Grad class leaves walkway legacy

LCSS class of 2013 donates to walkway project in Lake Cowichan

On a foggy Thanksgiving morning, Leah Hudson, Sidney Allan, Darien Robertson, and Nikki Gibson, representing the 2013 Lake Cowichan Secondary School’s graduating class, presented a cheque for $5,000 to Mayor Ross Forrest.

The money is to be used to help pay for the construction costs of the Saywell Park Floating Walkway.

The money was excess from their fundraising for their grad class’s white-water rafting trip. They decided to donate it to the community walk way to leave a legacy for their class.

Councillor Bob K. Day thanked them saying “Like many projects, trying to stay within budget is sometimes difficult and this money will make sure the Lake Cowichan taxpayer will not have to dip into their pockets to cover any cost overruns.”

The grad class will have a plaque placed on one of the benches commemorating their donation.
