Thank you Lake Cowichan for Tour de Rock success from RCMP

RCMP thank Lake Cowichan and community for helping to make the Tour de Rock 2014 a success.

The Lake Cowichan RCMP would like to take this time to publically thank everyone who helped make the 2014 Cops for Cancer tour into Lake Cowichan so successful this year and to single out the schools and businesses that went above and beyond to help the cause.

Lake Cowichan School – for hosting the first of two events in Lake Cowichan. It was fantastic.  The BBQ and Carnival raised a total of $599.70 and they still have one more fundraiser ending on Oct. 17, 2014.  They are raffling a spectacular mountain bike.  Good luck to all who participate.

Palsson Elementary School – for hosting the second of two events in Lake Cowichan. The riders loved seeing all of the kids in the gym. The school raised a total of $680.00.  Great work students and staff.

Country Grocer – for their enormous food contribution to feed the riders and their support staff as well as fully stocking the high school BBQ. The store managed to raise $2795.00 for the cause this year which is outstanding.  Thank you everyone for participating in the km marker program again.

Irly Building Center – for advertising the Cops for Cancer ride into Lake Cowichan and for supplying all of the wood stakes needed for the Country Grocer km marker program.

Riverside Inn – for advertising the Cops for Cancer ride into Lake Cowichan.

Duncan M&M Meats – for donating tasty burgers for the high school BBQ.

LCS Leadership Class – for designing all the signs and banners displayed around town, for set-up and take down on event day and for manning the BBQ.

Canadian Cancer Society of Duncan – donating all of the balloons and t-shirts.

At final tally, the town of Lake Cowichan managed to raise a total of $4133.80.  Well done all of you and thank you for your contribution.
