In 2018 River Bourgeois Community Services Society accomplishments:
The Youth Committee saw the installation of their new children’s playground. Thanks to the Municipality of Richmond for the $7500. grant. They also continue in their quest to raise funds towards the splash pad.
The 40th Annual Festival celebrated their “Ruby Jubilee” anniversary. Net income was $11798.95.
Tara Lynne Bursaries were awarded to Jaden Bona and Emily O’Brian.
Chase the Ace and the Cafe’ began in April and is continuing. The Ace was drawn in July, so we started again the following week. The current jackpot is now $4800. plus. The profits from this successful project has enabled RBCSS to pay our day to day operational expenses.
We had several other fundraisers during 2018 including: the Robert Bouchard Concert, Trivia Nights, Cold Plate takeout, and our Winterlude dinner.
Summer Student Grants from the Provincial and Federal Government allowed us to hire Emilee Poaps as our Festival Co-ordinator and Alexander Poaps as our Property Caretaker.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
