Last Wednesday, at the municipality of Fort-Coulonge Council meeting, the Council thanked two young students from Bishop Smith Catholic Secondary School in Pembroke for donating $535.80 to the municipality.
Reese Lythgoe and Meghan Maynard took the initiative to organize a show for the benefit of those affected by the floods. They spent several hours organizing the event and many people wanted to get involved.
The two students chose to share the proceeds of the event between the Municipality of Fort-Coulonge and the Municipality of Whitewater Region, Ontario. On behalf of the municipality, the Fort-Coulonge council expressed their gratitude and congratulated the two young students for their initiative and gesture.
