?It was amazing? says Dakota Rochon when asked about the TR Youth trip to YC in Edmonton. ?This is our third year and each year it just keeps getting bigger and better.?
It wouldn?t have been possible without the the generous donations of Maple Leaf Transportation, Western Canadian Coal, Tumbler Ridge Lions Club, Avalanche Trucking, M & R Maintenance, Westmar, CJG, Pelly Construction, C.Friesen Holdings, and the Tumbler Ridge Fellowship Baptist Church. Because of these people 44 youth and chaperones were able to have an amazing weekend experience listening to great speakers and rocking out to amazing bands.
Many people and companies also participated in helping with fundraising: Thanks to the Bottle Depot and Carmen for your help and patience as we did a two day massive bottle drive. Thanks to Lorraine Funk for allowing us to keep the public informed on how things were going through Tumbler Ridge News. Thanks to: Proteus Business Solutions, Eye for Detail Photography, Shop Easy, Sanctuary Valley, Northern Metalics, Dragon Palace, Vinnies, Sheila?s, TR Inn, TR Reality, Jade True Value, Tags, The Dollar Store, Mac?s on Main from Tumbler Ridge for your generous dontations of items for the Auction Fundraiser. Thanks to: Northern Toybox, Corlane Sporting Goods, Simple Pleasures, B&T, Mom?s to Be, Dawson Creek Art Gallery, Old Creek Store, Walmart, Zellers, Dawson Creek Coop, Whitespot, McDonalds, Butcher Block in Dawson Creek for the amazing auction items donated.
