Country Grocer: Gift to School

posted Nov 27, 2013, 1:30 PM by Leah Ashford
This past Halloween, Country Grocer was happy to revive its tradition of donating pumpkins to the Salt Spring Island elementary schools. They added a follow up fun contest for those children who wished to participate and shoppers were to vote on carved pumpkins to determine which three would win a $75 gift certificate. They reviewed this and thought it would make more sense to give a $75 gift certificate to each of the elementary schools making all the children  "winners". So we would like to thank Richard MacKinnon, Community Relations, at Country Grocer for this gift which we will use toward the holiday season events at the school.
